Clinton’s marketing team sure is working again. In order to promote her upcoming book, they release snippets from it on a daily basis. Like a dripping water tap that keeps you up at night.
Further revelations from Hillary Clinton’s new book, What Happened (well, we all know what happened), paint a bleak picture of the state of mind of her personnel during the sometimes rocky events of her campaign.
The longtime aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Ms. Huma Abedin, is quoted often in the book with regards to the sexting scandal of her husband, Anthony Weiner.
When finding out at the time that her estranged sext-addicted husband was the reason that the FBI had reopened the case into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, Abedin stormed into her boss’s office and could not contain her tears. The former Secretary of State, 69, describes the conversation with her right-hand woman, 41, as follows. Abedin said: “This man will be the death of me!” and then, according to Clinton’s memory, burst into tears.
Clinton writes that she tried to help her aide:“ Anthony has already caused so much heartache. And now this.”
As you remember, the FBI had discovered emails from Hillary on Anthony Weiner’s laptop after it was confiscated as they investigated his conversations with an underage girl.
This year, Weiner pleaded guilty to sending creepy texts to a girl in North Carolina only 15 years of age. Abedin finally filed for divorce that month. She realized this was affecting everything she did. Anthony Weiner will be sentenced next month.
The former candidate for New York mayor declared that “I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse
Meanwhile, Hillary chose not to distance herself from Abedin after the scandal broke. (Given the lengthy working relationship of the two, one can only wonder why. Which secrets does Abedin know of?)
To explain this, Clinton wrote in her book: “She had done nothing wrong and was an invaluable member of my team. I stuck by her the same way she has always stuck by me.”
The damage was however already done, and in November of that year, in part due to all the looming scandals hanging over her, Hillary Clinton lost out to Donald Trump for the presidential election.
