The very top of it says this...
"we need to clean this up - he has emails from her - they do not say state.gov"
I am not seeing anything problematic with this email. To me, it reads as "we need to address this".
I can see myself writing "we need to clean this up" when someone on my team fucks up. This doesn't necessary mean I will have commit fraud or have to bring a shovel and an old carpet to do this clean up.
Sure, you can chose to misunderstand this, but it would be contrived.
