As Secretary of State # 3 leader of the USA w/ Independent E- mail Server's as Communication = Benedict Arnold

IG to review ‘special’ program that let Clinton aide Huma Abedin have 2 jobs
Published April 10, 2015FoxNews.com

Sept. 20, 2011: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton talks with her deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, during the Open Government Partnership event in New York. (Reuters)

The State Department inspector general plans to review a controversial program that allowed a longtime Hillary Clinton aide to work for a private firm at the same time she was working for the former secretary of state.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who originally sought a probe of Huma Abedin’s job status citing conflict of interest concerns, revealed the development on Friday – releasing a letter from Inspector General Steve Linick confirming the review.

Grassley’s questions centered on how Abedin was allowed to work as a top assistant to then-Secretary of State Clinton under a special, part-time status while also being employed at a politically connected consulting firm.

She was able to do so under a status known as “Special Government Employee.”

Linick said in his letter that his office “intends to examine the Department’s SGE program to determine if it conforms to applicable legal and policy requirements, including whether or not the program, as implemented, includes safeguards against conflicts of interest.”

The decision comes as the IG also looks at department email practices, following the revelation that Clinton exclusively used personal email, on a private server, while secretary of state. That controversy prompted Grassley, last month, to revive his long-running concerns about Abedin – questioning whether her emails would even be accessible to those looking into her records, as she reportedly was on Clinton’s server.

Grassley hailed the IG’s decision to start looking into the SGE program.

“This program is meant to be used in a limited way to give the government special expertise it can’t get otherwise,” Grassley said in a statement on Friday. “An inspector general review is necessary. Available information suggests that in at least one case, the State Department gave the special status for employee convenience, not public benefit.”


Abedin is married to former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, who resigned after a sexting scandal.

Grassley’s inquiries on the SGE status started in 2013, when he requested all communications between Abedin, after she switched from a full-time deputy chief of staff for Clinton to a part-timer, then started working for Teneo, a consulting firm that says it “brings together the disciplines of government and public affairs.”

“A number of conflict-of-interest concerns arise when a government employee is simultaneously being paid by a private company,” Grassley said in a March 19 letter to Secretary of State John Kerry that also raised concerns about Abedin and other department employees appearing to have been “improperly categorized” as SGEs.

Grassley said at the time the department’s answers so far were “largely unresponsive” and pointed to a November 2014 response that in part states “an individual may receive an SGE designation if he or she is joining the department from the private sector or is coming from another government position.”

However, Abedin came neither from the private sector nor another government position, Grassley argued.

Grassley also said the purpose of the SGE program is to help the government get temporary services from people with special knowledge and skills whose principal employment is outside the government.

A July 2013 letter from the department to Grassley said Abedin worked full-time from January 2009 to June 2012.

The State Department says Abedin was then an SGE until February 2013, essentially doing the same job that she did as a full-time employee, advising on Clinton’s schedule and travel. It also states she reviewed department ethics guidelines but was allowed to work part-time without a new security clearance.

Greyeagle, times are changing! Nothing will come of this. What difference does it make? Hillary and all the other politicians simply do what they want, sign whatever bill they want and no one stops them. Every once in a while their plans get thwarted but if 90% make it through then they have succeeded. We are too busy with our own lives to get too involved with politics and when we do our attention span is much too short to carry on when we make small advances and the politicians get 90% of what they want. Point, Odumbo is not qualified to be president but no one stopped that mistake or even questioned it when it occured and there was no way to change it after it occured. Another is Hillery is going to run for president even with all the bagage she carries with her. She is not qualified to run for dog catcher, but many idolize her as an example of what women can do.

It was pointed out the difference between the US and Mexico with the similarities we have in our constitutions. The reason Mexico’s government is so corrupt is that years ago they simply began ignoring the rules their constitution spelled out. We are heading down the same road and our Guberment will be right beside Mexico’s in the very short future. The amazing thing here is that our current and biggest offender is Odumbo, and he is supposed to be a constitutional scholar.

It was also pointed out that Nixon would not have been considered a crook in today’s standards. Today Nixon would have responded, what is the defination of a crook?

Like I said, times are changing and not for the better! You have seen the top of the mountain!!!

Greyeagle, you had better watch what you type here or you will be the lead into the internment camps

They tried that with Clinton, and see how far it went! Again times have changed for the worse. We are adrift and taking on water and the end is inevitable

Another way I put is is the 'toilet bowl flush' We are sitting in a world of $hit and the flush has occured. We have seen the rise in society and now we are swirling around heading for the cess pool. Hold on, because as we get moving faster-faster it will be a bumpy ride heading down to the eventual destination.

It already stinks
