Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s most trusted aide, is now claiming in her new memoir that she was ‘sexually assaulted’ by a U.S. Senator.
As Fox News reports:
Huma Abedin says in her new memoir that she was once sexually assaulted by a US senator — and was so shaken afterward that she ended up apologizing to him.
Abedin doesn’t identify the offending pol but writes in her upcoming tome “Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds” that she was working as an aide to then-Sen. Hillary Clinton when the incident occurred more than a decade ago, according to the Guardian, which obtained an advance copy of the book.
Abedin — the estranged wife of serial pervert and ex-con former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner — said the assault happened after a dinner attended by “a few senators and their aides.” Clinton, for whom she served as a longtime right-hand, was not there.
As The New York Post notes, Huma claims that the alleged assault happened in the Senator’s office:
“I ended up walking out with one of the senators, and soon we stopped in front of his building and he invited me in for coffee,” Abedin writes. “Once inside, he told me to make myself comfortable on the couch.”
The senator then took off his blazer and rolled up his sleeves as he made coffee and chatted with her, she said.
Then he “plopped down to my right, put his left arm around my shoulder, and kissed me, pushing his tongue into my mouth, pressing me back on the sofa,” she said.
“I was so utterly shocked, I pushed him away,” Abedin writes. “All I wanted was for the last 10 seconds to be erased.”
Abedin has been a longtime aide to Clinton, serving as a trusted aide during her stint in the Senate as well as during her time and Secretary of State in addition to her time helping to guide Clinton’s failed 2016 Presidential campaign.
