Abedin Emails: Clinton ‘Often Confused’ at State Department


Hillary Clinton was "often confused" about elements of her job at the State Department, according to an email written by her close aide Huma Abedin and released by a watchdog group on Monday.

Judicial Watch obtained a number of Abedin’s work-related emails through a public records request and published over 35 pages of the correspondence on Monday.

The messages include details of Clinton’s finalized daily schedules—information that is often considered sensitive—sent to Abedin over an unclassified email server.

The email included the note: "The information contained in this email is not to be shared, forwarded or duplicated."

Another message showed Clinton Global Initiative official Doug Band forwarded a request for visa help to Abedin.

"Doug—Attached is an email from State. All requested information has been submitted. Can you-inquire as to status on my behalf?" wrote the individual, whose name was redacted, in the Oct. 2, 2011, email to Band.

Band replied that he could forward it to someone at the State Department but there was nothing he could do to speed up the visa process. He sent it to Abedin, although there is no evidence that the request had any impact on the visa request.
