Clinton Email States “She’s Often Confused”

Clinton Confused Huma Email

The Hill is reporting on line found in Huma Abedin’s email which is potentially very damaging:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was “often confused,” according to a 2013 email from her longtime aide Huma Abedin.

The comment, which is likely to attract attention from Clinton’s critics on the presidential campaign trail, was revealed on Monday following a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit from conservative legal group Judicial Watch.

In the Jan. 26, 2013, message, Abedin gave the note about Clinton while discussing the secretary’s schedule with another Clinton aide, Monica Hanley.

“Have you been going over calls with her for tomorrow?” Abedin asked Hanley. “So she knows [then-Indian Prime Minister Manmohan] singh is at 8?”

“She was in bed for a nap by the time I heard that she had an 8am call,” Hanley responded. “Will go over with her.”

“Very imp to do that,” Abedin said in response.

“She’s often confused.”

This was in email found by the conservative group Judicial Watch so I would be concerned about whether they might be cherry picking statements out of the email which they obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Conceivably other email might indicate that Clinton had difficulty keeping track of a busy schedule as opposed to generally being confused.

Unless there is further information favorable to Clinton, this release could be very damaging to her in the general election, raising questions both as to her competence and suggesting a reason why Clinton tried to use her private server to keep her email secret.

Judicial Watch also claims that the email containing a detailed itinerary of Clinton’s schedule for the day would be a security breach.
