Huma Abedin’s Key Clinton Email Claim Contradicted by Former Aide

Epoch Times: WASHINGTON—Former aide Justin Cooper said in a Judicial Watchdeposition created on March 19 and made public on June 18 that he worked with Huma Abedin in 2009 to set up the unsecured private email account used by the former secretary of state to conduct official U.S. diplomatic business.

Cooper’s statement contradicts Abedin’s claim in a 2016 deposition by the non-profit government watchdog that she only learned about the private email setup in 2015 by “reading in some news articles about a year, a year-and-a-half ago, when it was—it was being publicly discussed.”

Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides, was deputy chief of staff throughout Clinton’s tenure as the United States’ chief diplomat and continued with her during the Democratic candidate’s unsuccessful presidential campaign in 2016.

Asked if the Cooper deposition represents additional legal problems for Abedin, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told The Epoch Times on June 18 that “the legal liabilities never went away, so it’s a matter of political will by the Justice Department. … The leadership is going to have to step up to move forward on any of this.”

Cooper, who was an adviser to President Bill Clinton, also said that a week before his deposition, he spoke with Cheryl Mills, the attorney who served as Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department and represented her legally during the FBI’s investigation of the email server. Mills accompanied Hillary Clinton when she was interviewed by the FBI. more here

  1. Inconstant statements to the FBI eh? I recall that is what Scooter Libby went to prison for; would that the double standard was eliminated.

  2. Slowly and steadily, more and more sunshine is exposing the corruption in dark places.

    Maybe a 2nd Trump term is when all Sheol (KJV) will break loose??? Trump definitely knows how to play the long game.

  3. I said it here earlier this week, but if the FBI and DOJ extend the PRIVILEGE of immunity to a witness but the witness is found later to have lied or been unccoperative, can’t their immunity deal be revoked?

    I can think of at least several people who need their immunity stripped from their lying hides: Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, Brian Pagliano. I’m sure there are additional scum that deserve to be on that list as well.

  4. “she only learned about the private email setup in 2015 by “reading in some news articles”. Right out of the Obama strategies book.
    I guess she forgot the play from Hillary’s strategies book. “I’m sorry I don’t recall.”

  5. I see the NY prosecutor reversed his decision to ship Manifort to Rykers Island when the assist. AG from the DoJ said his was monitoring the situation.
