It was ‘very imp[ortant]’ to review Clinton’s phone-call schedule with her, Abedin cautioned an underling via email, because ‘she’s often confused’
from Daily Mail:
Hillary Clinton needed hand-holding with her daily schedule and was ‘often confused’ while she was secretary of state, her former top aide and ‘body woman’ Huma Adebin wrote a colleague in a January 2013 email.
The message, to coworker Monica Hanley, followed a back-and-forth about Clinton’s schedule of calls with foreign leaders, including an 8:00 a.m. appointment to speak with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
‘Have you been going over calls with her for tomorrow? So she knows singh [sic] ls at 8?’ Abedin asked Hanley just before 5:00 p.m. on a Saturday.
‘She was in bed for a nap by the time I heard that she had an 8am call,’ Hanley replied three minutes later. ‘Will go over with her.’
‘Very imp[ortant] to do that. She’s often confused,’ Abedin told her.

It wasn’t the first time Hanley had to keep up with Clinton’s weekend sleeping schedule. In an email released by the State Department in May, she tried to reach the then-secretary of state four days after the deadly terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
Clinton missed a meeting at the White House for President Obama’s daily national security briefing because she overslept.
Hanley emailed Clinton at 9:17 that morning to let her know that White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer’ had ‘some sensitive items that he would like to personally show you when he arrives.’
Clinton didn’t reply until 10:43, hearly an hour and a half later.
‘[J]ust woke up,’ she told Hanley, ‘so i [sic] missed Dan. Could he come back after [I] finish my calls?’
Judicial Watch, a right-leaning government transparency group, released the new Abedin email on Monday as a consequence of filing a Freedom Of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department.
The group had demanded to see all ’emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-“state.gov” email address.’
