NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Clinton Emails-Unproven!
Summary of eRumor:
NYPD sources have signaled that new evidence uncovered on another computer owned by Anthony Weiner will lead to charges against Hillary Clinton and her allies, including money laundering, child sex crimes, child exploitation, pay to play and perjury.
Claims about an “NYPD bombshell” in the Hillary Clinton email case are based on unidentified rumors and are unfounded.
About a week after FBI Director James Comey announced that the FBI would re-open its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server after additional emails were found on a computer used by Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin’s estranged husband, fringe websites began reporting that a new “NYPD bombshell” would blow the case wide open.
Rumors about the NYPD bombshell appear to have started with a story at fringe right wing website True Pundit on November 2nd that begins:
New York Police Department detectives and prosecutors working an alleged underage sexting case against former Congressman Anthony Weiner have turned over a newly-found laptop he shared with wife Huma Abedin to the FBI with enough evidence “to put Hillary (Clinton) and her crew away for life,” NYPD sources told True Pundit.
NYPD sources said Clinton’s “crew” also included several unnamed yet implicated members of Congress in addition to her aides and insiders.
The NYPD seized the computer from Weiner during a search warrant and detectives discovered a trove of over 500,000 emails to and from Hillary Clinton, Abedin and other insiders during her tenure as secretary of state. The content of those emails sparked the FBI to reopen its defunct email investigation into Clinton on Friday.
The story was quickly picked up by other fringe websites, and a full-blown conspiracy theory was born. There’s no way for us (or anyone else) to fact-check the story, however, because it cites anonymous sources.
True Pundit was been behind numerous conspiracy theories about the Clintons. Earlier in the campaign, True Pundit was behind unfounded rumors that Hillary Clinton used a secret earpiece during a debate with Donald Trump. Again, the story relied on unnamed sources and “buzz” in the New York law enforcement community.
And again, there’s no way to definitively prove whether this story is true or false.
