While assailing what he called "the Deep State", Trump did not note that the Justice Department is now run by his appointees.
"That these government docs were on Anthony Weiner's laptop dramatically illustrates the need for the Justice Department to finally do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton's and Huma Abedin's obvious violations of law", Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said about the findings. Abedin used a Yahoo account for much of her official business, including to transmit classified documents and messages. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents, " Trump tweeted in an apparent reference to a report by the conservative Daily Caller. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? It is not certain that Abedin's private email account was actually hacked.
USA media reported on Friday that the State Department released thousands of emails from Abedin found on the laptop of her husband, former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner.More news: Instagram will now include 'recommended posts' in your feeds
In an interview with The New York Times last week, Trump stuck a different tone, saying that he has the "absolute right" to do what he wants with the Justice Department, but that he has chosen to remain uninvolved in the FBI's 2016 investigation of Clinton's use of a private server while Secretary of State.
Yahoo suffered a massive data breach in 2013, which resulted in every email account held by the company being hacked.
Trump recalled the story of Kristian Saucie, a former Navy sailor who was imprisoned for taking pictures of a nuclear power system when on a submarine, suggesting that Clinton and Abedin should suffer the same fate.More news: Winter Weather Advisory issued for forecasted Friday snowfall
Trump's latest tweets pressed familiar arguments for the president, who is set to begin his first full year in office with the victory of tax legislation but the Russian Federation investigation still hanging over his administration.
Trump's blast at the Justice Department came after he returned to the White House from a holiday getaway to face legislative challenges, midterm elections and global threats.More news: CBFC's Prasoon Joshi said only modifications were suggested in 'Padmavati'
