Abedin Swore Under Oath She Gave Up All Devices with State Emails in Judicial Watch Deposition
On Friday FBI Director James Comey reopened his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and handling of classified information based on email discovered on a computer shared by Huma Abedin and her disgraced husband Anthony Weiner. But in sworn testimony given to Judicial Watch Abedin claimed she had already given all devices with State Department emails over to investigators. This new information could mean Abedin lied under oath- which would be very serious. Judicial Watch is investigating now.
The Daily Beast reports:
But the new information that the FBI found State Department-related email on her home laptop also calls into question whether Abedin in fact turned over all of the devices she used to send and receive email while working at State.
On June 28, 2016, Abedin said under oath in a sworn deposition that she looked for all devices that she thought contained government work on them so the records could be given to the State Department. (These records were subsequently reviewed by the FBI.)
“How did you go about searching for what records you may have in your possession to be returned to the State Department?” Attorney Ramona Cotca for Judicial Watch asked her.
“I looked for all the devices that may have any of my State Department work on it and returned — returned — gave them to my attorneys for them to review for all relevant documents. And gave them devices and paper,” Abedin answered.
