Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin leave court in New York.
Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s aide and frontal lobe, is known for her steely poise, especially in the face of work pressure and public embarrassment, like whenever her husband’s text message-driven philandering has come to light. Unfortunately, that’s happened a lot. The poise was there when her husband resigned from Congress, and on her boss’s campaign trail. It was there in written form in the Clinton campaign’s leaked e-mails. It was in Weiner, the documentary that covered her husband’s sexting scandals and his failed mayoral campaign.
And now it’s there in divorce court. On May 19, Anthony Weiner pled guilty to federal obscenity charges after texting with a 15-year-old, and then, hours after, Abedin filed for divorce. During the Wednesday hearing, however, all seemed relatively well. Justice Michael Katz praised Weiner and Abedin’s stated desire to “resolve this amicably,” and encouraged them to work at as much as possible through lawyer arbitration.
Abedin’s representation, Amy Donehower, requested that the proceedings be sealed with an Anonymous versus Anonymous case title for the sake of their son, according to the New York Post. That would mean the case would play out in a private courtroom with private entrances. Judge Katz responded, in what might be the understatement of the year, “I appreciate the parties’ request to keep this as quiet as possible, but as a practical matter, it does not appear to me that despite your attempt to have this be anonymous, it’s particularly anonymous.” His ruling on that will arrive over the course of the days.
She and Weiner reportedly sat together during their hearing Wednesday, and reportedly chatted amicably. In a Daily News video, Weiner appears to be posing for photos, making a joke about personal injury lawsuits with photographers, and says farewell with confirming that he’s doing well. “Thank you, yes. Bless you guys,” he said. Abedin simply walked in, and offered no comment.
