The Senate Intelligence Committee Wants to Wring Jared Kushner's Neck

Use of personal devices widespread in Trump's West Wing

Politico's source said Reince Priebus, Trump's former chief of staff, as well as Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert attended the classified meeting. The White House also seeks to make sure the emails are preserved in accordance with federal law, the person said.

Even if Kushner used the personal account for mostly incidental items, as his lawyer insists, simply by virtue of being so close to the president everything he says and does is of interest to other parties. The counsel's office is reviewing accounts to find out if the messages are relevant for investigations such as the Russian Federation probes spearheaded by special counsel Robert Mueller and Congress, sources told Politico.

The correspondence "most often occurred when someone initiated the exchange by sending an email to his personal, rather than his White House, address", Lowell said. Kushner reportedly ruffled feathers on Capitol Hill by not being forthcoming about the personal e-mail account he has been using for months to communicate about elements of official White House business with other West Wing staffers. Predictably, the news prompted a response resentful response from former Hillary Clinton, who was repeatedly criticized by President Trump during the 2016 election campaign for her own private email use.

NSA officials advised White Officials officials against using personal email accounts and cellphones over concerns of espionage by Russia, China, Iran or others.

Specifically, Kushner was aware that using a personal device for work would give cypberspies access to their work computers and emails. For staffers who are unaccustomed to working in secure spaces and with classified materials, the briefings are created to raise awareness about the risks of using personal devices and email accounts.

The internal White House review comes after the leaders of the House Oversight Committee opened an investigation earlier this week into the use of private email and encrypted communications software at the White House. The group said it obtained the emails in June through a Freedom of Information Act request.

NSA officials told White House aides that they should assume that their private email accounts have already been hacked by cyberspies. "He was focused on implementing the proper processes and structures to protect the White House and its staff, including Jared".
