Wikileaks: Cheryl Mills knew Barack Obama’s email scandal denial was a lie
When the news first broke that Hillary Clinton was using a personal email server instead of a government issued email address Barack Obama told the American people that he only found out about this scandal when he saw it on the news. Unless the President did not contact the former Secretary of State by email even once during her tenure this excuse was laughable on its face, and now we know one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides, Cheryl Mills, knew this could be a potential problem.
Here is more:
Upon being told that president Obama had publicly claimed he did not know about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, longtime Clinton aide and counsel Cheryl Mills told Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta “we need to clean this up.”
The email chain dated March 7, 2015 was started by Josh Schwerin, currently a National Spokesman for the Hillary Clinton campaign after he saw a Tweet from a reporter:

That caused Schwerin to email a group of people including White House Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri and Hillary Clinton’s traveling press secretary Nick Merrill. Schwerin included the tweet and wrote:
Jen 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.
Nick Merrill forwarded that email to top Clinton aide Cheryl Mills, who then forwarded it to Podesta with a clear admission that she was aware President Obama had exchanged emails with Clinton on her private server.

we need to clean this up – he has emails from her – they do not say state.gov
Here is what Judicial Watch had to say about this:
This new information further highlights why Clinton email scandal has always been an Obama scandal that goes far beyond the Secretary of State’s office and reaches directly into the White House.
The American people should also be deeply concerned the Obama administration’s response to the President being caught in an apparent lie. Almost immediately after this email shows that Cheryl Mills realized that President Obama’s statements “needed cleaning up,” the White House response was to issue new regulations that walled off any ability to further investigate the President’s statements.
As you can see in the statement above Barack Obama did in fact take steps to “clean this up” by issuing new regulations to block off any investigation into his statements on the scandal and this tells me Barack Obama knew all along.
Barack Obama is now entwined in both the initial scandal and the ensuing cover-up.
