Wikileaks: Huma Abedin tried to convince Hillary Clinton to use a government email address
During her tenure as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apparently had a problem with her emails going into spam folders at the State Department due to her use of a private email server. Hillary Clinton has told us that she used a private email server for convenience but having her emails caught in spam folders does not seem all that convenient–or efficient for that matter–to me.
It seems to me that in matters of national security any delay in the State Department receiving emails from the head of the department would be a major concern, possibly even of life and death. Especially in cases such as, oh I don’t know, maybe Benghazi…
Wikileaks is now showing us that this was such a problem that Hillary Clinton’s right hand girl, Huma Abedin, tried to convince the former Secretary of State to break down and use a government email address. Here is more:
On November 13, 2010 Clinton griped to her personal aide Huma Abedin that a message she had sent wasn’t being received.
“This is not a good system,” she said, expressing frustration.
“We should talk about putting you on state email or releasing your email address to the department so you are not going to spam,” Abedin replied. “It’s not the phone message system, it’s the device delay.”
So, Hillary Clinton knew this was not a good system and complained to Huma Abedin who then gave her the solution to the problem but apparently for some reason (and we know why that is) the former Secretary of State was dead set against using a government email address and did not take the advice of her most trusted aide.
But did you notice the second part of Huma Abedin’s solution where she advised the former Secretary of State to release her personal email address to the State Department? Admittedly I do not know what this means but it sounds as if Hillary Clinton was somehow blocking the State Department from seeing her email address and that would lead us to the obvious question of why?
