Weiner pulled out! Abedin pulled out too! Everyone pulled out from the divorce that Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner had filed. Lawyers of the former power couple, who found themselves in the midst of a heated sexting scandal, submit identical statements from their lawyers. The documentation is reported to suggest that the couple is staying together, on paper, to protect their child from the court. They also indicate that they will settle the differences outside of the court. Others think they're doing this for more shady reasons, such as to protect each other from testifying in anything related to Hillary, Russia, themselves, or the DNC.
They can't be compelled to testify against one another if they're still technically married. It's called spousal immunity, and the pair could be protected by it as long as they remain married. If any legal cases would have required one of them to testify against the other, then this likely forbid that from happening. This is what many experts believe is the actual reason for pulling out of the divorce and remain married.
The pullout game comes after President Trump suggested that the Department of Justice investigates Huma Abedin for her alleged role in keeping classified emails on Anthony Weiner's laptop. If they're both protected by spousal immunity, then I believe it's by law that they cannot testify against each other to reveal any confidential information shared between them.
Page Six reports:?
"President Trump last week urged the Justice Department to investigate Abedin for keeping classified emails on Weiner’s laptop.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aid [sic], Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents,” the president tweeted. “Remember sailors [sic] pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act?”
New York law states that a husband or wife can’t be “required to disclose a confidential communication made by one or the other during the marriage.”
Can a judge force them to testify against each other in a case that involves confidential or classified information? Should there be another law that says a married couple can speak against the other if classified information is included and national security could be at risk?
What will President Trump do if Abedin and Weiner can't speak about each other in court? Will there be something new signed into action that removes that New York rule?
