Skip to comments.Huma Abedin faces questions about dual jobs
Posted on 07/26/2013 5:22:01 AM PDT by maggief
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.
she was on the carpet...she must have felt right at home (with Hitlery)
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Teneos clients include Fortune 500 companies, philanthropies, governments, and high net worth individuals.

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.

THAT, my friends, is the face of a man who has sold his soul to Satan.
I hate to say this but that’s one ugly child.
Wealth Redistribution for the politically well connected.
It is standard procedure for politicians to use taxpayer money to take care of their friends and allies.
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 couples 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. Abedins said on Thursday that the arrangement allowed her to work from her home in New York, rather than at the State Departments 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.

More heat on Weiner over Jazeera cash
Well ......We now know how the payoff and how much the payoff?
Now to figure out : Why the payoff? What does she know the Hill/billy want to keep secret?
Why all the questions? Don’t they know somebody in that household has to pay for the campaign of a sexual pervert?
"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?
“...beautiful, brainy ... Huma Abedin ...”
Same way the press always describes Sarah Palin.
The MB connection?
Michele Bachmanns concerns about Huma Abedin vindicated by the New York Times?
John McCain defends Huma Abedin against accusations shes part of conspiracy
Wow - Anthony looks thrilled to be in THIS picture!
He looks so much happier in the pics he takes of himself.
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 Humas 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.)
Traitors all. Justice will find them.
I hate to say this but thats one ugly child...
Certainly an ugly little Wiener.
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.
Interesting how the payoffs? fall into the Arab Spring timeline.
How is Huma Abedin connected to Egypt’s new President?

In Huma’s case rug munching is a very lucrative business.
"What you mean she only has two jobs? Why that lazy lima bean."
Almost a half mill a year...not bad for someone capable of eating corn on the cob through a chain link fence.
No one pays attention to this..I wonder what these fool reporters will do when everything goes to hell here..do they think they will be left out of the murdering that will go on when these savages take complete control..
Actually, the pair look like brother and sister.
It’s nice to have connections. Huma and Anthony are another Bill and Hillary Special, like Al Sharpton.
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 lets not discuss that.
They look like a really creepy couple in pictures.
I was just thinking after seeing that picture is there are some women that really need to wear a burka.
Huma is truly a Muslim Princess wedded to an ex-jewish mensch.
that picture seriously looks photoshopped. THe heads look wrong. Is it just me?
Not photo shopped. Let’s be honest, they’re both freaky.
Reminds me of the punchline of an old sheepherder joke:
"We all do it, but did you have to pick the ugly one?"
which one the one in the stroller or the one pushing it?
