Huma Abedin Didn’t Know Her Emails Were on Weiner’s Laptop: Lawyer – NBCNews.com
A lawyer for top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin said Monday that Abedin did not know that her emails were on a computer that belonged to her estranged husband, disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner.
In a statement, attorney Karen Dunn, who has also been a Clinton adviser, said that Abedin “only learned for the first time on Friday, from press reports, of the possibility that a laptop belonging to Mr. Weiner could contain emails of hers.”
Law enforcement officials previously told NBC News that Abedin used the laptop to send thousands of emails to Clinton.
Dunn said that the FBI had not contacted them about the issue, though she added that “Ms. Abedin will continue to be, as she always has been, forthcoming and cooperative.”
“From the beginning, Ms. Abedin has complied fully and voluntarily with State Department and law enforcement requests, including sitting for hours-long interviews and providing her work-related and potentially work-related documents,” Dunn said.
“Ms. Abedin’s willing cooperation has been praised by Members of Congress and law enforcement officials alike,” Dunn said.
