Bill Clinton must be proud of how the Clinton Campaign Team have turned Hillary’s one time closest aide, but now just another staff member, into a valuable asset for sale. Huma Abedin may be off the campaign trail but now she’s for sale at a mere $5,000 a pop.
Until last week, Huma Abedin was Hillary Clinton’s closest aide but that all changed with the reopening of the FBI email investigation and the revelations that Clinton emails were on Huma Abedin’s estranged husband Anthony Weiner’s, laptop. Now Huma is to headline a fundraiser in Washington DC on Thursday evening, with the chance to be photographed with her going for $5,000. The picture is also likely to include the chance to be photographed with Anna Wintour and Diane von Furstenberg, the co-hosts of the fundraising evening for the Hillary for Victory fund.

The invitations were issued a week ago but are still thought to be valid, despite Abedin now being a target for the FBI. They were obtained by the Independent Journal Review.
Although the invitations were issued before the FBI bombshell revelation that Abedin’s emails were at the center of a fresh investigation, the night is still apparently planned.
It is likely to be a glittering occasion – and one dripping in cash.
The venue is the north-west Washington home of Constance Milstein, who is part of the Milstein family, and controls Ogden CAP properties with her brother.
The family was estimated to be worth as much as $14 billion in 2009, although since then complex litigation has split the assets among different elements of it and Constance Milstein’s personal net worth is unclear.
The other two hosts also point to the wealth of those expected to attend: they are Anna Wintour, the Vogue editor-in-chief, and Diane von Furstenberg, the fashion designer.
Although it is hardly unusual for Abedin to be used for fundraisers, this will be the first since Friday’s bombshell.
Previously she had been a fixture at the glitziest of events, partying in Paris in September at a Fashion Week fundraiser, and also headlining one in New York just after she separated from her husband Anthony Weiner.
