The Hillary Clinton campaign issued a ridiculous response to a bombshell report that linked her top aide, Huma Abedin, to a radical Muslim publication run by her mother.
It was reported yesterday by the New York Post that Abedin was assistant editor for the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs where her mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, remains editor-in-chief to this day.
“My understanding is that her name was simply listed on the masthead in that period,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill told the New York Post on Sunday evening, after the campaign ignored repeated requests to respond. “She did not play a role in editing at the publication.”
The news is particularly damaging for a campaign that prides itself as being a champion of women’s and LGBT rights, as the Journal produced articles that promoted the subjugation of women, said single mothers, working mothers and gay couples with children shouldn’t be considered families. It suggested women who dress proactively are partially responsible if they are raped, according to the Post.
But the most damaging article from the publication came in 2002, when Huma Abedin was listed as assistant editor, in which it blamed the United States for causing the terror attacks of 9/11 because of “injustices” it committed in the Muslim world, including sanctions against Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq.
