Officials are investigating a third private email account White House Adviser Jared Kushner Used earlier this year for scheduling purposes, according to a report Tuesday from ABC News.
The account comes as investigators are already reviewing two private accounts connected to Kushner and Ivanka Trump. White House staff is currently undergoing a review of the usage of the private emails for official business.
“The White House instructs staff to fully comply with the Presidential Records Act and applicable guidelines for work-related communications,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters Tuesday.
“In light of recent congressional inquiries, we have briefed staff on the need to preserve records and working to ensure compliance,” she added, referring to the need for staff to provide a record of the emails.
The third email account is part of a domain that Kushner established earlier this year called “ijkfamily.com,” sources told ABC News reporters.
Kushner’s use of a third account comes after reports surfaced showing President Donald Trump’s son-in-law sent emails from a private account earlier this year to White House colleagues.
Kushner’s private email usage also comes after a presidential campaign in which Trump and Republicans pilloried former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while in office.
There are no indication that Kushner sent any classified information over his private email.
