Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, has used a private email address he set up after the election to communicate about White House matters with other administration officials, Politico reported Sunday and Kushner’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, confirmed. Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, set up the private family domain and new email addresses in December.
Kushner mostly “uses his White House email address to conduct White House business,” Lowell said in a 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,” mostly “forwarded news articles or political commentary.” To comply with the Presidential Records Act, Kushner forwarded all non-personal emails to his White House account, Lowell said, and “all have been preserved in any event.” The lawyer did not say who determined which emails were personal and which were business-related.
