‘Hold emails to and from POTUS?’ New leak appears to connect Obama to Hillary’s email scandal

Another President Barack Obama fabrication was uncovered in the latest batch of hacked Hillary Clinton emails published by WikiLeaks. The question is, will it be worthy of another PolitiFact “Lie of the Year” award?

Since it was disclosed that Clinton used a private server kept in her Chappaqua, New York home to send and receive official State Department emails, Obama has maintained that the first he’d known of it was when the public-at-large did — when it was reported on the evening news.

However, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta wrote to longtime Clinton aide and counsel Cheryl Mills on March 4, 2015, asking, “Think we should hold emails to and from pouts [President of the United States]? That’s the heart of his exec privilege. We could get them to ask for that. They may not care, but I(t) seems like they will.”


Significantly, the day before the email was sent, Rep. Trey Gowdy, as chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, ordered Clinton to preserve all her email records.

On March 20, the South Carolina Republican upped the ante and demanded that the private server be turned over to the committee.

Fox News reported that they obtained a second email pertaining to the first, that was sent two days after Gowdy asked for the server. That email discussed a “closed door” meeting between Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The timeline of events makes Obama’s claims that he had basically been a distant observer in regard to the email scandal seem unlikely.

Obama claimed he and Clinton rarely communicated by email, yet the State Department announced Friday that it will not turn over any emails between the two offices. The most transparent administration in recent history is citing executive privilege.
