The White House Is Reportedly Investigating Aides' Private Emails

The White House Is Reportedly Investigating Aides' Private Emails”

The probe is focused on emails on the White House server sent to and from the private accounts of all staff, sources said.

The White House has begun efforts to conduct an internal probe of private email use, retrieving "batches of emails on the White House Server to and from private accounts of senior aides", according to Politico citing four officials familiar with the issue.

The review is meant to ensure that any information in private emails responsive to congressional probes of Russia's interference in the election is turned over to appropriate committees, the person said, adding that it should not be considered a formal investigation.

Lawyers for senior White House adviser Jared Kushner told ABC News that they have reviewed Kushner's private email account on which he conducted some official business since joining the administration, and found no messages related to the ongoing Russian Federation investigations. The Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday asked Lowell to review all his private email and any form of communication on other messaging services, given that Kushner did not reveal the email account in a private interview, Politico cited.

Previous reports show that former and current staff members - Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, Gary Cohn and Stephen Miller - have used private email accounts.

The use of private email accounts by Trump administration officials drew cries of hypocrisy from the President's critics due to his fervent criticism on the campaign trail of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email account during her time in the Obama administration. Most of the email exchanges were related to news articles and "political commentary", Lowell said.

Ivanka Trump also used a personal email account to conduct White House business, according to emails released by the advocacy group American Oversight. The group said it obtained the emails in June through a Freedom of Information Act request.

White House officials are instructed to use their official email addresses for government business and to forward any emails on their private accounts to their White House addresses relating to their official duties.
