Huma Abedin Lied to the FBI and Got Away With It

If we had anything faintly resembling an evenhanded justice system, Huma Abedin would be pleading guilty right about now. But of course we don't. And so a series of Trump associates are forced to plead guilty to lying to the FBI. While Hillary continues her Spite Across America tour. Did close Hillary associates like Cheryl Mills, Hillary's right-hand woman, and Huma Abedin lie to the FBI?

As evidence assembled by Chuck Ross at the Daily Caller suggests, it rather looks like it.

The FBI agent who was fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team for sending anti-Donald Trump text messages conducted the interviews with two Hillary Clinton aides accused of giving false statements about what they knew of the former secretary of state’s private email server.

Neither of the Clinton associates, Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, faced legal consequences for their misleading statements, which they made in interviews last year with former FBI section chief Peter Strzok

But another Strzok interview subject was not so lucky.

Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser, pleaded guilty last week to lying during an interview he gave on Jan. 24 to Strzok and another FBI agent. 

 Strzok was sending pro-Clinton and anti-Trump texts to the woman he was having an extramarital affair with. That woman worked for McCabe who had his own Clinton ties.

But undercutting those denials are email exchanges in which both Mills and Abedin either directly discussed or were involved in discussing Clinton’s server. 

“hrc email coming back — is server okay?” Mills asked in a Feb. 27, 2010 email to Abedin and Justin Cooper, a longtime aide to Bill Clinton who helped set up the Clinton server.

“Ur funny. We are on the same server,” Cooper replied.

And in a Jan. 9, 2011 email exchange, Cooper told Abedin that Clinton’s server had been malfunctioning because “someone was trying to hack us.”

“Had to shut down the server,” wrote Cooper, who told the FBI in his interviews that he discussed Clinton’s server with Abedin in 2009, when it was being set up.

Is that enough? It would have been more than enough if a Trump associate had said it. And that's the point.
