Newly released emails discovered by Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch seem to prove that Hillary’s right-hand aide, Huma Abedin, did have illegal access to classified information.
A press release by Judicial Watch states that Abedin used “a non-secure account and server to transmit classified information,” according to the Washington Examiner.
According to a statement released by Judicial Watch, the new release shows there were a total of 530 emails that were not a part of the batch Hillary Clinton turned over to the State Department that she claimed represented all her emails from the Clinton.com account maintained by an unsecure, private server.
Judicial Watch notes that some of the emails discovered among Abedin’s account were marked classified.
Abedin did not have legal security clearance to have those messages.
The group also says that the emails show that Hillary used her position to trade favors.
The watchdog group also said several emails in the newly released batch show Clinton using her official position as secretary of state to trade favors and to provide influence to donors to the Clinton campaign and donors to the Clinton Foundation.
For example, emails from April 2009 show a Puerto Rican TV executive named Miguel Lausell making a request that started with Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band, but was then moved over to Abedin. Lausell was pushing for his preferred candidate to become U.S. Ambassador to the Dominican Republic, and was reportedly a donor to both the Clinton presidential center and the Clinton Global Initiative.
“Pay to play, classified information mishandling, influence peddling, cover ups – these new emails show why the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s conduct must be resumed,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a press release. “The Trump Justice Department and FBI need to reassure the American people they have finally stopped providing political protection to Hillary Clinton.”
Sadly, so far no one in the Trump administration has bothered to pick up the investigation into Hillary’s illegal actions and lawbreaking as Obama’s Secretary of State.
Of course, the president has tried to urge U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to re-start the stalled investigation into Hillary’s crimes.
Indeed, Trump slammed Sessions in a tweet saying, “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!”
So far, though Sessions has refused to bother with any such investigation.
