Despite his years of experience in dealing with some of Washington’s highest profile legal cases, top lawyer Abbe Lowell fell for a simple email prank which caused him to reveal some of the tactics employed in defending his client Jared Kushner.
Kushner has reportedly used his private email account for work related issues while serving as President Trump’s senior adviser.
In the email exchange with the person posing as Kushner, Lowell tried to warn against disposing of any emails from his account, and inquired into the nature of the “adult content” mentioned.
“I’m so embarrassed. It’s fairly specialist stuff, half naked women on a trampoline, standing on lego scenes, the tag for the movie was #standingOnTheLittlePeople :(,” the prankster wrote Lowell, asking if they could “bury” the whole thing.
Lowell replied: “Don’t delete. Don’t send to anyone. Let’s chat in a bit.”
