Former White House Ethics Chief Reveals 'Disturbing' Ivanka Trump Emails

President Donald Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump conducted government affairs from a private email account before she was employed by the government. This is evident from records that received new attention this week.
Walter Shaub, former head of the United States Department of Government Ethics, highlighted two messages that were exposed by the bipartisan American Oversight surveillance group. He was in the ethics bureau under President Barack Obama for six months and resigned in the Trump presidency for six months.

One of the messages Shaub shared on Twitter seemed to show Ivanka Trump doing business with Education Minister Betsy DeVos almost a month before her official role:

Well, that's worrying. Ivanka Trump only became a government employee on March 29, 2017. This email is dated four weeks earlier. Why does she seem to be doing government business in this email she sent as a private individual?

Our investigation had previously uncovered several emails sent between Ivanka and senior cabinet officials, including those to Education Minister Betsy DeVos.

Another, which came a few days earlier, referred to a government official as her "chief of staff".

This exposed @weareoversight is even more worrying. A month before Ivanka Trump became a government official, she described a WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL as her own "chief of staff". Impressive! This is really crazy stuff. Good job, @weareoversight!

The organization exposed the news in 2017 at the request of the Freedom of Information Act. But they are receiving renewed attention in the wake of allegations in the upcoming book by former national security advisor John Bolton, which claims the president defended Saudi Arabia after Jamal Khashoggi's murder to distract attention from the news that Ivanka Trump is doing private government business have email.
The president scolded this behavior during the 2016 presidential campaign when it dealt with Hillary Clinton's private email server. The mere mention of the emails routinely resulted in them "locking them up" at his rallies.
The president's daughter was at the center of several ethical controversies during the Trump administration. In addition to using private email, she received at least 18 brands from China when the government tried to negotiate trade with the country.
