Approved Abedin’s special status

Makes Statement

Documents obtained by Judical Watch say that despite denials, Clinton approved paperwork that changed her top aide Huma Abedin’s job status to “special government employee” — a classification that allowed Abedin to work for an outside consulting firm and the Clinton Foundation at the same time she was advising Clinton at State. The Clinton Campaign says the document wasn’t the actual approval of the SGE status but only approved the title change that came with Abedin’s transition. Abedin’s lawyers have maintained that she did nothing wrong, noting that government workers have moved to SGE status before.  Clinton, in an interview with MSNBC on Sept. 4, said she “was not directly involved” with Abedin’s job arrangement.

Reporter: Do you think [Donald Trump] had a point in raising the question of whether it was appropriate for her to be taking a State Department salary and also be paid by an outside company closely associated with your husband, by you?
Clinton: Well, I was not directly involved in that, but everything that she did was approved under the rules as they existed by the State Department.

Calls Weiner ‘worst deviant in U.S.’

Makes Statement

Trump claims Abedin has access to Clinton’s emails and that her husband, Weiner, is a deviant.

So think of this – Hillary is giving confidential, top-of-the-line secrets to Huma, who has all her information. Because everything goes through Huma – she has everything – who’s telling her husband, who’s a deviant and now works for a public relations firm…The person seeing her [Clinton’s] emails more than anybody else is Huma. And who’s Huma married to? The worst deviant in the United States of America, right? Weiner!

General Petraeus, his life has been destroyed over a tiny fraction of what she [Clinton] did. He didn’t burn his hard drive. He didn’t get rid of the emails. He told somebody about it, but he didn’t get rid of them. It’s criminal! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. It’s criminal!
