Biden on Weiner: ‘I’m not a big fan’
Washington (CNN) Vice President Joe Biden is “not a big fan” of disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner.
In a wide-ranging interview with CNN’s Michael Smerconish — in which Biden also discussed life after the vice presidency, the Supreme Court and Donald Trump — the vice president said FBI Director James Comey should release the newly discovered emails that are connected to the bureau’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s private server.
Law enforcement sources told CNN Friday that a probe into Weiner triggered the review of the emails. The FBI and the New York Police Department have opened preliminary investigations of allegations that Weiner exchanged sexually explicit text messages with a purportedly underage girl.
“I think Hillary — if she said, what I’m told she said, is correct — release the emails. For the whole world to see,” Biden said in the interview, a portion of which was released Friday night.
“To the best of my knowledge, it won’t prejudice the investigation, but that’s the stilted language the agency always uses,” he continued. “And it doesn’t mean anything. It’s unfortunate.”
Weiner, the former Democratic representative from New York, recently separated from top Clinton aide Huma Abedin in light of the sexting incident over the summer.
When asked about Weiner’s involvement in the emails, Biden said he didn’t want to comment.
“Well, oh God, Anthony Weiner,” Biden said. “I should not comment on Anthony Weiner. I’m not a big fan. I wasn’t before he got in trouble. So I shouldn’t comment on Anthony Weiner.”
When asked if the renewed Clinton email controversy made Biden regret not running for president, he defended his decision to stay out of the election.
