Clin­ton aide’s emails re­leased

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - NATION/POLITICS -

WASHINGTON — The State Depart­ment has re­leased emails from Huma Abe­din, a top aide to Hil­lary Clin­ton, that were found by the FBI on her hus­band’s lap­top.

Some of the emails found on for­mer Rep. An­thony Weiner’s lap­top were marked classified. It was un­clear whether they were deemed classified at the time they were sent or when the State Depart­ment was pre­par­ing them for re­lease.

The emails were re­leased in re­sponse to a Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion Act law­suit filed by the con­ser­va­tive watch­dog group Ju­di­cial Watch.

The State Depart­ment said it “care­fully re­views the con­tent of records re­quested through FOIA to de­ter­mine whether any in­for­ma­tion is sen­si­tive or classified,” and some of the doc­u­ments re­leased Fri­day have “classified in­for­ma­tion that has been redacted.”

The FBI found thou­sands of emails ex­changed be­tween Clin­ton and Abe­din while search­ing Weiner’s lap­top as part of a crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion into his sex­ting with a high school stu­dent.

The dis­cov­ery led then-FBI Di­rec­tor James Comey to an­nounce in late Oc­to­ber 2016, as Clin­ton’s run for the White House was in its fi­nal stage, that he was re­open­ing the probe of her use of a pri­vate com­puter server.
