Obama lied.

Again.

In an interview on CBS News, Obama claimed he only learned of Hillary’s private email server in the newspaper:

President Obama, “only learned of the use of Hillary Clinton’s private email address for official State Department business after a New York Times report,”  he told CBS News in an interview.

CBS News Senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama.

“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” the president told Plante.

Mr. Obama’s comments follow a long week of media scrutiny surrounding Hillary Clinton’s private email address and the “home-brewed” server that hosted it.

“The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails, the BlackBerry I carry around, all those records are available and archived,”  Mr. Obama said.  “I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.”

All lies.

The Daily Caller reports that 18 emails between Obama and Hillary are being withheld.

“The State Department is withholding 18 emails between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama,” agency spokesman John Kirby said Friday.

 

The news comes at the same time that the State Department announced that 22 of Clinton’s emails contain “top secret” information.  That’s a far higher number than had previously been disclosed.  The agency’s Freedom of Information Act department is withholding seven full email chains in order to protect the highly-classified information.

In Friday’s press briefing, Kirby was asked by Associated Press reporter Matt Lee whether it is believed that Clinton and Obama emailed only 18 times while she was at the State Department, a span that stretched from January 2009 to February 2013.

“Of the 55,000 pages of traffic that were handed over by former Secretary Clinton to us for us to go through for release through FOIA, we have found these 18, and I do not expect that there will be more,” Kirby said.

This is a pretty brazen lie.

The Obama regime expects us to believe Obama had no idea what email address he was replying to when Hillary was emailing him.

They contend it obviously skipped his attention that there was no “.gov” in the email domain.

But this is standard operating procedure for Obama scandal denial.

Obama claimed he only learned of the IRS targeting Tea Party groups for harassment through news reports.

That was enough to get a compliant press looking for any reason to believe him off the trail on that scandal.

But will it work this time?

There is clear and compelling evidence Obama lied to the American people about now knowing about Hillary’s private email server when the two were exchanged almost 20 emails through it.

Let us know in the comment section what you think will happen now that Obama’s lies about Hillary’s email server were exposed.
