Former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) chief James Comey claims that he did not know Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin was married to Anthony Weiner, which makes no sense considering the timeline of events.
Comey’s claim was included in the inspector general report published by Michael Horowitz Thursday,
Here is part of the IG report: “On October 28, 2016, 11 days before the presidential election, Comey sent a letter to Congress announcing the discovery of emails that “appear[ed] to be pertinent” to the Midyear investigation. Comey’s letter was referring to the FBI’s discovery of a large quantity of emails during the search of a laptop computer obtained in an unrelated investigation of Anthony Weiner, the husband of Clinton’s former Deputy Chief of Staff and personal assistant, Huma Abedin.”
“Comey said that he recalled first learning about the additional emails on the Weiner laptop at some point in early October 2016, although he said it was possible this could have occurred in late September 2016,” according to the Horowitz IG report.
“Comey told the OIG that this information ‘didn’t index’ with him, which he attributed to the way the information was presented to him and the fact that, ‘I don’t know that I knew that [Weiner] was married to Huma Abedin at the time,'” according to the report.
In actuality, Comey’s FBI was sitting on the Anthony Weiner emails as best they could, trying to drag it out before finally the story broke in the Daily Mail courtesy of reporter Alana Goodman, which forced their hand.
