Report: Kushner Used Private Email Account

Top White House adviser Jared Kushner reportedly used a private email address to correspond with other senior Trump administration officials. Politico, citing four people familiar with the setup, reports that Kushner used the account to discuss “media coverage, event planning and other subjects.” But Kushner’s attorney Abbe Lowell said the account only contained “forwarded news articles or political commentary,” not official White House business, adding it “most often occurred when someone initiated the exchange by sending an email to his personal rather than his White House address.” Kushner reportedly corresponded with former chief of staff Reince Priebus, former chief strategist Stephan Bannon, and economic adviser Gary Cohn, among others. President Trump often scolded Hillary Clinton about her decision to exclusively use a personal email account and server while she served as secretary of state.
