The bad news and lies are piling up in Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.

This time Barack Obama is doing the lying, and the latest fib had all of Washington talking.

In a Fox News interview, Obama admitted Hillary was “careless” with her email handling, but mystified observers when he said she did not put our national security at risk.

The New York Post reports:

President Obama said Hillary Clinton showed “carelessness” in managing her emails as State Department boss, but said he believes she never put Americans in harms way.

“There’s carelessness in terms of managing emails, that she has owned, and she recognizes,” Obama told “Fox News Sunday,” his first sit down with the network since 2008.

“I continue to believe that she has not jeopardized America’s national security,” he said.

How can Obama know for certain?

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who served under Bush and Obama, said he believes China and Russia have already read Hillary’s emails.

But Obama’s verbal dance didn’t end there.

He even engaged in the Clintonesque-like speech, “it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is”.

When pressed on the 22 top secret emails sent through Clinton’s private email server, Obama sputtered.

The New York Post also reports:

Obama hedged on that revelation, saying there’s top secret information — and then there’s really top secret material.

“What I also know, because I handle a lot of classified information, is that there are — there’s classified, and then there’s classified,” Obama said.

“There’s stuff that is really top-secret, top-secret, and there’s stuff that is being presented to the president or the secretary of state, that you might not want on the transom, or going out over the wire, but is basically stuff that you could get in open-source.”

But the lying didn’t stop with Obama, it extended to his entire regime.

Quizzed at a press briefing by Fox News reporter Kevin Corke, Whitehouse Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted the President was aware of Hillary’s private email server.

Mediaite reports:

“While the president was certainly aware of her email address, he was not aware of the system put in place to support it,” Earnest said.

Earnest added that, as far as he was aware, nobody at the White House was aware of Clinton’s private email server — what Earnest described as “the arrangement she had in place.”

All emails on government matters, even those that out of necessity or unusual circumstances were sent or received using personal addresses, would be forwarded or copied to their government email address as a matter of course, he said.

He finally conceded that, yes, the president would do all of his own email communication over government email.”

How could Barack Obama be aware of Hillary’s private email address yet not aware of the server arrangements?

Earnest acknowledged that Obama only uses his government email address – but Hillary’s emails were not delivered to Obama’s inbox from her .gov address.
