Senate investigating Huma Abedin consulting fees


Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner’s wife and Hillary Clinton’s top aide,is being investigated by the Senate for private consulting she did while a State Department employee.

“It appears that Teneo [a Clinton-allied consulting firm] may have been compensating Ms. Abedin for gathering information from government sources for the purpose of informing investment decisions of her clients – or in other words, political intelligence,” Grassley wrote in a June 13 letter. “This raises important questions about whether her dual role was adequately disclosed to government officials who may have provided her information without realizing that she was being paid by private investors to gather information.”
