The final email on the thread reading “Subject: Fwd: POTUS on HRC emails,” which was sent on March 7, 2015, longtime Clinton aide and lawyer Cheryl Mills wrote “we need to clean this up – he [Obama] has emails from her – they do not say state.gov.” [period added]

“The same time everyone else learned it through news reports,” Mr. Obama said in response to Mr. Plante asking when he “first learned that Hillary Clinton used an email system outside the U.S. government for official business while she was secretary of state.”
