Trump Calls For Investigation Into Obama Over Clinton Email Server
Oct 30 2016 by Larry Hoffman
Did President Obama mislead the public about what he knew about Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server?
The conversation came one day after The New York Times first published evidence of the former secretary of state's controversial email setup, which put her work-related correspondence outside the reach of officials who responded to Freedom of Information Act requests.
The hacked emails reveal Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin contacting communications director Jennifer Palmieri on March 7, 2015.
Clinton and her allies will want to move on from these damning election-year revelations when she gets into office.
In a December 21, 2015 email, Budowsky slates Clinton's position on fighting ISIS before advising Podesta to draw Putin into her attacks on U.S. presidential election rival Trump.
WikiLeaks Hillary Clinton's campaign team was advised to link Russian President Vladimir Putin with Donald Trump in an apparent bid to distract voters from Clinton's strategy on Islamic State. Furthermore, the president or his staff went to great lengths to make sure Barack Obama's name did not appear in any of those emails in which he corresponded with Clinton on her unsecured email server.
"Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president's use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email", the Federal Bureau of Investigation report said.
"And now I understand that despite his hatred of the Clintons - 'cause I know one thing, Bill hates him! - but despite his hatred, now I understand why he pushed her", Trump said. But the president was not aware of the fact that this was a personal email server and that this was the email address that she was using exclusively for all her business.

While there are other states he must also win, any electoral map that ends with President Trump starts with Florida colored red. Law was careful to temper his optimism, though he did say he thinks Republicans "will hold the majority".
Earlier in the email chain, a note from Clinton aide Josh Schwerin informed other advisers on the chain that Obama had just learned about Clinton's email controversy.
"The point that the president was making is not that he didn't know Secretary Clinton's email address, he did", Earnest said.
'Why didn't they get this stuff out like 18 months ago?
Though personal email accounts can be hosted by virtually every major email provider-services such as Gmail and Yahoo-Obama was asked specifically about Clinton's use of an email system "outside the USA government", which would include not just a private email server but an account hosted by anyone other than the State Department.
But did Obama only communicate with Clinton 18 times via email?
Lessig, an advocate of campaign finance reform who launched a modest protest campaign for president, wrote on his blog that he got off an airliner after a flight to visit his father to find his email inbox flooded with messages about the hacked exchange.
Three days later, Clinton had still not apologized, even as the issue dominated campaign news coverage.
