The chairman of the House Oversight Committee is demanding documents related to the personal email and messaging accounts of top White House aides Jared Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump. Congressman Elijah Cummings of Maryland wrote in a letter to White House Counsel Pat Cipollone that Kushner has been using online messenger WhatsApp for official business. The Democrat claims that Ivanka Trump is using her personal email for official business. Both would be violations of federal records laws. Kushner's lawyer testified before the House Oversight Committee in December that he uses WhatsApp to communicate with people outside the United States, including Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
