State Dept. Dodges Questions About Huma Abedin’s Role at Radical Islamic Journal

State Department spokesman Mark Toner ducked questions about the latest Clinton email developments at a press briefing on Monday, including one about Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin.

“The New York Post has been reporting on the presence of Huma Abedin, for more than a decade, on the masthead of an Islamic journal that published some fairly vile things, including blaming the U.S. for 9/11. In an article by the chief editor, Mrs. Abedin’s mother, the journal claimed that the ‘empowerment of women does more harm than benefit,’” said reporter James Rosen of Fox News, referring to a Paul Sperry piece published on Sunday by the Post.

“When Ms. Abedin was cleared to work here in the Department of State — one of the two jobs she held down, during her tenure here — was Ms. Abedin’s association with this journal known to the Secretary, or to anyone else in this building?” Rosen asked.
