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.

Five month’s emails missing

Makes Statement

Judicial Watch President Fitton says mails sent by Clinton and received from her on a private server are missing over periods totaling five months, beginning when she took office as secretary of state in February 2009. Fittons suggests Clinton lied under oath when she said all her emails had been turned over and it suggested government officials had not turned over everything they were required to deliver. Fitton says other State Department officials, including the one in charge of email production, Patrick Kennedy, previously had been informed of the five-month gap.
