In a photo that is reportedly showing her using marijuana and cocaine, a former aide to Hillary Clinton allegedly told a police officer that she used “some pills” and “some cocaine.”
The photo, which has since been deleted, was reportedly taken by a member of the public at the high school where Huma Abedin worked in the district of Washington, D.C., and posted on Instagram on Thursday.
The police department said that it is investigating the image, which it posted on its Twitter account, as a possible violation of department policy.
A post on the department’s Facebook page says that it “is working with the D.J.I.C.P. to ensure that the person who posted the picture does not pose a threat to public safety.”
“This person was asked to delete the image and did so,” the post says.
Abedin was not immediately available for comment.
A spokesperson for the Davenport police department declined to comment.
On Friday, the department posted a message to the community that said that the department was aware of the photo and “we are reviewing the matter.”
The Davenford Police Department said that there is currently no investigation into the alleged incident.
“The information in the police report was not credible and is now being reviewed,” it said in a statement.
A member of Congress from the Dactyls, the district in Washington, said in March that the image of Abedin’s alleged drug use was an example of how she was treating herself to drugs.
In a letter sent to Congress on Thursday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is investigating her use of a private email account while she served as the nation’s top diplomat, said that an unnamed police officer interviewed by the committee said that Abedin was in possession of drugs and prescription pills.
She added that the officer told the congresswoman that Abedin told him she smoked marijuana and that she was taking cocaine and prescribed prescription drugs.
The Dactylls tweeted the image that was posted on their Instagram page on Thursday and asked people to share it.
“This is a photo of Huma Abedin that shows her smoking cocaine and/or prescription pills, but it was taken at her high school,” the tweet said.
“Abedin is a well-known advocate for our community and her behavior has been nothing short of disgusting.”
Abedin is currently serving a 30-day prison sentence for a federal felony for using a private account to conduct official business while she was secretary of state.
Her husband, Anthony Weiner, was indicted last month on charges of sexting a minor and transmitting obscene material to a minor.
He is currently awaiting trial on those charges.
