The email scandal of the 2016 election will go down as one of the most notorious political snafus in history. Hillary Clinton lost the election, and the emails were one of the main reasons. She was untrustworthy and unable to be fit for president. She used her personal email for top secret information that may have led to hackings and other things. Well, there may be another email scandal within the Trump Administration.
Jared Kushner, one of Trump’s top advisors, is being investigated right now for his use of personal emails. The emails between Kushner’s personal account and his White House colleagues number fewer than 100, Kushner’s attorney, Abbe Lowell, said in a statement relayed by NPR’s Tamara Keith.
“Mr. Kushner uses his White House email address to conduct White House business,” Lowell said in the statement.
Here’s the full statement from Kushner’s attorney, Abbe Lowell:
“Mr. Kushner uses his White House email address to conduct White House business. Fewer than a hundred 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. 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. All non-personal emails were forwarded to his official address and all have been preserved in any event.”
To me, I think Kushner is completely in the clear for his actions. He sent minimal emails and those that he did send were not important or filled with secrets. Jared simply sent emails to his colleagues while on his phone. Something that we all do without hesitation. Do you think that this investigation should continue into Jared Kushner?
