The State Department discovered emails between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama, and the White House is working to keep them under wraps:
The White House will try to block the release of a handful of emails between President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, citing longstanding precedent invoked by presidents of both parties to keep presidential communications confidential, officials said Friday.
The State Department discovered the emails between Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton as part of its effort to release the former secretary’s emails, several thousand more of which were made public on Friday.
All together now:
"Most transparent administration in history"

But wait, how did President Obama email Hillary Clinton if he didn’t know she used a private email server and non-government email address (which Obama denied knowing about when Hillary was secretary of state)?
WH may withhold Obama emails w/ Hillary, but Obama was lying when he said he didn't know she used non-gov email.https://t.co/uF6zTpRGP6

Senior Official: White House Will Not Release Emails Between Obama & Hillary-so they did know Hillary's email address was on a secret server

@TuckerCarlson Let me get this straight Obama said he didn't know Hillary had a private email then we find out they emailed back in 2012?

Obama knew Hillary had a private email if they were emailing back & forth. No wonder he won't release the emails. So dishonest.

The White House later “clarified” Obama’s 60 Minutes answer:
@20committee "Mr. Earnest later clarified that the president was aware that she sometimes used a private email…" i.e. the President lied.

Can a re-clarification of that clarification be far behind?

Funny how that works!
