With two new congressional investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and “pay-to-play” scheme at the State Department, a new explosive report reveals a top Clinton confidant broke the law.
Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group, published a report last week showing that at least 18 classified emails were buried within 798 documents on Clinton’s private email server when she worked at the State Department.
Abdein, a top Clinton confidant, then backed up many of those emails onto her Anthony Weiner’s laptop in 2013 after Clinton had left the department. Weiner is currently serving a prison sentence for sending sexually lewd text messages to a minor, and the evidence was found by authorities when the FBI seized his laptop.
Of those 18, 13 emails contained classified information that discussed missions in Saudi Arabia, The Hague, Egypt, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Syria, Lebanon, Hamas, and the Palestinian Liberation Organization.
Abedin’s emails also revealed the identity of a CIA official, which placed the individual at a heightened risk of being killed or attacked.
In an email from November 25, 2010, found on Weiner’s laptop, Abedin forwarded an email to set up a phone call with Prince Saud to discuss “expected WikiLeaks leaks.”
The following day, Abedin sent another email with classified information from Weiner’s laptop to discuss a private meeting with “Jeff” – Judicial Watch believes this refers to then-U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman – had with United Arab Emirates Prime Minister Abdullah bin Zayed.
In a July 9, 2011 email, Abedin sent classified information relating to a call between Clinton and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, where the State Department was going to sway Israel to allow the terrorist-supporting Palestine Liberation Organization to have more power in the region.
These emails and the others were obtained by Judicial Watch as part of a May 5, 2015, lawsuit, where the watchdog group sued the State Department with a Freedom of Information Act request.
Many Americans would agree that Abedin and Clinton should be held accountable for putting our nation’s security at risk, and there is clear evidence they broke the law, lied, and tried to cover up corruption.
