Huma Abedinís job arrangement under Hillary investigated by State Dept. IG
Washington Times ^ | 04/14/2015 | Stephen Dinan

The State Department’s inspector general has agreed to investigate the program that allowed former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton to hire one of her key advisors, Huma Abedin, for government work even as she was also employed by a private firm, a senator revealed Friday.

Inspector General Steve A. Linick also said he wasn’t aware of Mrs. Clinton’s or Ms. Abedin’s use of a non-government email account to conduct official business, and said that’s generally been frowned upon at the department. He pointed to a 2012 report that instructed an embassy to stop using a commercial email system as evidence.

And Mr. Linick said he is looking into whether those employed as Special Government Employees — the designation Mrs. Clinton gave to Ms. Abedin — are following the law, and avoiding conflicts of interest.

“The OIG intends to examine the department’s SGE program to determine if it confirms to applicable legal and policy requirements,” Mr. Linick said in response to a request from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican.

Mrs. Clinton approved hiring Ms. Abedin, her long-time assistant, as an SGE, which allowed her to collect a government salary while also continuing to work for Teneo, a private firm. Mr. Grassley said there the usual conflict-of-interest questions in an arrangement like this are only heightened by the report that Ms. Abedin used the same non-official email server Mrs. Clinton set up for herself.

Mr. Grassley also questioned whether Ms. Abedin was qualified to be designated an SGE, saying that privilege is supposed to be used to entice someone in the private sector to split his or her time, in order for the government to tap someone’s “special knowledge and skills.”

There will come a day when Historians agree Huma Abedein was a Muslim Brotherhood spy.

I’m sure they will conclude that no wrongdoing occurred.

I’m just guessing if Huma ever had to call Stanley Steemer.

Ms. Abedin worked for many years at a journal that promotes Islamic-supremacist ideology that was founded by a top al-Qaeda financier, Abdullah Omar Naseef. Naseef ran the Rabita Trust, a formally designated foreign terrorist organization under American law. Ms. Abedin and Naseef overlapped at the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA) for at least seven years. Throughout that time (1996–2003), Ms. Abdein worked for Hillary Clinton in various capacities.

It’s a b*tch when the Muslim Brotherhood is bankrolling your foreign policy. Literally. They even tried to buy the release of the Blind Sheik with that failed ‘Ambassador Stevens taken hostage’ plot.

Oh great. Now when anybody asks about the hiring of Huma Abedin, “it can’t be talked about because an investigation is currently underway”. Team Zero pulls this stunt A LOT.

Huma Abedin’s job arrangement under Hillary investigated by State Dept. IG

It makes NO DIFFERENCE what they find or discover.

In the end NOTHING will be done to anyone.

This Kabuki theater presentation will continue uninterrupted.

I don’t pay any attention to BS government ‘investigations’ unless they end with someone going to jail.

FR has been taken over by Hillary shills who scream “nothing will change” on every thread that discusses changes happening right in front of everyone’s eyes.

Gotta laugh, because if nothing’s really ever going to happen, there’s really no need to pound on that concept over and over again.

But on the other hand, if something is indeed happening, then Hillary would want to spend some money hiring worms to squeak “hopeless, hopeless” on every thread.

I mean remember, it’s Hillary we’re talking about. She considers subtlety to be writing the word “subtlety” on a brick and throwing it through a window. So its not hard to figure out what she’s doing on FR.

Hillary has to win the Presidency to stay out of jail. She has to win so Obama stays out of jail, too.
