The White House Knew About Hillary Clinton's Private Emails In August

The White House was alerted in August 2014 to the potential problem of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email account during her tenure as secretary of state, Politico reported Friday.

Earlier this week, the New York Times reported that Clinton exclusively used a personal email to conduct State Department business, potentially in violation of federal regulations. A subsequent report by the Associated Press detailed how the email was hosted by a server located at her family's home in Chappaqua, New York. While some have pointed out that rules against using personal email for official business were not relayed to officials until 2014, the potential 2016 presidential candidate has faced criticism over the perceived lack of transparency. Clinton has since asked the State Department to make the private emails publicly available.

According to the Politico report, President Barack Obama's administration has been aware of the potential controversy since last summer, when a House Select Committee investigating the 2012 attack in Benghazi requested documents from the State Department. Officials in Foggy Bottom noticed that the documents included Clinton's private address.

So much for Obama's "I learned about it from the media" excuse!
