On March 7th, 2015, Obama told CBS News’ correspondent Bill Plante that he learned about Hillary Clinton’s secret email server that was illegally used to conduct government business during her post as secretary of state “the same time everybody else learned it, through news reports.”
It’s not the first time Obama has claimed to learn about the scandals in his regime through the newspapers. Seven other times, Obama attempted to brush aside scandals by saying that his hands were clean and that he only learned about them in the newspapers. How innocent.
Yet, an email exchange released by WikiLeaks on Tuesday indicates that Obama was lying to the American people (imagine that).
Hillary Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin and former State Department chief of staff Cheryl Mills were scheming in the emails how to clean up the mess created by emails between Obama and Hillary in which she is using her private, non-government secret email account and server.
Mills warned Schwerin that “we need to clean this up. He has emails from her — they do not say state.gov.”
“You probably have more on this, but it looks like POTUS just said he found out HRC was using her personal email when he saw it in the news,” Schwerin wrote, referring to the interview with Bill Plante.

The email included a link to a tweet by Buzzfeed News political director Katherine Miller, where Miller tweeted that she had “some questions” about Obama’s answer to Plante.
