Hillary Email Scandal Catches Obama in Transparency Untruth

Hillary Clinton has addressed her private email scandal so far only with a lone tweet, although she reportedly plans to publicly address the issue today. But Barack Obama has already taken plenty of flak on the subject. Over the weekend, CBS News asked Obama when he learned of Clinton’s private account. “The same time everybody else learned it – through news reports,” Obama replied. “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.” But that little untruth was undermined by Obama’s spokesman, Josh Earnest, who admitted Monday that Obama emailed Hillary at her private account. Earnest told reporters, “The president, as I think many people expected, did over the course of his first several years in office trade emails with his secretary of state. I would not describe the number of emails as large, but they did have the occasion to email each other.” Unlike Technology subcommittee member Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Obama knows how to use email; his oft-repeated story of incompetence can’t help him in this instance.
