Yesterday, after the invaluable Judicial Watch fighting tooth and nail to get them released, we have found that some 2,800 emails of Hillary Clinton’s most trusted confidant, Huma Abedin, were on the laptop of her disgraced and jailed husband, Anthony Weiner – and they include classified material.
You can read all about it in Brent D. Griffiths’ article for politico.com – part of which is excerpted below:
The State Department on Friday released 2,800 work-related emails from Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, that were found by the FBI on the laptop computer of Abedin’s husband, disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York.
Five of the messages from Abedin were marked classified, like numerous other emails that were sent or received by Clinton or her aides then deemed classified by the State Department in the process of preparing them for public release in response to Freedom of Information Act requests and lawsuits. Friday’s batch of emails is connected to a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, a conservative group that is seeking access to work messages Abedin sent from a personal email account.
Describing the release, a State Department spokesperson said the department “carefully reviews the content of records requested through FOIA to determine whether any information is sensitive or classified.”
“Today’s production will have documents with classified information that has been redacted,” the spokesperson said.
Are you surprised? I would hope not: why else would Abedin, Clinton, etc. have fought so long and hard to avoid the release of this information.
Oh, and it turns out that the classified information (that we know of so far – stay tuned) all has to do with “Palestine” and, more generally the Middle East.
This is particularly important given that Huma Abedin -and her entire family – I’m talking her late father, her mother and brother – all have been neck-deep in the Muslim Brotherhood.
Do you detect an aroma there? If not, you need nasal surgery. Fast.
And, as for our wonderful “neutral” media – CBS, NBC, ABC – which have kept Ms. Abedin’s familial associations buried and locked in a vault until now? They are barely reporting that this release took place.
Doubt me? Go to each of their websites, then try and find the story. The only one I saw anything on was an article at CBS’s site – which made sure to tell us that Judicial Watch is a “conservative” group – i.e. one of that bunch. (This, of course, might change as the day goes on).
Yesterday, I heard a talking head on one of the cable shows point out that, had Clinton won, Abedin might well have wound up Chief Of Staff.
Think about that. Then think about the virtual media blackout. And wonder, along with me, why these “journalists” could be surprised that fewer and fewer people trust them.
