Clinton Asks Weiner Staff To Send Her ‘Secure Phone’

“Maybe one of Anthony’s trusted staff could deliver secure phone?” Clinton wrote.

Lost in the trove of brand new emails released by the State Department on Thursday was an exchange between Hillary Clinton and longtime aide Huma Abedin, the estranged wife of former Congressman Anthony Weiner.

The email, from August 2010 and before Weiner’s sexting scandal, shows Abedin discussing sending a “secure phone” via FedEx.

“Ok I will [REDACTED] just fedex secure cell phone from dc,” Abedin wrote. “Anthony leaving office to bring me to airport now so hopefully will make it just in time.”

The phone in question appeared to be for Clinton. In her reply to Abedin’s email, she asked about a member of Weiner’s staff delivering the phone.

“Maybe one of Anthony’s trusted staff could deliver secure phone?” Clinton wrote back.

Clinton Abedin Email Secure Phone

The release of this email comes at an inopportune time for Clinton, given last Friday’s news that Weiner’s sexting scandal and Abedin’s State Department emails found on his computer, prompted the FBI to reopen its case investigating Clinton’s handling of classified material.
