For the first time since November 9, Hillary Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin were seen together in public. Abedin had a five hour meeting with Clinton before seeing off Clinton in a waiting car outside her Manhattan office. Based on their appearance, smiling and chatting amicably, there seemed to be no hard feelings between them.
The discovery of a thousands of Abedin’s emails, previously unknown to authorities, was discovered on husband Anthony Weiner’s computer not long before the election, forcing FBI Director James Comey to reopen the case of Mrs. Clinton’s private email server.
Of course, many Clinton supporters, staffers, and Bill Clinton himself have blamed the reopening of the investigation of the case as a key to Mrs. Clinton’s shocking loss to Republican Donald Trump on November 8, as opposed to blaming the conduct that caused the investigation or its reopening.
There have been rumors that many from team Clinton have not been happy with Abedin’s presence with Clinton in the wake of the election defeat.
One Clinton adviser told Vanity Fair recently: “Maybe I’m just pissed off, but I really don’t give a s*** about what happens to Huma Abedin to be honest with you.”
Team Clinton and Clinton supporters have not stopped blaming anyone and anything for the election defeat other than the candidate and her message, of course.
Mrs. Clinton, speaking on a conference call shortly after the defeat, told donors: “There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful.” She then pointed the finger at Comey, stating: “Our analysis is that Comey’s letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum.”
According to a local newspaper, Bill Clinton even told folks within a bookshop: “James Comey cost her the election.”
He would say that, wouldn’t he?
