FBI Director James Comey moved to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s treatment of classified material after discovering new materials on devices belonging to Huma Abedin, Clinton’s former deputy chief of staff, and Anthony Weiner, her soon-to-be ex-husband who is presently the subject of a separate probe into sexually charged messages he allegedly sent to a minor.
Agents seized the devices from Abedin and Weiner’s home during the sexting investigation, and found emails that potentially contained classified information, the New York Times reported Friday.
In a letter to Congress, Comey did not indicate what prompted him to revisit the Clinton email case. He cited only an “unrelated” probe in his letter to lawmakers Friday afternoon as the reason why his agents are again looking into Clinton’s handling of sensitive information.
Comey closed the investigation in July after failing to find evidence that Clinton and her staff intentionally mistreated classified documents.
