Longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin said that at least some of Clinton’s official schedules were destroyed while she was secretary of state during her recent deposition, according to the New York Post.
Abedin made the admission during her deposition in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Abedin was asked by a lawyer for Judicial Watch, “And during your tenure at the State Department, were you aware of your obligation not to delete federal records or destroy federal records?”
Abedin replied, “If there was a schedule that was created that was her Secretary of State daily schedule, and a copy of that was then put in the burn bag, that… that certainly happened on… on more than one occasion.”
Clinton has said that she destroyed “private personal emails” while she was secretary of state, but according to the Post, “Abedin’s admission that she used so-called ‘burn bags’ — a container that material is placed in before it is destroyed — for some of her schedules is the first time anyone close to her has disclosed destroying public records.”
Clinton herself could be deposed at some point during Judicial Watch’s lawsuit. (The Blaze)
Maybe she’ll break the record for “I Take the 5th” 🙂
Also Yesterday was the Fourth of July, which means that obviously people on the left are going to try to bring everyone’s happiness down a notch. Case in point: one of the top trending hashtags on Monday was #AmericaWasNeverGreat as people tweeted all of the things they don’t like about America. According to some, the U.S. is a genocidal monster of a nation hell-bent on keeping everyone down.
It’s truly a disgusting display of ignorance, greed, narcissism,and just plain old hatred to say that America was never great. Every country has things in its history that they are not proud of–this does not mean the nation as a whole is completely void of greatness. (And even Hillary Clinton thinks that America is already great.) People have been risking everything to come to the U.S. since the nation was founded–they wouldn’t do that if this country wasn’t a better opportunity than their homelands. I would much rather live in the U.S. than any other nation on earth. Americans shouldn’t feel ashamed for celebrating the nation’s birthday.
I’ll defer to Ben Shapiro and Julie Borowski, who had the best comebacks to all of this:
#AmericaWasNeverGreat only if you ignore all of world history.
Hey #AmericaWasNeverGreat people: Check your American privilege.
White folks who keep telling me to leave for saying
#AmericaWasNeverGreat, give me & my people #Reparations & a plane ticket and we out.
I hear North Korea is great this time of year…
