|Clinton with Huma Abedin|
Aides identified include her long-time executive assistant, Huma Abedin, the wife of the disgraced former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner of Sydney Leathers sexting fame, and Cheryl Mills, her chief of staff at the State Department. The Gawker also separately reports that Phillipe Raines, Clinton's top communications strategist at State, also had one of the clintonemail.com e-mail addresses.
Clinton was already caught in a lie when she claimed at a press conference yesterday that among the 30,000 e-mails she did not turn over to the State Department were personal e-mails she exchanged with family members, including former President Bill Clinton. whose top aides say he has only sent two e-mails his entire life, both of which occurred while he was still president.
Clinton's problems were compounded after the AP filed suit today to force the State Department to turn over e-mails Clinton exchanged with State Department officials during her tenure, along with other government documents accumulated during her tenure as Secretary of State. The AP had requested the documents before it was made known that Clinton had exclusively used a private e-mail account hosted on an e-mail server in her home. Clinton only recently turned over about 50,000 pages of e-mails she sent from that private e-mail account after deleting e-mails she claimed were of a private nature.
