Hillary is in more trouble, and it has to do with her assistant, Huma Abedin.
It appears that Abedin has profited at taxpayer expense from her relationship with the Clintons. But as always with the Clinton Circle of Corruption, there is more to the story.
Huma Abedin is Clinton’s “body-woman” and now Vice-Chairwoman of Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Abedin, who has been with Clinton since 2008, is currently serving as Vice Chairwoman of Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Sources say that she is under fire for keeping about $10,000 of unused pay, but it is her potential conflict of interest while employed with the State Department that poses the biggest threat to Hillary.
It appears that while employed at the State Department, Abedin was also working with The Clinton Foundation and Teneo, a private political organization, currying political favors.
The issue of the emails comes up because, according to The Washington Times, out of the 3,577 messages that have been released so far, Abedin’s name appears in 1,538 of them and 660 were directly between her and Mrs. Clinton.
So, what’s in those messages? Evidence of collusion and possibly misuse of her leave pay.
We know there might have been a request made by Abedin’s boss at Teneo and long-time Bill Clinton cohort, Douglas Band, to make sure a large Clinton Foundation donor, Judith Rodin, be appointed to a White House post. Rodin is currently listed as the president of the Rockefeller Foundation.
Illegal? Maybe not. A conflict? Probably. It’s called playing for both sides.
Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley has highlighted from a recent Inspector General report, “at least a reasonable suspicion of a violation” of the law concerning the “theft of public money through time and attendance fraud” as well as “conflicts of interest connected to her overlapping employment,” as reported by the Washington Post on July 31, 2015.
Strong words associated with the woman who could potentially become the Valerie Jarrett of another Clinton presidency.
Abedin’s attorney, Karen L. Dunn, says her client has done nothing wrong.
