While they worked for Hillary Clinton at the State Department, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills used personal email addresses from Clinton’s private server. This news comes as the American public learns more about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. In addition, Huma Abedin held private sector jobs on the side, and Cheryl Mills was known for preventing any Benghazi-related documents from being reviewed by the Accountability Review Board. In 2000, Judicial Watch revealed Mills, who was involved with the Clintons then, withheld 1.8 million emails from it, Congress, and federal investigators. Also, Judicial Watch revealed that Cheryl Mills directed Victoria Nuland to not answer press inquiries about the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks after they occurred, which it discovered from documents it obtained from a FOIA lawsuit.

Below is a quote from the article that notes Clinton’s hypocrisy in relation to the email scandal:
Mills may no longer be at the State Department, but her legacy of slippery evasion lives on. Last week, reporters asked State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf about a 2011 cable that Hillary Clinton’s office sent ordering employees not to use personal e-mail for government business, owing to security concerns.
“Her name is at the bottom of the cable, as is practiced for cables coming from Washington,” Harf said, referring to Mrs. Clinton. “Some think she wrote it, which is not accurate.” Even though the cable carried her full authority, Hillary’s actual responsibility for it seems to depends on just what the meaning of “wrote” is.
