Washington: Jared Kushner among several Trump administration officials alleged to have used personal email to conduct government business
The White House has launched an internal investigation after it emerged that Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, and other senior officials used personal email accounts for official business, Politico reported on Thursday.
Citing four unnamed officials, the news site said the investigators have begun pulling batches of emails on the White House server to and from the private accounts of senior aides.
Politico first reported last week that Kushner had used personal email for government matters. On Sunday his lawyer, Abbe Lowell, said there were fewer than a hundred emails about government business in Kushner’s private email domain, and that all had been forwarded to his White House account.
The investigation is being led by the White House counsel’s office, Politico added: “Of particular interest is Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s private email domain because they still work in the White House, two officials said. Accounts of other White House officials are also being reviewed.”
