A new FBI email dump shows that Obama emailed Hillary to her private email address on her private server and used a pseudonym to cover his tracks, despite the fact that he claimed to CBS last year that he didn’t even know the private address/server existed until “The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.” AND it was impossible for the WH to not know about the server, BECAUSE THEY HAD TO APPROVE IT FOR CLEARANCE TO SEND EMAILS FROM IT TO THE WHITE HOUSE. The pseudonym also indicates Obama knew the server was not secure, and might be hacked. He’s been caught red-handed lying.
THE REVEAL, As Excerpted From Politico: President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.
The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.
The 189 pages the bureau released includes interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials; and even Marcel Lazar, better known as the Romanian hacker “Guccifer.”
In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.
“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?’” the report says. “Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.” Keep reading
The Original “I Know Nothing” Claim To CBS News, March 7, 2015: President Obama only learned of Hillary Clinton’s private email address use for official State Department business after a New York Times report, he told CBS News in an interview.
CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama.
“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” the president told Plante.
Mr. Obama’s comments follow a long week of media scrutiny surrounding Hillary Clinton’s private email address and the “home-brewed” server that hosted it.
“The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails, the BlackBerry I carry around, all those records are available and archived,” Mr. Obama said. “I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.”
Despite widespread criticism from Republicans who believe Clinton acted inappropriately, the president continued to defend his former Cabinet member’s record.
“Let me just say that Hillary Clinton is and has been an outstanding public servant. She was a great secretary of state for me,” Mr. Obama said.
Following the New York Times report Monday, the House Select Committee in charge of investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks issued a subpoena of Clinton’s private emails. Clinton herself took to Twitter late Wednesday in her first public statement regarding the clintonemail.com server controversy.
And the uproar in the media begins:
Excerpted From The Daily Mail: President Obama used a code name to communicate with Hillary Clinton on her controversial email server in 2012 – directly contradicting his claim he first knew of its existence in 2014.
According to FBI investigators, Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin understood the significance of this immediately when told during questioning and exclaimed, ‘How is that not classified?’.
Indeed, documents released by the FBI on Friday reveal that when Abedin learned her boss had allegedly exchanged messages with the president on an un-secure channel, using a pseudonym to protect his identity, she demanded her own copies.
This was presumably to cover her own back in case top secret information had been discussed, which would potentially be criminal.
‘This exchange strongly suggests Clinton and the president knowingly discussed classified material in an unclassified setting and hence broke the law,’ Raj Shah, the research director at the Republican National Committee, told the New York Post. Keep reading
Excerpted From Town Hall: Katie wrote in February that the story at the time was Obama did correspond with Clinton, but was unaware that her email server was private. Now, we know that the Obama White House knew full well about the server’s existence due to the change in her primary email.
The White House was apparently aware that Hillary Clinton was using a private email account because her staff said so. When Clinton changed her “primary email address,” the White House was informed so that Clinton could still send emails directly to President Obama, Clinton aide Huma Abedin told the FBI during its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server. Obama could only receive emails from designated accounts, and Clinton’s was one of them, Abedin said. Accounts that weren’t authorized would be rejected by the White House server.
Okay—so many thought this was true from the get-go probably, but now we have documented evidence that the president might have known about this a lot sooner than when he spoke about this matter with CBS News, even going so far as to deploy some secrecy of his own by using a fake name over an unsecure server. At what point did the president know about the private server? Why did he use a fake name, did he know the server was unsecure? Did the email from June of 2012 deal with the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare? There are a lot of questions with these latest documents, which will be answered in due time, but not immediately since these notes were released to the public at a rather odd time: when all of the press left for the weekend.
Excerpted from The Daily Caller: The revelation raises questions about Obama’s claim that he knew nothing about Clinton’s private email server. When news of the server started to emerge in 2015, Obama said he learned about it by watching the news just like everybody else did. Obama has never denied knowing Clinton’s email address, though since it used the domain “clintonemail.com,” that would be a giveaway to an observant person that Hillary was using a non-government email.
