FBI Director James Comey said on Wednesday that email from Hillary Clinton, many containing classified information, were forwarded to former congressman Anthony Weiner. Weiner is married to Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin.
Weiner was being investigated separately for possible inappropriate communications with a minor.
“Somehow, her emails were being forwarded to Anthony Weiner, including classified information,” Comey said, adding later, “His then-spouse Huma Abedin appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding emails to him for him to print out for her so she could deliver them to the secretary of state.”
Although Weiner and Abedin were investigated by the FBI for possible mishandling of classified info, the case was dropped when investigators said they could not prove criminal intent, according to Comey.
