Trump wants 'Deep State Justice Dept' to probe Huma Abedin

The president's reference Tuesday to "Deep State Justice Dept" suggests that federal law enforcement is part of an entrenched bureaucracy that Trump and his supporters say didn't want him to be elected and is actively working to undermine his presidency.

"Crooked Hillary Clinton's top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols", he wrote on Twitter.

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. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. The FBI discovered those emails while investigating Weiner for sexting with a minor.

Trump's reference to sailors likely referred to a Navy sailor convicted of taking photos of classified areas inside a submarine. The emails forwarded, according to the report, included official passwords to government systems.

Weiner is serving a 21-month prison sentence after his conviction for sending illicit text messages to a 15-year-old girl. It is not certain that Abedin's private email account was actually hacked.

Donald Trump slams Pakistan for 'lies', 'deceit'
He said all funds from the U.S. had been "properly audited" and that "services (were) rendered". It was not immediately clear why Trump opted to tweet on Pakistan.

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.

Abedin reportedly used the Yahoo address [email protected] to be able to print documents more easily.

Abedin is a longtime Trump target, and he attacked her for being a "security risk" during the 2016 campaign. "Huma's PR husband, Anthony Weiner, will tell the world", Trump tweeted in August 2015, before he won the GOP nomination and Clinton became the Democratic nominee.

He also did not specify what should be done about former FBI Director James Comey, whom he fired in May; Comey later said Trump dismissed him because he refused to squelch the FBI's Russian Federation investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
