Clinton paid aide Huma Abedin nearly $65G from campaign funds since defeat

Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has paid Huma Abedin nearly $65,000 from her campaign funds since her November election defeat, Federal Election Commission filings show.

Records show Abedin, Clinton's longtime friend and aide who served as the vice chair of the campaign, has been paid $64,415.10 in salary from Hillary for America, Clinton's campaign committee, since mid-November.

From mid-November to the end of March, Abedin was paid $52,180.65 from Hillary for America. From the beginning of April until the end of June, Abedin was given another $12,234.45 from Clinton's campaign committee.

Abedin is not the only individual who is still receiving payments from Clinton's campaign.

Nick Merrill, Hillary's former press secretary, was still receiving checks from the campaign as of late June, the end point for the latest available figures.

Robert Russo, who was the director of correspondence and briefing for the campaign, now carries the same job title in the Office of Hillary Clinton and is still being compensated from Clinton's campaign committee, as are a number of other staffers.

Clinton has also sent $800,000 from her campaign funds to Onward Together, a "resistance" group that she launched earlier this year, the Washington Free Beacon previously reported.

Maybe they are still on the payroll because Hillary keeps waiting for Trump's victory to be overturned and someone, somehow, claim that she actually won.  Then again she may be holding them over for her 2020 run.  Thing is I don't see the DNC being near as accommodating of Hillary in 2020 and rather they will look for some other darling realizing that her time has long come and gone. 

I just wonder how many will buy this new "Here's what happened and why" book about her defeat in 2016.

Could be she also knows where many of the skeletons are buried/kept but LOVE the analogy to the old Confederate soldier image.  Only the old confederate soldier has weathered time far better than Hillary.
