Judicial Watch on Monday released 50 pages of emails from Huma Abedin, a top aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, that the group says discuss possibly “sensitive security and foreign affairs issues.”
In the emails Abedin mentions specific times and locations where Clinton would be.
“The emails show Abedin used the non-secure clintonemail.com server to discuss sensitive travel and operations security information that could have placed the personal security of Clinton and other government officials at risk, such as real-time location information while traveling abroad, and other hotel and travel arrangements,” Judicial Watch wrote in a statement to the press.
On June 25, 2012 Abedin writes that she is willing to discuss Clinton’s travel details while on a “packed train,” Judicial Watch notes.
And before Clinton’s trip to Hanoi in July 2013, Abedin uses the Clinton server to say well in advance when the secretary will be staying at the Hanoi Sheraton.
Critics have said Clinton’s use of a private server for her official duties left her communications open to hacking attacks by foreign governments. Clinton has said she never sent of received information marked “classified” at the time, though some of her emails have been deemed to be so since then.
Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to get the emails from the server.
“These emails Judicial Watch forced out through a federal lawsuit show that Huma Abedin used her separate clintonemail.com account to conduct the most sensitive government business, endangering not only her safety but the safety of Hillary Clinton and countless others,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“And why would Ms. Abedin and Mrs. Clinton use this unsecure system to discuss foreign affairs and sensitive matters such as the Syria conflict? Hillary Clinton’s email games were a danger to the nation’s security.”
