Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Jared Kushner Used Private Email Account for White House Business

According to a report from Politico, President Donald Trump’s adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, used a private and official email account to communicate with other government officials.

Kushner set up the email account during the transition period last year and has used it since December to correspond with top aides such as former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, and National Economic Council director Gary Cohn, among others.

“Mr. Kushner uses his White House email address to conduct White House business,” Abbe Lowell, a lawyer for Kushner, said in a statement Sunday.

Lowell also noted in the statement:

Fewer than 100 emails from January through August were either sent to or returned by Mr. Kushner to colleagues in the White House from his personal email account. These 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.

Prior to joining his father-in-law in the White House, Kushner worked on the 2016 campaign, which often attacked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for setting up and using a private email server while working for the Obama administration.

Chants of “lock her up” still erupt at Trump rallies — however, the president recently appeared to pass the buck to his attorney general: “You got to speak to Jeff Sessions about that,” Trump said after a rally crowd in Alabama called for the president to imprison the former first lady.

While some see this latest revelations as proof of a double standard, others say critics of the White House are jumping to conclusions and that Kushner’s use of a private email server differs from Clinton.

“This story falls way short of the Clinton’s scandal’s complications,” Law Newz writes.
