The Smoking Gun: Cheryl Mills' March 2015 "We Need To Clean This Up" Email
WikiLeaks' John Podesta series http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/10/433303.shtml has been extremely revealing. A bombshell dropped within last week's series may ? have prompted this past Friday's letter from FBI director Comey, to the U.S. Congress regarding 'further developments' in the Clinton email investigation and discovery of new information - in part because if he did not do so, the FBI's lag time behind WikiLeaks would cause his Bureau to be exposed as fools. That's due to evidence of a conspiracy by top Clinton campaign advisors concerning possession and distribution of proprietary and/or classified information within the email communications.
In a March 2015 email chain, Cheryl Mills (former defense counsel for Bill Clinton during his 1999 impeachment) told Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta of an interview in which President Barack Obama said he learned about Clinton's private email setup from news reports, and that Obama's answer on Clinton's private email use as Secretary of State needed "clean up" because he has emails from Hillary without the state.gov domain ID.
The Smoking Gun: Cheryl Mills Tells Podesta "We Need To Clean This Up - Obama Has Emails From Her"

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 state.gov
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?
Cheryl D. Mills is an American lawyer and corporate executive. She first came into public prominence while serving as deputy White House Counsel for President Bill Clinton, whom she defended during his 1999 impeachment trial. She has served as Senior Adviser and Counsel for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, and is considered a member of Hillary Clinton's group of core advisers, self-designated as "Hillaryland". She served as Counselor and Chief of Staff to Hillary Clinton during her whole tenure as United States Secretary of State.
On September 3, 2015, she testified before the House Select Committee on Benghazi regarding her and former Secretary Clinton's actions and role during the 2012 Benghazi attack, although the fact that she no longer held a security clearance may have limited the scope of the committee's questioning.
In a March 2015 email chain, Cheryl Mills told Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta of an interview in which Obama said he learned about Clinton's private email setup from news reports, and that President Barack Obama's answer on Clinton's private email use as Secretary of state needed "clean up":

A top Hillary Clinton adviser said President Barack Obama's answer on Clinton's private email use as secretary of state needed "clean up," according to hacked emails from her campaign chairman released Tuesday.
In a March 2015 email chain, Cheryl Mills, a top legal adviser and longtime member of Clinton's inner circle, told campaign Chairman John Podesta of an interview in which Obama said he learned about Clinton's private email setup from news reports.
"We need to clean this up -- he has emails from her -- they do not say state.gov," Mills wrote to Podesta.
WikiLeaks has released emails hacked from Podesta's private gmail account daily for more than two weeks.
