Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s White House e-mail blues deepened on Monday after revelations that the couple used a third private account to transact official government business.
“They’ve pretty much been using it since they got here,” an unidentified source told Politico about a shared account that Kushner and Trump used for travel plans, scheduling and other White House internal issues. Hundreds of official emails have apparently been sent to the account, which traded messages with government and private accounts.
The news compounds earlier Politico stories that unearthed two other private accounts - individual e-mail addresses belonging to Kushner and Trump. Kushner apparently set up a private server last December. The White House is now reviewing administration officials’ use of e-mail.
The e-mail stories have riled Democrats, whose presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was buffeted last fall by questions about her own private e-mail server - a controversy that President Trump himself stoked.
