Kushner’s And Ivanka’s Private Email Scandal Just Got a Lot Worse
The scandal surrounding Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump use of private email to conduct government business is bigger than previously thought. Hundreds of emails have been sent since January from White House addresses to a newly discovered email account on the Kushner family domain, Politico reports.
Citing three people familiar with the matter, Politico reports that U.S. investigators are reviewing hundreds of emails sent from the White House to a third email account associated with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, according to Politico.
“The emails went not sent to Kushner’s or Ivanka Trump’s personal addresses, but to an email account they both had access to and shared with their personal household staff,” the sources told Politico.
The emails, which included White House confidential documents and internal schedules, were in many cases sent from Ivanka Trump’s account, but occasionally came from other private accounts, one of the sources said.
The existence of additional accounts on the family domain beyond the two personal accounts used by Kushner and Ivanka Trump and reported earlier raises new questions about the extent of personal email use by the couple during their time as White House aides.
Their use of private email accounts for White House business also raises concerns about the security of potentially sensitive government documents, which have been forwarded to private accounts.
Kushner’s activities have been put under a microscope during the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. That probe, run by FBI special prosecutor Robert Mueller, is further reviewing possible obstruction of justice by the president and White House officials since the inauguration.
