Most transparent evuh! Methinks the FBI isn’t going to like this.

The State Department is investigating some of the questions raised in a Daily Caller article published this week which revealed that one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides, Huma Abedin, rejected the idea of the then-secretary of state using a government-issued Blackberry, an agency spokesman indicated Thursday.
Mark Toner declined during a daily press briefing to answer a reporter’s questions about the article, saying that there are “other investigations” and “reviews looking at some of these questions.”
Emails released to TheDC in response to a FOIA lawsuit showed that in an Aug. 2011 email chain Stephen Mull, the State Department’s executive secretary at the time, wrote that Clinton had asked for a department-issued Blackberry to replace her malfunctioning personal unit. The Blackberry would be able to “mask [Clinton’s] identity,” Mull said, but cautioned that it would be “subject to FOIA requests.” (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Clinton Aides Resisted State Department Suggestion That Clinton Use State.gov Account)
But as the email traffic shows, the idea was vetoed by Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff at the time and the vice chair of her presidential campaign.
“Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense,” Abedin wrote.
