As another flood of emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server collection pours out—7,000 pages this time—the White House has announced it will not release any emails between President Obama and the former secretary of state until he leaves office in 2017.
Fox News reported Saturday that an administration official said there was a “small number” of emails between the president and Clinton, which was described as “mostly non-substantive,” because most of their discussions were in person or by phone.
“There is a long history of presidential records being kept confidential while the president is in office,” the senior administration official said in a statement. “With regard to the president’s email, as we have previously acknowledged, the president did on occasion trade emails with Secretary Clinton, and we presume those communications will ultimately be made public, along with the rest of the president’s records, after he leaves office.”
Meanwhile, the State Department continues to release a total of 55,000 emails they’ve obtained from Clinton, that were stored on her private email server. The latest batch contains 200-300 emails with information that is now considered classified, according to a state department spokesman.
One email passed on a report from a “friend” and “Syria expert,” who met with a Syrian diplomat who apparently asked that the U.S. “stop supporting groups such as the Syrian National Council b/c they have very little legitimacy or popularity in Syria,” but recommended “showing outward support for the serious and respected Syrian opposition elements.”
The GOP reacted with apprehension regarding the frontrunner for the Democratic Party nomination for president.
“This court-ordered email release is another reminder of why Hillary Clinton cannot be trusted in the White House,” Republican National Committe Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “The hundreds of additional emails found to contain classified information and ongoing FBI investigation illustrate just how badly Hillary Clinton jeopardized national security and misled the American people.”
As for what transpired by email between Obama and Clinton, the country will have to wait for the next president—as long as it’s not Clinton.
