"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", the Maryland Democrat said.

Ivanka Trump, US President Donald Trump's daughter, sent hundreds of emails previous year to White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistants using a personal account, many of them in violation of federal records rules, the media reported. The group's executive director, Austin Evers, said in a statement that "The president's family is not above the law", and he called on Congress to investigate.

A White House review showed that Ivanka Trump sent dozens of government-related emails to and from a private account, and hundreds related to her West Wing schedule, in the first half of 2017.

The White House did not immediately comment, but Trump's ethics attorney, Abbe Lowell, acknowledged that the first daughter sometimes used her private account while she was transitioning into government. But the plot thickens, thanks to Trump's infamous-slamming of Democratic presidential candidate of 2016, Hilary Clinton, for her use of personal email. "They weren't deleted like Hillary Clinton, who deleted 33,000". And he will pressure President Donald Trump's administration to turn over records about the use of private email for public business by Ivanka Trump, Kushner and other senior officials.

"Cue the chant?" tweeted Rep. Joyce Beatty, D-Ohio, in a nod to Trump supporters' frequent cries of "Lock her up!" at the president's rallies.

He insisted no classified information was sent, no emails were deleted, and that the messages were retained to conform with records laws.

New revelations about the extent of Ivanka Trump's personal email use in the White House will be getting a hard look from House Democrats when they take power in January. "My main priority as Chairman will be to focus on the issues that impact Americans in their everyday lives". Clinton said she never knowingly emailed classified information; the Federal Bureau of Investigation found classified information in some of the emails that were sent or received through her private server.

The letter says that the "parallels between Ms. Trump's conduct and that of Secretary Clinton are inescapable" and that an investigation is required to determine if materials have been adequately collected, whether there were cybersecurity breaches, and whether any classified materials are involved or rules were broken.

Suffice to say, Ms Trump won't be forgetting the rules in a hurry. But the White House didn't provide the requested information, he said.

Rep. Cummings released a statement acknowledging that lawmakers had planned to investigate personal email use by White House staffers in 2017. "Ms. Trump sometimes used her private account, nearly always for logistics and scheduling concerning her family", said the spokesman, Peter Mirijanian.

She'd been found to use a private email server while Secretary of State, prompting two separate FBI investigations, one of which was announced a week before voting began for the US Presidential Election.

News of her email practices spawned accusations of hypocrisy.
