Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino blasted former President Obama for lies about his knowledge of Hillary Cinton’s private email.
One of the bombshells in the newly released Department of Justice inspector general report revealed that Obama lied in 2015 when he said he didn’t know his secretary of state was illegally using a private email server to conduct government business.
“Yesterday’s report from the IG also reveals President Obama was one of 13 people who had direct contact with Hillary Clinton on her private email address,” Fox News’ Tucker Carlson said Friday. “Back in 2015, the then-president claimed he only learned of the private address when it became known to the public. That apparently was a lie.”
“The most damning revelation, I think you just nailed it, is that Barack Obama receiving emails from Hillary Clinton’s personal, not state.gov account, which she didn’t have,” Bongino said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Friday.
The White House Communications Agency had to “whitelist” Clinton’s email address, Bongino said, as it is the office responsible for the president’s communications.
“In other words, somebody had to tell WHCA ‘hey, put that personal email address in Barack Obama’s phone,'” Bongino continued. “Who told them?”
The IG found that Obama was “one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail[.]com account.” Now we know why Clinton was never going to be charged with anything related to her secret e-mail scheme. https://t.co/4ERsrp4iga pic.twitter.com/O2EtX8KDis

“Are you still going to stick to this story, Barack Obama, you had no idea Hillary had a personal email account?” Bongino said. “Plausible deniability here is gone and out the window.”
Carlson interjected to clarify Bongino’s suggestion.
“By definition, because of the way it was set up, Obama and the people around him had to have known that this was an email system outside of the government chain?” he asked.
“There is no way around it. You think Barack Obama on his personal Blackberry was getting spam emails about a flower sale for Mother’s Day?” Bongino replied.
“Those emails had to be white listed before they even hit the Blackberry, meaning somebody gave WHCA that email address and said – ‘hey, this Hillary Clinton personal one, don’t worry, this one’s A-okay.’ Who’s the person who did that?” Bongino asked.
“You think Obama didn’t know? I mean, the Pravda media will cover for him, I’m sure,” Bongino concluded. “It’s ridiculous. The story’s absurd. Obama couldn’t have been telling the truth.”
