House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said Thursday that White House aide Ivanka Trump has not complied with federal laws requiring her to preserve all official email communications.

Cummings said in a letter to the White House counsel that Trump’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, told the committee last year that emails are not preserved if Trump did not respond to them. The Maryland Democrat said that is an apparent violation of the Presidential Records Act.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump used a private email account to discuss business from the White House, sending hundreds of emails about her official business and schedule to aides, Cabinet officials and personal assistants, The Washington Post reported in November.
