Ivanka, Jared Have Third Email Account, Private Server At Trump Tower

You can't even plumb the depths of hypocrisy in this White House. Lock them up.

Not only does the Trump White House Department of Nepotism (Ivanka and Jared) have yet another private email account (the third) being used to discuss official White House business.

They have a private email server. Hosted at Trump Tower. Politico, emphasis added:

The existence of additional accounts on the family domain beyond the two personal accounts used by Kushner and Ivanka Trump and reported earlier raises new questions about the extent of personal email use by the couple during their time as White House aides. Their use of private email accounts for White House business also raises concerns about the security of potentially sensitive government documents, which have been forwarded to private accounts.

The family has declined to say what privacy measures have been placed on the domain, but a person familiar with the setup said some security measures were taken when it was installed.

Many of the emails came from Ivanka Trump’s assistant and included work-related “data,” according to a person familiar with the exchanges. Such messages were sent “daily,” this person added.

They’ve pretty much been using it since they got here,” this person said.

Hey Ivanka, the Republican National Convention 2016 called, they want to pretend their "lock her up" chant never happened. Or that it doesn't apply to you because IOKYAR and you're rich and young and too beautiful for prison.


Steve Benen at MaddowBlog, again, emphasis added:

Assorted Trump allies in conservative media have, at least for now, been willing to defend the problem as a “rookie mistake.” And it may be tempting to agree under the circumstances: people with no experience in government or public service were suddenly running the executive branch of a global superpower. Perhaps, the argument goes, they didn’t fully appreciate the rules.

The trouble with the defense is that it’s absurd. If Kushner and other top officials in Trump’s orbit were told not to use private email, were reminded by the NSA not to use private email, and had just wrapped up a campaign based largely on a government official’s use of private email, it’s hard to take seriously the idea that these folks were innocent rookies who had no idea what they were supposed to do.

All of which raises the related question of why, exactly, so many members of Team Trump ignored the instructions and pretended the rules didn’t apply to them.
