The FBI announced Friday it had uncovered news emails related to its investigation of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton‘s handling of classified information while conducting a separate investigation into the pervy sexting habits of former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner. Weiner of course is the estranged husband of Hillary’s closest aide, Huma Abedin who herself figures prominently in Clinton’s email scandals.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump saw this coming from a mile away, fingering Weiner as a potential national security threat all the way back in August of 2015. “It came out that Huma Abedin knows all about Hillary’s private illegal emails,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Huma’s PR husband, Anthony Weiner, will tell the world.”
Abedin recently announced the couple’s separation after Weiner became embroiled in a new series of embarrassing online sexting scandals, including one allegedly involving an underage girl that prompted the FBI to investigate.

One month earlier, Trump said he didn’t like the thought of “Huma going home at night and telling Anthony Weiner all of these secrets.”

Trump was sounding the alarm about Weiner as early September 2013, when he wrote that Huma should “dump the sicko Weiner” because he was “a calamity who is bringing her down with him.”

When Abedin announced her separation from Weiner in August 2016, Trump accused Hillary Clinton of being “careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information.”
Trump suggested that Weiner may have compromised America’s national security as a result of his pervy proclivities. “Who knows what he learned and who he told? It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgment,” Trump said. “It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this.”
He’s been saying it for a while.
Pervert alert. @RepWeiner is back on twitter. All girls under the age of 18, block him immediately.
