Vice President Joe Biden is “not a big fan” of former congressman Anthony Weiner.
Biden, discussing the FBI’s examination into newly discovered emails relating to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server, said FBI Director James Comey should release the emails connected to the probe. The FBI discovered emails on a device belonging to Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband, Weiner, who is under investigation for allegedly exchanging sexually explicit text messages with an underage girl.
“I think Hillary—if she said, what I’m told she said, is correct—that she release the emails for the whole world to see,” Biden told CNN’s Michael Smerconish. “And it doesn’t mean anything. It’s unfortunate.”
When asked about Weiner’s involvement in the email, Biden said he shouldn’t comment.
“I’m not a big fan,” he said. “I wasn’t before he got in trouble. So I shouldn’t comment on Anthony Weiner.”
Abedin and Weiner separated over the summer after the former Democratic congressman was embroiled in another sexting scandal. Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 after it was reported he sent lewd photos to women on several occasions.
