President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.
The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.The 189 pages the bureau released includes interviews with some of Clinton’s closest aides, such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills; senior State Department officials…In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.
“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?'” the report says. “Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.”
Politico’s “and others” suggests that Obama may have used nom de plumes for some other reason. All right…what “others”? What reasons? Politico doesn’t say. Did the conservative sources leave out that detail to make Obama look bad? Did Politico put it in to protect him from public suspicion? We don’t know, because no liberal-leaning, mainstream media source has yet relayed this new finding arising from the latest Friday afternoon document dump.
Surely this is news that the public has the right to know. Why hasn’t it been widely reported on, especially the part where Hillary’s own top aide asked, “How is this not classified?'”
If you are a Hillary Clinton supporter, are you really comfortable with the fact that journalists are hiding and manipulating the news to avoid showing the full dishonesty and corruption of your candidate, as well as the complicity of Barack Obama in allowing this misconduct by his Secretary of State?
If you are comfortable, what’s the hell’s the matter with you?
I’m not comfortable with a lot in this matter. I’m not comfortable that I can trust neither the conservative media to give the facts straight, nor the liberal media not to bury stories that reflect poorly on their political darlings. I’m not comfortable that the President of the United States may have been part of a conspiracy to avoid transparency by his Secretary of State; you ‘ll recall that Josh Earnest demanded that reporters give Obama the credit due him for delivering on his transparency pledge, one of the most gutsy endorsements of Orwellian reality in US history. I’m not comfortable that like my fellow Americans, there is literally nobody I can trust to tell me the truth, and I am especially uncomfortable that so many of my fellow Americans are so hollowed out of courage, integrity, intelligence and principle that they don’t give a damn.
