So we suppose nobody is supposed to know about Grandma’s top aide testifying before a Congressional committee? If they’ve got nothing to hide and are confident in themselves, why the bitching and moaning?
Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Thursday night slammed the House Select Committee on Benghazi for publicly announcing the Friday appearance of her top campaign organizer before the panel, dismissing it as “just another tactic in their partisan plan to go after Hillary Clinton.”
Huma Abedin, the vice chairwoman of Hillary for America who also worked for Clinton at the State Department, had been scheduled weeks ago to testify Friday behind closed doors. On Thursday, the committee circulated a background memo that confirmed her appearance and noted that investigators would only ask her about Libya policy and events related to the 2012 attack.
But the campaign accused the panel of playing politics, particularly because the committee rarely announces appearances before they happen — and because Abedin wasn’t at the State Department the night of the Benghazi attacks, they said. The campaign also said Abedin, who was working part-time at State around the time of the attack, has limited “knowledge about the events surrounding Benghazi.”
“The Committee’s focus on Huma (as opposed to numerous intelligence and defense community officials still outstanding) is additional evidence that the actual attack in Benghazi, and its lessons about how we might better protect diplomats serving in dangerous places, are the last things on the committee’s mind,” the campaign said a statement.
“The Republicans’ focus on her of all people, and their decision to leak details about her appearance, is just another tactic in their partisan plan to go after Hillary Clinton,” the statement added.
It’s almost as if these lying scumbags want to play the victim to avoid any accountability for their massive cover-up. Meanwhile, another secret email address of Grandma’s consigliere was uncovered Thursday.
A previously unknown e-mail address used by Huma Abedin was discovered on Thursday, just hours before the top Hillary Clinton aide prepares to testify in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi.
Conservative watchdog group Citizens United discovered the address in an e-mail exchange that shows Clinton Foundation CEO Robert Harrison forwarding a speaking invitation for then-Secretary of State Clinton to both Abedin’s State Department account and an unfamiliar Abedin address on November 6, 2012. “I tried to send this to your ‘clintonemail.com’ address, but it bounced back as undeliverable, so here it is again,” Harrison wrote.
The new address is titled “humamabedin,” and appears to be a private e-mail account. The State Department redacted the account’s domain name, citing a personal-privacy exemption. A spokesman for the Benghazi Committee did not immediately respond when asked if the committee was aware of the e-mail account, and if it is under investigation for possibly containing official or classified government information on the September 11, 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya.
In August, the State Department admitted to a federal judge that Abedin and others close to Clinton used private accounts to conduct government business, and that they were unable to search those accounts for official records.
But we’re sure she’s got nothing to hide, except for everything. Clinton and her cronies pretend they’re transparent and have nothing to hide, yet three-plus years after Benghazi they’re still fighting tooth and nail to hide the truth. They can’t hid it forever.
