This is UNBELIEVABLE. It’s not just email– this put LIVES at risk.
Huma Abedin, Hillary’s BFF and the woman likely to become the White House Chief of Staff under a Hillary Administration, plays fast and loose with security protocols.
Take a look at this article that was posted on Wednesday, October 26, two days before Comey sent the letter to Congress about the information found in a ‘related investigation’ that resulted in the reopening of the email investigation.
Protective detail assigned to guard former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her two residences complained that her closest aide Huma Abedin often overrode standard security protocols during trips to the Middle East, and personally changed procedures for handling classified information, including highly sensitive intelligence briefs the CIA prepared for the president, newly released FBI documents reveal.
The security agents, who were interviewed as witnesses in the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s use of an unauthorized private email server to send classified information, complained that Abedin had unusual sway over security policies during Clinton’s 2009-2013 tenure at Foggy Bottom.
According to FBI interview notes, a diplomatic service agent assigned to Hillary’s security detail said that Abedin had ‘much more power’ over Hillary’s staff, security and schedule than other former chiefs of staff. The agent also said that, ‘ Abedin herself was often responsible for overriding security and diplomatic protocols on behalf of Clinton.’
Huma was pretty careless oversees as well. During a trip to the Middle East, Abedin had the driver of an armored vehicle roll down the windows in the West Bank so that Hillary could be seen waving to the Palestinian people. The optics were more important than actual security in disputed territory. This one act put the lives of everyone in that vehicle at risk. The longstanding procedures had been to keep windows closed due to security concerns.
Abedin had told the FBI in April 2016 that she found out about the private Clinton email server the same time the public found out.
Another witness told the FBI that he and another aide with an IT background set up the server at Abedin’s suggestion.
Oddly, Abedin is the only State Department employee that had her own email account with the domain name ‘clintonemail.com’.
So, she had an email account with a domain name on a server that she knew nothing about, but had recommended setting up.
Abedin was careless with her email, often forwarding info from her state.gov account to her clintonemail.com account, including classified information, so that she could ‘print it at home’.
…By forwarding classified emails to her personal email account, Abedin appears to have violated a Classified Information NonDisclosure Agreement she signed at the State Department on Jan. 30, 2009, in which she agreed to keep all classified material under the control of the US government.
Even so, the FBI did not search Abedin’s laptop or Yahoo email account at any point in their year-long investigation into possible mishandling of classified information and espionage. Nor did the bureau call Abedin back for additional questioning, despite documentary evidence, as well as the statements from other witnesses, that clearly contradicted her own statements.
Huma may have kept email that Hillary didn’t BleachBit.
And this may be what triggered the reopening of the investigation.
