Clinton Aide Abedin Sent Classified Documents Using a Personal Email Account

Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s aide-de-camp, may have more problems than a sexting husband.

Abedin forwarded classified national security email through an unsecured personal account, according to the latest batch of emails released through Judicial Watch.

Jerome Corsi for WND writes that of the 160 emails contained in the batch, 110 were forwarded to Abedin through redacted email addresses. The content of all the Abedin emails released to Judicial Watch were redacted to one degree or another, indicating the information was of a sensitive nature. Many of the emails were completely redacted or denied entirely.

“In other words, almost half of the emails that Abedin forwarded to her unsecured personal account have information the State Department deems too sensitive to be seen by members of Congress or the American people,” Corsi writes.

While the email addresses were largely redacted under a State Department personal-privacy exemption, one document reveals the address [email protected], an apparent oversight.

Prior to the Judicial Watch release this week, it was unconfirmed Abedin had used a personal email account to forward email containing classified information.

Abedin not only sent sensitive information through her personal email account but also stored classified documents in her car. According to The Washington Times, she asked an aide to move classified documents from the front seat of her car to the trunk, which she considered a “secure” place.

“I’m going to have ambassador ride on next drive,” she told Clinton staffer Lauren Jiloty in an email. “There’s a bunch of burn stuff in the pocket of my front seat. Can u put it in trunk.”

The emails also show Abedin and another Clinton associate, Cheryl Mills, parceled out favors to top Clinton Foundation donors at the behest of executives at the foundation. One of the released emails reveals donors were expected to work through Abedin.

New York real estate mogul Benjamin Ringel, who donated $25,000 Clinton Foundation, acknowledged the process of going through Abedin to request favors. Ringel sought a letter of support and was told by Abedin that was not permissible.

“If the crown prince of Bahrain wanted some face time with Madam Secretary, or a sports-entertainment executive needed a visa for a British soccer player (with an unspecified criminal background), or Bono demanded access to the international space station, it was, apparently, Huma Abedin’s problem,” writes Eric Levitz of

Prior to the latest revelations and the batch of heavily redacted emails, Abedin was questioned by the FBI about Clinton’s private email server. “Abedin was interviewed for about two hours at the FBI’s field office in Washington on April 5, according to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing,” the Los Angeles Times reported.

“Most legal experts, including a number of former federal prosecutors, believe that Clinton faces little risk of being prosecuted for using the private email system to conduct official business when she served as secretary of State,” the newspaper added.

Indeed, this is precisely what happened.

In July, FBI director James Comey refused to recommend criminal charges in the email server case. Comey said Clinton’s conduct did not amount to “intentional misconduct or indications of disloyalty to the United States or efforts to obstruct justice.”

“We are pleased that the career officials handling this case have determined that no further action by the department is appropriate,” said Brian Fallon, the Clinton campaign spokesman. “As the secretary has long said, it was a mistake to use her personal email and she would not do it again. We are glad that this matter is now resolved,” The New York Times reported.
