On Friday, the State Department released about 3,000 of Abedin's work-related emails.

'Crooked Hillary Clinton's top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents.

The Daily Caller notes that emails containing passwords were forwarded to a private Yahoo account.

In 2013 Yahoo accounts across the board were hacked, throwing the company into damage control mode.

The President used the report on Abedin's email use to suggest that there are members of the "Deep State" in the Justice Department working to protect allies of Hillary Clinton and hurt the Trump administration.

The president referenced the case of a former U.S. Navy Sailor imprisoned for a year after taking photographs while on board a submarine as justification for his imprisonment call.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today said President Trump's call to jail a former aide of Hillary Clinton is an attempt to politicize the Department of Justice.

Comey also revealed a year ago that he had provided one of his memos on his encounters with Trump to The New York Times through a trusted friend to prompt the appointment of a special counsel in the bureau's Russian Federation investigation.

Last month, the State Department released 2,800 emails retained by Abedin and stored in the laptop of her estranged husband, former NY congressman Anthony Weiner-who was slapped with a prison sentence for "sexting" with a 15-year-old girl.

"She would use these accounts if her (State) account was down or if she needed to print an email or document".

Like Clinton, Abedin was never charged for mishandling classified information.

The Daily Caller had the exclusive on Monday about Abedin's Yahoo email forwarding scandal.

In 2016, Comey said that he would not recommend prosecuting Clinton for her actions, but Trump has since publicly cast doubt's on the bureau's conclusion.

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. The emails forwarded, according to the report, included official passwords to government systems.
