White House senior advisor and Donald Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner is trouble once again, this time for his use of a cell phone app designed to erase all traces of communication.
According to Splinter News, Kushner downloaded an application on his cellphone that allows him to send disappearing messages.
“Splinter has confirmed that Kushner downloaded an encrypted messaging application that permits users to send disappearing messages,” Splinter journalist Kashmir Hill reports. “The use of the app by White House officials has the potential to undermine the Presidential Records Act.”
According to the report, Kushner is not the only one using the encrypted app. Splinter also revealed Trump confidant and attorney Michael Cohen is using the App.
This is also the second time Kushner has been caught trying to conceal information by using a different line of communication. According to former Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, Kushner wanted to set up a secret “back channel” communications system with the Kremlim.
