White House Looking Into Advisers' Private Email Use

The White House has begun an internal investigation of private email use, pulling emails on its server to and from the private accounts of senior aides, Politico reported Thursday night.

The effort comes in the wake of a Politico report that senior adviser Jared Kushner and a number of other top officials used private email accounts throughout the year to conduct government business.

According to Politico, Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump's private email domain is of particular interest because they still work in the White House.

At least three other current and former White House officials also have used private email, Politico reported, including Gary Cohn, Steve Bannon, and Reince Priebus.

Kushner's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, has said there are fewer than 100 emails about government business in Kushner's private email domain, and have all been forwarded to his White House account, Politico reported.

The probe, which is being led by the White House counsel's office, could take several weeks or even months, and will determine if the messages are pertinent to any investigations already underway, Politico reported.
