Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in a letter to the White house that the use of private E-Mail accounts and messaging application WhatsApp senior administration officials “brings security and federal records.”
Cummings, Abbe Lowell, attorney for Kushner and Trump, told the Committee said that the first daughter you do not respond to official E-Mails that you get, will be retained in your personal account when it. Cummings said, to violate the Presidential Records Act appears to be.
However, only a few hours later, Lowell has a letter of his own questioning Cummings’ characterization. Lowell said he was referring to Trump the E-Mail before September 2017, and that he told Committee staff that she is now “always to the front office of your White house account.”
