ivanka trump was caught in a "hypocritical" act after using a personal email account to send a number of emails discussing government business.

Two former high-ranking White House officials labelled the act as a hypocrisy after Ivanka's father, also known as president trump criticised harshly Hillary Clinton for using a private email server during the 2016 presidential campaign.

the White House conducted an investigation after emails released by the watchdog group American Oversight revealed that Ivanka, 37, who serves as a White House adviser to her father President Donald Trump, sent nearly 100 emails to White House aides, Cabinet members and her personal assistants from the private email account with a domain she shares with her husband Jared Kushner.

former White House legislative affairs director Marc Short said: "I accept that today's story is an ironic one and shows hypocrisy and is a mistake, and the administration shouldn't have had government emails going to private emails servers," he said, adding that "all of the emails have been handed back over to the federal government."

former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci made a similar point saying that the act is certainly hypocritical and that Ivanka certainly knew it's a bad thing to do, he added then that she must have a reason why she was doing that

noting that Secretary Clinton is in the same shoe as Trump.

The White House had no comment on Ivanka Trump's email practices.
