WHOOPS: Trump Just Accidentally Incriminated Himself On Twitter In A New Email Scandal

The president just can’t stay off Twitter. This Tuesday night, he’s taken to the social media platform to rant and rave about a number of topics, including one of bis favorites — Hillary Clinton. Sure, the election ended over a year ago, but that doesn’t stop Trump from bringing it up over and over again. It’s a convenient distraction from the fact that Trump has gotten basically nothing significant done since taking office.

Tuesday night, he wrote on Twitter:

‘Charles McCullough, the respected fmr Intel Comm Inspector General, said public was misled on Crooked Hillary Emails. “Emails endangered National Security.” Why aren’t our deep State authorities looking at this? Rigged & corrupt? @TuckerCarlson @seanhannity’

There’s just one problem with Trump lashing out over Clinton’s emails yet again — members of his own team have also used private email accounts while on the job. Although there is not any immediately apparent indication that a member of the Trump team has transmitted classified information via their private email, which was the fear in the Clinton case, the possibility for such remains.

As former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti put it:

‘I guess this means we should investigate Trump White House officials who are using private email accounts to conduct official business.’

Trump associates to have used private email in the past include at least Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Stephen Miller, Gary Cohn, Reince Priebus, and Stephen K. Bannon — and Trump is apparently under the impression that private email issues should be made top priority.
