Disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner often used his computer to pursue underage girls. He's now in prison for sending sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl.
No shocker there, right? Congress is full of despicable people. But Weiner just happens to be married (at least for a little while longer) to Huma Abedin, who is Hillary Clinton's top aide. Abedin worked with Clinton throughout her stint as Secretary of State, and was one of several staffers using a secret email server Clinton deployed during her tenure.
For some reason, classified emails were found on Weiner's laptop.
"Judicial Watch revealed today that there are at least 18 classified emails in the 798 documents recently produced by the State Department from the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s elicit email system. The emails were found on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, who is the estranged husband of former Clinton aide Huma Abedin," the government watchdog group reported on Thursday.
There are five new classified emails among 147 new Abedin work-related documents released by the State Department on Friday, December 29, 2017.
Thirteen emails containing classified information were also found on the Weiner laptop computer that had already been released to the public. This classified material includes discussions about Saudi Arabia, The Hague, Egypt, South Africa, Zimbabwe, the identity of a CIA official, Malawi, the war in Syria, Lebanon, Hamas, and the PLO,
On two occasions, classified material was sent by Abedin on her clintonemail.com account to Weiner’s laptop (sent to “Anthony Campaign”) on November 25, 2010. The email discusses an upcoming call with Prince Saud of “expected WikiLeaks leaks.” Abedin sent classified information the following day to Weiner’s laptop concerning a call that “Jeff” (presumably then- US Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman) had with United Arab Emirates Prime Minister Abdullah bin Zayed.
The Weiner laptop also contains classified material from Abedin’s Blackberry. A July 9, 2011, email contained classified information regarding a then-upcoming call between Clinton and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. On November 25, 2011, classified information was sent regarding Feltman’s notes on the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs impression of the Hamas- Palestine Liberation Organization talks. On May 4, 2012, additional classified material from the BlackBerry backup was sent.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton appeared Thursday on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" and said the FBI knew about the classified emails.
"These are classified records that [Former FBI Director] James Comey and his colleagues ... knew were on the Weiner laptop, but didn’t take seriously enough to pursue criminal charges against Abedin or Clinton for allowing this egregious abuse of trust that the American people placed in them," he said.
"It wasn’t just low-level classified materials that were found in the Clinton email server," Fitton said. "But there were highly top secret documents of the most secure type and it would have resulted in a criminal prosecution, I guarantee you, if you were anyone else but the Democratic nominee for president."
Perhaps when Weiner gets released, he'll find himself behind bars again — this time in a federal penitentiary.
