The White House worked AND the State Department worked together to cover up Hillary Clinton's email scandal! That's the bombshell allegation of a new report out of DC.
New emails obtained by Republican National Committee from a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) lawsuit reveal the Obama administration communicated directly with the State Department in an attempt to minimize the damage caused from Clinton's email scandal.
One striking example of the exchange is when the two departments worked together to protect Sec. of State John Kerry from having to answer any questions regarding the scandal. "Think we can get this done so Kerry is not asked about email,", the White House communications director at the time, Jennifer Palmieri, wrote to a State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki in March 2015.
"Transcripts from the March 15, 2015 appearance show Kerry was not asked about the emails during his appearance," The Washington Examiner reported.
Another example of the secret collusion was on March 13, 2015, an email from Psaki to Palmieri said, "Good to go on killing CBS idea." In the same email she wrote, "and we are going to hold on any other TV options just given the swirl of crap out there," The Wall Street Journal reported.
In another email, Palmieri wrote to Psaki: "Think we can get this done so he is not asked about email."
Psaki's response: "Agree completely and working to crush on my end."
Palmieri was working at the White House during the email exchanges, but as The Daily Caller reported, "she had already announced that she would be taking a position on the Clinton campaign. Psaki took over Palmieri's position when the latter left."
A CBS News spokesperson insisted there was never a deal struck to avoid asking questions about the email scandal.
"No subject was off-limits when this interview was arranged, as is the CBS News standard," Caitlin Conant said, according to The Wall Street Journal. "CBS News' State Department correspondent was in Egypt with Secretary John Kerry in the home stretch of the Iran nuclear deal negotiations and discussed policy issues of the day with him on this official trip."
