Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump reportedly have a third private email account

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have a third email account on their private domain that is now being reviewed by White House officials, three people with knowledge of the matter told Politico Monday.

It was reported in September that President Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law and senior adviser Kushner set up personal email accounts on their domain and used them to conduct government business. This third email account was used to send and receive travel documents, internal schedules, and official White House materials, Politico reports. Many of the emails were sent by Trump to her assistant, Bridges Lamar, and household staff had access to the account, Politico says. A majority of the emails sent to this account were from official White House email addresses.

Kushner set the domain up in December, and since January, hundreds of emails have been sent from White House email addresses to the accounts on the private Kushner domain, the sources told Politico. Kushner's attorney has said his client used his account to exchange fewer than 100 emails with his White House coworkers, and all of the messages were then forwarded to his White House email to comply with government record-keeping requirements.
