Copied on the email were all the major Administration communication and political personnel including: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Deputy
Press Secretary Joshua Earnest, then-White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, then-White House Deputy Communications Director Jennifer
Palmieri, then-National Security Council Director of Communications Erin Pelton, Special Assistant to the Press Secretary Howli Ledbetter, and
then-White House Senior Advisor and political strategist Davie Plouffe, so there is no way the White House can contend they were unaware of the
