Long-time Hillary Clinton aid, Huma Abedin, admitted in a court deposition that she had concerns surrounding her boss’ use of a private email server while Clinton was Secretary of State.
Abedin said in the deposition that she was first alarmed by the private server when a phone call from a foreign minister was missed by Clinton when the email informing her of the call had gone into her ‘spam’ folder, according to the New York Post.
“She missed the call because . . . I never got the email giving us the signoff to do it [the meeting]. So she wasn’t able to do her job, do what she needed to do,” Abedin said in the deposition.
Abedin was also forced to talk about an email she and Clinton exchanged in 2010, in which she raised problems she had with Clinton’s private server.
“We should talk about putting you on state [department] email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam,” Abedin recommended to Clinton.
“I remember looking for solutions whenever there were challenges with communications,” Abedin told Judicial Watch attorneys, the group that sued the State Department for access to Clinton’s private emails.
“My response would have been, here are some suggestions,” said Abedin. “She clearly missed the window in this exchange.”
Abedin said she was annoyed with the fact that she wasn’t getting Clinton’s messages but Clinton wasn’t fond of talking about the issue, according to Abedin.
“I don’t recall any response . . . we just proceeded with business the way it was before,” Abedin said, admitting that Clinton just kept using the private email server even after she voiced her concerns.
Abedin said she “absolutely” does not believe that Clinton was trying to avoid having her emails up for public record, though she maintains that she had nothing to do with the server.
“I wasn’t involved in the setting up of the server,” Abedin said.
