“Huma Abedin faces questions about dual jobs”
“…Abedin is facing her own troubles — less salacious than her husband’s, but potentially more severe.
Sen. Charles Grassley…wrote her and Secretary of State John Kerry asking why Abedin, the deputy chief of staff at the State Department under former Secretary Hillary Clinton, was granted status as a “special government employee” after the birth of her son.
That title allowed her to work from home as a part-time consultant to State, earning $135,000 as a government employee — while also earning $355,000 as a consultant for Teneo, where…Bill Clinton is a board member.
Craig Holman of Public Citizen…says Abedin’s dual status raises serious questions.
“If this story pans out that Huma actually had access to inside information while serving as a government official but at the same time serving as a strategic consultant to a firm that actively trades in the stock market, this could be quite a problem, ” he said.”
