On Monday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest reversed course, telling reporters during a press brief, that the President did in fact exchange emails with the former Secretary of State.

President Obama claimed during an interview on Saturday if he was aware of Hillary Clinton used a private email account to conduct government business and responded, “I just became aware of it the same time everyone else learned of it, I heard about it on the news. Obama said. “My administration’s policy is to encourage transparency,” the President claimed.

Earnest gave the response to a question asked by ABC reporter Jonathan Karl regarding the President’s remarks. Earnest said “Yes, he (President Obama) was aware of her email address. He traded emails with her, But he was not made aware of her personal email server or that she was using it exclusively for all her business.”

Karl followed up the question, asking how often did Obama and Clinton exchanged emails, Earnest answered, “I wouldn’t describe the number as being “large.”

Many are accusing Hillary Clinton violating State Dept. Policy by her using the private email server instead of a government issued email account., which archives all email correspondence.

After severe criticism, Hillary Clinton requested the State Department emails to be released.

Earnest went on to explain that President Obama was referring to her email server system. Clinton failed to submit the records for transfer to government computers.

The Former Secretary of State called for the release of the 55,000 emails turned over to the State Department for archiving. However, she fails to mention the fact that her team handpicked the messages from the private server regarding official business.

Clinton’s representatives say that around 10 percent of the emails were personal, which is why they won’t be handed over. “I’m glad that Hillary instructed the emails regarding official business be disclosed,” Obama said during the interview Saturday.

Clinton’s biggest issue is that Federal law states that all government agency emails are the property of the federal government, not Mrs. Clinton’s. If sensitive emails were discarded that would be violating a federal statute.

Earnest went on to say that an independent review of Clinton’s private server shouldn’t required. However, he did suggest the White House would not put up opposition if Clinton decided it was necessary.

Clinton has refused to answer questions regarding Email-Gate, although late last night, her team announced that Clinton could respond to questions concerning the matter in 48 hours.
