“House Democrats Probe White House Officials’ Email Use,” The Wall Street Journal, March 22, 2019. Did they use personal email accounts for government business?
One of the tricky things about Compliance is if you have a well-publicized case of another executive doing something that looks to be against the rules and he or she is not punished, it’s hard to enforce those restrictions against the next alleged violator.
So, what are the rules here? The ones on the books or the ones in practice? Does anyone in your company use personal email for company business? Is that against the rules? Do you enforce that rule? Or is the practice so widespread your policies/rules are unenforceable? Or is this just the distinction between employees of the White House and employees of the Department of State or the Justice Department?
