Obama White House Knew About Clinton Emails Years Earlier Than Previously Admitted
WASHINGTON—Top officials working in the White House under former President Barack Obama knew Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was using a private email system for official government business three years before it became public, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch.
“WH [White House] called—have we received a FOIA request from CREW on the topic of personal use of email by senior officials?
“Apparently other agencies have. If we have it, can you give me the details so I can call the WH back? I think they’d like it on quick turnaround. Thanks! Sheryl,” read a Dec. 20, 2012 email from Sheryl L. Walter, then-director of the Department of State’s Office of Information Programs and Services. Her email was addressed to several of her subordinates.
