Huma blamed Weiner for not noticing overpayment
Huma Abedin, also known as Mrs. Anthony Weiner, is a close confidant and aide of Hillary Clinton.
Really close. Hillary’s minder, scheduler, gatekeeper, among other things.
And Huma apparently didn’t notice that the government paid her more than she was due, resulting in a federal embezzlement investigation.
The Washington Post reports, Feds investigated top Hillary Clinton aide for embezzlement:
Federal investigators formally investigated top Hillary Rodham Clinton aide Huma Abedin for the crime of embezzlement after confirming she took a “Babymoon” vacation and maternity time at the State Department without expending her formal leave, resulting in thousands of dollars of pay she wasn’t entitled to receive, The Washington Times has learned.
The probe also gathered evidence she filed time sheets charging the government for impermissible overtime and excessive hours after she converted from a full-time federal employee to a State Department contractor….
Ms. Abedin, who served as a deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton from 2009 to late 2012, told investigators she hadn’t noticed she had received a $33,000 lump sum payment — about a third of which investigators determined was improper — when she left the State Department.
She suggested her husband, the disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner, failed to let her know.
“My husband handles all the finances in our household,” she told investigators during a recorded interview in October 2014.
But, don’t fret about Huma. The feds cut her a break:
The FBI was first alerted that the IG was conducting a “criminal investigation” of Ms. Abedin in a memo dated Oct. 22, 2013, the records show.
After 15 months of extensive document-gathering and interviews, the IG submitted the case for review by the Justice Department public integrity division, which declined to prosecute Ms. Abedin. The “alleged violations” cited were improperly requesting and approving annual leave and “embezzlement,” the documents state.
“The case was not declined based on the merits of the investigation,” stated the final investigative report, dated Jan. 26.
Such a designation usually means federal prosecutors decided not to pursue a case, but only because they didn’t think it worth the resources, not because the facts and evidence couldn’t support a case.
Uh huh – Hillary didn't notice classified info in emails, and Huma didn't notice extra $30k in her bank acct http://t.co/lWjgMjOzq8
