Scandal-free president had name scrubbed from James Comey’s report on Hillary

Thanks for a Friday night news dump last September, we knew that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was emailing back-and-forth with President Obama using her private email address routed through her homebrew server. Don’t worry about national security, though: Obama used a pseudonym that not even Huma Abedin knew, so it was all very secure.

That fact came up Thursday with the release of the OIG report, but with a new twist: according to the report, Clinton “used her private email extensively while outside the United States, including from the territory of sophisticated adversaries,” but the fact that she was corresponding with the president was scrubbed from James Comey’s exoneration. Instead, references to Obama were changed to “another senior government official” … and then even that bit was dropped from the final draft.

1. Hillary was unbelievably reckless.

2. Scrubbing the reference to Obama was an enormously consequential change. pic.twitter.com/n56lQhgaVQ

It would’ve been a shame to have dragged Barack Obama’s name into all of this.

Obama knew about Hillary’s secret e-mail scheme, because she e-mailed him using her private address “while in the territory of a foreign adversary.” That finding was removed from Comey’s statement exonerating Clinton. pic.twitter.com/vlrYvWqt9f

The IG found that Obama was “one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail[.]com account.” Now we know why Clinton was never going to be charged with anything related to her secret e-mail scheme. https://t.co/4ERsrp4iga pic.twitter.com/O2EtX8KDis

Obama repeatedly said he first learned about its existence from the news. https://t.co/I6SlDEFrd0 https://t.co/JpoPP4uI3C

Been pretty obvious why the FBI beat around the bush with Hillary: Obama White House was implicated. https://t.co/UxmlVf1v4W

Isn’t the fact that Obama knew and may have had his own private address within that server the motivation behind protecting her and thus him from investigation? https://t.co/sRFkhFQids

Hillary was the opposite of reckless. This is the coverup. She knew exactly what she was doing by setting up the server and bleach-bitting it. She was hiding things she knew were there. https://t.co/dWHLroMVBY

A lot of the focus will obviously be Clinton/Trump but the Clinton/Obama stuff in the IG report is absolutely bananas. Always good to have friends in high places. https://t.co/jBg1KTjllo

Please, someone define: “Smidgen” https://t.co/YfbbTPOrmi

As in, “a smidgen of corruption?”

They truly didn’t expect to lose, and went on a wild crime spree thinking it would all be covered up later.

This is just one small one among dozens. https://t.co/2dRJOsAXVT

So, Hillary Clinton communicating with Obama directly with the compromised private email server, WHILE INSIDE A HOSTILE NATION, and Comey-Rybicki scrubbed from the report that Obama was directly-involved.

That’s integrity from your FBI!#utpol https://t.co/o1K6j6A1eb
