Barack Obama has been caught in a lie…a major lie.
He said he had no idea that Hillary Clinton was using a private email server, and apparently he hoped that nobody ever found out otherwise. However, a late Friday document dump from the FBI said otherwise after it revealed that not only did he know about her email server, he sent and received messages from her on it.
Check it out, via Politico:
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.”
The State Department has refused to make public that and other emails Clinton exchanged with Obama. Lawyers have cited the “presidential communications privilege,” a variation of executive privilege, in order to withhold the messages under the Freedom of Information Act.
The report doesn’t provide more details on the contents of that particular email exchange, but says it took place on June 28, 2012, and had the subject line: “Re: Congratulations.” It may refer to the Supreme Court’s ruling that day upholding a key portion of the Obamacare law.
Isn’t that something? It’s almost as if the people running our nation couldn’t care less about our national security.
But surely we wouldn’t ever allow such people to run the nation. Would we?
