The FBI is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server, thanks in part to her right-hand woman… and her husband’s right hand.
A major development just 11 days before the presidential election, the FBI is re-opening its investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.
“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” FBI director James Comey wrote in an letter to members of Congress released Friday. “I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.”
According to the New York Times, “U.S. 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 and her husband, Anthony Weiner.” Weiner, a former Democratic congressman, is being investigated over allegations of sexting with an underage girl.
Clinton has described Abedin – her “longtime companion” – as a second daughter, and insiders claim Abedin is Clinton’s most trusted aide. If Weiner was the reason for the renewed interest into Clinton’s emails, it would be like O. Henry and Alanis Morissette had a baby and named it this exact situation.
