Despite millions of employees who work for the federal government, including about 2,000 who work at the White House, Barack Obama seems to find out scandals in his administration by watching the news–assuming he’s changed the channel from ESPN.
The president’s claim that he learned about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server from media reports doesn’t seem to be holding up to scrutiny, however, at least as far as another Podesta email suggests. John Podesta is Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair.
Despite the media’s attempt to ignore these ongoing revelations, many of which are very damaging to Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton such as her support for open borders and open trade articulated during a speech to a foreign ban, the WikiLeaks Podesta email trove does seem to be getting through the noise to some degree.
From the New York Times:
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 say state.gov,’ Cheryl D. Mills, a top aide, wrote to John D. Podesta, another senior adviser, on March 7, 2015.
Cheryl Mills is the same Clinton confidant whom the Justice Department and the FBI let off the hook in the probe.
“Subsequent interviews by the FBI in the course of its probe into Clinton’s email practices revealed that Obama had emailed Clinton at her personal address using a pseudonym,” the Washington Free Beacon noted.
On Tuesday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump called for an investigation of the president in connection with the Hillary Clinton private email server because Obama “is now into the act.”
Gateway Pundit is maintaining an ongoing archive of all the Podesta emails published by WikiLeaks.
