Donald Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump moved their personal email accounts—which the pair had used to conduct government business—onto servers run by the Trump Organization just days after reports revealed the existence of Kushner’s private email, USA Today reports.


The move also followed a request by Robert Mueller to submit all documents related to the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

On Sept. 24, Politico reported Kushner used a non-government email account—set up during the transition in tandem with his official White House email—to communicate with Trump associates. In a statement, Kushner’s lawyer Abbe Lowell confirmed “fewer than 100 emails from January through August were either sent to or returned by Mr. Kushner to colleagues in the White House from his personal email account.”

As USA Today notes, Kushner and Ivanka Trump moved their private email accounts to a Trump Organization server on “Sept. 26 or 27.”
