Report: White House Reviewing Hundreds of Emails Connected to Private Kushner Domain

White House officials are analyzing “hundreds of emails” associated with a third, previously unreported, email account on the Kushner family’s private domain, Politico reports.


The account was shared by Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, and was also accessed by personal household staff and Trump’s assistant Bridges Lamar. According to Politico, the correspondences included “non-public travel documents, internal schedules and some official White House materials.”

“They’ve pretty much been using it since they got here,” a person familiar with the account told Politico.

The report raises new security concerns about White House associates’ use of private email accounts to conduct government business. It also raises questions of hypocrisy, as Donald Trump made a major issue of Hillary Clinton’s private email server during the 2016 presidential election.
