(National Sentinel) Justice Deserved: President Donald J. Trump on Tuesday slammed “Crooked Hillary” aide Huma Abedin and appeared to call on the “Deep State” Justice Department to act following new revelations she may have mishandled classified emails.
“Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on the submarine? Jail!” Trump tweeted early Tuesday. “Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others.”
The president was making a reference to U.S. Navy sailor Kristian Saucier who was jailed after taking unauthorized cell phone photos inside a nuclear submarine. Trump appeared to be suggesting that a double standard was being employed against the sailor and Hillary Clinton, Abedin and others involved in mishandling classified data.
Fox News reported further:
The president’s tweet comes after the State Department, in a Friday news dump, released a batch of emails from Abedin’s account that were discovered by the FBI on a laptop belonging to her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner. At least four of the documents were marked “classified.”
As reported by the UK’s Daily Mail, the group Judicial Watch had filed suit to obtain the documents from the State Department. The group’s president, Tom Fitton, speculated in October that the laptop likely contained classified information.
At least five emails determined to be classified were found among 2,800 documents stored on a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, whose then-wife Huma Abedin was deputy chief of staff to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The State Department released its documents Friday afternoon. They included eight pages that were classified at the “confidential level,” the third-most sensitive level established by the U.S. government.
Comey exonerated Clinton in July 2016 despite the fact that FBI agents had discovered evidence she mishandled classified information. He reopened the case in late October after agents found classified emails on a laptop belonging to Abedin’s now-estranged husband, former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner.
Comey told lawmakers during a congressional hearing earlier this year that he believed Abedin forwarded emails to Weiner for him to print out so that she could give them to Clinton.
