REPORT: Emails show FBI’s mad scramble to correct James Comey testimony about Huma Abedin


Emails show FBI officials scrambling to correct the record after then-Director James Comey provided inaccurate testimony about a top aide to Hillary Clinton.

In Senate testimony on May 3, 2017, Comey said Huma Abedin made “a regular practice” of forwarding “hundreds and thousands” of emails from her boss to her husband and former Congressman Anthony Weiner, some of which were classified. Comey said Abedin did this so Weiner could print the emails out.

The article goes on to state the following:

The FBI, which had seized Weiner’s laptop as part of a criminal investigation into his sexting with a high school student, found Comey’s assertion to be widely overstated, and on May 8 ProPublica reported that officials were working to correct the record.

In an email thread beginning at 6:34 a.m. on May 9, FBI officials frantically conversed about drafting a letter to Congress. The email thread, involving nearly a dozen officials, had the subject line, “Comey’s Testimony on Huma Abedin Forwarding Emails Was Inaccurate – ProPublica.”

At 8:56 a.m., Comey’s chief of staff, Jim Rybicki, sent the group a draft letter which said, “Below is a draft that has been reviewed by the Director. Please let me know your thoughts.”
