I’m sure this can be explained away.
It seems Hillary Clinton‘s top State Department aide, Huma Abedin, rivals her boss for careless handling of classified materials as new emails revealed.
Materials that were classified and supposed to be burned were left on the front seat of Abedin’s car, according to emails released on Monday from the Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, The Daily Caller reported.
Abedin’s July 20, 2009 email with the subject line “Favor,” asked Clinton’s personal assistant, Lauren Jiloty, to move a “bunch of burn stuff” that she left in her vehicle.
The State Department’s website shows Clinton was in India in that time period, Daily Caller reported.
According to the State Department’s Foreign Affairs Manual, only material deemed classified should be burned.
“Burn bags must contain only the classified material that is to be destroyed. Personal documents, trash, recyclable materials, metal objects (such as binder clips and acco fasteners), string, twine, spiral bindings, cleaning cloths, food, or any other object that is not classified material should not be placed in a burn bag,” the manual reads.
During a deposition with Judicial Watch lawyers in June, Abedin admitted Clinton often destroyed her schedules using a burn bag.
Though the FBI did not recommend an indictment against Clinton following the investigation into her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state, the agency’s Director James Comey admitted that she was “extremely careless” in handling classified information.
It appears, with the newest revelations from Abedin’s email exchanges, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
