Betsy DeVos Used Private Email For Official Business In 'Limited' Cases

Source: Huffington Post

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has on occasion conducted government business through her personal email accounts, and she hasn’t always saved the messages properly, federal investigators said in a report released Monday.

According to the Education Department’s Office of Inspector General, the agency’s email system revealed a “limited” number of such communications that had been sent or received by DeVos’ personal accounts. These government-related messages had not been directed on to her department accounts, but did appear in the government accounts of other department staffers who were included on the emails.

In total, investigators found fewer than 100 such messages sent to or from DeVos’ four personal accounts between Jan. 20, 2017, and April 10, 2018.

“Most messages occurred during the first 6 months of 2017 and were from a single writer who was offering advice on potential candidates for Department positions,” the report read. Other messages were from individuals offering DeVos their congratulations on her confirmation to her new position along with advice.

2. Sure. Limited. Where are the republicans demanding her emails (like HRC's?) as well as all of ...

those emails she's probably already deleted? The sarcasm and hypocrisy with these people is ridiculous, especially after how they treated HRC.

3. Y'know...

Trump’s entire campaign against Hillary was based on her using nonofficial email servers. That Trump hasn’t fired DeVos for doing the same damn thing (plus the rest of his administration is doing it too) is something we can exploit next year.

6. But her emails!

Wait, if it's a Republican it's OK, right? Ivanka didn't get locked up.

How can you question the morals of someone who owns ten yachts and two helicopters and who won't forgive the student loan debts of anyone?
