President Obama claimed he knew nothing about Hillary Clinton’s private email server until he saw the story on the news.
A recently released email from John Podesta’s hacked account suggests that Obama was fully aware of Hillary’s behavior.
On March 7th, 2015, President Obama told CBS News’ Bill Plante that he learned about Hillary’s server “the same time everybody else learned it, through news reports.”
Immediately after the interview, Clinton spokesperson Josh Schwerin sent this message to Jennifer Palmieri (Director of Communications for Hillary’s campaign):
Jen you probably have more on this but it looks like POTUS just said he found out HRC was using her personal email when he saw it in the news.
That same day, top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills sent the following message to John Podesta:
We need to clean this up – he [Obama] has emails from her [Hillary] – they do not say state.gov.
Two days after the CBS interview, White House spokesperson Josh Earnest explained that while the President did receive emails from Hillary, he was unaware of the private email server: “The point that the President was making is not that he didn’t know Secretary Clinton’s email address – he did – but he was not aware of the details of how that email address and that server had been set up or how Secretary Clinton and her team were planning to comply with the Federal Records Act.”
Donald Trump was quick to comment, insisting that the email proves Obama knew about Hillary’s non-government server. “So that means Obama is now in the act…he didn’t want to get caught up in the big lie. He is caught up now, folks,” said Trump this week at a campaign event in Florida.
Meanwhile, the liberal news is using Trump as a scapegoat to downplay the story.
New York Times columnist Frank Bruni told CNN that Trump’s very existence is drawing the media away from the WikiLeaks story. This story “would be an enormous issue in these closing weeks of the campaign if it weren’t for Donald Trump,” said Bruni. Hillary Clinton is “catching an enormous break here.”
The WikiLeaks story would be “dominating” the news “if her opponent was not Donald Trump – someone who every day in every way provides juicer fodder, bigger scandals, greater outrages.”
WikiLeaks has released emails from John Podesta’s hacked account daily for more than two weeks. Hillary and her team refuse to confirm or deny the emails’ authenticity, and continue to blame the Russian government for the hack.
To Hell with Obamacare!
