Senior White House adviser Jared Kushner used a private email account for White House business, per Politco's Josh Dawsey. He used the personal account, set up during the transition in December, to correspond with former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, former chief strategist Steve Bannon, economic adviser Gary Cohn and spokesman Josh Raffel.

Why it matters: Trump repeatedly, and effectively, slammed Hillary Clinton during the campaign over her use of a private email server while serving as Secretary of State.
