FBI: Huma & Hillary Sent Classified Intel on Weiner’s Unsecured Email; Once Shared a Server With Dog Groomer
Huma Abedin sent and received thousands of classified and top secret documents to personal email accounts including Anthony Weiner’s unsecured campaign web site which is managed by Democratic political consultants in Washington D.C., according to intelligence uncovered by True Pundit.
Weiner, who is married to Abedin, maintained little known email accounts that the couple shared on the website anthonyweiner.com. Weiner, a former seven-term Democratic Congressman from New York, primarily used that domain to campaign for Congress and for his failed mayoral bid of New York City.
At one point, FBI sources said, Abedin and Clinton’s classified and top secret State Department documents and emails were stored in Weiner’s email on a server shared with a dog grooming service and a western Canadian bicycle shop.
“This is a tangled mess,” The FBI source said. “Where else can you get national security secrets and your pet groomed on the same server?”
However, Weiner and Abedin, who is Hillary Clinton’s closest personal aide, weren’t the only people with access to the Weiner’s email account. Potentially dozens of unknown individuals had access to Abedin’s sensitive State Department emails that were stored in Weiner’s email account, FBI sources confirmed.
FEC records show Weiner paid more than $92,000 of congressional campaign funds to Anne Lewis Strategies LLC to manage his email and web site. According to FBI sources, the D.C.-based political consulting firm has served as the official administrator of the anthonyweiner.com domain since 2010, the same time Abedin was working at the State Department. This means technically Weiner and Abedin’s emails, including top secret State Department emails, could have been accessed, printed, discussed, leaked, or distributed by untold numbers of personnel at the Anne Lewis consulting firm because they can control where the the website and it emails are pointed, FBI sources said.
According to FBI sources, the bureau’s newly-minted probe into Clinton’s use and handling of emails while she served as secretary of state, has been broadened to include investigating alarming new revelations, including:
- Abedin and Weiner shared email on his anthonyweiner.com site, among potential other shared emails
- Abedin forwarded classified and top secret State Department emails to Weiner’s email
- Abedin received classified emails sent to and stored in Weiner’s email
- Abedin stored many of these emails, containing government secrets, in a special folder shared with Weiner
- Hillary Clinton sent classified and top secret material through Weiner’s server/email to Abedin
- Weiner had access to these classified and top secret documents without proper security clearance to view the records
- Abedin also used a personal yahoo address and her Clintonemail.com address to send/receive/store classified and top secret documents
- A private consultant managed Weiner’s site for the last six years, including three years when Clinton was secretary of state, and therefore, had full access to all emails as the domain’s listed registrant and administrator via Whois email contacts.
Because Weiner’s campaign website is managed by the third-party consultant and political email guru, FBI agents are burdened with the task of trying to decipher just how many people had access to Weiner’s server and emails and who were these people. Or if the server was ever compromised by hackers, or other actors.
Weiner’s site is still actively registered but recently its content has been scrubbed. Here is what it looked like recently before it was blanked.
True Pundit contacted Anne Lewis for comment and sent a list of questions to the owner of the boutique consulting firm, including why it was still listed as the administrator for Weiner’s domain, and what $92,000 of congressional funds bought Weiner. Lewis, however, did not respond. True Pundit also sought to clarify why an email address to Anne Lewis’ domain was used for the registrant and administrative contacts for Weiner’s site, instead of an email address belonging solely to and controlled by Weiner himself.
To be fair, FBI sources said they do not believe at this point personnel from Anne Lewis Consulting compromised Weiner and Abedin’s emails. But federal agents will determine exactly how Weiner’s domain has been managed during the second phase of this probe. Again, FBI sources said, with registrant and admin control over that email address, Anne Lewis’ Consulting group basically controlled Weiner’s web site and emails and had an unfettered path to accessing its email content.
Weiner first purchased the domain anthonyweiner.com in 2003 and maintained control over it as the primary registrant and administrator until Nov, 2009 when the administrator email was changed to [email protected], law enforcement sources said. But Weiner didn’t work for Anne Lewis. He was a Congressman at the time. Now, almost six years later, the same email address linked to Anne Lewis’ firm still serves as the controlling registrant and administrator.
The web hosting for anthonyweiner.com included a more secure, dedicated server to warehouse its content for only 14 months of Clinton’s tenure at state. During her remaining time in office, Weiner’s site was largely hosted on shared and far-less secured servers, including:
- Jan 1 thru July 27, 2009:
Quality Investment Properties Sacramento, LLC, Weiner shared a server with seven other websites
- July 27 2009 thru Sept 13, 2010:
ThePlanet.com Internet Services, Inc. Weiner’s domain was on a secure, dedicated server for these 14 months
- Sept 13 2010 thru end of Clinton & Abedin’s State Department posts:
Media Temple, Inc. Weiner’s domain shared a server with 198 other websites, the least secured it had ever been. Weiner’s site shared a server with a dog grooming service called pamperedpaw.org and a western Canadian bicycle shop, among other obscure web businesses.
Abedin told FBI agents in an April interview that she didn’t know how to consistently print documents or emails from her secure Dept. of State system. Instead, she would forward the sensitive emails to her yahoo, Clintonemail.com and her email linked to Weiner.
Abedin said, according to FBI documents, she would then access those email accounts via webmail from an unclassified computer system at the State Dept. and print the documents, many of which were classified and top secret, from the largely unprotected webmail portals.
Clinton did not have a computer in her office on Mahogany Row at the State Dept. so she was not able to read timely intelligence unless it was printed out for her, Abedin said. Abedin also said Clinton could not operate the secure State Dept. fax machine installed in her Chappaqua, NY home without assistance.
Perhaps more alarming, according to the FBI’s 302 Report detailing its interview with Abedin, none of the multiple FBI agents and Justice Department officials who conducted the interview pressed Abedin to further detail the email address linked to Weiner. There was never a follow up, according to the 302 report.
But now, all that has changed, with the FBI’s decision to reopen the Clinton email investigation.
