The Smoking Gun: Cheryl Mills Tells Podesta "We Need To Clean This Up - Obama Has Emails From Her"

Tyler Durden's picture

Recall that in a March 2015 interview with CBS, just after the NYT reported of Hillary's use of a private email server, president Obama told the American public he had only learned about Hillary's "unusual" arrangement from the press.

As we further reminded readers one month ago, CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama. "The same time everybody else learned it through news reports," the president told Plante. "The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails, the BlackBerry I carry around, all those records are available and archived," Mr. Obama said. "I'm glad that Hillary's instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed."

Unfortunately, the "transparency" of the Obama administration was severely tarnished in late September, when in the FBI's interview notes with Huma Abedin released by the FBI it was first revealed that Obama had used a pseudonymous email account: "Once informed that the sender's name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: 'How is this not classified?'" the report says. "Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president's use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email."

To be sure, this was not definitive evidence that Obama was aware of Hillary's email server, nor that there may have been collusion between the president and the Clinton campaign.

That changed today, however, when in the latest Podesta dump we learn that in an email from Cheryl Mills to John Podesta, the Clinton aide upon learning what Obama had just said...

... countered with something quite stunning:

we need to clean this up - he has emails from her - they do not say

That, ladies and gentlemen, is proof that the president not only lied, but did so with the clear intention of protecting the Clinton campaign.

As a further reminder, Politico previously reported that the State Department had refused to make public that and other emails Clinton exchanged with Obama. Lawyers cited the "presidential communications privilege," a variation of executive privilege, in order to withhold the messages under the Freedom of Information Act. It is therefore unknown what the president's "alternative" email account was, or who hosted it.

This also explains why in a prior Wikileak, Podesta told Mills in an email titled "Special Category" that she thinks "we should hold emails to and from potus? That's the heart of his exec privilege. We could get them to ask for that. They may not care, but I(t) seems like they will." Mills did not respond by email.

The Clinton-Obama emails were turned over to the State Department, which later announced it would not release them.

* * *

So just how did Mills and Podesta "clean up" the fact that Obama lied to the American people, a tactic some could allege is evidence of an attempt to cover up a presidential lie to protect Hillary Clinton.

What we do know, and we assume this is completely unrelated, between March 25-31, just a couple of weeks after Mills said "we need to clean this up," Bleachbit was used to wipe Hillary's private server clean. But of course, that is purely a coincidence.

Since we are confident others will also demand an answer, in light of the latest revelation hinting at a collusive cover up extending to the very top of US government, or as Cheryl Mills dubbed it a "clean up", perhaps it is time for the State Depratment to unveil just what was said between the president and the Clinton campaign?

... this is the same Cheryl Mills, Senior Counsel to Clinton after committing perjury to Congress, who received immunity from Loretta Lynch who, in 1999, Bill Clinton nominated US Attorney NY and now head of the DOJ (Dept of Just Us), and who together with Sandy Berger, Bill Clinton's National Security Adviser and National Archives records thief, all worked together as lawyers at the Hogan & Hartson law firm.  Hogan & Hartson has been Bonnie & Clyde's, sorry, Bill & Hiliary Clinton's go-to guys for tax advice since 2004 ...

... see the connection? ... they simply protect each others' criminal asses ...

... to connect more dots and see further the corrupt connection to Comey Chameleon, watch this >>>

Another day another scandal. I like election time. So much public dirt washing really gives you the right impression of the State of the Union and policies in the leading Western Nation.


Assange please drop some more, we need a proper cleansing as it may get worse pretty soon with Clinton in the WH.

Huffington post is wising up maybe?

"The Saudis hired the Podesta Group in 2015 because it was getting hammered in the press over civilian casualties from its airstrikes in Yemen"

But their screaming like mashed cats to get a no flyzone in Syria.  They fucking reek of hypocracy.

Hey yippee kiyay, previously mofio then santafe then Aristotle of Greece then Gargoyle then bleu then oops then lance-a-lot then Loftie then toro. You are a serial spammer and a serial pain in the ass. Might I politely suggest that you go fuck yourself? And get a life.

Would appreciate regular ZH contributors please take a moment to help me in my campaign against this idiot and report yippee kiyay to

PS. You might have noticed that my attempt to expose you for what you are is always the same. That’s because your Spam is always the same (Using fake links to your BS site which has no connection to your comments; which are deliberately dramatic to mislead people into responding or clicking on the fake link) so it seems only fair that my exposure of your crap should also always be the same. An eye for an eye.

Are you ZHer's aware of the fact that ABC news has a video of Bill Clinton, drunk, with his hand up a flight attendants skirt? Are you aware that Bill Clinton had been raping or attempting to rape  women even over in UK while at Oxford? Yeah, Trump's an asshole, but Bill and Hillary are truly evil criminals.

and hillary's vengeful use of private investigators to humiliate and intimidate bill's victims certainly puts the lie to her pose as an advocate for women's rights.

The Obama-Hillary Democrat administration is corrpter then anyone could have imagined. If some agency or person does not indict these crooks, we can expect the infection to spread and become even deeper and widespread when others see no one is arrested.

We see it on Wall Street where Bankers are free to steal, loot and fraudulate with not ONE banker arrested under Bush or Obama and none will be under crooked Hillary either.  Now we see it in throughout our government.

No wonder FEMA and the other gubmint agencies bought billions of rounds of ammo and thousands of ARs. They are afraid honest Americans might get nasty. However, I suspect they are too apathetic and lazy to do so and we will drift into Zimbabwe oppression without a peep.

Only question left in my mind is whether I want to buy land for a homestead here in the U.S., or if I should be looking around in other countries.

If you're young enough to be accepted as an emigre into another country, then get the hell out of the U S as fast as you can. This natiion is finished, absolutely finished, as a middle class haven. Emigrate. Emigrate now. Because there will come a time when you won't be able to get out. Your children will thank you for it, believe me. I wish I had gone while I had the chance.

The deep state is not worried about riots.  Riots burn out in a few days.  The deep state is worried about systemic collapse.  They are worried about the lights going out and the loss of 90% of the population in the first year.

WorkingPoor's picture

The only reason the DS gives a damn about a 90% population loss is that they want to be sure they and just enough serfs/slaves/proles to keep the nuclear powerplants running and unmelted-down, food and supplies coming, and enough electricity so they can have ice in their f'n booze "like a civilized man."


Likely they'd just as soon 75% as 90%


My heart goes out to, of all people, the Amish. Hard workers, self sufficient... and will be terrorized without pity until they are foreced to sell themselves to the State.

"we can expect the infection to spread"

Too late for that. This cancer has reached every node of western civilization already. That's what cancers do unless removed very early in their development. The real issue is that an advanced stage of cancer will always kill its host. So, if you believe we can live alongside this cancer just by installing a different president, I fear a rather nasty awakening is on the cards. The only way to right this ship is to cut out ALL of the cancer and destroy it completely. Too tall an order methinks...

"The sheer volume of fraud and corruption is simply fantastic."

Oh, but the MSM claim it's all just "normal politicking."

If this shit defines what's "normal," then why was Nixon chased out of office?

Hitlery and Willy make Nixon look like a choir boy.

(NOT a Nixon promoter, mind you, just comparing).

Just imagine Nixon's wife Pat deciding to run for pResidont after what happened to him. Unlike Hill'rey, as far as I know, Pat did not engage in a career of scandals spanning decades. The whole thing is outrageous.

All these emails revealing all these lies, but no real meat

No gory war planing, Assassinations, Murders, just character flaws, money grubbing, and a glimpse into their crimes, same as we always knew.

but never enough to prosecute these "important" people.  Sure, plenty of evidence to hang you and I!

All just confirming what we've all known.  Nothing anyone in DC says can be trusted, they're all corrupted, all of them captured.  Every last one of them have dirt on each other, from the President, Congress, State Department Chiefs, Generals, Governors, every last one of them with any power, are one big fucking swamp!

I certainly hope a real "Smoking Gun" is leaked, and any further lame excuses not to hang this bunch is wiped out!

Riding off into the sunset a two time loser is far to fucking good for this witch!
