Investigators are combing through critical testimony by Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s top aide, during an April deposition by the Judicial Watch public-interest law firm.
The focus on Abedin come as FBI director James Comey announced Friday that the investigation over Hillary Clinton’s email scandal would continue despite his prior statements that it was completed. Comey revealed his decision in a letter to Congress after he’d gotten evidence that important emails were found on a laptop computer used by both Abedin and her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner.
The June deposition of Abedin was conducted by the watchdog group, Judicial Watch. During the questioning, their attorneys asked Abedin “How did you go about searching for what records you may have in your possession to be returned to the State Department?”
“I — 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.”
