Metadata found on the laptop used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide, suggests there may be thousands of emails sent to or from the private server that Mrs. Clinton used while she was secretary of state, according to people familiar with the matter. It will take weeks, at a minimum, to determine whether those messages are work-related from the time Ms. Abedin served with Mrs. Clinton at the State Department; how many are duplicates of emails already reviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and whether they include either classified information or important new evidence in the Clinton email probe.
The FBI has had to await a court order to begin reviewing the emails, because they were uncovered in an unrelated probe of Mr. Weiner.The Weiner probe (stop chortling) was to see if there was child porn on the laptop. Exposing yourself to a 15 year old was probably part of, "You show me yours and I'll show you mine." (Most people get past this by high school, but Weiner is a Democrat. The rest of the article discussing the internal battles between FBI agents who thougght there was more to investigate and the DOJ officials who wanted this shut down is interesting, depressing, and unsurprising. Some morsels to whet your taste:
Los Angeles agents had picked up information about the Clinton Foundation from an unrelated public corruption case and had issued some subpoenas for bank records related to the foundation, these people said.Would love to know more about that case before the case is buried by Obama.
