Information Released: Jared Kushner Uses Personal, Private Messaging Services For Official Government Business

Many on the left will never, ever forget those images of then Republican candidate for President Donald Trump on his campaign rallies getting his vast swathes of supporters to loudly chant Lock her up! Lock her up! He was, of course, referring to his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and her email scandal that was taking place at the time, in which it was alleged that she had used a private and insecure email server for government business during her time as Secretary of State. If we have learned one thing about Donald Trump and his family – who now, of course, occupy almost all the senior positions within the White House – during the time that he has been President of the United States and leader of the free world, it is that he is not afraid to be totally hypocritical and go directly against what he has said himself in the past just to get his way.

His son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is a senior adviser in the White House and is married to First Daughter and close aide to the President Ivanka Trump, is no exception to this rule. However, recent reports showing what he has been up to in private during the time he has been working in the White House have shocked even the most experienced journalists. Not only has he been doing the exact same thing that Hillary Clinton was so viciously attacked for, but he has gone even further and somehow been ten times more irresponsible with his handling of government communications:

Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and a senior White House aide, uses private messaging services to conduct official government business, according to new information released Thursday by congressional Democrats. As a candidate, Trump, his surrogates, and his supporters repeatedly advocated locking opponent Hillary Clinton in prison for using a private email server to conduct government business when she was secretary of state. On Thursday afternoon, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) sent a letter to the White House detailing Kushner’s use of both private email and encrypted apps like WhatsApp to conduct official White House business.

The revelations stem from conversations in December between Kushner’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, and Cummings, who is currently the chair of the House Oversight Committee. The letter adds that White House officials, such as Kushner, who use private messaging services for official communications appear to be violating the Presidential Records Act. “Specifically, when asked whether Mr. Kushner had ever used WhatsApp for official business, Mr. Lowell confirmed that Mr. Kushner has used — and continues to use — WhatsApp as part of his official duties in the White House,” the letter notes.

That’s right. Kushner has literally been using WhatsApp, a casual messenger service, to handle classified government information. How incompetent is it possible for a person to be?
