It’s no wonder why Hillary Clinton has worked so hard to keep public scrutiny away from her emails; with even her best efforts to obstruct and conceal, it remains obvious that the former secretary of state was not only repeatedly violating national security protocols, but also willing to use her position as a means to network for her upcoming presidential bid.
While maintaining good relations with people is the cornerstone of good political networking, the accusations against Mrs. Clinton run far deeper than simply doing and receiving favors, but include allegations that she used her position to solicit funds from radicals and foreign nationals to amass a campaign war-chest, a clear violation of law and basic ethics.
On Monday, the world learned that top Clinton aide Huma Abedin stressed to others that Hillary’s mental faculties may have slipped as she warned that Clinton appears “often confused” when dealing with matters.
The same Judicial Watch investigation that yielded the evidence of Hillary’s reported mental decline also details how Abedin was used as a conduit by her mother to gain access to Clinton. Abedin’s mother, Saleha Abedin, a controversial Islamist activist, requested Clinton’s help in securing a favor for her boss. Saleha Abedin serves as dean at Dar al-Hekma University in Saudi Arabia and sought an invitation for the president of the college to a State Department “Women in Public Service” event, which also included remarks by Clinton.
While doing a favor for someone is not illegal and is, in fact, common practice, doing so for a committed radical Islamic zealot indicates an affiliation with our nation’s enemy at a time when we remain at war with radical Islam (whether the left wants to admit it or not).
Saleha Abedin maintains a façade of serving as a women’s rights advocate in the Middle East, but in reality, Abedin’s commitment remains to Shariah law over common decency.
Abedin is a co-founder of the Muslim Sisterhood, the female branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, and has voiced her disapproval of laws prohibiting female genital mutilation and legal age requirements for marriage, stating that such laws are “completely incompatible with Islamic law” and “crash the provisions of Islamic law,” respectively.
While the Secretary of State repeatedly denied requests for increased security from Libya by Ambassador Chris Stevens, Clinton was busy securing tickets to events for radical Muslims. She refused to issue a rescue order for the trapped diplomats in Benghazi and spent the following weeks and months fabricating and perpetuating a flimsy narrative about a YouTube video and now, the same woman who refused to cite radical Islam as our nation’s enemy, the “often confused” former secretary of state wishes to serve as our Commander-in-Chief.
