Obama administration complicit in Clinton email FOIA coverup

Judicial WatchJudicial Watch announced today that it obtained 44 pages of records from the State Department through court-ordered discovery revealing that the Obama White House was tracking a December 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking records concerning then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecure, non-government email system. Months after the Obama White House involvement, the State Department responded to the requestor, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), falsely stating that no such records existed.

We've known for some time that Obama knew personally about Clinton's private email server; we know because they sent emails back and forth. Which means Obama's claims to have found out about it from the news are a transparent lie. But now, we have proof that the Obama White House knew about the FOIA requests for Clinton's emails and was watching those requests closely. That means any violations in the State Dept response to those FOIA requests implicate the White House.

That Obama is a liar is not news. That he may have participated in or even orchestrated the coverup puts members of his administration in legal jeopardy. Probably not at real risk of conviction, but it's definitely going to put some heat on any officials who put anything in writing about the coverup.
