President Donald Trump slammed Hillary Clinton’s top aid Huma Abedin over reports that she forwarded top secret passwords to unsecured personal email accounts, which were then hacked by foreign agents.
“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! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others,” President Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

Abedin forwarded sensitive State Department emails to her insecure Yahoo email accounts, which were later hacked by foreign actors. Russian agents were reportedly among the foreign nationals that hacked Abedin’s emails, the GP reports.
Via Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller:
Huma Abedin forwarded sensitive State Department emails, including passwords to government systems, to her personal Yahoo email account before every single Yahoo account was hacked, a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of emails released as part of a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch shows.
The U.S. later charged Russian intelligence agent Igor Sushchin with hacking 500 million Yahoo email accounts. The initial hack occurred in 2014 and allowed his associates to access accounts into 2015 and 2016 by using forged cookies. Sushchin also worked for the Russian investment bank Renaissance Capital, which paid former President Bill Clinton $500,000 for a June 2010 speech in Moscow. […]
Long-time Clinton confidante Sid Blumenthal sent Clinton an email in July 2009 with the subject line: “Important. Not for circulation. You only. Sid.” The email began “CONFIDENTIAL… Re: Moscow Summit.” Abedin forwarded the email to her Yahoo address, potentially making it visible to hackers.
Revelations of Abedin’s email activities came after a long awaited ‘doc dump,’ by the U.S. State Department last Friday, which released a portion of the files found on disgraced former Democrat Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop seized by federal authorities. At least five emails found on Weiner’s laptop contained classified information.
