Anthony freakin Weiner. There. I said it. Or Huma Abedin.
Federal law enforcement officials said Friday that the new emails uncovered in the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server were discovered after the F.B.I. seized electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin, an aide to Mrs. Clinton, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.
The F.B.I. told Congress that it had uncovered new emails related to the closed investigation into whether Mrs. Clinton or her aides had mishandled classified information, potentially reigniting an issue that has weighed on the presidential campaign and offering a lifeline to Donald J. Trump less than two weeks before the election.
In a letter to Congress, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said that emails had surfaced in an unrelated case, and that they “appear to be pertinent to the investigation.”
Mr. Comey said the F.B.I. was taking steps to “determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.” He said he did not know how long it would take to review the emails, or whether the new information was significant.
We knew the FBI was investigating Weiner’s “sexting” fetish and they had seized his phone. But who would ever have thought that it would produce new evidence leading back to Hillary Clinton. It could be Abedin, but Abedin didn’t seem to be caught up in the “destroy the email frenzy.” Though what was discovered clearly pertained to classified information? Was Weiner pilfering Abedin’s emails for his own failed consulting adventure? Was she sharing them with him? Was Abedin the person walking the classified information out of the SCIF? Were there directions to Abedin from Hillary on how to bypass security regulations?
We’ll probably never know as this is the FBI we’re talking about.
