Hillary Clinton’s most loyal aide Huma Abedin dropped a major bombshell in her deposition last week to lawyers with Judicial Watch concerning her boss’ emails.
Abedin told lawyers that while head of the State Department, Clinton often times destroyed her schedules, a revelation that could put the Democratic presidential nominee in a bind with an FBI investigation into her emails, according to the New York Post.
“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,” Abedin told lawyers representing Judicial Watch, the conservative organization behind the emails lawsuit.
Abedin made the surprising admission in response to a question about document destruction at the Department of State. A lawyer for Judicial Watch asked: “And during your tenure at the State Department, were you aware of your obligation not to delete federal records or destroy federal records?”
Abedin admitted that Clinton used so-called “burn bags” in order to destroy her schedules, which are public records, is the first time any Clinton aide has admitted to the direct destruction of public records, the Post reported.
Last week, Abedin admitted in the same deposition that because of Clinton’s private email server, she often did not receive emails and therefore “she wasn’t able to do her job, do what she needed to do.”
Abedin said she was annoyed with the fact that she wasn’t getting Clinton’s messages but Clinton wasn’t fond of talking about the issue, according to Abedin.
Needless to say, Twitter is roaring from the discovery:

Will the FBI conclude that there’s insufficient evidence against Hillary because she destroyed the evidence?
