White Residence Probing Pinnacle Officials’ Non-Public Electronic Mail Use

Washington (CNN) The White House has launched an internal review of White House officials’ use of private email accounts, a person familiar with the probe told CNN.
The counsel’s office has access to emails White House officials have sent and received on the White House’s internal server, but do not have access to officials’ private accounts beyond emails that were forwarded onto the White House server.
White House officials are instructed to use their official email addresses for government business and to forward any emails on their private accounts to their White House addresses relating to their official duties.
The review led by the White House Counsel’s Office comes less than a week after an attorney for Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law and senior adviser, confirmed that Kushner occasionally used his private email account in his dealings with other White House officials.
The White House Counsel’s Office inquiry is expected to focus on potential violations of the Presidential Records Act, a federal law that requires the president and White House staff preserve all official records.
