Hillary Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, a woman who has been at her side for over 20 years, suffered an emotional breakdown outside of campaign headquarters, weeping openly on the streets of Brooklyn.
Perhaps it was the heartache of a failed presidential bid for her close friend, or perhaps it was the stress of an investigation into her husband’s alleged online sexual relationship with an under aged girl.
Or perhaps it was the fact that her perverted husband may have actually led to the failed presidential bid that gave Huma a case of the sads.
Either way, Abedin was distraught, with some suggesting she had suffered a breakdown.
Via the Daily Mail:
Hillary Clinton’s closest aide Huma Abedin wept openly in the street on Friday as she returned to the place where the Democratic candidate’s campaign was fought – and lost.
Abedin looked like she had the weight of the world on her shoulders as she visited the campaign headquarters of the failed presidential candidate – after her own stumbles and her husband’s sexting habits helped contribute to Clinton’s historic defeat.
Abedin ventured out of her Manhattan apartment and went to the office three days after President-elect Donald Trump shocked the world by defeating Clinton.
She approached the tall building with stunning views which had until Tuesday been filled with staff an volunteers carrying a bag and a purse.
The pain and emotion of the situation were clearly visible on the face of the long-time loyalist, despite the dark large-frame sunglasses that covered her eyes.
Evidence suggests that the discovery of new Clinton emails between her and Abedin on Weiner’s computer, and the subsequent, albeit temporary, re-opening of the investigation into Hillary’s scandal, may have played a key role in the downfall of her presidential bid against Donald Trump.
According to the Hill, campaign chair John Podesta believes it was FBI Director James Comey “who we think may have cost us the election.”
The implication is clear – had Weiner’s actions and the discovery of evidence involving Abedin and Clinton never come to light just 11 days outside of the election, his candidate would not have lost.
In some sense, Abedin must feel at least partially responsible for Clinton’s defeat. She has no one to blame but herself – your husband is a serial ‘sextual’ predator, you yourself used an illegal email server, and your candidate made classified material vulnerable to hacking.
Not exactly a triumvirate of law-abiding citizens right there.
