White House press secretary Josh Earnest admitted President Obama “exchanged e-mails with Hillary Clinton on her personal address while she was secretary of state, but he didn’t know any details about how it had been set up.” Bloomberg,
The president said Saturday in an interview with CBS News that he first heard about Clinton using an e-mail system outside of the government for official business “the same time everybody else learned it through news reports.”
Earnest said that while Obama likely recognized the e-mail address that he was responding to was not a government account, the president was referring to the fact that he didn’t know Clinton was using a personal e-mail server that was kept at her house or that she was using that exclusively for government business.
The Republican National Committee, in an e-mail, called Obama’s remarks in the CBS interview “misleading at best.”
