Abedin Has Her Own Scandal Now

Anthony Weiner isn't the only scandal Huma Abedin needs to deal with these days.

Josh Rogin reports Abedin "is facing an ongoing Senate investigation into the consulting fees she earned while also working as a State Department employee for then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton."

"In June, 2012, Abedin changed her employment status at the State Department from being a full time employee with the title of deputy chief of staff to being a 'special government employee,' a type of contractor that allowed her to take on private clients in addition to her government job that included Hillary Clinton's post-State Department transition team, the William J. Clinton Foundation, and Teneo Holdings, a firm run by Clinton confidante Doug Band."
