The Clinton Camp Is Questioning Why Huma Abedin Is Testifying On Benghazi. This Is Why.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign is actively pushing a narrative that longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin shouldn’t be testifying at the House Select Committee on Benghazi:

This is an absurd argument. Over the course of her four years at the State Department, Abedin was regularly on emails with Clinton that contained substantive and in some cases classified information about the Benghazi attacks and Ambassador Chris Stevens’ mission in Libya.
In one email dated after the attacks and released by the State Department, Abedin even told Clinton she had a “long visit with my friend who was in Benghazi.”
Abedin was the State Department deputy chief of staff from 2009 to 2012, and a Special Government Employee starting in June of 2012, earning a salary of $126,000 during that time. Surely she has something to add to this conversation.
