Huma Abedin & Cheryl Mills told the FBI they didn’t know about Hillary’s server. Just one problem…


Two of Hillary Clinton’s top aides at the State Department — Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin — told the FBI that they were unaware of the former secretary of state’s use of a private email server.

However, emails they exchanged with one another tell a different story, The Daily Caller reported.

Mills served as Clinton’s chief of staff, and Abedin as deputy chief of staff during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

The report the FBI released Friday indicated that most of the State Department employees claimed they “had no knowledge” that Clinton was using a private server, which she kept at her New York home.

“Clinton’s immediate aides, to include Mills, Abedin, Jacob Sullivan, and [redacted] told the FBI they were unaware of the existence of the private server until after Clinton’s tenure at State or when it became public knowledge.”

Both top aides also vaguely denied knowledge of the private server during depositions with Judicial Watch until they had left office.

Mills told the conservative watchdog group that she first learned of Clinton’s private server after they all left the State Department and Mills became Clinton’s lawyer.

“But in terms of the technicalities of how it was managed…I don’t have any recollection of having conversations around that until the time period where I was representing Secretary Clinton with Mr. Cooper,” she said in her May 27 deposition.

Abedin was also vague in her own testimony during her June 28 deposition with Judicial Watch.

“I don’t know that I experienced the — the notion of the server for — for my purposes. It was a matter of obtaining an e-mail address,” she said. “I didn’t really think about the server until the — all the press reports in the last year and a half.”

However, after an email Mills sent to Clinton came back as undeliverable, she sent a message to Abedin and Justin Cooper, a Bill Clinton aide who helped set up the private server.

“hrc email coming back — is server okay?” her email to the pair said.

“Ur funny. We are on the same server,” Cooper told Mills and Abedin.

The server was mentioned again in an email from Cooper telling Abedin that he had to shut the server down.

“Someone was trying to hack us,” he said. “I will reset it in the morning.”

Abedin, Mills and Clinton were all interviewed by the FBI, but all three failed to cooperate with the State Department’s Inspector General’s investigation.
