Hillary Clinton actually said this today:
“Now they apparently want to look at emails of one of my staffers…”
Huma Abedin has been with Hillary Clinton since 1996. And for most of those 20 years, she has been Ms. Clinton’s closest confidant. Some people even refer to her as Clinton’s “second daughter”.
But because there is a possibility Ms. Abedin’s electronic devices may contain material damaging to the Clinton campaign (the prospect alone is wreaking havoc on it), she has suddenly become just “one of my staffers”? Some go-fer who sits at that desk over there…uh, what’s her name anyway?
Maybe Huma Abedin is understanding enough to realize that Clinton thinks this is the way to play it – i.e. if the staffer is inconsequential, any information on the staffer’s computer must be as well.
And maybe the rest of us are understanding enough to realize that this characterization of Ms. Abedin is as fraudulent as just about everything else about Hillary Clinton.
