Hillary Clinton's top aide last week testified in a deposition that the former secretary of state burned some of her schedules, the New York Post reported.

Huma Abedin made the revelation in a deposition regarding a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch over Clinton's emails, but it could open up a can of worms in other lawsuits and investigations, the Post reported.

"If there was a schedule that was created that was her Secretary of State daily schedule, and a copy of that was then put in the burn bag, that . . . that certainly happened . . . on more than one occasion," Abedin was quoted by the Post.

It's relevant in that this is the first time Abedin or anyone else who worked for Clinton has admitted that public records were destroyed, the Post reported.

The practice of burning schedules is usually employed by presidents to preserve sensitive meetings, the Post reported.

"I spent eight years at the State Department … I've never seen anyone put their schedule in the burn bag — because every one of them had a state.gov email address and therefore their daily schedules became public records, as required by law," former diplomat Richard Grenell told the Post.
