New evidence to further show that the Obama administration was truly involved in the Hillary Clinton private email server scandal has emerged. Handwritten FBI agent notes released by the bureau late Friday show that the Obama administration's White House counsel was directly involved in deliberations over the Hillary Clinton emails as early as spring 2015.
The new proof is in contrast to the early and stern denials of the Obama White House when it tried to put distance between itself and the former secretary of state's personal email controversy. The records were given to Judicial Watch because of the lawsuit it filed in federal court to have freedom of information access to the pertinent documents of the case.
The newly released notes came from an interview with a state department employee which also show how Patrick Kennedy, the department's third highest-ranking official at that time tried to convince an FBI agent to change the classification of the Clinton emails by asserting that such emails do not contain sensitive information. Kennedy and the State Department denied then the charges, which appeared to be somewhat credible then.
The notes that were just released on Friday also show how agents from the FBI were expecting 14 boxes of Clinton emails from Williams & Connolly, Clinton lawyer's firm, but only received 12 boxes. The two boxes remain "missing" and have never been truly accounted for.
Former President Barack Obama in an interview with CBS News on March 7, 2015, said his now infamous statement that he only learned about Clinton's private server for government business for the media "at the same time everybody else learned it, through news reports." Such denial was of course quickly contradicted with the leaked email published by WikiLeaks of Hillary aide Cheryl Mills which show she told Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta that " We need to clean this up. He has emails from her- they do not say state.gov."
Hillary Clinton's private server while working as secretary of state department where she handled top sensitive and classified information dealing with national security matters affirmed the public's view that she is not trustworthy. That was the main issue in the said controversy that haunted her presidential run, while for her only FBI Director James Comey should be blamed for reopening a probe into her case when fresh evidence came up during the crucial last few weeks of the campaign.
