Ivanka Trump compared her father's impeachment misery with Thomas Jefferson's complaints about a vicious and fraudulent Washington, receiving hoots from liberal Twitter users and a self-proclaimed conservative: Kellyanne Conway's husband George.

Quote a February 5, 1801 letter from Jefferson to his eldest daughter Martha, she tweeted that President Donald Trump was & # 39; … surrounded by enemies and spies who catch and twist every word that falls from my lips or flows out of my pen, and find out where facts them fall short & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Some things never change, Dad! & # 39; Ivanka added.

Jefferson was not yet president when he wrote the letter, but he had had a dose of Washington & # 39; s brutal bias – largely from federal opponents spreading rumors that he had conceived a child with a slave.

That was true. The third American president and Sally Hemings, whom he owned, had at least six children. The rumors would grow a year later into published allegations.

Conway grabbed one of Jefferson & # 39; s complaints and responded: & # 39; Inventing facts? Have you met your father? & # 39;

In his letter to his sister, Jefferson complained about & # 39; the eternal presence of strangers & # 39; in unknown Washington; and about & # 39; are worn out … with activities in which I am not happy & # 39 ;.

And he craved a & # 39; society where everything is peace and harmony, where we love and are loved by every object we see. & # 39;

Many on Twitter longed for something else on Thursday: a free chance for an heiress.

Sally Hemings

Thomas Jefferson's frustrations when he arrived in D.C. resulted from constant rumors that he had conceived a child with a slave woman he owned; that turned out to be true – six times – with Sally Hemings (right) as his mistress

& # 39; So, Ivanka, link things, & # 39; tweets Carnegie Endowment scientist David Rothkopf, and draws less comfortable comparisons.

& # 39; a.) Jefferson has worked his entire life to ensure that the president was not above the law b.) Jefferson was the first senior official who called for a president (Washington) to be dropped off because he was too close to a strange nation stands & # 39 ;, he wrote.

Quote a letter from Jefferson to his cousin George written just seven weeks after the one Ivanka cited – and three weeks in his first term – Hennessey showed that he was against nepotism.

George Conway, the anti-Trump husband of Kelly House Conway, White House counselor, pricked Ivanka to look at her own father for evidence of & # 39; finding out where facts fail & # 39;

& # 39; The public will never believe that an appointment of a family member is made solely on merit, not influenced by family views, & # 39; Jefferson wrote down March 27, 1801.

& # 39; Nor can they ever see w / approval agencies, which they entrust to their presidents for public purposes, divided as family property, & # 39; he added.

An accused litigation process took a major leap forward on Thursday with a word vote in the Lower House. The members approved a resolution that authorized the intelligence and judicial committees to play unclearly defined roles in a course that could lead to Trump's removal from office.

He called it a & # 39; hoax & # 39; on Thursday. and & # 39; The Greatest Witch Hunt in American History! & # 39;
