The newest revelation that came out Friday afternoon from the Hillary Clinton email scandal was that FBI Director James Comey, a registered Republican, sent a letter Friday morning to lawmakers saying that the FBI will reopen the case that had previously recommended that Clinton not face criminal action due to her mishandling of emails with her private server.
It has been revealed that they were new emails that were viewed to be “pertinent” to the case. However, these new email developments trace to a new person in this story: Former New York Congressman Anthony D. Weiner (D-Queens), who ran for New York City mayor in 2005, 2009, and 2013. The emails came from the same device that Weiner and his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s closest confidante and aide used.
The emails were found on the same laptop that Abedin used to use. This could be a new bombshell for the destroyed career of Weiner, who was once a rising star in New York politics and national politics and have been finished since he was caught sexting online and on his cellphone with women and underage girls.
This could hurt Clinton again, who was peaking and had some momentum after having 3 good general election debates and poll numbers after rival billionaire Donald Trump’s sexual harassment allegations and divisions with the Republican Party establishment had opened the way for Clinton to have red-state appeal.
