Hillary Clinton's campaign considered asking the White House to withhold any of her emails to or from President Obama on the same day Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, issued a subpoena for her records.
The revelation emerged in the seventh batch of emails obtained illegally from the inbox of John Podesta, Clinton's campaign chair, and published Friday by WikiLeaks.
"Think we should hold emails to and from potus [sic]?" Podesta wrote to Cheryl Mills, Clinton's former chief of staff, on March 4, 2015.
"That's the heart of his exec privilege," Podesta said. "We could get them to ask for that. They may not care, but I seems [sic] like they will."
