If, after reading that last story I posted, you were thinking to yourself, "but Emily, how is it possible that the President had no idea that Hillary Clinton was using a private email address when the President and the Secretary of State are typically in close communication?" you were not alone. It seems that the President's own staff is also confused.
This afternoon, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest noted that, yes, the President did exchange emails with then-Secretary Clinton using her private email address, and yes, it appears that those emails went through Clinton's private server. Which, yes, means that America's top-level foreign policy discussions were probably open to any hacker who cared to take initiative.
President Barack Obama communicated via email with Hillary Clinton while she used her personal email, according to the White House.
In a press briefing on Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that Obama did correspond with his secretary of state via her private email address.
