It's getting better all the time.
This is where Snowden comes in.
EARNEST: The president did e-mail with Secretary Clinton. I assume that he recognized the e-mail address that he was e-mailing back to.
EARNEST: I would not describe the number of e-mails as large, but they did have the occasion to e-mail one another. And the point that the president was making is not that he didn't know Secretary Clinton's e-mail address; he did. But he was not aware of the details of how that e-mail address and that server had been set up
. “The president, as I think many people expected, did over the course of his first several years in office trade emails with his secretary of state,” Earnest said. “I would not describe the number of emails as large, but they did have the occasion to email each other.”
Earnest’s admission comes after Obama said on CBS on Saturday that he learned about Clinton’s use of a private email and server “the same time everybody else learned it, through news reports.” According to Earnest, this comment should not be assumed to mean that Obama and Clinton never emailed back and forth.
