Clinton Camp Was Worried About Emails Between Hillary and Obama

Fox News’ Ed Henry reported Friday on newly released emails from WikiLeaks that showed President Obama may have known more about Hillary Clinton’s private email server than was initially known by the public.

This is part of the weeklong release of emails that belonged to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta after they were hacked.

“It’s an email that might draw President Obama deeper into this controversy than he has been before,” Henry said. “Remember, the president has previously said that he was unaware that Hillary Clinton had a private server, number one, and that they emailed one another infrequently.”

Henry went on to read an email from Podesta to Cheryl Mills on March 4, 2015: “Think we should hold emails to and from POTUS? That’s the heart of his exec privilege. We could get them to ask for that. They may not care, but it seems like they will.”

Henry went on to say that this was significant partly because Obama has downplayed any emails he had with Clinton and that this email from Podesta to Mills was written the day after Rep. Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) issued a subpoena ordering Clinton to preserve all of her emails, but that Podesta and Mills debated on what do with those emails, even though Gowdy issued a legal order on the matter. Then on March 20, 2015, as Gowdy demanded Clinton to turn over her server, Podesta requested a phone call with White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough.
