Hillary Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin have found themselves in the news once again in 2018 as they appear to be closer to prison than ever.
Freedom Daily reported that at the start of the new year, the State Department released a ton of emails discovered on the laptop of Abedin’s estranged husband and convicted pedophile Anthony Weiner near the end of the 2016 presidential campaign. These are the same emails that led to former FBI Director James Comey reopening an investigation into Clinton that ended right before the November election.
At the time, Clinton and her team claimed that these emails were nothing, and it was just a ploy by conservatives to sway the election, but the newly released emails show that this could not be further from the truth. President Donald Trump himself took to Twitter last week to say that Abedin should be in jail for using her personal, unsecured Yahoo email to forward highly sensitive State Department emails that included passwords to government systems.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others,” Trump wrote.

It turns out that when Clinton was Secretary of State, her top aide Abedin would often forward highly sensitive government emails to her unsecured server to print out these documents which fell prey to hackers from 2014-2016. This blatant breach of protocol would get any of us normal folks thrown behind bars, but since Abedin is a Clinton crony, she has been able to remain free.
However, this all may change after the emails found on Weiner’s computer caught Abedin in a major lie. The emails show that she backed up copies of her emails with Clinton, and then lied to the FBI and in court that she did not preserve the conversations. Abedin told the FBI that she “lost most of her old emails as a result of the transition” from the State Department.
“She had only accessed clintonemail.com through a web portal and did not have a method for archiving her old emails prior to the transition,” according to notes taken during an FBI interview with Abedin on April 5, 2016.
She doubled down on this lie in June of 2016 while testifying under oath.
“With respect to those State Department work-related emails on the Clintonemail.com accounts, what did you do, if anything, to preserve those emails?” asked an attorney with conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, according to a transcript of the deposition.
Abedin said she “did not do anything to preserve those emails.”
“The instances where it was Clinton email to Clinton email, there were instances where the content of those emails had personal matters in there, and there may have also been State Department matters in there, too. It was a – a combination. But I did not – I did not preserve those e-mails,” Abedin said.
