Obama used a super-secure pseudonym for emails with Homebrew Hillary, so no problem

It was Friday night, which meant that the FBI unloaded another batch of documents related to the Hillary Clinton investigation. Nothing to see here, other than Clinton was communicating with Obama via her unsecured server, which in and of itself isn’t exactly breaking news. However, we do now know that the White House was thwarting any potentially hostile actors by having the president use a fake name:

President Barack Obama used a pseudonym in email communications with Hillary Clinton and others, according to FBI records made public Friday.

The disclosure came as the FBI released its second batch of documents from its investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.
[…]
In an April 5, 2016 interview with the FBI, Abedin was shown an email exchange between Clinton and Obama, but the longtime Clinton aide did not recognize the name of the sender.

“Once informed that the sender’s name is believed to be pseudonym used by the president, Abedin exclaimed: ‘How is this not classified?'” the report says. “Abedin then expressed her amazement at the president’s use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email.”

The State Department has refused to make public that and other emails Clinton exchanged with Obama. Lawyers have cited the “presidential communications privilege,” a variation of executive privilege, in order to withhold the messages under the Freedom of Information Act.

This is all impossible, because Obama’s said last year that he had no idea Clinton used a private account and server:

After having emailed Clinton’s private address using a pseudonym, Obama learned about Hillary’s server shenanigans “from news reports,” naturally!

The weekend challenge — should you choose to accept — it is to guess Obama’s email pseudonym. I’m going with either “Choom with a View,” “Selfie Shtick” or “Definitely Not Obama.”

Another interesting item:

Huma Abedin told the FBI she had forwarded some State Department emails to her personal Yahoo account because it made them easier to print. What could possibly go wrong with that?

Yahoo said on Thursday that information for at least 500 million user accounts was stolen from its network in 2014 by what it believed was a state-sponsored actor, a theft that appeared to the biggest cyber breach ever.
