Kushner, other White House use private email for official business

US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law has been using a private email account along with some other White House officials to conduct official business, his lawyer says.

White House senior advisor Jared Kushner has used the personal account to talk about different issues with figures such as former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, former chief strategist Steve Bannon and his father-in-law’s chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, Politico reported Sunday.

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