2013 e-mail from Huma Abedin: Hillary is "often confused"

Via the Weekly Standard, this would explain her insane “Wall Street donates to me because of 9/11” remark at the debate on Saturday night. As well as the totality of America’s Libya policy between 2011 and 2012.


In fairness to Hillary, she’s really, really old.

The Abedin email material contains a January 26, 2013, email exchange with Clinton aide Monica Hanley regarding Clinton’s schedule in which Abedin says Clinton is “often confused:”

Abedin: Have you been going over her calls with her? So she knows singh is at 8? [India Prime Minister Manmohan Singh]
Hanley: She was in bed for a nap by the time I heard that she had an 8am call. Will go over with her
Abedin: Very imp to do that. She’s often confused.

“Huma Abedin’s description of Hillary Clinton as ‘easily confused’ tells you all you need to know why it took a federal lawsuit to get these government emails from Clinton’s illegal email server ,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These emails also show that Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s decision to use the Clinton email server to conduct government business was dangerous and risky.”

Why might Hillary have been confused in late January 2013? Easy: Because of her concussion the month before. Remember? Sometime on or around December 9, 2012, according to her spokesman, she fainted at home due to a stomach virus and hit her head, hard enough to knock her out of commission at State for several weeks. She was back on the job on January 7. On January 23, three days before Abedin’s e-mail was sent, she testified before a House committee about Benghazi. She wore special glasses that day too to help with blurred or double vision. That was the same hearing where she famously said in response to a question about whether the attack was planned terrorism or some sort of spontaneous mob, “What difference at this point does it make?”


So you can look at Abedin’s e-mail two ways. One: Six weeks after suffering a brain injury, Hillary was still “often confused” about things. That’s quite a concussion. Bill Clinton noted last year that it took “six months of very serious work” for her to get over it, which seems newly credible now that you know how long the aftereffects lingered. Two: Even an “often confused” Hillary whose brain had been rattled a month earlier was capable of holding her own with Republican oversight members. If that’s not all the proof you need that GOP-run congressional hearings are mostly a waste of time, I don’t know what else to tell you.

In lieu of an exit question I’ll leave you with this Hillary-related tweet, which damaged my own brain when I first saw it on Sunday morning.
