Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

New Emails: Huma Discussed Sensitive Details on Open Lines

It’s called OpSec: Operational Security. During World War II, people said “Loose lips sink ships.”

The idea is very simple: deny adversaries access to all information that might help them, big things and small details. Make them work for whatever they can get, and stop them wherever you can. Don’t tell them in advance when and where the Secretary of State will be staying, giving them time to plan something, that sort of thing. This is basic security, the kind of stuff that comes with Security Clearances for Dummies.

Speaking of dummies, let’s welcome back Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

A new State Department dump of emails from Huma show she discussed sensitive travel plans on her personal email account, according to new records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.

Huma Abedin, Clinton’s former deputy chief of staff and present campaign staffer, made plans for Clinton and her aides from the account she had set up on Clinton’s private email server, documents obtained by nonprofit Judicial Watch show. For example, Abedin emailed colleagues that she was “on a packed train” but offered to discuss the details of a trip to Russia on a call anyway.

Another email shows Abedin used her private account to select a hotel for Clinton on an upcoming trip to Hanoi. Other records indicate Abedin, like others in Clinton’s email network, sent potentially sensitive information using the private server. In one instance, Abedin and other staff members discussed whether to accept an invitation to meet with the Iraqi foreign minister.

“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 Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. “Why would Ms. Abedin and Mrs. Clinton use this unsecure system to discuss foreign affairs and sensitive matters such as the Syria conflict?”

Judgment. It’s all about who you select to work for you, and the judgment they exercise. That’s how you pick the next president.
