The New York Times reported Monday that at least six of President Donald Trump’s closest advisers have talked about White House business over personal email. Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, has used personal email for receiving or sending around 100 emails related to the White House, his lawyer confirmed on Sunday.
What do we know?
- The emails in question were all forwarded to his official White House email account to create a record, according to his lawyer, Abbe Lowell.
- Politico first reported the story.
- There is no indication that Kushner has handled sensitive or classified information with his personal email.
“No one is accusing Kushner of emailing classified documents,” Glenn said on radio Tuesday. Because there are no accusations of mishandling classified material, Kushner’s case can’t be compared to Hillary Clinton’s, Glenn asserted.
As secretary of state, Clinton infamously used a personal email account, a mistake that dogged her throughout the 2016 election.
