Just when we thought this circus act of an election could not possibly get any more grotesque…
Federal law enforcement officials said on Friday that a trove of emails described by the F.B.I. director as pertinent to the now-closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server were discovered on a computer belonging to Anthony D. Weiner, the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, a top aide to Mrs. Clinton.
In a stunning 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.”
Apparently the Shrillary case is closed no longer. Could it be that Comey will redeem himself for his conspicuously corrupt refusal to recommend prosecution for her criminal mishandling of classified information earlier?
The F.B.I. is investigating illicit text messages that Mr. Weiner, a former Democratic congressman from New York, sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. The bureau told Congress on Friday that it had uncovered new emails related to the Clinton case — one federal official said they numbered in the tens of thousands.
There’s no need to explain why the FBI would be investigating electronic correspondence between the once prominent congresscritter and underage girls. Weiner destroyed his congressional career and a shot at becoming the Mayor of New York through his inability to refrain from indulging in inappropriate online relationships with girls much younger than himself. At one point, he accidently posted a lewd picture of himself for all the world to see on Twitter. Good thing he didn’t do that with any classified data from Shrillary’s ill-fated tenure as Secretary of State.
This won’t help Weiner’s rocky marriage to Shrillary’s inseparable sidekick, Muslim Brotherhood–affiliated Huma Abedin. They were already separated as a result of Weiner’s perverted and possibly criminal virtual activities.
If you submitted this as a movie plot, you could never get it produced, even as a comedy. Too outrageous.
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. A senior law enforcement official said that the emails belonged to Ms. Abedin and were backed up on Mr. Weiner’s computer.
This indicates why there are not only protocols but criminal laws relating to the handling of classified information, and why those who violate them are usually prosecuted. However, given Shrillary’s reputation for pay-for-play politics, the emails may contain evidence of more serious crimes.
