Ole Miss alum Bridges Lamar named in Politico report involving Ivanka Trump’s private email domain

Published 6:47 pm Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Politico reported this week officials in the White House are looking at emails tied to another unreported email account on Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s private domain, many of which were sent from Trump’s assistant Bridges Lamar, an Oxford native, Ole Miss alumna and granddaughter of the town’s first female mayor, Pat Lamar.

The email account is reportedly shared among Trump, Kushner and personal household staff for family scheduling with hundreds of emails from White House email addresses sent to the private family domain since January.

“The emails — which include nonpublic travel documents, internal schedules and some official White House materials —were in many cases sent from Ivanka Trump, her assistant Bridges Lamar and others who work with the couple in the White House.”
