State Department Turning Over Huma ‘Double Dipping’ Documents Next Week

BY:

The State Department is planning to turn over documents related to Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s outside employment to a watchdog group next week, according to a court filing on Monday.

Judicial Watch sued the State Department earlier this year for records regarding Abedin’s position as a “special government employee” under Clinton.

Abedin was granted SGE status at the State Department—which allowed her to hold outside roles at the Clinton Foundation and private companies—from 2012 until early 2013.

The new documents could shed light on whether Abedin’s dual roles at the State Department and outside companies posed a conflict of interest.

A judge recently ordered the department to submit an estimate of how many documents it had found related to the request. The State Department said on Monday it found 51 pages of potentially responsive records and estimated that they would take a week to review.

The department said it planned to provide the records to Judicial Watch on Oct. 13. It turned over 48 related documents to the watchdog group last month.
