Washington Post: Ivanka Trump used a personal email account for government business: Ivanka Trump sent hundreds of emails last year to White House aides, Cabinet officials and her assistants using a personal account, many of them in violation of federal records rules, according to people familiar with a White House examination of her correspondence. ... She said she was not familiar with some details of the rules, according to people with knowledge of her reaction.

Unless private servers,

Unless private servers, bleach bit, hammers, and potentially classified info going to other countries are all involved no one gives a rat's ass.

Just a hunch.

And you guys don't get to spend 2-1/2 years trying to make "but her emails!" some sort of strange punchline and then make a big deal out of this.

Au contraire.

No, I think we do. When the R team spends years on "Benghazi!!1!!" and "Her Emails", it's ok by me if we spend a little time focusing on their hypocrisy.

a couple things

please don’t take this as a personal attack, but your post brought to mind a couple things—

1- all the mewling on the right about benghazi is indeed both hilarous and completely disingenuous , but i cant help but remind (for anyone who forgot) that the real (bipartisan) crime of libya was that we finally bombed and destablized the country after decades of using gaddafi as foil; alternately as the “evil dictator” and then sometimes as a “peace partner” depending on the needs of the west at the time. the story (among others) is told brilliantly by adam curtis in his film “hypernormalization” which you can watch here: (link...)

2- great podcast here: “the increasingly dull edge of hypocrisy takedowns”
(link...)

Hypocrisy takedowns – which reached peak popularity during the heyday of The Daily Show – have been the bread and butter of liberal discourse for years...
But as outright lying and contradiction were not only ignored but embraced by Trumpism, this worldview began to lose any remaining purchase...

Unless, uh, potential, uh, things also could have happened...

Unless private servers, bleach bit, hammers, and potentially classified info going to other countries are all involved...

The irony of that statement, with all its non sequiturs, is as stunning as the lack of self-awareness by its poster.

Given that HRC was investigated for months by the FBI and years by an insatiable media, it is her situation that no one should give a rat's ass about. Ivanka is currently in the administration and we should not look into this entire area because...??? Of course her Dad still leads the chants after HRC's case has long been closed by the FBI.

I'd dearly love to hear more about "bleach bit and hammers," though. Trump loved to embellish on them, clearly not knowing anything about them. He though the bleach-named product involved literal bleach, " a very expensive and dirty chemical process, by the way." Sheesh, what ignorant morons.
