Huma Abedin's documents on husband's computer released

Huma Abedin's documents on husband's computer released

The Friday release came after a 2015 Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit filed by the conservative group Judicial Watch against the State Department seeking the release of emails containing "official State Department business" sent or received from Abedin from January of 2009 to February of 2013 using a non-state department email address. "That these government docs were on Anthony Weiner's laptop dramatically illustrates the need for the Justice Department to finally do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton's and Huma Abedin's obvious violations of law".

One of the emails has the subject "Egyptian MFA on Hamas-PLO talks", referring to the Palestine Liberation Organization.

The confidential emails, which date from 2010 to 2012, concern discussions with Middle Eastern leaders. The email is mostly redacted, only mentioning that it is a "further update on Hamas-PA talks", referring to the Palestinian Authority. Another email in 2010 discusses the aftermath of the quake in Haiti and United Nations staffers who were still buried under rubble.

While the newly released emails have been seized on by conservative activists who have always been critical of Clinton's treatment of classified emails as secretary of State, the FBI already said in 2016 that a review of the emails didn't change the bureau's opinion that Clinton shouldn't face charges over email handling.

Abedin was Clinton's deputy chief of staff at the State Department and at the time was married to Weiner, the former NY congressman who pleaded guilty in May to sexting with a 15-year-old girl and was sentenced in September to 21 months in prison. "I could not see a door labeled, 'No action needed, '" he said then.

Then-FBI Director James Comey testified earlier this year that "Somehow, her emails were being forwarded to Anthony Weiner, including classified information by (Clinton's) assistant, Huma Abedin", he said.

Israel has occupied the territories since the War of 1967, and has annexed East Jerusalem in 1980. Israel now has such control that it tells Americans what they can put on their own websites.

"Based on a preliminary review, the State Department expects that a significant portion of these documents may be duplicative of material already reviewed and processed", the status report read.

The FBI found Abedin's emails while searching Weiner's laptop in an underage sexting case.

Of those forwarded to Weiner, only two email chains contained classified information, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.

In July 2016, Comey said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not find "clear evidence" that she intentionally violated any laws concerning the handling of classified information. What's more, all 12 email chains had been previously reviewed by investigators.

Clinton's team has partly blamed what has become known as "the Comey letter" for her defeat to Donald Trump days later.
