Comey: Anthony Weiner’s Laptop Had Hundreds of Thousands of Hillary Clinton’s Emails on It

Former FBI Director James Comey revealed that Anthony Weiner’s laptop had “hundreds of thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails there, including Blackberry emails,” during an exclusive interview with ABC News.

Before this interview, it was thought that Weiner’s laptop possessed only several thousand Clinton emails, but it appears the actual number was far greater.

The Clinton emails that were found on Weiner’s laptop are what caused Comey to have the FBI reopen its investigation into Clinton’s email scandal in late October 2016.

ABC News George Stephanopoulos asked Comey when he first learned about the emails on Weiner’s laptop.

“Really, October 27th. Somebody earlier in October, in the beginning of October sometime, mentioned to me that there may be a connection between emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop and the Clinton email investigation,” Comey said.

Stephanopoulos asked if it was former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe who informed Comey about the emails. Comey said he could not recall with certainty whether it was McCabe, but thought that it was likely him.

“It’s led your critics to say that the FBI, for several weeks, sat on the knowledge that they had several thousand Hillary Clinton emails,” Stephanopoulos said.

“Yeah, more than several thousand,” Comey said. “Hundreds of thousands on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.”

Comey then recounted how, “early in the morning on October 27th,” the team that had conducted the investigation into Clinton’s email practice had asked to meet with him.

During this meeting, Comey was informed that “for reasons we can’t explain, hundreds of thousands of Hillary Clinton’s emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. And something much more important than that: thousands of emails from Hillary Clinton’s Blackberry domain.”

Comey then said he asked the team how fast they could review these emails and was informed that they couldn’t possibly finish before the election because of the number of emails

In the end, the FBI reviewed just 3,000 emails from the Weiner laptop, according to the Wall Street Journal before determining that there was “no new classified” information.
