Included the 18th batch of the Podesta Emails, released by WikiLeaks, is a March 7, 2015 email sent by Clinton spokesperson Josh Schwerin to communications director Jennifer Palmieri, press secretary Nick Merrill and others, referring to comments Obama made about the Clinton email scandal.
"Jen you probably have more on this but it looks like POTUS [President Obama] just said he found out HRC was using her personal email when he saw it in the news," the email read.
The email was forwarded onto Clinton staff member Cheryl Mills, who wrote to campaign manager John Podesta:
"…we need to clean this up — he has emails from her — they do not say state.gov."
The email exchange appears to contradict Obama's version of events, with the president telling CBS that he found out about Clinton's use of her private email account at "the same time everybody else learned it through news reports."
The latest revelations follow a series of embarrassing and potentially damaging leaks associated with the US democratic candidate, with WikiLeaks releasing more than 3,000 files related Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta.
