Andy McCarthy: "Obama, Clinton and Biden ALL used secret, fake-name email accounts to hide their actions"
From McCarthy's piece at the New York Post:
When high officials were involved in a dodgy activity they wanted to shield from public disclosure laws, they frequently used pseudonymous email accounts. . . .
[Obama] knew that she was using a non-government communications channel because, numerous times, she used it to correspond with him.
You were never supposed to know that because they concealed it on both ends.
Clinton used not only a non-government address but a non-secure, private domain that the FBI concluded could easily have been — and probably was — penetrated by hostile foreign intelligence services.
For his part, Obama used a pseudonymous email address.
Obviously, Obama and Clinton were not talking about the weather.
They were talking about sensitive matters that are presumptively classified.
Indeed, Clinton was on an official trip to Russia (which boasts one of the world’s most capable spying apparatuses) during some of this email correspondence with Obama.
If Clinton had been charged in the case, the fact that she was communicating with Obama and that he was using a fake address would have become central to the case.
That would have been profoundly embarrassing to Obama — and there was no way the Obama Justice Department was going to let that happen.
So the administration did three things.
First, the Obama White House argued that it was no big deal for high officials to use pseudonymous emails — in fact, it was standard practice.
Second, Obama made it publicly known in an April 2016 interview that he did not want Clinton to be indicted. . . .
