FBI is still holding Huma Abedin's emails

By Nathan Rousseau Smith, Buzz60

It has been weeks since the presidential election and the FBI is still holding onto Huma Abedin's emails found on Anthony Weiner's computer.

A justice department lawyer speaking to a federal judge said Abedin's 650,000 emails have not been handed over to the state department and that there's no time frame for doing so.

Commenting on the news, the judge expressed shock at how empty his courtroom was compared to when the email scandal was a hot topic.

In October, with less than two weeks until the election, FBI director James Comey revealed the email discovery while conducting an investigation into Weiner's alleged sexting habits.

The emails did not result in any criminal charges for Hillary Clinton, but Clinton blames the incident for being one of the reasons she lost the election.

The state department will continue releasing on a monthly basis batches of the Clinton emails recovered from her private email server.
