Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, spent Sunday morning giving interviews about FBI Director James Comey’s decision to make public the new developments in Clinton’s private email server investigation.
And that was bad news for Huma Abedin.
While being questioned by Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Mook dodged questions about Hillary and her top aide.
“I’m asking you a direct question,” the “Fox News Sunday” host posed to Mook. “Has Secretary Clinton asked Huma Abedin what was on that laptop that she shared with her husband Anthony Weiner?”
“There’s credible reporting out there that this came from the laptop of Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin,” he continued. “Why on Earth wouldn’t Hillary Clinton say to her closest personal aide, was there any stuff on your laptop, and what was it?”
“I appreciate your question because people want answers,” Mook responded. “There’s nothing about Huma Abedin in the letter that was sent out.”
“Why wouldn’t Clinton ask anybody? They could be emails from anybody in the world.”
Despite tepidly shielding his coworker on Fox, Mook’s “Meet the Press” interview totally threw Abedin under the bus.
When asked by host Chuck Todd if he is “confident Huma Abedin has been 100 percent forthcoming to [him] and Secretary Clinton,” Mook waffled.
“The Justice Department confirms that she was totally cooperative,” Clinton’s campaign chairman responded.
“I understand that,” Todd added. “I’m talking about you and the campaign. Do you feel as if you have all the facts?”
Despite Todd’s direct question, Mook again reiterated that the Justice Department said that “Huma fully cooperated.”
“That’s why we’re so puzzled right now. Just put the information out there so we can put this to rest.”
