The White House declares Obama did not know and only found out through the press. Play it again, Sam. Doesn’t say much for his administration, does it?
That’s only half of the problem, if we take Obama at his word. That Hillary did not disclose or notify them is a sub-problem. Why not? And he did not find out. Why not?
So Hillary supposedly did not inform the Obama administration that she was exclusively using private email and routed it to her home.(wherever) Wouldn’t security and national security demand that she tell them, or Obama?
I actually speculate that there was some sort of conversation. This is only speculation, and only one possibility. It could have went something like Hillary letting him know basically what she was doing, ‘but just for security reasons'(wink). He might have said if there are ever questions or problems, I have deniability. Even if there was no conversation it amounts to the same thing, “I didn’t know”.
What if every cabinet Secretary did that? This was not the occasional overlapping of private email accounts. When they point to Jeb or Christie, those are states and not the federal government or a department.
The other problem is that State Department certainly knew it. But no one informed the administration of the situation?
As with most Clinton problems, people want to close the barn door after Clintons bolted through it. She has her way and benefits, then takes a stand in favor of closing the door.
Hilary, you’ve got problems!
