With Congress launching two new investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton email scandal and “pay-to-play” scheme at the State Department, a top Clinton ally has been busted lying under oath.
Huma Abedin, who has worked for Clinton for a more than a decade, backed up additional copies of her emails with Clinton to her husband’s laptop, which is a direct contradiction to what she said on record on two separate occasions.
Abedin backed up many of her State Department emails onto Anthony Weiner’s laptop in 2013 after Clinton had left the department, according to the Daily Mail after reviewing her emails.
However, Abedin told the FBI she “lost most of her old emails as a result of the transition” from the State Department.
“She had only accessed clintonemail.com through a web portal and did not have a method for archiving her old emails prior to the transition,” Abedin told FBI investigators, according to notes taken on Abedin on April 5, 2016.
Abedin doubled down on that statement in June 2016, where she said she never saved or backed up any emails from the State Department.
“With respect to those State Department work-related emails on the Clintonemail.com accounts, what did you do, if anything, to preserve those emails?” asked an attorney with Judicial Watch.
Abedin claimed that she “did not do anything to preserve those emails.”
“The instances where it was Clintonemail to Clintonemail, there were instances where the content of those emails had personal matters in there, and there may have also been State Department matters in there, too. It was a – a combination. But I did not – I did not preserve those e-mails,” Abedin said.
She lied to the FBI and Judicial Watch, which is a felony.
Last week, Judicial Watch published a report showing they found “at least 18 classified emails in the 798 documents recently produced by the State Department from the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s elicit email system.”
Among those 18 emails, Judicial Watch reported that 13 contained classified information pertaining to Saudi Arabia, The Hague, Egypt, South Africa, Zimbabwe, the identity of a CIA agent, Malawi, the war in Syria, Lebanon, and Hamas.
President Donald Trump, speaking about the congressional investigation into Clinton’s email scandal – which also includes Abedin and other former Clinton employees – said that he believes Abedin should go to prison.
Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others

Many, many Americans agree with Trump that Abedin and Clinton deserve to go to jail for their crimes that put our nation’s security at risk.
There is clear evidence that Clinton, Abedin, and others have broken the law, lied, and tried to cover up a major acts of corruption.
With Republicans controlling both branches in Congress, perhaps Clinton and her cronies will finally be held accountable for their illegal actions.
