This week a report broke that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, and her estranged husband, disgraced former Democrat politician Anthony Weiner, have called off plans to seek a divorce via the court system.
According to legal experts cited by Page Six, Abedin may have chosen to call off the divorce with Weiner so as to prevent him from testifying against her if the FBI reopens its investigation into the Clinton email scandal.
During another investigation two years ago into Weiner over allegations he had sexted with a 15-year-old girl, the FBI discovered work-related emails — including classified State Department documents — from Abedin on the since-convicted former Democrat senator’s laptop.
If the FBI reopens the Clinton probe — and The Hill confirmed that the Justice Department is “exploring whether any issues from that probe should be re-opened” — Weiner might be called to testify against Abedin.
But according to family law expert Michael Stutman, the couple could avoid this dilemma by remaining married, which is what he suspects they really plan to do — especially since court approval is mandatory for a divorce to be legally binding. – READ MORE
Huma Abedin backed up copies of her emails with Hillary Clinton onto her husband’s laptop, contrary to what she told the FBI and other officials investigating the email scandal, according to a new report.
Abedin, Clinton’s top aide, backed up many of her work-related emails to Anthony Weiner’s laptop after Clinton left the State Department in early 2013, the Daily Mail writes after a examination of her emails.
But Abedin told the FBI that she “lost most of her old emails as a result of the transition” from the State Department.
“She had only accessed clintonemail.com through a web portal and did not have a method for archiving her old emails prior to the transition,” according to notes taken during an FBI interview with Abedin on April 5, 2016.
Abedin compounded that statement in June 2016 by telling lawyers from a watchdog group under oath that she didn’t back up emails.
“With respect to those State Department work-related emails on the Clintonemail.com accounts, what did you do, if anything, to preserve those emails?” asked an attorney with Judicial Watch, according to a transcript of the deposition. – READ MORE
President Trump on Tuesday demanded Hillary Clinton’s former aide Huma Abedin be sent to jail for not properly handling classified information.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.
