"Im Aneh Si'aneh Oisoi Ki Im Tza'ok Yitz'ak Eilai Shamoa Eshma Tza'akosoi. V'Chara Api...; If you do mistreat him [them], when he cries out to Me, I will indeed hear his cry. My anger will rage... "(Mishpatim 22:22). The Vilna Gaon asks, "Why does it say, 'Ki Im Tzaok; Because if he screams?' The word Ki is extra."
Chazal tell us (Bava Basra 16:1) that Penina would make Chana feel bad about not having children to inspire her to daven more. It was all L'Shem Shamayim. Nevertheless, she was punished and all her children died.
The Vilna Gaon says that we see this in the pasuk. "Im Aneh Si'aneh Oisoi; If you pain people. Ki Im Tza'ok Yitz'ak Eilai; for the sole purpose of pushing them to cry out to me," even L'Shem Shamayim. "Shamoa Eshma Tza'akosoi; I will indeed heed their cries." But, "V'Chara Api; My anger will rage," and you, with all your good intentions, will pay a very high price.
In a January 29th briefing, State Department Spokesperson John Kirby stated, "As the White House has previously stated, Secretary Clinton and the President did on occasion exchange emails. As they have also said previously, such presidential records shall remain confidential to protect the President’s ability to receive unvarnished advice and counsel but will ultimately be released in accordance with the Presidential Records Act. I can confirm that 18 emails comprised of eight distinct email chains between former Secretary Clinton and President Obama are being withheld in full from the State Department’s FOIA production today of these emails of Secretary – former Secretary Clinton’s emails."
CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante interviewed President Obama about the emails last year and it can be viewed here.
Mr. President, when did you first learn that HIllary Clinton used an email system outside the U.S. government for official business while she was Secretary of State?
At the same time everyone else learned it - thorough news reports.
... The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency and that is why my emails - the blackberry that I carry around, all tose records are available and archived and I'm glad that Hillary has instructed that those emails that had to do with official business need to be disclosed.
You said you have the most transparent administration ever. You said it again just a couple of weeks ago.
How does this square with that?
