Hillary Rodham Clinton personally signed off on the controversial deal in 2012 that let her top aide Huma Abedin simultaneously work for the State Department and a private New York firm with deep ties to the Clinton family, according to records made public Thursday.

The State Department emails released to select congressional committees and the watchdog group Judicial Watch also show that almost immediately after Ms. Abedin got permission to work in New York for the Teneo Group, she tried to get the federal government to pay the cost of her commuting back and forth to Washington to serve as a senior adviser to Mrs. Clinton, who was then the secretary of state.

Just four days earlier, Mrs. Clinton personally signed a title change form that approved Ms. Abedin, one of her most trusted aides, transitioning from being her deputy chief staff and a formal federal employee, to an SGE, the equivalent of a contractor with special privileges.

Nope--just trying to sell more Florida swampland to the US taxpayers.

They get fired for opposing Trump's mad schemes.
Or for upstaging him and making the headlines too much, could be negative headlines or otherwise....

My bet is Pruitt is on his way out and Carson may well follow, this week has been too quiet.

The difference between Pruitt and previous cabinet who were fired is that Trump personally called Pruitt and so did Chief of Staff Kelly to reassure him he was okay. I don't recall that happening before. Time will tell.

I didn’t like the fact that abedin was an aide and worked privately but she was not the head of an agency accepting gifts from lobbyists. It was also in full view as opposed to Pruitt’s actions, did he ask for a ruling from the ethics commission. Why is it so hard to admit that Pruitt was wrong and needs to leave.
