At least six of Donald Trump’s White House current and former advisers have used private email accounts to discuss government matters, according to the New York Times.

News that Trump’s son-on-law and top White House advisor Jared Kushner used a private email account for around 100 work-related emails served as a catalyst for disclosure of several more aides using private addresses, the Times reports.

Besides Kushner, former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon, former chief of staff Reince Priebus, Director of the National Economic Council Gary Cohn, senior policy advisor Stephen Miller and Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump also occasionally used private emails to discuss White House matters.

“All White House personnel have been instructed to use official email to conduct all government related work,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the Times. “They are further instructed that if they receive work-related communication on personal accounts, they should be forwarded to official email accounts.”
