‘We Need to Clean This Up’: Clinton Aide’s Newly Public Email Shows Concern

In a March 2015 interview, President Obama said that he had learned about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state “the same time everybody else learned it, through news reports.”

But that assertion concerned aides of Mrs. Clinton, who knew that the president himself had received emails from the private address, according to a hacked email made public on Tuesday by WikiLeaks.

“We need to clean this up — he has emails from her — they do not,” Cheryl D. Mills, a top aide, wrote to John D. Podesta, another senior adviser, on March 7, 2015.

Two days later, Mr. Obama’s spokesman, Josh Earnest, tried to clarify the president’s remarks, saying that he had, in fact, exchanged emails with Mrs. Clinton through her private account. But Mr. Earnest suggested that the president had no idea the emails could be a problem because he had relied on Mrs. Clinton to make sure that using a private account did not break any laws.

“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 server had been set up, or how Secretary Clinton and her team were planning to comply with the Federal Records Act,” Mr. Earnest said on March 9.

Earnest is absolutely LYING.

EVERY e-mail address that sends the president an email --- every one -- is vetted by the Secret Service and the FBI to make sure it is someone who is real and has a need to contact the president.


No one told the PRESIDENT that his Secretary of State had a PRIVATE email system???? And he SENT her emails, too, to an address that DID NOT end in "" THAT didn't raise his eyebrows a bit????
Is EVERYONE around him stupid or just a lying criminal??

keep cheering.
