House Dems Vow to Investigate Trump Family
House Democrats have vowed to investigate Ivanka and Jared Kushner's use of private email accounts for official government business. The investigation will supposedly look to see whether the Trump administration is in compliance with the Presidential Records Act.

According to Fox News:

House Oversight Committee Democrats will investigate Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, in connection with use of private email accounts for official White House business, relaunching a 2017 probe into whether officials in President Trump's administration are complying with the Presidential Record Act.

Committee Ranking Member Elijah Cummings, D-Md., who is expected to become chairman at the beginning of the 116th Congress in January, said Tuesday he wants more information about Ivanka Trump’s use of a personal email account while conducting official administration business.

“We launched a bipartisan investigation last year into White House officials’ use of private email accounts for official business, but the White House never gave us the information we requested,” Cummings said in a statement to Fox News. “We need those documents to ensure that Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, and other officials are complying with federal records laws and there is a complete record of the activities of this Administration.”

In an interview on Tuesday afternoon, President Trump addressed the email dustup, among other topics. "Ivanka did some emails. They weren't classified like Hillary Clinton, they weren't deleted like Hillary Clinton,' the president said, adding that Ivanka "wasn't' doing anything to hide her emails, They're all in presidential records."

It is reported that the intent of the investigation is to prevent something like this from happening again and not turn it into a spectacle like what the Hillary investigation became.
