Get ready for the next White House e-mail (and Twitter) scandal

Get ready for the next White House e-mail (and Twitter) scandal | Ars Technica – With that sort of history—and particularly after President Donald Trump’s campaign frequently used Clinton’s e-mail woes against her last fall—one might imagine that the White House and Republican Party would be eager to show that it knows how to do IT security properly. But early on, it seems like such assumptions may be quite wrong.

In addition to a New York Times report saying that President Trump is still using his unsecured Android phone to continue posting missives to Twitter, Newsweek claims that members of the White House staff are using e-mail accounts hosted by the Republican National Committee through its rnchq.org mail server. And it appears that Press Secretary Sean Spicer has at least twice so far posted his password to his official White House Twitter account.
