Former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner seemed to get a bit heated when asked about the security clearance of his wife Huma Abedin.
A long-time Hillary Clinton aide, Abedin worked in the State Department and has been involved in the email controversy over then-Secretary of State Clinton’s private email server.
A question by MSNBC’s Kelly O’Donnell set off Weiner, who was attending the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday.
“Do you have any worry there will be a challenge put to Huma Abedin, your wife’s security clearance or her access to classified information after everything that has happened with the private server in the Clinton home?” O’Donnell asked.
“I’m puzzled by this,” Weiner said. “The FBI, the same people that Donald Trump goes around saying did this investigation that found these things about the private server, the same people do the security clearances.”
Weiner, who resigned from Congress in June 2011 after being caught in a sexting scandal, continued the attack on Republican nominee Donald Trump.
“You can’t be the law and order candidate and then piss on the FBI, say the military is horrible, say that all of us have never been worse off, say that the police are doing a terrible job while crime is up,” he said.
