It was reported on Monday that Jared Kushner used a private email account to conduct official White House business. But how did that information leak?
Well, according to Business Insider, an internet troll posed as Kushner and emailed the White House adviser’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, and got him to open up about his client’s use of a private email account to conduct official White House business.
According to Business Insider, the prankster emailed Lowell on Monday asking the lawyer what he should do with the emails he sent from his private email that contained “some correspondence… featuring adult content.”
Lowell then asked if the adult content was forwarded from other White House officials.
“I think one was forwarded from a White House official, we had discussed a shared interest of sorts,” the troll responded. “It was unsolicited. Then there are a handful more, but not from officials.”
“I need to see I think all emails between you and WH (just for me and us),” Lowell replied. “We need to send any officials emails to your WH account. Not stuff like you asked about. None of those are going anywhere.”
The troll then asked if he should delete or keep the emails, which he claimed contained “half-naked women on a trampoline, standing on legoscenes.”
“Don’t delete,” Lowell said. “Don’t send to anyone. Let’s chat in a bit.”
