Way worse than Hillary: Third Kushner e-mail account revealed
Most conservatives outside of Trump’s obsessive deplorable base have dropped all discussion of alleged e-mail wrongdoing by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who has gone above and beyond the necessary mea culpas regarding the ill-advised use of a private e-mail server.
The reason? Jared Kushner’s e-mails! Last month saw revelations about not only “Golden Boy’s” use of a private e-mail address to conduct government business but that of several other White House aides and appointees. (And don’t get us started on Rex Tillerson’s underreported e-mail fiasco or, for that matter, Mike Pence’s corrupt and inept e-mail maneuvers.)
Yesterday, Senator Richard Burr, chairman of the Intelligence Committee, threw Kush a little cover by proclaiming that “did not mislead the committee about his private email server”. That lasted several hours – until this story started ricocheting through the intertubes late yesterday:
Hundreds of emails have been sent since January from White House addresses to accounts on the Kushner family domain, these people said. Many of those emails went not to Kushner’s or Ivanka Trump’s personal addresses but to an account they both had access to and shared with their personal household staff for family scheduling.
The emails — which include nonpublic travel documents, internal schedules and some official White House materials —were in many cases sent from Ivanka Trump, her assistant Bridges Lamar and others who work with the couple in the White House. The emails to the third account were largely sent from White House accounts but occasionally came from other private accounts, one of these people said.
The existence of additional accounts on the family domain beyond the two personal accounts used by Kushner and Ivanka Trump and reported earlier raises new questions about the extent of personal email use by the couple during their time as White House aides. Their use of private email accounts for White House business also raises concerns about the security of potentially sensitive government documents, which have been forwarded to private accounts.
The family has declined to say what privacy measures have been placed on the domain, but a person familiar with the setup said some security measures were taken when it was installed.
Many of the emails came from Ivanka Trump’s assistant and included work-related “data,” according to a person familiar with the exchanges. Such messages were sent “daily,” this person added.
“They’ve pretty much been using it since they got here,” this person said.
In a truly just world, the entire Trump-Kushner Crime Family would have been ejected from the White House and subsequently indicted for pretty much everything they had done since they invaded the West Wing. And we’re not just talking about Daddy, Golden Boy and Princess Royal – but that would be a good start.
