Hillary Clinton’s top aid may have a few other scandals soon to be exposed in her family. Besides Abedin’s husband, Anthony Weiner’s child-porn scandal, there are two other family members of hers under investigation for conspiracy, wire fraud and securities fraud.
Apparently, Abedin herself and the State Department where she formerly worked are mentioned in the case.
“Records show that her first cousin, Omar Amanat, is under federal indictment for cheating investors in Kit Digital Inc. of millions of dollars between 2009 and 2012, forcing the tech start-up to go bankrupt in 2013. He has been placed under house arrest as he awaits trial, which is scheduled for Oct. 2,” writes WND. “Another Abedin cousin, Irfan Amanat, is under indictment in the same case. He was arrested in December after returning to the U.S. from the United Arab Emirates.
Letters from Amanat’s attorneys revealed Abedin’s involvement. He apparently desperately tried to reach her while she was at the State Department.
“Omar once warned Huma while she was at the State Department that she and other family members were under threat of being “hurt” by “special collection agents” trying to recover stolen funds. Court exhibits reveal that Omar was worried about Huma’s safety and contacted the State Department to make her “aware of this incident,” writes WND.
How else was she involved?
“Huma helped Omar make KIT appear more valuable because of its association with the Alliance of Civilizations, which was approved by Hillary and funded in part by U.S. grants,” said an attorney familiar with the case. “This helped Omar raise money for KIT, which he and his brother misappropriated for other purposes. Approximately $6 million has vanished.”
Even though Amanat was being sued by other investors, he was still given special access to the government due to his cousin and his family’s massive donations to the Clinton Foundation.
The investigation into the Clinton Foundation for allegedly being a pay-for-play scheme is still open.“Judicial Watch and other government watchdog groups have charged that the Clinton Foundation was a pay-for-play operation that rewarded its benefactors with State Department favors,” writes WND.
Like Clinton, Omar tried to scrub his emails from his Yahoo account so they couldn’t be used as evidence.
“Omar Amanat emailed Irfan Amanat and requested his help to ‘delete all of my emails from the Yahoo site but download them onto my laptop,’” according to a December court filing. “Omar Amanat expressed ‘concern about them subpening Yahoo at some point.’”
Author’s note: Let’s be real, Abedin totally knew what her family members were up to. Perhaps she even helped them? Corruption and crime isn’t foreign to her, she is in Clinton’s camp after all.
