In 2007, when Harper’s went public with rumors of an alleged lesbian affair between Hillary Clinton and her “body man” Huma Abedin, the MSM was quick to slough it off as an extension of the vast right wing conspiracy that lives in Hillary’s frontal lobes.
But affair, or not, Huma Abedin’s presence gained currency in Hillary’s universe, faster than a year-old cattle futures selloff.
Well, it looks like at last Huma has gone the way of all high-level staff members who are implicated in their boss’s scandals; she has hired a lawyer, and she is striking back.
In other words, panicking…
A lawyer for Huma Abedin, a top adviser to Hillary Rodham Clinton, has accused Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, of damaging Ms. Abedin’s reputation through “unfounded allegations” about her time at the State Department.
The lawyer, Miguel Rodriguez, sent a letter to the State Department on Friday responding forcefully to two sets of questions posed by Mr. Grassley, Republican of Iowa: whether Ms. Abedin, while a department official, had been overpaid during her maternity leave and a vacation, and whether she had demonstrated a conflict of interest by aiding one of her part-time employers through her work at the State Department….
“These are but two examples of the unfortunate and unfounded allegations that have been made about Ms. Abedin,” Mr. Rodriguez wrote. “No staffer — indeed, nobody at all — should be subject to such unfounded attacks based on ill-informed leaks, much less someone who has made countless personal sacrifices in distinguished service to the country she loves.”
Notice how quickly Huma, second in command at Hillary 2016, is demoted to lowly staffer?
Of course, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is one thing. But what remains to be seen, as the FBI expands its investigation into Hillary’s State Department shenanigans, is whether or not Huma will flip and jump on the train before it leaves the station.
Ah, love is full of unbefitting strains…
