This Email Prankster Is Fooling White House Officials By Pretending To Be Their Colleagues

By Mustafa Gatollari

One of Donald Trump's biggest criticisms against Hillary Clinton while on the campaign trail was her email "scandal."

Fast forward to his Presidency and not only is his administration allegedly doing the same thing he got on Hillary's case for (hosting emails on a private server) but it turns out that his top level staffers are seemingly really, really bad at distinguishing messages from pranksters and posers from the real thing.

You might remember that Rick Perry was fooled into thinking a Russian comedian was the Ukranian Prime Minister, but he isn't the only member of the Trump team who's been getting mercilessly fooled: Both former communications director Anthony Scaramucci and Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert were allegedly the victims of this anonymous email prankster.
