A spokesman for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has thrown cold water on comments New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner made about her potential 2016 campaign.
"I do," Weiner said when asked if he knew how Abedin, an aide to Clinton since the Former First Lady's White House days, would factor into a 2016 presidential run. "I'm not telling you."
Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill denied having any idea what Weiner could have been referencing, Politico reports.
“We have absolutely no clue what he was talking about,” Merrill said, according to Politico. “Maybe his campaign does. Doubt it though.”
Weiner said Monday he believed his multiple sexting controversies have hurt Abedin, who spoke out in defense of her husband during a July 23 conference.
"I feel that what I have done has hurt her, yeah," Weiner said. "It's hurt her professionally, it's hurt her personally."
