It's not necessarily scandalous to use non-government email accounts, but Trump's presidential campaign spent almost two years painting Clinton's email use as a disqualifier, even leading chants of "lock her up!" at his rallies.
As Tapper reports, CNN first learned of Burr and Warner's letter to Kushner via the self-described "email prankster" who's managed to trick several Trump officials into embarrassing and potentially unsafe correspondences over the past several months.
The review appears to have emerged from recent reports of current and former White House officials using private email accounts and personal phones for administrative business, despite being advised not to do so.
While many believe Clinton's emails were overemphasized during the campaign, and while possible violations of the Presidential Records Act may be dwarfed by other Trump White House investigations, the use of private emails by Trump advisers deserves the same level of scrutiny as Clinton's emails.
Two days ago, the fake Jared prankster asked for legal advice, from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, about whether he should remove correspondence on his private email account, featuring "adult content".
Kushner is a person of interest in the ongoing probe into Russia's alleged intervention in the 2016 presidential election that yielded President Trump.
Hopefully he learned his lesson by the time he reached the White House, but in his time as governor on Indiana, Pence used a private AOL email address to conduct governmental business. It is also expected to scrutinise whether any classified information was put at risk.
CNN's Eli Watkins and Betsy Klein contributed to the report. Kushner's lawyer, Abbe Lowell, said Kushner complied with government record-keeping rules by forwarding all the emails to his official account.
