Huma Abedin admits Hillary destroyed State records
Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides, said in a recent deposition with Judicial Watch that the former secretary of State would sometimes destroy her daily schedules – an admission characterized by one former diplomat as shocking and rarely, if ever, done.
“If there was a schedule that was created that was her secretary of State daily schedule and a copy of that was then put in the burn bag, that … that certainly happened on … on more than one occasion,” Abedin said to lawyers for Judicial Watch, the nonprofit that’s taking the lead in suing over the Clinton email server scandal, the New York Post reported.
Abedin’s comments came in response to a question from the attorney that went like this: “And during your tenure at the State Department, were you aware of your obligation not to delete federal records or destroy federal records?”
Clinton’s previously admitted to destroying personal emails she characterized as private. But Abedin’s statement of her using “burn bags,” which is a specially constructed container to burn things, is new. And according to at least one former State Department officials, the admission is shocking.
