Valerie Jarrett throws Hillary under the bus
Double-teaming with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s Supreme Leader, demonstrated what the White House really wants to happen in the race for the Democratic nomination. Joe Biden most assuredly got the message, as did Hillary. Blake Seitz of the Free Beacon reports:
White House Chief of Staff Valerie Jarrett admitted Wednesday that the White House had issued guidance to cabinet secretaries recommending they use government email for official business—guidance that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ultimately ignored.
“Weren’t there guidelines from the White House to all cabinet secretaries to use government email?” MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Jarrett at an event sponsored by the Aspen Institute.
“Well, yes there were. Yeah, absolutely,” Jarrett said.
“Obviously, we want to make sure we preserve all government records, so there was guidance given that government business should be done on government emails and that if you did use a private email it should be turned over,” Jarrett said.
Right after inserting the stiletto, Jarret put a little dab of disinfectant not on the wound, but on some skin nearby:
“She’s working hard to comply with making sure everything is pursuant to the Federal Records Act,” Jarrett said.
Translation: she broke the law.
Now is the time for the Hilary camp to let Team Obama know that if they are going to play the game this way, she has a few nuggets of her own to deliver. There is the question of where Obama was during the Benghazi attack, for instance.
Stay tuned: there is nothing quite like a catfight between the Clinton faction and the Obama faction, for they both play dirty.
