There must be a force field surrounding the Clintons and their hangers-on that protects them from the law.
Just ask Huma Abedin.
FBI Director James Comey revealed in testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee today that his agency was investigating Hillary Clinton’s close aide after she forwarded Hillary’s classified emails to her husband, Anthony Weiner, to print out.
In a line of questioning by Sen. John Kennedy, Comey said the FBI closed its investigation into Abedin after concluding she had no idea what she was doing was in violation of the law.

“Huma Abedin appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding emails to him for him, I think to print out for her so she could then deliver them to the Secretary of State,” Comey said.
Comey didn’t know if Weiner read the “classified material.”
“I don’t think so,” Comey said, searching for an answer. “I don’t think we’ve been able to interview him because he has pending criminal problems of other sorts,” referring to allegations he exchanged dirty messages with an underage girl.
Comey told Kennedy Weiner would have “potentially” committed a crime if he had read the emails, and that Abedin would have “potentially” committed one as well for sending them.
“Is there an investigation with respect to the two of them?” Kennedy asked.
“There was, it — we completed it,” Comey said.
When asked why the FBI concluded neither of them committed a crime, Comey responded, “With respect to Ms. Abedin, we didn’t have any indication that she had a sense that what she was doing was in violation of the law.
With Kennedy staring at him, Comey added, “Couldn’t prove any sort of criminal intent.”
Question: How many Americans are prosecuted annually for crimes they had no idea they were committing, or had no “intent” to break the law?
