White House official caught using AOL email to discuss sensitive sale of nuclear technology to the Saudis

KT McFarland

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) revealed that Deputy National Security advisor K.T. McFarland was using a personal AOL.com email account to conduct official White House business.

A shocking Politico report uncovered the news when the House Oversight Committee requested documents from Kushner and other current and former White House officials.

The requested information uncovered senior White House aide Jared Kushner was using secret modes of communication like WhatsApp to talk with elected officials. Kushner told the officials that he was taking screen captures to ensure they were following open records requirements.

“Cummings said the document shows that McFarland was in communication with Tom Barrack, a longtime Trump confidant and the chairman of the president’s Inaugural Committee, about transferring ‘sensitive U.S. nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia,'” Politico reported.

Republicans were merciless in attacking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for using a private email server in some of her communications. It’s currently unknown if McFarland’s private email on the AOL server possesses classified information. The House hasn’t announced whether they’ll have a hearing about the private email use.

Paul Krugman: Trump’s ‘populism’ is a cruel joke that only harms those he’s claiming to help

Published

on

As president of the United States, Donald J. Trump has preached a right-wing brand of populism that often echoes Patrick Buchanan’s nationalist and protectionist themes and utter contempt for “elites” — and Trump’s rally in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday made it clear that he will be hitting those themes aggressively in his 2020 reelection campaign. But economist Paul Krugman, in a New York Times column published this week, outlines the many ways in which Trump’s “populism” is a cruel joke that only hurts the working class Americans he is claiming to look out for.
