A new hacked email released by Wikileaks this morning shows that President Obama may have lied about when he learned of Hillary Clinton’s private email address.
In an email with the subject, ”POTUS on HRC emails” Josh Schwerin, now Clinton’s National Spokesman, links to a tweet from a reporter named Katherine Miller:

Schwerin then writes, “Jen you probably have more on this but it looks like POTUS just said he found out HRC was using her personal email when he saw it in the news.”
The email is then forwarded, and top Clinton aide and former chief of staff to Clinton as Secretary of State Cheryl Mills sends it to John Podesta, writing,“we need to clean this up – he has emails from her – they do not say state.gov”
This email from Mills seems to indicate that Obama had emails from Clinton’s private address, and thus may have known that she had a private email server, which would be in direct contradiction to what he has previously said.
In the interview referenced in the tweet from Miller, Obama told CBS News’ Bill Plante, that he did not know about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, non-“state.gov” email address, and that he learned about it from the news like everybody else. These leaked emails call into question Obama’s account in that interview.
The White House has admitted before that Obama communicated with Clinton’s private email address, but downplayed his knowledge of the details of Clinton’s private server. It was also revealed last month that Obama used a pseudonym while emailing Clinton.
