Huma Abedin could 'clarify' the latest email issue

NY Times Editorial:

Emails Again, This Time With Anthony Weiner

James Comey’s failure to provide specifics about a new, potentially important development, less than two weeks before Election Day, is confounding.
When asked what Huma Abedin told her about the latest email controversy, Hillary Clinton ignored the question.   It is reasonable to conclude that she ignored the question because her answer would not be helpful to her campaign.

Still, there is nothing stopping Abedin from holding her own press conference and answering questions about what was on the computer.  That is something completely within her control.  If she concludes that doing so would put her in legal jeopardy she could always take the 5th Amendment like several other people involved in the email controversy.  But if she did so then Clinton demand of the FBI to disclose what they know would really ring hollow.

The problem here is not Comey's "failure to provide specifics."  The failure is that of Clinton and Abedin.
