FBI agents leading the probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information interviewed top aide Huma Abedin a full month after the conclusion of the investigation; demanding answers over how sensitive emails were found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop despite the case being closed.
According to the Washington Post, federal agents pressed the Clinton insider in December 2016 over how and why Hillary’s classified emails were forwarded to her husband’s personal computer; violating strict protocols surrounding the transmission of top-secret information.
The bureau officially concluded its investigation into Hillary’s email scandal in November; a full month before meeting with Abedin.
“The FBI interviewed top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin around the holidays last winter — more than a month and a half after the politically charged investigation into Clinton’s email practices had seemed to conclude for a second time,” writes the Post.
“The interview is important, though, because it shows that even after the bureau had intimated publicly that its probe into Clinton was over, the FBI knew it still had work to do with one of her close aides,” the article adds.
