Nick Merrill, former spokesman for Hillary Clinton, took aim at Ivanka Trump’s defense of her personal email practices, pointing to her father, President Trump’s, frequent attacks aimed at Clinton over her use of a private email server while she was secretary of State.
“We have so many other things to think about right now that are important to peoples’ lives and need solving, but this nonsense with Ivanka this morning was nothing short of outrageous,” Merrill tweeted Wednesday evening, referring to Ivanka Trump’s interview with ABC News earlier that day.
“This is the daughter of a man who marched around the country telling people that Hillary Clinton should go to jail over her emails, even after our nation’s law enforcement agencies concluded she had broken exactly 0 laws. Ivanka Trump sat, smiled, & nodded complicitly throughout,” he continued.
“This deserves scrutiny due to the sheer hypocrisy of it. Ivanka engaged in behavior when her father won an election in part by claiming such behavior should land a woman in jail,” Merrill wrote.
“The press should cover this and Congress should investigate, and we can see if anything is classified and determine whether Ivanka broke any rules.”
