The president reacted to the news that Abedin had emailed State Department passwords to a private Yahoo account.
"Crooked Hillary Clinton's top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols", he wrote. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents, " Trump tweeted in an apparent reference to a report by the conservative Daily Caller. The article said Abedin forwarded some government passwords to her private Yahoo email account in 2009, when Clinton was secretary of state.
It wasn't known to the public until 2016 that Yahoo suffered from multiple major data breaches by a "state-sponsor actor" and that over 1 billion accounts were affected between 2013-2015.
Trump's "deep state" comment suggests the Justice Department is composed of powerful interests working to undermine him. Remember sailors pictures on submarine?
Trump suggested that Abedin has not been properly punished for her email use and has been protected by members of the "Deep State" in the Justice Department. "Also on [former FBI Director James] Comey & others". The FBI found the emails on Weiner's laptop, and at least four of them were labeled "classified".
Two arrested in murder of lesbian couple, children in NY
Two people have been arrested in the "horrific" murder of two women and a pair of children in their home in upstate NY . During the emotional press conference, one attendee spoke up to say: "I was the coach of that young man".
In his Twitter post, Trump also referred to the case of a Navy sailor who was jailed for taking pictures inside a military submarine.
"She would use these accounts if her (State) account was down or if she needed to print an email or document". One email that was forwarded to Abedin's Yahoo account was sent by Clinton ally Sid Blumenthal.
President Donald Trump accused the Justice Department Tuesday of being part of the "deep state" and urged prosecution against a top aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey.
A U.S. District Court judge in August ordered that the State Department re-open its investigation into Clinton's emails, and to search for anything written about the Benghazi attack in 2012 that might be contained on the State Department's email server, state.gov. Four Americans, including the US ambassador to Libya, were killed during the September 11, 2012, attack.
As he remains shadowed by the special counsel's Russia investigation, Trump has seized on recent revelations of anti-Trump behavior by some FBI officials, including some who once worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, to claim bias against him.
