'Lock her up...?'

    Ivanka Trump used personal email for White House business

    Ivanka Trump used a personal email account to send hundreds of messages discussing official White House business last year, officials confirm.

    A review into her emails revealed she had used her private address to contact government officials.

    Ms Trump sent the emails before she was briefed on the rules, her lawyer says.

    In 2016, her father Donald Trump accused Hillary Clinton of putting the US "in danger" over her use of a private email while secretary of state.

    Reading this story earlier today made me laugh out loud and in a quite nasty, GIRUY kind of way.

    I know a lot of company directors that cannot be bothered to have anything more than one simple password for everything at work (and at home) but insist that everyone else that works for them must adhere to computer security policy and change their passwords every 4 weeks. I recall nice Mr Obama also preferred to use an Android device, despite being told by his own IT experts it could easily be hacked.

    Considering the anti-Trump lot argued that Clinton's actions didn't amount to anything I'm surprised this has been brought up.

    If you took the Clinton actions seriously... then fine. If you've since said it was a hoax or ''but what about her emails''... you really don't have a leg to stand on.

    I think it's the perceived hypocrisy within the Trump ranks which has led to posts about it - note the ? at the end of the thread title.

    She should have followed the UK's politicians' example: use WhatsApp to discuss anything meaningful away from the public eye and media scrutiny.

    Yes, I took for granted it was about the hypocrisy, surprised that anyone wouldn't.

    No, there is the question of Trump's hypocrisy.

    It's the hypocrisy.

    That doesn't always work out too well:

    Hundreds of leaked WhatsApp messages reportedly sent between Conservative MPs have revealed just how split the party is over Brexit.

    Not that we need a leak to know that ;).

    Hmmm OK, I'm listening

    Fair point- I don't think Trump has said that though has he?

    He "took the Clinton actions seriously" didn't he? I'm sure he lead chants of "lock her up" didn't he?

    So for him to ignore this latest breach would be wrong would it not?

    Not as bad as it sounds.

    Hundreds of leaks is nothing in comparison to the millions of messages exchanged.

    Presumably whatapps leaks must have come from someone reading the messages either on the sender's phone or the recipient phone and then passing them on. Whatsapp is encrypted and so interception and decryption is difficult (Even GCHQ are worried about it). So if the leaks are from humans they would probably leak whichever message system is used.

    The timing of this "story" about something that happened 14 months ago is pretty convenient...since this just happened.

    I'm guessing Hillary really, really doesn't wanna answer questions under oath about her illegal private email server, the hacking of confidential information and the illegal destruction of government records. Luckily for her, she still has her media helpers ready with a helpful defection.

    The washington post was talking about it 14 months ago.

    Im guessing that Trump is deploying chaff & flare again to deflect attention from Ivanka.

    How many FBI investigations has Clinton now had? And I mean real investigations, not Kavanaugh type investigations, lasting months ;).

    "Real" investigations? Zero.
