The data belong to Huma Abedin, Clinton’s assistant, on a laptop of her husband, former Congressman Anthony D. Weiner Democrat, who is under investigation himself
The FBI uses a special software to determine whether the newly discovered emails from an assistant of the Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton contain classified information, The New York Times reported.
This software must determine which of these messages have already been examined in the first part of the investigation on the use of a private server by Clinton when she was the head of the American diplomacy (2009-2013).
In July, the FBI Director James Comey declared that investigation was closed and in agreement with the prosecutors in the case decided not to press charges against the former first lady and her assistants. However, on Friday the official announced to Congress the reopening of the inquiry, in a letter that the Times described as explosive.
It is still unclear whether the federal agents, under severe pressure by Democrats and Republicans, will complete the review of these texts before the presidential elections of November 8th.
If the investigating officers find emails with sensitive information, their copies should be sent to other government agencies to determine their level of secrecy.
The newly found data belong to Huma Abedin, Clinton’s assistant, on a laptop of her husband, former Congressman Anthony D. Weiner Democrat, who is under investigation on allegations of sexual content mails he exchanged with a 15 year old girl.
The New York newspaper says Comey’s decision to reopen the investigation against the former first lady led some historians to establish a parallel between him and his ‘infamous predecessor’ J. Edgar Hoover, who in 1960 ordered to spy the Rev. Martin Luther King, civil rights fighter.
