WH Plotted With Team Hillary on Emails

Emails disclosed by the Republican National Committee indicated that White House officials were in contact with Hillary Clinton’s campaign in early 2015 about the potential for fallout from the disclosure of her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of State. The White House communications director reportedly requested to see if it was possible for Secretary of State John Kerry to avoid media questions about the server. The communication likely does not raise any legal concerns because the White House is allowed to engage in some political activity.
