When in doubt, assume your audience is stupid and lie to them. It worked for Hillary Clinton and Anthony Weiner, the two people closest to Huma. So why not give it a try? That seems to be the reasoning here.
Top Hillary Clinton confidante Huma Abedin played no formal role in a radical Muslim journal — even though she was listed as an editor on the hate-filled periodical’s masthead for a dozen years, a campaign rep claimed Sunday.
Merrill said Abedin was just a figurehead and not actually on staff at the Saudi-based and -funded Journal of Minority Muslim Affairs, which featured radically anti-feminist views and backed strict Islamic laws roundly criticized for oppressing women...
...Her brother, who was an associate editor, and a sister, also employed as an assistant editor, are listed as staff members.
Abedin’s Pakistani mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, remains editor-in-chief...
