Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump transferred their personal email accounts to a server handled by The Trump Organization just days after news broke that Kushner had used a personal email account for White House business, according to USA Today. A spokesperson for Kushner and Trump denied the report, saying that their personal email accounts had never passed through a Trump Organization server.

Why it matters: The transfer of Kushner's emails to Trump servers would mean yet another entanglement of Trump's family business with his governance. Legal experts told USA Today that the arrangement could mean other employees at the Trump Organization might have access to Kushner's White House emails.

The full statement from a spokesperson for Kushner and Trump:

"Mr. Kushner's and Ms. Trump's personal family email account does not reside and never has resided in, nor passed through, the Trump Organization email server. As an additional security measure, this account used a filtering service (to block viruses and malware) as the Trump Organization and lots of other entities and people use. As previously stated, any work-related emails sent to or received from their personal family email account were captured and saved in the White House system for preservation purposes."

Scoop: Mike Bloomberg's anti-chaos theory

Mike Bloomberg's $100 million Florida blitz begins today and will continue "wall to wall" in all 10 TV markets through Election Day, advisers tell me.

Why it matters: Bloomberg thinks that Joe Biden putting away Florida is the most feasible way to head off the national chaos we could have if the outcome of Trump v. Biden remained uncertain long after Election Day.

Biden's hardline Russia reset

When he talks about Russia, Joe Biden has sounded like Ronald Reagan all summer, setting up a potential Day 1 confrontation with Russian President Vladimir Putin if Biden were to win.

Why it matters: Biden has promised a forceful response against Russia for both election interference and alleged bounty payments to target American troops in Afghanistan. But being tougher than President Trump could be the easy part. The risk is overdoing it and making diplomacy impossible.
