Report: Kushner Used Private Email Account for White House Business

Jared Kushner, White House adviser and son-in-law of President Donald Trump, has used a private email account to communicate with other administration officials, Politico reported Sunday.

Kushner’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, told Politico he used the account to send “fewer than 100 emails from January through August” to communicate with former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, former chief strategist Steve Bannon, chief economic adviser Gary Cohn and others, the article explained.

“Mr. Kushner used his White House email address to conduct White House business,” Lowell told Politico in a statement.

Lowell also said the emails were “usually forwarded news articles or political commentary and most often occurred when someone initiated the exchange by sending an email to his personal rather than his White House address.”

Kushner reportedly set up the account during the transition period between last year’s presidential election and Trump’s inauguration.

Trump often attacked Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton
