Huma's Lawyer Makes First Public Statement, Blames Weiner

In her first public statement since Friday's FBI bombshell, the lawyer for top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, Karen Dunn of Boies, Schiller said Monday that Abedin did not know that her emails were on a computer that belonged to her estranged husband, disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner.

In a statement on Monday night, Dunn, a former lawyer in the Obama White House and a former communications director for Clinton’s Senate office, said that Abedin "only learned for the first time on Friday, from press reports, of the possibility that a laptop belonging to Mr. Weiner could contain emails of hers."

“She only learned for the first time on Friday, from press reports, of the possibility that a laptop belonging to Mr. Weiner could contain emails of hers. While the FBI has not contacted us about this, Ms. Abedin will continue to be, as she always has been, forthcoming and cooperative,” Dunn said in her statement.

“From the beginning, Ms. Abedin has complied fully and voluntarily with State Department and law enforcement requests, including sitting for hours-long interviews and providing her work-related and potentially work-related documents,” lawyer Karen Dunn said in a statement Monday night.

Dunn said that the FBI had not contacted them about the issue, though she added that "Ms. Abedin will continue to be, as she always has been, forthcoming and cooperative."

"Ms. Abedin's willing cooperation has been praised by Members of Congress and law enforcement officials alike," Dunn said.

Meanwhile, as Hillary Clinton continues her last week campaign rounds across America, Huma is keeping a low profile. A campaign source told the Post Abedin has been seen at Clinton’s Brooklyn headquarters since the news broke, working as usual.
