Did Hillary aide Huma Abedin use her influence to provide favors to friends?

Huma AbedinIt seems the scandal machine known as the Clinton campaign may have another issue to contend with.

According to a report at the Washington Examiner, an IG report says Clinton aide Huma Abedin may have “delivered favors” for friends.

The Washington Examiner notes:

An investigation may have found evidence a top State Department aide to Hillary Clinton took advantage of government employment rules with potential conflicts of interest and overpayments.

In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry Thursday, Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said an inspector general probe suggested Huma Abedin leveraged her State Department job to benefit her two other employers at the time: the Clinton Foundation and a consulting firm called Teneo Strategies.

Teneo Strategies was founded by a longtime aide to Bill Clinton, Douglas Band, and boasted the former president as a paid board member when it first launched in 2011.

It gets worse:

Abedin allegedly sent or received more than 7,000 emails on her government account that involved Band, the letter said.

As an example of the potential conflicts of interest at play, Grassley cited an email exchange in which Band pressed Abedin to encourage her State Department boss, Hillary Clinton, to facilitate a White House appointment for one of his clients.

“How many more scandals can the Clinton campaign take?” asked a post at Progressives Today.

Good question.  Keep in mind that Clinton has been lying and scheming her way to the top for over 40 years and it hasn’t slowed her down one iota.  According to the latest Real Clear Politics average, Clinton is ahead of her rivals by over 35 percentage points.  Maybe being evil really is a resume-enhancer in the Democratic Party.
