Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal made an appearance on today’s episode of MSNBC’s Morning Joe to give his reaction to FBI Director James Comey‘s testimony to Congress.
Willie Geist asked Bluementhal if Huma Abedin broke the law by sending classified information to her husband Anthony Weiner, now a widely acknowledged sex criminal.
“If there was classified information that was improperly passed to a person unauthorized to receive it. Yes it’s a crime,” Blumenthal replied.
“Without knowing what the intentions were and so forth, there is potentially a (Federal) crime.”
Geist asked the senator if Comey had or had not confirmed that Abedin improperly passed along classified information.
“We need a special prosecutor” to investigate Abedin, replied Blumenthal.
