Obama on Hillary's Private Email Server: Didn't Pose a National Security Problem

Reporting that "The State Department has concluded there was 'top secret' material in Hillary Clinton's email correspondence from the time she was secretary of state," Rosalind S. Helderman and Carol Morello go on to say in a Washington Post article entitled "The State Department: Hillary Clinton’s email correspondence contained ‘top secret’ material":

"Kirby also said for the first time that some emails between Clinton and President Obama have been located and will also be withheld from public release. He said there were 18 emails between the two, comprising eight email chains. None will be released publicly."

Query: To which address did Obama send emails to Hillary?

Now consider the following interchange between President Obama and Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes on October 11, 2015:

"Steve Kroft: Did you know about Hillary Clinton's use of private email server--

President Barack Obama: No.

Steve Kroft: --while she was Secretary of State?

President Barack Obama: No.

Steve Kroft: Do you think it posed a national security problem?

President Barack Obama: I don't think it posed a national security problem."

Hillary must withdraw from the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. It only remains to be seen whether she can do this in a dignified manner.

On the other hand, President Obama's problems involving Hillary's home server have just begun.

  1. Clinton is 'Too Big to Jail'. Unfortunately, it's still the case that different rules apply to those in Power.
    Even Trump knows that. He recently had the audacity to go as far as saying "I could stand on 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters". As much as his statement sounded more like he was insulting the intelligence of his voters, he was merely describing how (the lack of) justice is applied at the upper echelons of power.

    Jeff, I'll bet you a Falafel that Ehud Olmert doesn't go to prison on February 15.
