Author Peter Schweizer wrote the book Clinton Cash, which was later turned into a movie (available for viewing on, about the activities of the crime family that got rich selling political influence.

Schweizer has stayed on the case and commented on the unfolding developments, particularly regarding Hillary’s detached style of management regarding her responsibilities. Earlier in the month, he remarked about one lesson from the Wikileaks revelations, that her organization is “staff-driven”:

SCHWEIZER: “That’s one of the stunning things that comes out in this. These are emails that are her senior staff and there are so many times when you know she is supposed to meet with somebody or talk with somebody, and Hillary simply says, well tell me when to call them and what to say. A lot of decisions are made without her input and it just shows that this is a very staff-driven organization. This is not somebody who is in a sense calling the shots. She’s relying on her staff what to say, when to say it and to set her policy.
A hands-off management style is not what the nation needs in a president during these dangerous times, particularly when the Wikileaks emails have shown Hillary’s staff to be a corrupt team of weasels who will lie whenever a cover-up is required. And aides certainly shouldn’t be setting important policy, as they apparently did when Hillary was Secretary of State.

Schweizer appeared on Fox Sunday and discussed the latest news about the Clinton email scandal since FBI Director Comey reopened the case. Importantly, Schweizer pointed out the central role of Huma Abedin in everything Hillary Clinton does.

SCHWEIZER: “If you go look back at the interviews that were done by the FBI in the original email investigation, there’s some very very stunning quotes there from Department of State security personnel who are describing how Huma Abedin makes an enormous number of decisions related related to diplomatic factors and others, and to quote one of the security personnel, they had never seen a Secretary of State that dependent on a staff member. So if Huma is stepping away from the campaign, you wonder who’s gonna fill that role for Hillary Clinton.”
Here’s an audio version of the interview in case the YouTube disappears:


Huma is the daughter of an activist Muslim Brotherhood family who are well known in publishing and politics. Her mother, Saleha Abedin, is the editor in chief of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. Huma herself worked at the same publication which opposed western-style women’s rights, even though she was praised in an August puff piece from the Vogue fashion magazine as “Powerful, glamorous, and ubiquitous” — hardly the picture of a Muslim woman “liberated” by the veil.

Below, in 2010 Hillary Clinton spoke at the Dar al-Hekma college for women during a town hall meeting in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Huma’s mother Saleha Mahmood Abedin is standing on the right of Clinton (wearing glasses).

Interestingly, the late father Sayed wrote his PhD dissertation on the evil of President Thomas Jefferson going to war against the Barbary pirates to end the Muslim attacks on American shipping. Jefferson had paid the jizya tax — an element of sharia law — until he could construct a navy for the young American nation to defend itself on the seas.

Plus, it’s not like Huma has cut relations with her disreputable family: in fact her mother Saleha was spotted in September doing childcare duties of Huma’s son Jordan in New York City after she announced her divorce from Anthony Weiner.

Finally, Huma Abedin has been staying at home to get her away from the campaign and reporters since she is under investigation. But it’s hard to imagine a Hillary presidency without Huma at her side, whispering Islam-friendly things into her ear. We hope for a different outcome than a Muslim Brotherhood voice in the next White House.
