Over the holidays, mainstream media attempted to deflect attention away from yet another Hillary Clinton scandal. Former aide Huma Abedin forwarded classified documents and top-secret passwords to her private Yahoo account. Now, President Trump is calling out the Justice Department and demanding they do their job.
Last Friday, the State Department quietly dumped a batch of emails from Abedin’s account. The FBI found the emails on a laptop belonging to her estranged husband Anthony Weiner. At least four of the documents discovered during the investigation were marked “classified.”
In addition to the classified docs, the FBI discovered that Abedin forwarded sensitive State Department communications to her private email account. Even worse, she sent passwords for her government laptop to the non-secure account as well.
Shortly after forwarding the information, Abedin’s Yahoo account was hacked as part of a full-scale breach by foreign agents in 2013. However, that isn’t where her guilt ends. If you recall, she was also instrumental in protecting Clinton during the FBI’s investigation of her mishandling of classified documents.
During that probe, Abedin, along with Cheryl Mills, were interviewed by FBI agent Peter Strzok. The same Peter Strzok that is now under investigation for several reasons. One of which includes his sending anti-Trump texts while he was working on Robert Mueller’s team.
Now, any of this information is reason enough to investigate Abedin and Clinton. Although, the web of lies and deceit spun by the Clinton team could take years to completely unravel. Nevertheless, it needs to be done. And if President Trump has his way, you can bet it will be. Responding to the news, Trump unloaded on the DOJ.
“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?” Trump tweeted. “Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act?”
Incidentally, the submarine pictures the president is referring to relate to Kristian Saucier. Saucier, a U.S. Navy sailor, served one year in prison after taking unauthorized photos on a nuclear sub. It was a mistake, albeit a serious one, but still just one mistake.
Yet, while Clinton and Abedin are footloose and fancy-free, Saucier is collecting trash 70 hours a week. He is busy trying to salvage his life and praying for a pardon. Clinton is selling books and blaming everyone but herself for her troubles.
Let that sink in for a moment.
