President Barack Obama Knew About Hillary Clinton’s Illegal, Private Email Server

obama hillary email

The White House knew all along that President Barack Obama knew former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email address, and used it frequently… Even though it was unsecured.

The bombshell report comes from emails released by WikiLeaks, and directly contradicts Obama’s claim in March of 2015 that he only knew about the server through “news reports.”

This means that Obama lied to the American people about his secret communications with Clinton:

WikiLeaks just exposed Obama in a massive way:

“They know POTUS and HRC emailed,” Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri wrote to aides in March 2015 — about a month before Clinton announced she was running for president in 2016.

“Josh has been asked about that,” Palmieri wrote, referring to White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.

“Standard practice is not to confirm anything about his email, so his answer to press was that he would not comment/confirm,” she wrote. “I recollect that Josh was also asked if POTUS ever noticed her personal email account and he said something like POTUS likely had better things to do than focus on his Cabinet’s email addresses.”

Palmieri was responding to Clinton aide Philippe Reines, who suggested they warn the White House that Obama’s response to CBS would eventually be debunked.

“One of us should connect with the WH just so they know that the email will show his statement to not make sense,” Reines wrote. “I’m happy to do so to Josh Earnest since Jen is in a weird position, unless Cheryl or John you want to (or already have) with someone else. But it’s not unreasonable to assume that Josh is going to get asked how this was possible, and he should have the factset.”

“Especially if it’s some weird technical thing with the President’s email setup that he doesn’t see addresses,” he wrote.
