Via a FOIA request, Judicial Watch received and released Tuesday seventy pages of emails from long time Clinton aide, Huma Abedin’s account on the Hillary Clinton non-secured email system,clintonemail.com. The emails reveal that Ms Clinton, Ms Abedin, and Jake Sullivan (Ms. Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff) all used non-secure accounts to transfer classified information while Hillary was running the state department.
For example, two March 2011 emails from British PM Tony Blair (who used the name aclb) were forwarded from Clinton to Abedin asking her to print them out. Sullivan’s non secure personal email account was CCed on the Tony Blair mail was Jake Sullivan (to his non-secure personal account). Ms. Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff. Before the email was released to Judicial Watch it was redacted because it contained classified information. The codes on the top indicate that email was marked as being classified because it contained “Foreign government information” and “foreign relations or foreign activities of the US, including confidential sources.”
Another email shows that Clinton wanted to know how meetings in Washington, including a four-hour meeting concerning America’s war on Libya, would impact her Hampton vacation. Responding to an email that details the sensitive meetings in DC, Clinton emails Abedin on August 26, 2011, “Ok. What time would I get back to Hamptons?” Again, this email discussion takes place on non-state.gov email accounts. Travel of cabinet members, ambassadors, etc. is restricted information as it puts their lives in danger.
The documents also include addition contact/advice on Libya from long-time friend Sidney Blumenthal, who was not only banned from working at Foggy Bottom by Obama, but had business interests in Libya. Clinton wanted this Blumenthal email printed “without any identifiers,” indicating that she knew she shouldn’t be taking advice from Blumenthal and didn’t what people to know about it.
“These emails show that Hillary Clinton isn’t the only Obama official who should be worried about being prosecuted for mishandling classified information. Her former top State aides (and current campaign advisers) Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan should be in the dock, as well,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The Obama State Department has now confirmed that Clinton, Abedin, and Sullivan used unsecured, non-government email accounts to communicate information that should now be withheld from the American people ‘in the interest of national defense or foreign policy, and properly classified.’ When can we expect the indictments?”
At the very least these Huma Abedin emails prove once again that Hillary Clinton has been lying to the American people–not only did she keep and send classified information from her private server, but she knew damn well what she was doing.
