Former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) has been released from prison. Weiner couldn’t stop sending dick pics. He loved it so much, he sent some to a 15-year-old girl. That landed him in federal prison with a 21-month sentence.
Setting aside, Weiner destroying his entire life with dick pics, in the Huffington Post story, this last sentence was the most interesting one.
Once Weiner started sending his dick pics to underage children, in 2016, a federal investigation was opened.
That investigation led to authorities searching his personal computer and finding work emails from Abedin, leading then-FBI Director James Comey to reopen the investigation into Clinton’s private email server in the final days of the 2016 presidential campaign.
What has always pissed me off about this is that this “discovery” should NEVER have resulted in the reopening of Clinton email investigation. Abedin worked for Clinton. Her having email messages from that work on her computer was expected. It was also expected that these message were the same emails turned over to investigators previously.
There was not one bit of evidence that these email messages weren’t already turned over to investigators. But instead of taking a few hours to look over the messages to determine if the FBI already had them, Comey restarted the Clinton email investigation and gave a strange press conference announcing that days before the 2016 election.
Comey should have immediately been fired for doing this because once the FBI looked at the email messages, there was nothing there.
