Huma Abedin faces questions about dual jobs
FOXNews ^ | July 26, 2013 | Doug McKelway

Posted on 07/26/2013 5:22:01 AM PDT by maggief

EXCERPT

On June 13, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote her and Secretary of State John Kerry asking why Abedin, the deputy chief of staff at the State Department under former Secretary Hillary Clinton, was granted status as a "special government employee" after the birth of her son.

That title allowed her to work from home as a part-time consultant to State, earning $135,000 as a government employee -- while also earning $355,000 as a consultant for Teneo, where former President Bill Clinton is a board member.

It is because as an agent of Islam, she knows the real dirt on Hillary Clinton, and likely all the down-low, ridin’ low dirt on Bill Clinton. All derived from Hillary/Huma pillow talk.

I am getting so tired of all these people getting rich on our dime. I don’t know about you guys, but I have to work really hard for my dimes and I’m working well after I should have retired so they can live in luxury.

Anthony Weiner and wife move into $3.3M Manhattan apt.
Sweet Weiner deal

August 13, 2012

After quitting his Queens House seat amid a notorious sexting scandal, Weiner and beautiful, brainy spouse Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, landed in the sprawling, 12th-floor Park Avenue trophy residence owned by Rosen Partners LLC, which is headed by close Clinton pal Jack Rosen, records show.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/05/huma-abedin-consultant-state-91503.html

Abedin, a fixture at the Clintons’ side for at least 15 years — from Iowa to Indonesia — shifted to her new role after maternity leave in the early summer of 2012, according to a source familiar with the arrangement.

The new status made her a “special government employee,” which was tantamount to being a consultant, according to the source, whose information was confirmed by two other staffers familiar with the matter. Multiple sources told POLITICO Abedin did work for other clients, which a friend of Abedin said totaled four, including the State Department, Hillary Clinton, the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation and Teneo, the firm co-founded by former Bill Clinton counselor Doug Band.

Wiki:
Involvement in Politics

Bill Clinton was a paid adviser to Teneo, along with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Clinton ended his relationship with Teneo on February 2012.[18]

During the latter half of 2012, Huma Abedin was working as a paid consultant for Teneo while also working as special government employee for U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.[19]
Client List

Teneo’s clients include Fortune 500 companies, philanthropies, governments, and high net worth individuals. [20]

Coca Cola
MF Global (prior to its bankruptcy in 2011) [21]

No need to wonder why people like the Obamas and Clintons are such ardent believers in Big Government - its the road to riches beyond a mediocre achiever’s wildest dreams.

no wonder she “dresses well”

almost $500K (and a mulitmillion dollar apartment owned by a FOB) steered to her by Hillary clinton for doing NOTHING (?)

a highly paid “executive consultant”? She can’t even defend her beloved husband the pervert without reading from notes because she’s too “nervous” to speak

“I am getting so tired of all these people getting rich on our dime.”

Actually due to inflation and greed, it is no longer a dime. Seriously, this is a major problem in our government and why I have come to the opinion the entire executive and legislative branches need to be replaced with new people. There is almost not a member of either body who does not have a relative serving on some board, body, or office somewhere else in government...in otherwords nepotism or out right interest conflicts if their family member is a lobbyist. The only exceptions of course are the families with uber millions who deign to serve the public kind of like a house of Lords. I am more than tired of it.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/17/nyregion/weiners-wife-huma-abedin-failed-to-disclose-consulting-work-done-while-a-state-dept-aide.html?_r=0

Officials in the State Department and Clinton circles seem especially sensitive about the arrangement, and no one would speak about it on the record. Earlier this month, Mr. Weiner released a copy of the couple’s 2012 tax return showing that they had income of more than $490,000.

But when pressed on the matter, Mr. Weiner declined to discuss what, if any, income Ms. Abedin derived from work done outside the State Department.

An associate of Ms. Abedin’s said on Thursday that the arrangement allowed her to work from her home in New York, rather than at the State Department’s headquarters in Washington, and to spend more time with her child and husband. She earned approximately $135,000 from the department during 2012.

It is not clear how much Ms. Abedin was paid by Mrs. Clinton privately, or from the Clinton Foundation and Teneo. The Clintons have described Ms. Abedin as a surrogate daughter to them.

"beautiful, brainy spouse Huma Abedin"

"beatiful" = only to a democrat or a horse.

"brainy" = how brainy does one have to be to marry a 48 year old sexual pervert with a freakish adolescent obsession with his weiner?

How about her answering questions about her association to the Muslim Brotherhood..

Let this sink in for just a moment. The journal Huma worked for – which promotes Islamic supremacism and was founded by al-Qaida financer Naseef, who also headed the Muslim World League, a leading Muslim Brotherhood organization – is called the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. It was edited first by Huma’s father, Syed Abedin, and now by her mother, Saleha Abedin. Saleha is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood. Mother Abedin also directs an organization (the International Islamic Committee for Woman and Child) that comes under the umbrella of the Union for Good, another U.S.-designated terrorist organization. As McCarthy reminds us, “the Union for Good is led by Sheikh Yusef al-Qaradawi, the notorious Muslim Brotherhood jurist who has issued fatwas calling for the killing of American military and support personnel in Iraq as well as suicide bombings in Israel.”

Given these alarming professional and family associations, it is hard to imagine how Huma Abedin ever received the security clearance necessary to work closely with the secretary of state. But she did, and from her powerful post, she undoubtedly exerted influence over U.S. policy-making. (In his National Review piece, McCarthy lists specific actions that bespeak a shift in U.S. foreign policy to favor the Muslim Brotherhood.)

I thought is was going to be questions about “dual loyalty,” but Bachmann was excoriated over her comments on the issue on Huma’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Huma Unmentionables

… What a racket. The marriage to Huma Abedin, a Clinton insider, enables Anthony Weiner to resurrect a debased career and deflect attention from his psychotic antics even as he continues them. The marriage to Anthony Weiner, a prominent Jewish progressive, enables Huma Abedin to deflect attention from her associations with various Islamic supremacists even as, during her tenure as a top State Department official, American policy embraces Islamic supremacists.

But let’s not discuss that.
