Weiner/Abedin laptop has well over half a million emails for FBI to go through? They sure were busy

The Clinton cesspool has no bottom:

The surprise disclosure that agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation are taking a new look at Hillary Clinton’s email use lays bare, just days before the election, tensions inside the bureau and the Justice Department over how to investigate the Democratic presidential nominee.

Investigators found 650,000 emails on a laptop used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide, and underlying metadata suggests thousands of those messages could have been sent to or from the private server that Mrs. Clinton used while she was secretary of state, according to people familiar with the matter.

It will take weeks, at a minimum, to determine whether those messages are work-related from the time Ms. Abedin served with Mrs. Clinton at the State Department; how many are duplicates of emails already reviewed by the FBI; and whether they include either classified information or important new evidence in the Clinton email probe.

Officials had to await a court order to begin reviewing the emails—which they received over the weekend, according to a person familiar with the matter—because they were uncovered in an unrelated probe of Mr. Weiner.
The FBI had searched the computer while looking for child pornography, people familiar with the matter said

By the time it’s all sorted out, Hillary may well be in a position to make this all “disappear,” which is how the Clintons have survived politically for so long. Corruption “shock & awe” is Bill & Hillary’s business model — a dozen flopping fish are a lot harder to pick up than just one.

Think about it: Anthony Weiner, the husband of the top aide for the Democratic nominee who is herself under federal investigation, is being investigated for (at the very least) sexting underage girls and maybe worse — and some of that contact might have been sent/received through the private server of the then-U.S. secretary of state. Kind of a big deal, no? But don’t expect the MSM to work it all through at least until the general election is over.
