New Report: White House Coordinated With Clinton Campaign About Emails In Early 2015

(Before It's News)

On March 7 of 2015, the NY Times reported Barack Obama said he didn’t know Hillary Clinton was using a private email address during her tenure as Secretary of State. It was learned last week, that was a lie. President Obama used a pseudonym to email Hillary Clinton – at her private email address, while she was Secretary of State.

The Wall Street Journal is now reporting the Obama White House was coordinating with Hillary’s fledgling campaign in order to do damage control over the email scandal:

Newly disclosed emails show top Obama administration officials were in close contact with Hillary Clinton’s nascent presidential campaign in early 2015 about the potential fallout from revelations that the former secretary of state used a private email server.

Their discussion included a request from the White House communications director to her counterpart at the State Department to see if it was possible to arrange for Secretary of State John Kerry to avoid questions during media appearances about Mrs. Clinton’s email arrangement.

In another instance, a top State Department official assured an attorney for Mrs. Clinton that, contrary to media reports, a department official hadn’t told Congress that Mrs. Clinton erred in using a private email account.

For people that did “nothing wrong” and supposedly did “everything above board” they sure went out of their way to make sure nobody was asked about it.

Granted, there was nothing illegal about what they were doing:

Meredith McGehee, chief of policy, programs, and strategy at the nonpartisan advocacy group Issue One and an expert on ethics and campaign finance, said the email exchange would probably raise no legal concerns because federal law permits members of the White House staff to engage in some political activity.

The real issue here is the duplicity both from the White House and Hillary Clinton as well as her campaign. There may not have been legal concerns but there was certainly political concerns. In addition, it belies the claims by both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton over their supposed “transparency.”

Actual transparency wouldn’t necessitate the constant filing of FOIA requests.
