Still, Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, set up their private family domain late a year ago before moving to Washington from NY, according to people with knowledge of events as well as publicly available internet registration records.

President Trump still regularly leads "lock her up!" chants during rallies while - for some unknown reason - continuing to slam Hillary Clinton (in reference to her use of a private email server as secretary of state). Former press secretary Sean Spicer had warned his own communications staffers in February that using the encrypted apps could violate the Presidential Records Act.

Another person with knowledge of Kushner's email use said that others in the administration, including Stephen K. Bannon, the former chief strategist, and Reince Priebus, the former White House chief of staff, had also used personal email accounts for what could qualify as government business. A representative for Kushner wouldn't discuss potential security measures in place for the private email account, but there's no evidence Kushner ever used it to discuss sensitive information.

In a statement Sunday Sunday, Kushner attorney Abbe Lowell said fewer than 100 emails were sent from the adviser's personal account instead of from his White House account.

She was using the account to talk about "women's entrepreneurship" with other federal employees on February 28, before Trump officially joined her father's administration in March, according to an email published by American Oversight.

Mr Kushner is a senior presidential adviser and is married to Ivanka Trump.

Kushner reportedly set up the private email account during the transition period last December.

As the Politico reports, he is one of several aides who used their private email accounts for government matters, but so far, he is the one who matters the most. Lowell told the Times that all White House-related emails were forwarded to Kusner's official government address in order to create a record of the correspondence.

The emails usually concerned media coverage and event planning, according to Politico, who first reported the story.

There is a legitimate issue with Kushner that didn't exist during the bogus Republican Clinton email scandal.
