Barack Obama Implicated In Hillary Clinton Email Scheme? Judicial Watch Says YES!


Just yesterday, Judicial Watch announced that an unnamed senior FBI official confessed, under oath and in writing, that the FBI found Hillary Clinton email records in the Executive Office of the President during Obama’s time in the White House.

The FBI also disclosed that almost 49,000 of Hillary Clinton’s emails from the now-infamous server were reviewed as a result of obtaining a search warrant for her material that was found on disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Wiener’s laptop.

According to Judicial Watch:

E.W. (Bill) Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, made the disclosure to Judicial Watch as part of court-ordered discovery into the Clinton email issue.

U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Priestap, to be deposed or answer writer questions under oath. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”

Priestap was asked by Judicial Watch to identify representatives of Hillary Clinton, her former staff, and government agencies from which “email repositories were obtained.” Priestap responded with the following non-exhaustive list:

  • Bryan Pagliano
  • Cheryl Mills
  • Executive Office of the President [Emphasis added]
  • Heather Samuelson
  • Jacob Sullivan
  • Justin Cooper
  • United States Department of State
  • United States Secret Service
  • Williams & Connolly LLP

Priestap also testifies that 48,982 emails were reviewed as a result of a warrant for Clinton email account information from the laptop of Anthony Weiner, who had been married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

A complete copy of Priestap’s interrogatory responses is available here. Priestap, is serving as assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division and helped oversee both the Clinton email and the 2016 presidential campaign investigations. Priestap testified in a separate lawsuit that Clinton was the subject of a grand jury investigation related to her BlackBerry email accounts.

“This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama’s White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people.” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “No wonder Hillary Clinton has thus far skated – Barack Obama is implicated in her email scheme.”

This seems to be developing quite quickly.

Assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division Bill Priestap was ordered to answer the questions in writing by District Judge Royce C. Lamberth when it was ruled back in January that Judicial Watch’s discovery and ensuing lawsuit could start with the Clinton email scandal.

Tom Fitton, the President of Judicial Watch, took to Twitter to spread the news, posting many tweets on the matter:
