Judicial Watch's Fitton: New Clinton Emails Came From Huma Abedin's Account

A set of newly disclosed emails released this week by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch came from a search of computer files from Hillary Clinton's longtime aide Huma Abedin, the group's executive, Tom Fitton, revealed Wednesday.

"The State Department got these emails last year," Fitton told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "They've shown repeatedly that we're getting these batches of emails that include emails Mrs. Clinton never turned over to the State Department, despite her promises to Congress and despite telling a court under oath under penalty of perjury that as far as she knew, everything was turned over. Obviously that's not the case."

The emails included one exchange from 2009 in which Clinton Foundation senior staff member Doug Band told Abedin that it was "important to take care of" an individual, whose name was redacted. Abedin responded that "personnel has been sending him options."

The 44 email exchanges released Tuesday were not included with the 30,000 private messages Clinton turned over to the government in 2015.

Fitton said Wednesday that the emails appear to show the State Department, under Clinton as secretary of state, had allowed favors for Clinton Foundation donors and allies.

Abedin had an email account on Clinton's private email server where she had been conducting business, Fitton told "Fox & Friends."

"We've been getting these emails by dribs and drabs out of the State Department as a result of our litigation," said Fitton. "The State Department got these emails last year and they have shown repeatedly that they were getting these batches of emails that include emails that Mrs. Clinton never turned over to the State Department."

Democrats and Republicans were both concerned, along with President Barack Obama himself that when Clinton was nominated as secretary of state, there could be a conflict of interest, and they "extracted these promises from Mrs. Clinton to stay out of foundation business," said Fitton, but that didn't happen.

"Mrs. Clinton isn't being truthful when she says that she turned over all the emails to the American people," said Fitton. "And on top of this, now we're going to be getting the new emails the FBI has recovered over the next month or so."
