The Federal Bureau of Investigation recently sent a letter to clear up the false statements that Comey told the Congress last week.
Comey said that Hillary Clinton aide, Human Abedin was the one who forwards thousands of emails to her husband’s laptop.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D- California received the ‘supplement testimony, who is a top member of the committee that witnessed Comey testify, and the supplement was designed to “ensure that the committee has the full context of what was reviewed and found on the laptop.”
Gregory Brower, assistant director of the FBI’s Office of Congressional Affairs, signed the note and clarified that the “hundreds of thousands of emails” that Comey said were ‘forwarded” from Abedin to her husband’s email “included emails transferred via backups as well as manual forwarding.”
Comey said that the testimony he gave to Congress revealed that Hillary Clinton’s emails were forwarded to the laptop of Abedin’s husband, former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner. He suggested that “hundreds and thousands” of emails had been deliberately sent directly from Abedin to Weiner’s computer.
However, the FBI confirmed in a letter: “Although we do not know the exact numbers, based on its investigation, the FBI believes it is reasonable to conclude that most of the emails found on Mr. Weiner’s laptop computer related to the Clinton investigation occurred as a result of a backup of personal electronic devices, with a small number a result of manual forwarding by Ms. Abedin to Mr. Weiner.”
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz asked Comey how he would handle an FBI agent who forwarded “thousands of classified emails to his or her spouse,” Comey replied, “Well, there would be significant administrative discipline. I’m highly confident they wouldn’t be prosecuted. I’m also highly confident there would be discipline.”
