The White House will not say if Barack Obama used private email accounts

March 11, 2015

A White House spokesman, Eric Schultz, was asked if Barack Obama has used private email accounts while President of the United States and he refused to give a clear answer. Here is more:

Despite the Obama administration’s best efforts to distance itself from the controversy over Hillary Rodham Clinton’s e-mail practices at the State Department, e-mail-gate may be spilling over into another important office: the White House.

Questions are now coming about President Obama’s e-mail practices, and whether he uses a private e-mail account, as did Mrs. Clinton, who held a press conference Tuesday denying claims she did anything improper in using her own private e-mail server and address for government business.

The White House won’t say whether the president, who famously won a battle to keep his Blackberry while in office, uses a private e-mail address, citing security concerns.

“We have made clear that part of the security precautions we take around that e-mail account is not talking about it much publicly,”

 Eric Schultz’s non-answer tells me everything I need to know–most likely Barack Obama has used private email accounts while President because if he did not why wouldn’t they come right out and clear the President’s name?

  But even if this is the case we have nothing to worry about because Eric Schultz says so:

“The President’s expectation when sending or receiving an e-mail from any Cabinet Secretary is that’s going to be preserved, maintained, and archived in accordance with the Federal Records Act,” Mr. Schultz said.

  Whew! I feel much better knowing this… they would never lie to us, right?
