6 top Trump advisers used private emails for White House business: report

09/26/2017

At least six top advisers to President Donald Trump have used private email to discuss White House matters, the New York Times reported (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/25/us/politics/private-email-trump-kushner-bannon.html?smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur) Monday. In addition to Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/kushner-used-private-email-account-for-white-house-business-report-2017-09-24), the list includes former top aides Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus, as well as economic adviser Gary Cohn, policy adviser Stephen Miller and Trump's daughter, Ivanka. The Times cited current and former government officials. It it not illegal for White House advisers to use private emails, but legally they must forward them to their official accounts so they can be archived. Private email accounts may also be more vulnerable to hackers. During the presidential campaign, Trump hammered away against Hillary Clinton for her use of private email servers.
