WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, sent a letter to Archivist David Ferriero of the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration Thursday to request email communication between former Secretary Clinton and President Obama.

Based on a communication from FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok to FBI Director James Comey’s Chief of Staff James Rybicki, there appears to be multiple emails that exist between Secretary Clinton and President Obama. On June 28, 2016, a week before former FBI Director Comey’s public statement exonerating Secretary Clinton, FBI Special Agent Strzok wrote, “Jim – I have the POTUS – HRC emails [Director Comey] requested at end of briefing yesterday. I hesitate to leave them, please let me know a convenient time to drop them off.”

Today Senator Johnson wrote, “I write to request email communications between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama. In January 2018, I requested the Department of Justice (DOJ) produce emails Secretary Clinton sent to President Obama while she was located in the ‘territory of a sophisticated adversary.’

“Given that DOJ acknowledged that they ‘are not in a position’ to produce emails to the Committee that contain ‘equities of other executive branch entities,’ I ask that, pursuant to the Presidential Records Act, you please provide all email communications between Secretary Clinton and President Obama.”
