Hillary Clinton’s top aide just dropped a bomb on her boss, which could spell even more trouble for Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. In addition to destroying emails, Clinton apparently enjoys destroying other things, which can be classified as government property.
Abedin revealed during a recent deposition that Clinton would regularly burn her daily schedules, which is considered to be destruction of government records. This top aid’s testimony is particularly relevant, considering that Clinton has recently been accused of meeting with Clinton Foundation donors, where she then tried to keep those meetings hidden from the public.
Abedin’s statement came during a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that was filed by Judicial Watch, where they were seeking to get a copy of Clinton’s full schedule while she worked at the State Department.
“And during your tenure at the State Department, were you aware of your obligation not to delete federal records or destroy federal records?” Abedin was asked.
That’s when Clinton’s aide revealed that Clinton would purposefully destroy her daily schedule, by putting it in a burn bag, which is a container that houses sensitive documents which are then later destroyed.
“If there was a schedule that was created that was her secretary of state daily schedule and a copy of that was then put in the burn bag, that … that certainly happened on … on more than one occasion,” Abedin said.
The issue with the burn bag is that Clinton’s schedules came from a state.gov address, which is destruction of records that violates federal law.
State Department diplomat Richard Grenell said that Clinton’s destruction of government property by burning her daily schedule was unprecedented:
“I’ve never seen anyone put their schedule in the burn bag — because every one of them had aemail address and therefore their daily schedules became public records, as required by law,” Grenell said.
I’m sure Hillary is laughing her ass off because she knows that she can keep on violating Federal Law without any chance of reaping the repercussions from it. If you think her antics are bad now, just wait until she is president of the United States!
