Barack Obama used an alias in email to Hillary Clinton
Yesterday the FBI released more documents related to its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the big new was that the FBI granted Cheryl Mills, a woman who is at the heart of the scandal, immunity in return for her testimony and today we have learned something which is potentially bigger news.
According to this story Barack Obama–who only learned about Hillary Clinton’s email server by watching the news–used an alias in an email communication to the former Secretary of State. Here is more:
President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.
The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.
The 189 pages the bureau released includes interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials; and even Marcel Lazar, better known as the Romanian hacker “Guccifer.”
In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.
“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?'” the report says. “Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.”
I find it odd Huma Abedin wanted a copy of the email after she found out it was from the President but let that go, it is not germane to the topic but something interesting to ponder.
The email was not about yoga pants and wedding dresses if Huma Abedin questioned why the email was not classified but then again none of the emails we have seen to date have been about yoga pants and wedding dresses. We do not know the contents of the email because it has been protected by Presidential Privilege–just like Fast and Furious–but needless to say I find it very peculiar the President would be emailing the Secretary of State on a server he thought was a secured government server about official business and would be using an alias. The more we learn about this scandal the less credible Hillary Clinton’s excuses become–and they were not credible in the first place…
The obvious questions are: why was Barack Obama using an alias in an email to Hillary Clinton which should have been marked classified? Did he only use an alias when emailing Hillary Clinton? And is this standard operating procedure?
At this point I would like to know what James Comey and the FBI are covering up.
