Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Was published today i want to ask you about the hillary clinton emails that were found on avenue wieners computer clinton's aide huma abedin had backed up her files on her husband anthony weiner's computer so in a separate investigation into anthony weiner those emails between huma abedin and hillary clinton were discovered or nathanael wieners computer and eleven days before the election you notified congress that those emails were discovered and now you had to investigate what was said in them andrew mccabe who was then the fbi as deputy director had been told about these emails by the new york office about three weeks before your announcement when did you find out did mccabe tell you as soon as he knew somebody told me and i think it was andrew mccabe and i'm not certain of that with someone at the fbi told me i think in the first week of october that there may be some connection between anthony weiner's laptop that was seized in a criminal case in new york and the year investigation which was the codename that the fbi had for the clinton email investigation i don't remember that conversation clearly an and that makes sense to me because how on earth could there be a connection between anthony weiner is laptop and the clinton investigation and so i don't remember it clearly i remember clearly that andrew mccabe emailed me at five thirty in the morning on october twenty seventh telling me that the midyear team needed to meet with me and later that morning the team told me that.

Coming up next
