LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The first images of Huma Abedin since Monday were revealed by news today in the Middle East. Huma Abedin (photos below) is there with her boss, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, aiding week-long meetings for peace efforts in the region. Human Abedin, typically intensely private, was seen walking through corridors with political leaders, unfazed by the even a new wave of scandal pictures of husband Anthony Weiner dominating U.S. News today. On Wednesday, an unclothed photo of Anthony Weiner was revealed on a morning radio show; by evening the pic was confirmed by Weiner’s staff as true. The staffer confirmed the picture had in fact been sent to a woman online.
Huma Abedin on Thursday was in Abu Dhabi, meeting an international group to discuss issues for Libya. Walking feet behind State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Abedin was business as usual despite news of her pregnancy becoming a headline report in the New York Times Wednesday, and calls for her husband’s resignation dominating Washington news since Monday. Gennette Cordova, Lisa Weiss, and other women Weiner interacted with all spoke with news this week.
On the other front, the list of Congressional leaders asking for his resignation grew to at least a half dozen. Those pleas came even before Andrew Breitbart revealed an unclothed picture of Weiner to hosts of Sirius XM radio’s Opie and Anthony Show on Wednesday morning.
By Wednesday evening, officials confirmed that Huma is in fact pregnant. By while Abedin has seen the Monica Lewinsky scandal and similar controversies play out in her fifteen years in politics, the New York Post claims that Abedin is devoted to her husband, will not divorce him, and has even increased her work schedule. The same report, however, suggests that her isolation in her busy schedule may not have prepared her to comprehend the push for a Congressional Ethics probe even if Weiner refuses to resign.
Even more peculiar is an ABC news report Thursday as to Weiner’s alleged conduct before his marriage to Abedin. Weiner on Monday admitted to sending images to six women, three since their 11 month’s marriage started. The couple started dating in 2008 when she worked on Clinton’s presidential campaign. But a source tells ABC today that, even while they dated, Abedin was allegedly very informed about Weiner’s alleged conduct.
She reportedly told him to stop it before they married. “[She] did know that Weiner had a “problem” before their marriage, but he promised he was past that” claims the source. The same source claims that Weiner allegedly “worships” Abedin. But the same source did not explain how sending images to other women while your wife is pregnant is evidence of worshipping her.
