Ivanka Trump defended her use of a private email account in the White House on "Good Morning America" Wednesday - and also defended her father, President Donald Trump, from both the looming Russian Federation investigation and criticism over treatment of migrants at the border.

Despite this, both Democrats and Republicans alike have asked for more information regarding Trump's emails after it was reported she used her personal account to send hundreds of government emails past year.

Ivanka Trump has denied comparisons with Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email account for government business.

"All of my emails are stored and preserved". Then-FBI Director James Comey announced in the summer of 2016 that he would not recommend charges over her private email use, but called her handling of classified information "extremely careless". She said her missives were about "scheduling and logistics and managing the fact that I have a home life and a work life".

Chants of "lock her up" were a mainstay at Mr Trump's rallies - but his daughter told ABC that does not apply to her case. "There just is no equivalency between the two things".

After advising her father in an unofficial capacity for the first two months of his administration, she was appointed Advisor to the President, a government employee, from which she draws no salary.

"But the President told reporters at Mar-a-Lago last week that he's "given the OK" to use lethal force on the border, adding that he "(hopes) they don't have to".

Ivanka Trump, speaking to ABC News on Tuesday, said "there's no connection between" her email use and Clinton's situation.

She also said she thinks the investigation should come to an end, but she wants that to happen in a way that nobody can "question that it was hurried or rushed".

It is not illegal for White House officials to use a personal email, but they must forward any official messages to a government account within 20 days for preservation, and there are rules against sharing classified information on personal accounts.

Trump said the investigation should be allowed to run its course, but echoed her father's view that it has gone on long enough. "There were no deletions", President Donald Trump's elder daughter and adviser told ABC News in an interview broadcast today.

"He knows exactly where I stand on any issue", she said.

'I think it should reach its conclusion, ' she said.

The White House responded by saying Ms Trump had done so before being briefed on the rules and had not sent any classified information.
