Dude, that was like, eight years ago, or something. Let’s move on!
A top adviser to Hillary Clinton’s campaign-in-waiting accused the George W. Bush administration of using private emails to skirt transparency rules in 2007.
John Podesta, who left the White House in February for an unofficial role with Clinton, criticized Bush administration officials for using Republican National Committee email accounts for official business.
“At the end of the day, it looks like they were trying to avoid the Records Act . . . by operating official business off the official systems,” Podestasaid in an interview with The Wall Street Journal.
The Bush White House admitted that it lost thousands of emails that weren’t backed up. Spokesman Scott Stanzel told reporters in 2007 that the White House had “not done a good job” of complying with transparency laws, according toThe Los Angeles Times.
Clinton’s own use of private emails is under scrutiny after The New York Timesreported on Monday that as secretary of State, she solely used a personal email for all her official business as the nation’s top diplomat.
In case you forgot, Podesta just left the Obama White House to go work with The Pantsuit. He also earned his Soros chops at the far-left Center for American Progress and with the bedwetters at Media Matters. Speaking of which, enjoy this one from the wayback machine.
And the plot is thickening, even more than Hillary’s cankles.
