Liberal Twitter users were frenzied this morning, trying to bring as much shame as they possibly could to the White House.
That’s because a new report seems to indicate that First Lady Melania Trump has been using a personal email account in the West Wing.
Melania Trump regularly used a private Trump Organization email account, an email from a MelaniaTrump.com domain, iMessage and the encrypted messaging app, Signal, while in the White House, according to her former senior adviser and close friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who says she corresponded multiple times a day with the first lady. “Melania and I both didn’t use White House emails,” says Winston Wolkoff, in an interview with The Washington Post, upon the publication of her tell-all memoir, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady.”
The Post has viewed messages dated after the inauguration that appear to be from private email and messaging accounts used by Melania Trump. The messages contained discussions of government hires and contracts (including Winston Wolkoff’s), detailed schedules for the president and first lady during the Israeli and Japanese state visits, strategic partnerships for the first lady’s Be Best initiative, the logistics of the Easter Egg Roll, and finances for the presidential inauguration, key parts of which Winston Wolkoff, an experienced New York City events producer, planned.
The left pounced on the story, regurgitating the attacks leveled against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after she was caught using a private server hidden in the bathroom of the State Department.
#LockHerUp was briefly trending on Twitter after the news broke.
