Valerie Jarrett says she simply doesn’t know if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ever sent an email to the White House from her private account.
In an interview with Bloomberg TV on Friday, the top Obama advisor was asked if she ever received an email from Clinton – which would have appeared without the appropriate State.gov address — while the former secretary was part of the administration.
“I actually did not,” she said. “No, I did not receive an email from Hillary Clinton.”
“Did members of the administration receive emails from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State?” Jarrett was asked.
“That I don’t know,” she replied, adding that President Obama “has a very firm policy” on archiving emails.
“Does that mean she broke the policy?” Jarrett was pressed.
“I’ll defer to the State Department for that,” she said.
