It looks like Hillary Clinton’s longtime aide Huma Abedin owes taxpayers over ten grand worth of money she was “overpaid” while working at the State Department.

A couple of years ago, a State Department IG was more than curious about Abedin’s, oh, let’s call them “unaccounted for bonuses”:

The State Department inspector general opened a “criminal investigation” of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin in 2013 over allegations of “theft” — referring to overpayments she received and overtime she allegedly wrongfully billed. But the Justice Department declined to take up the issue, POLITICO has learned.

State’s watchdog in October 2013 escalated a preliminary inquiry regarding Abedin’s work compensation to a “criminal” probe, according to a copy of the notice the watchdog gave the FBI, which was obtained by POLITICO.

“This is to notify you the U.S. Department of State, Office of Inspector General, Washington, D.C., has opened a criminal investigation of the following: Subject: Huma M. Abedin. Title: Former Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. Office: Office of the Secretary,” reads the notice to the FBI. “The investigation concerns allegations of title 18 U.S.C. 641 Theft.”
[…]
It’s unclear exactly why Justice didn’t take it up, but it’s now being handled as an administrative claim in which State has asked Abedin to pay back about $10,000 the IG concluded she was over-compensated.

If State Department investigators had been serious about convincing Holder’s Justice Department to take up the investigation, they’d have told the DOJ that Abedin was an Obama-mocking midwestern rodeo clown:

Speaking of clowns, Abedin has blamed Carlos Danger for the “oversight” that made her an additional several thousand dollars.
