Kushner Using Private Emails/Server


Jared Kushner is reported to have used a private email account and a personal server to send/reply to e-mails while working on White House business. Other White House aides have also used private accounts.

From Politico: "Kushner uses his private account alongside his official White House email account, sometimes trading emails with senior White House officials, outside advisers and others about media coverage, event planning and other subjects, according to four people familiar with the correspondence. POLITICO has seen and verified about two dozen emails."

Private emails and server use can help avoid the Presidential Records Act.

Details about the server and its security were not known, though the story says the private server was set up last fall during the transition to the White House.

Hmmm...wasn't the White House

Hmmm...wasn't the White House idiot all fired up about someone else using a private email server?
I think I remember something like that from the campaign....
Guess it makes a difference who's doing it.

Lock them all up : )

To me, it doesn't make a difference who's doing it. It's sloppy and amateur at best, and more likely intentional and deceptive, to avoid official records acts. Maybe some low-level first-time gov't official can argue that they made a mistake and didn't know - but anyone at the top who sets up a personal server then claims ignorance is lying.

But, yes, the irony is rather delicious here. People who screamed the loudest about impropriety of emails and servers just a year ago now caught doing the same thing.
