When authorities subpoenaed a laptop belonging to disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), they were looking for evidence that he had sent sexually explicit photos to minor.
In addition to what they were looking for, they found evidence that ultimately brought Weiner’s estranged wife, Huma Abedin, and her boss, Hillary Clinton, under closer scrutiny — and it was scrutiny that then Democratic presidential nominee Clinton could little afford.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, led by president Tom Fitton, sued for the released of the documents under the Freedom of Information Act — and just over a year later, those documents are finally going to be released.
The Daily Mail reported:
The State Department is set to release portions of 2,800 of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s work-related emails and other documents, all recovered last year by the FBI on a laptop belonging to her estranged husband Anthony Weiner.
Tom Fitton, president of the center-right government transparency group Judicial Watch, tweeted on Thursday afternoon that State would publish ‘releasable portions’ of the documents on Friday.
.@StateDept will publish releasable portions of 2800 government docs that @FBI found on Anthony Weiner laptop tomorrow (Dec. 29th). Again, thanks to @JudicialWatch lawsuits. Will @RealDonaldTrump DOJ finally take action on Clinton/Abedin misdeeds? https://t.co/8X4p0srBa9

There hasn’t been any insight into what might be in the documents that are set for public release some time on Friday.
