There is yet another private email server scandal brewing in the White House.
According to ABC News, President Trump’s son-in-law and White House executive, Jared Kushner, has been using his private email to communicate with lower level staff, his attorney confirmed on Monday.
“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,” Kushner attorney Abbe Lowell said in a statement.
Lowell said the emails were “usually forwarded news articles or political commentary,” and “most often occurred” when someone “initiated the exchange by sending an email to his personal” account.
Politico first reported on the development, which also included some emails being recorded on Kushner’s official account.
“All non-personal emails were forwarded to his official address and all have been preserved, in any event,” Lowell said.
There was no mention of classified information in any of the email exchanges in question, something Hillary Clinton was slammed for putting in her private emails.
Trump has continually lambasted Clinton for use of a private server, both on the campaign trail and as president.
This month, he took to Twitter to bash her, writing: “Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, ‘bleached’ emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?”
That tweet was in regards to what he felt was the hypocritical handling of the Russia probe.
