Just days after reports that both Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump used personal emails to conduct White House business, the two moved their private accounts to Trump Organization computers. The move certainly appears on its face to be an effort to evade investigators in the dumbest and most ham handed of ways, naturally. USA Today writes:
The move, made just days after Kushner’s use of a personal email account first became public, came shortly after special counsel Robert Mueller asked the White House to turn over records related to his investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion with Trump associates. It also more closely intertwines President Trump’s administration with his constellation of private businesses. […]
According to internet registration records reviewed by USA TODAY and cybersecurity researchers, Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump, who is also a senior adviser, switched the location of their email accounts to a server operated by the Trump Organization on either Sept. 26 or 27, as attention from the media and lawmakers intensified.
Jared and Ivanka’s private email use for White House business first came to light on Sept. 24.
The two also received hundreds of government-related emails on a third private account linked to the the Kushner family domain.
Hundreds of emails have been sent since January from White House addresses to accounts on the Kushner family domain, these people said. Many of those emails went not to Kushner’s or Ivanka Trump’s personal addresses but to an account they both had access to and shared with their personal household staff for family scheduling.
Next we’ll find out Jared and Ivanka worked exclusively over personal email.
