Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, wrote to Google on Friday to reiterate his concerns that White House Deputy Chief Technology Officer Andrew McLaughlin had inappropriate contact with the company, where he was formerly an employee.

“In April it was revealed that … McLaughlin used his personal email account to engage in official business, including discussions on policy matters under his review with [Google],” Issa wrote.

The White House reprimanded McLaughlin in May for what it deemed were “incidental” violations of the administration’s ethics code. The White House said McLaughlin’s e-mails with Google officials had no effect on policy decisions.

Issa noted that messages sent on private e-mail accounts or through Facebook and Twitter are not captured and archived by the White House under the Presidential Records Act. He said he is concerned about reports that White House staffers may be contacting lobbyists through private accounts.
