- It was ‘very imp[ortant]’ to review Clinton’s phone-call schedule with her, Abedin cautioned an underling via email, because ‘she’s often confused’
- The email comes from Judicial Watch, which obtained it through a FOIA lawsuit against the State Department
- It also shows Clinton was asleep on a Saturday when the aide went to brief her on her schedule
- The same aide tried to reach her four days after the Benghazi terror attacks, but Clinton had slept through a White House briefing
Hillary Clinton needed hand-holding with her daily schedule and was ‘often confused’ while she was secretary of state, her former top aide and ‘body woman’ Huma Adebin wrote a colleague in a January 2013 email.
The message, to coworker Monica Hanley, followed a back-and-forth about Clinton’s schedule of calls with foreign leaders, including an 8:00 a.m. appointment to speak with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
‘Have you been going over calls with her for tomorrow? So she knows singh [sic] ls at 8?’ Abedin asked Hanley just before 5:00 p.m. on a Saturday.
‘She was in bed for a nap by the time I heard that she had an 8am call,’ Hanley replied three minutes later. ‘Will go over with her.’
‘Very imp[ortant] to do that. She’s often confused,’ Abedin told her.
