A Washington watchdog group on Thursday accused Ivanka Trump, U.S. President Donald Trump’s daughter and one of his White House advisers, of using her Twitter account for both government and political commentary, a violation of U.S. federal law.

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington group said that in the early stages of Trump’s 2 1/2-year presidency, his 37-year-old daughter had primarily used her Twitter account to share messages about official government business. But CREW said since March 2018, Ivanka Trump had also posted multiple political statements, including this week promoting the kickoff rally for her father’s 2020 re-election bid.
