#CocktoberSurprise: Anthony Weiner investigation prompts latest Clinton email bombshell

3:15 pm - 10/28/2016

New emails tied to the FBI's investigation of Hillary Clinton were discovered in a separate probe, in which the devices of former Congressman Anthony Weiner and Clinton aide Huma Abedin were seized, NBC News confirmed.

The New York Times first reported the news.

While examining Weiner's laptop, investigators discovered Abedin also used the laptop, which contained some emails between Abedin and Clinton, NBC News reported.

FBI Director James Comey said in a Friday letter to lawmakers that the agency is looking into the newly discovered emails.

The FBI has been examining text messages that Weiner sent to a minor in North Carolina that sources told NBC News included pornographic videos, requests for nudity and requests for masturbation. In September, law enforcement sources told NBC News that the investigation was in its early stages, but already included a subpoena for Weiner's cellphone records.

Weiner previously admitted "terrible judgment" in a statement to NBC News, but claimed he was the victim of a hoax.

Donald Trump previously lashed out at Weiner online, suggesting in one tweet that the former congressman was a security risk.

oh man...

I re-watched the Weiner doc and honestly watching Huma in it was so sad. You could tell she had so much resentment but was thinking of his career/her career/their child in not leaving. When the second allegation came out and she was on a conference call with a reporter with him and the pictures were on a television newscast in the room you could almost see her heartbreaking again jn real time.

Fuck this guy.

Comey released a second statement:

To all:

This morning I sent a letter to Congress in connection with the Secretary Clinton email investigation. Yesterday, the investigative team briefed me on their recommendation with respect to seeking access to emails that have recently been found in an unrelated case. Because those emails appear to be pertinent to our investigation, I agreed that we should take appropriate steps to obtain and review them.

Of course, we don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed. I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record. At the same time, however, given that we don’t know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails, I don’t want to create a misleading impression. In trying to strike that balance, in a brief letter and in the middle of an election season, there is significant risk of being misunderstood, but I wanted you to hear directly from me about it.

Jim Comey

As usual, Owen Ellickson's Twitter is having a field day:

HILLARY: You useless fucking turd.
HILLARY: I've spent 40 years cleaning up after one dick, now I have to worry about yours?

WEINER: I... I have a problem.
HILLARY: And when you have one EVERYONE has to have one, right?
HILLARY: Jesus. Men are such dipshits.

I reject any reality in which this dialogue did not happen.

A quote that's been going around Twitter that I like is "if anyone ever believed the Clintons had a hired assassin on retainer, Anthony Weiner's continued existence is proof that that's not true."
