Time to throw Weiner ‘under the bus’? Dem senator calls for special prosecutor to probe Abedin emails

Huma Abedin’s problems stemming from her marriage to pervert, and former senator, Anthony Weiner continue to mount.

And it is no longer only Republicans that have their sights set on the former top aide to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Connecticut Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he wanted a special prosecutor to investigate Abedin, after FBI Director James Comey confirmed to the Senate on Wednesday that Abedin emailed classified information to her husband’s laptop.

“If there was classified information and it was improperly passed to a person unauthorized to receive it, yes, naturally it’s a crime,” he told host Joe Scarborough. “Without knowing what the intentions were and so forth, there is potentially a prosecutable crime.”

He said it’s possible that Abedin could still be prosecuted for the crime.

“It still may be, potentially. It’s not outside the statute of limitations, so far as I know. It’s one that the Department of Justice is going to have to decide,” the senator said. “The question is: who will decide it? That’s why we need a special prosecutor to review all of this investigative material.”

Democrat Krystal Ball said that it proves her party is not “reflexively partisan” and are willing to look into wrongdoing.

But Eboni Williams wondered if Democrats were simply willing to sacrifice Abedin and Weiner because the latter has been an embarrassment to the party.

“I will happily throw Anthony Weiner under the bus,” Ball said.
