When Judicial Watch released more than 2,000 emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized private email server on Thursday, one of those missives revealed the expensive, wasteful lengths Clinton would go to not have to spend time with Michelle Obama.
The telling email was written in July of 2011. Betty Ford had died, and all past U.S. First Ladies were called to come to her funeral in California to honor her life, including Clinton and Obama, who was First Lady at the time. However, Clinton didn’t want to fly on the same plane as Michelle Obama, so she asked a top aide if she could fly separately.
One of the documents showed a conversation between Clinton and then-Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin saying that she really did not want to take the same plane as Obama, despite the fact that they would be leaving from the same place at the same time.
Referring to the funeral, Clinton said, “I’d be honored to speak.” Then she asked, “Is it OK that we and Mrs. O take two separate planes?”
Other released emails allegedly show Clinton receiving and sending more classified information through her private, unsecured server. There are also several conversations that talk about people involved with the Clinton Foundation receiving favors from Abedin.
