Huma Abedin, a long-time top aide to Hillary Clinton, regularly forwarded classified emails to her husband, Anthony Weiner, FBI Director James Comey testified Wednesday.
Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., asked Comey how classified information got on Weiner's computer, something the FBI learned last October.
"His then-spouse, Huma Abedin, appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding emails to him for him, I think, to print out for her so she could then deliver them to the Secretary of State [Clinton]," Comey replied.
Comey couldn't say definitively whether Weiner read the classified documents, believed to primarily have been emails.
"Why did you conclude that neither of them committed a crime?" Kennedy asked.
"Because with respect to Ms. Abedin in particular, we didn't have any indication that she had a sense that what she was doing was in violation of the law, couldn't prove any sort of criminal intent," Comey answered.
The discovery of emails on Weiner's computer last October is what forced the FBI to take new actions in the investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a non-governmental computer server to handle emails, which included the business of her position at the time as Secretary of State.
Clinton and her campaign blame the FBI's announcement that it was reopening its investigation for her loss to Trump in the election.
