House Democrats start investigation Kushner’s use of private email

A high-ranking lawmaker in the US House of Representatives has officially announced the start of an investigation into use of a private email account by US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Maryland Democratic Representative Elijah Cummings wrote a letter to Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband, on Monday, calling on him not to scrap any potential evidence.

“Before requesting copies or calling for the public release of all official emails you sent or received on your personal email account, I first request that you preserve all official records and copies of records in your custody or control,” wrote the top Democrat on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. “Your actions in response to the preservation request and the information you provide in response to this letter will help determine the next steps in this investigation.”
