News Alert: FBI Director Comey misspoke during testimony that Clinton aide Huma Abedin forwarded emails ‘regularly’ to her husband, according to people close to the investigation

During a hearing last week, James B. Comey offered new details about what FBI agents found last fall, after they realized a laptop belonging to former New York congressman Anthony Weiner, husband of Abedin, contained thousands of work emails involving Hillary Clinton. Comey said Abedin appeared to have had “a regular practice” of forwarding emails to Weiner for him to print out and deliver to Clinton. Comey suggested that Abedin forwarded “hundreds and thousands of emails, some of which contained classified information.” People close to the investigation say that Comey misstated these facts: Abedin did not forward emails to Weiner regularly and only a small number of forwarded emails were deemed to contain classified information.
