Newsweek: Trump White House Senior Staff Have Private RNC Email Accounts

Here is Nina Burleigh reporting for Newsweek:

Senior Trump administration staffers including Kellyanne Conway, Jared Kushner, Sean Spicer and Steve Bannon have active accounts on a Republican National Committee email system, Newsweek has learned.

The system ( is the same one the George W. Bush administration was accused of using to evade transparency rules after claiming to have “lost” 22 million emails.


But after then-candidate Donald Trump and the Republicans repeatedly called for “locking up” Hillary Clinton for handling government work with a private server while secretary of state, the new White House staff risks repeating the same mistake that dogged the Democrat’s presidential campaign. They also face a security challenge: The RNC email system, according to U.S. intelligence, was hacked during the 2016 race. “They better be careful after making such a huge ruckus over the private email over at the State Department,” says former Bush administration lawyer Richard Painter.

Something tells me all those Republicans who whipped themselves into a frenzy over Hillary's emails won't have a lot to say about this. The amount of hypocrisy from the right and its supporters would be laughable if it wasn't so insanely dangerous to our democracy.
