The White House private email saga continues. Officials are now reviewing a third, previously undisclosed email account Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump shared.

Politico reports the account received "hundreds" of White House emails containing things like travel documents, internal schedules and some official government material.

The outlet also says the family shared the account with household staff for scheduling purposes.

Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, and Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and adviser, are already under scrutiny for their reported use of private email.

The White House launched a probe last week following reports that several senior advisers, both past and present, occasionally used personal accounts to discuss government matters.

The New York Times reported those known to have used private email for government business are Kushner, Ivanka Trump, former chief of staff Reince Priebus, former chief strategist Steve Bannon, National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn and senior policy adviser Stephen Miller.

Previously, Newsweek reported Ivanka Trump used a personal account to contact a government official at least once in February when she was an unofficial member of the administration.

A representative for Kushner and Trump told Politico that Trump has been careful about separating her personal and work life and that her emails have been saved on the White House system.
