Huma Abedin, perhaps Hillary Clinton's closest aide and a former State Department official, says it’s "terrifying" to her to think what may be in the State Department emails that haven't been released yet.
"It’s something I can’t really think about, but I can’t even imagine what’s in those emails," Abedin said in an interview with the podcast "Call Your Girlfriend."
"I would probably be mortified. I have no idea. I haven’t read any of them." The story was first reported by The Hill.
Tens of thousands of Clinton’s emails have been released so far, including many messages to and from her aides. The releases came after it was discovered Clinton had used a private email address and server during her tenure as secretary of State.
What enraged many is that FOIA requests by newspapers and other organizations were being routinely dismissed because department officials themselves didn't realize they they weren't seeing all of her emails. The FBI is currently investigating.
The hosts on the show asked Abedin about an email exchange involving her trying to coach Clinton through using a fax machine.
"I think what you read in the email is a little bit of frustration that it wasn’t working and my frustration that she couldn’t figure it out or whatever it was," she said.
"But the backstory here is that we very often — it wasn’t unusual that when secure faxes were coming through that we had some challenges with them coming through."
On another point, Abedine rejected rejected any possibility she’d run for office one day.
