Hillary Clinton Aide Exposed State Department Travel Schedules On Unsecure Private Network

Hillary Clinton’s right-hand aide Huma Abedin exposed the travel schedules and locations of top State Department staffers — including Clinton herself — on Clinton’s unsecure private email network.

Abedin used her clintonemail.com server – a non-secure server that shared an email network with Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation staff – to discuss specifics about the hotel room accommodations and travel details of Clinton and other State Department officials, sometimes well in advance of the trips in question, according to new records obtained by Judicial Watch.

Abedin’s conversations raise further national security concerns in the wake of revelations that Clinton discussed Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens’ location on email. Stevens was later murdered by terrorists who knew about a secret annex in the Benghazi consulate.

“The Sheraton hosted the Secretary in July 2010 and October 2010 and much of the hotel staff remains, so they know the drill The July 2010 visit S stayed in the Imperial Suite (shown in attachment and the suite available for this visit);” the State Department’s Tulinabo S. Mushingi wrote to Abedin in June 2012 in advance of a trip to Hanoi, Vietnam. “The Imperial suite is spacious and very bright and airy, with lake views. It has a large bathroom with Jacuzzi style tub and walk in shower.”

Abedin eventually picked the Sheraton in that case after Mushingi noted that a competing hotel’s bathroom was not up to the same standard as the Sheraton’s.

“Hotel in Geneva is same as last visit: Intercon – they have rooms,” a colleague wrote to Abedin in June 2012, to which Abedin replied, “I know we probably have no other options, right?”

Abedin repeatedly discussed Clinton’s exact location, as when she revealed that she and Clinton were on the way to the airport in Scandinavia on May 31, 2012. Or revealing that she was on a “packed train” with Clinton on June 25, 2012 because shuttles were canceled.
