IS THE SECURITY LAPSE ASPECT OF THE E-MAILS SCANDAL BEING STEERED TOWARD HUMA ? ? ?
According to reports in Newsmax and other sources, FOX NEWS has reported that, “.... [E-] mails from Clinton adviser Huma Abedin and aide Jake Sullivan passed through Clinton's private email server. The messages were about military intelligence information a year before the 2012 Benghazi attack, and about the aftermath of the Benghazi attack....

The original scoop on this story, belongs to Catherine Herridge at FOX News (See “Classified emails from Clinton aides kick-started FBI probe, candidate downplays controversy” by Catherine Herridge, 8/19/15, Fox New/ FoxNews.com [http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/08/19/sensitive-emails-from-clinton-aides-kick-started-fbi-probe-candidate-downplays/]).

At this point, it might be fair to ask if the security breach part of this investigation concerning Hillary Clinton’s E-mails might legitimately laid at the door of Huma Abedin, the very close personal aide to Hillary Clinton.

The Fox report goes on to state this: “.... Fox News has identified two of the Benghazi-related emails on the server that were deemed to contain classified information at the time they were sent.... The first was forwarded by Clinton adviser Huma Abedin and contained classified material from military intelligence sources. The 2011 email forwards a warning about how then-Ambassador Chris Stevens was "considering departure from Benghazi" amid deteriorating conditions in a nearby city. The email was mistakenly released by the State Department in full, and is now considered declassified....
