President Barack Obama was caught in another lie, this one involving his former secretary of state’s email scandals.
The New York Times reported Saturday that the president had emailed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton at least 18 times to her private, non-secure server while she serves as secretary of state:
The State Department on Friday said for the first time that “top secret” material had been sent through Hillary Clinton’s private computer server, and that it would not make public 22 of her emails because they contained highly classified information.
The department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama would also be withheld, citing the longstanding practice of preserving presidential communications for future release. The department’s spokesman, John Kirby, said that exchanges did not involve classified information.
However, in May of last year, Obama told CBS News that he’d first learned of Clinton’s use of a private server “the same time everybody else learned it through news reports.”
