Nothing to See: Huma Abedin’s Emails 100 Percent Redacted
I’d love to hear again how there was no classified information in State Department emails between Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin. If that’s the case, why are many of Huma Abedin’s emails 100 percent redacted?
If Huma Abedin’s emails were 10 percent redacted, that would still be too much. Either they are hiding incriminating information or they have classified information.
We’ve learned that Judicial Watch released 725 pages of State Department emails between Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. 250 of the 725 pages were 100 percent redacted.
Recall that Hillary Clinton on many occasions has said she wants the information released to the public. However, apparently her staff isn’t getting the memos, as they seem thwart all attempts to get the information to the public.
And it’s not just the Clinton team who thwarts the truth. Clearly the Obama administration believes a large percentage of the emails sent through Clinton’s private server too sensitive for Congress or the American public to read. Perhaps somebody should point this out the FBI Director James Comey?
Just so you don’t miss the irony: these emails were too sensitive for Congress or the people who pay the bills, but not enough for law firm representing Hillary Clinton?
Many of the redacted pages were stamped “PAGE DENIED.”
According to Judicial Watch, the new cache includes previously unreleased email exchanges in which former Abedin “provided influential Clinton Foundation donors special, expedited access to the secretary of state.”
The Clinton camp has attempted to blow this off as “no big deal.” They claim that no malfeasance occurred, as many Clinton Foundation donors sought and received access to the State Department. The Clinton camp says, “there’s smoke, but no fire,” as they continue to roast their chestnuts on the open fire.
This saga reminds me of when Lance Armstrong was accused of doping, he said, “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” That evidence eventually came, and the dominoes started to fall.
Judicial Watch showed that in many instances, the preferential treatment provided to donors was at the specific request of Clinton Foundation executive Douglas Band.
“The Abedin emails reveal that the longtime Clinton aide apparently served as a conduit between Clinton Foundation donors and Hillary Clinton while Clinton served as secretary of state. In more than a dozen email exchanges, Abedin provided expedited, direct access to Clinton for donors who had contributed from $25,000 to $10 million…”
There was no point of demarcation between The Clinton Foundation and the State Department. The State Department under Hillary Clinton gave dotted line authority to the Clinton family extortion agency. The drip of this scandal can and should haunt Hillary Clinton’s dreams. We can only hope that the scandal resonates with voters, and haunts Clinton’s campaign.
