DAILYCALLER — The president of the conservative watchdog group Citizens United says it is “hard to believe” that Patrick Kennedy, the State Department’s under secretary for management, was unaware that Hillary Clinton used a private email server during her stint as secretary of state.
Last week, The Daily Caller reported that the State Department claimed that Kennedy, a 42-year veteran of the agency, was unaware that Clinton was utilizing the private email server as part of her off-the-books email setup.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner also said that Kennedy told the House Select Committee on Benghazi during an interview earlier this month that he did not know about the server.
But an email published last month by TheDC showed that Kennedy was involved in an Aug. 2011 email chain in which the server was discussed. And in that email, State’s then-executive secretary Stephen Mull so casually mentioned Clinton’s server that is appeared to not be secret among the upper echelons at the agency.
