DAILY CALLER — The State Department official who sent the first known email acknowledging the existence of Hillary Clinton’s private email server now says he doesn’t remember how or when he first learned about the former secretary of state’s use of the device.
Stephen Mull, who served as executive secretary at the State Department during the bulk of Clinton’s tenure, offered his hazy recollections on Friday in a deposition with attorneys from Judicial Watch.
A federal judge granted the watchdog group permission to depose Mull and other current and former State Department officials concerning the creation of Clinton’s email system and about how the agency responded to Freedom of Information Act requests.
“Do you know how you learned [about Clinton’s server]?” Judicial Watch attorney Michael Bekesha asked Mull.
“I can’t recall, no,” Mulls responded.
“Do you recall when you learned that?” came the follow-up question.
“No. I can’t recall,” said Mull, who now serves as the Obama administration’s coordinator of the Iran nuclear deal implementation.
