Kushner accused of using WhatsApp, personal email to conduct official business: report


The House Oversight and Reform Committee has allegedly obtained information that senior White House adviser and ‘s son-in-law has used WhatsApp and his personal email to conduct official government business.

Committee Chairman (D-Md.) said in a letter to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone on Thursday that the panel gained confirmation from Kushner’s attorney indicating that Kushner “continues to use” the encrypted message service for government business, Politico reported Thursday.

Kushner’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, reportedly confirmed this detail to the Oversight panel during a Dec. 19 meeting with Cummings and Rep. (R-S.C.). Lowell reportedly said Kushner was acting in compliance with the law.
