At Least 6 White House Advisers Used Private Email Accounts

Source: The Washington Post

WASHINGTON ó At least six of President Trumpís closest advisers occasionally used private email addresses to discuss White House matters, current and former officials said on Monday.

The disclosures came a day after news surfaced that Jared Kushner, the presidentís son-in-law and adviser, used a private email account to send or receive about 100 work-related emails during the administrationís first seven months. But Mr. Kushner was not alone. Stephen K. Bannon, the former chief White House strategist, and Reince Priebus, the former chief of staff, also occasionally used private email addresses. Other advisers, including Gary D. Cohn and Stephen Miller, sent or received at least a few emails on personal accounts, officials said.

Ivanka Trump, the presidentís elder daughter, who is married to Mr. Kushner, used a private account when she acted as an unpaid adviser in the first months of the administration, Newsweek reported Monday. Administration officials acknowledged that she also occasionally did so when she formally became a White House adviser. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter with reporters.

6. Where's the Republican outrage in Congress?

And where's the outrage from Republican voters? They were pissing themselves over Hillary's use of her private email, but not one word from them about Der Gropenfuhrer's son-in-law and his top advisors?

As usual, it's all about WHO commits the perceived infraction, not the infraction itself. Stinking hypocrites.

8. Probably to avoid FOIA requests:






Manages to keep the interaction (or transaction, more likely) from entering the public/journalistic record. He's really draining that swamp, etc... etc...

9. Absolutely shameless Republican hypocrisy

And not one Republican member of Congress will say a word or take any action.

15. That link didn't work for me...

...but it did without the extra stuff at the end, so...

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/25/us/politics/private-email-trump-kushner-bannon.html

Otherwise it took me to some product selling site.
