Washington - President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and close adviser, Jared Kushner, has used a private email account alongside his official White House account to exchange messages with other administration officials, Politico reported on Sunday.

Politico said the emails included correspondence about media coverage, event planning and other subjects and Kushner’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, said Kushner complied with government record-keeping rules by forwarding all the emails to his official account.

During Trump’s 2016 election campaign, the Republican derided Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server for official correspondence when she was secretary of state under President Barack Obama.

Some of those messages were later determined to contain classified information.

Trump often led crowds in chants of “Lock her up!” during the campaign and vowed in October she would “be in jail” over the matter if he became president. He has since said he would not pursue prosecution.

Politico said other senior Trump aides had also used private email accounts, including former chief of staff Reince Priebus, former chief strategist Steve Bannon and economic adviser Gary Cohn.

“Mr. Kushner uses his White House email address to conduct White House business,” Politico quoted Lowell as saying.

“Fewer than 100 emails from January through August were either sent to or returned by Mr. Kushner to colleagues in the White House from his personal email account,” the lawyer said. “These usually forwarded news articles or political commentary and most often occurred when someone initiated the exchange by sending an email to his personal rather than his White House address.”

Many White House officials use personal phones to communicate by text message with reporters and others.

Such classic fake news and twisting .

Kushner does not have man official position

Kushner never solely just used his private email

Kushner never used it for top secrets

Nevertheless the whole Hillary email thing was way overblown . The focus should have been on her lackluster performance as Secretary of State particularly in the Middle East repeating our Iraq mistake

Drawing a parallel between Jared and the machasheifah is ridiculous. She posted classified information, Jared posted non-official information. She tried to delete her e-mails, Jared forwarded a copy of each to his government account.

Nice try, lamestream media, but your lack of credibility continues...

I agree it's a non-story, however, you are incorrect as to some of your points.

Kushner's official title in the White House is White House Innovations Director. He has an office and a budget. He also has a high security clearance.

The fact that he also used his government email doesn't mean using his personal one was proper.

Agreed he didn't use it for top secrets but he shouldn't be using it at all for official business.

Jared used a private email account on a publicly run server for non private use. Hillary used her own server for secrecy purposes and the ability to sanitize any records.

what a garbage comparison there's a big difference between using private email address than using a private server which is then wiped to hide her criminal activities

Whats your problem? Hillary used colorox wipes t wipe her e-mails clean. At least Jared probably used "trump" wipes to wipe it clean. (Prob a special boutique line made by Ivanka)

In all honesty, I posted many times that I agree with bernie, the email thing is nonsense. I never was a fan of it although it did the job! I just think Hillary was purely incompetent and did a dismal job as secretary of state.

It's well known that those who denigrate others, including name calling (and someone you don't even know, no less!) suffer from low self esteem. Why don't you do yourself a favor and stop broadcasting yours...
