Clinton aide Huma Abedin said she doesn't know how emails got on her husband's computer


Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton's top aides, has told people she doesn't know how her emails could have ended up on her husband Anthony Weiner's computer, The Washington Post reports, citing an anonymous source.

Abedin said she did not use the computer regularly, and when she turned her emails over to the State Department for investigation, her lawyers didn't search it, assuming nothing would be there.

Investigators found thousands of messages on Weiner's computer that could be related to the Clinton email investigation, but it is not yet clear if they are relevant.

FBI director James Comey said on Friday his agency would take "appropriate investigative steps" to determine if the messages on Weiner's computer were classified or otherwise important. Some officials told the Post the messages may be duplicates of existing emails.

I wonder is she going to keep Huma? Huma has been a problem. I wonder: Is Huma going to stay there?
Donald Trump, referring to Clinton

Trump has continued to attack Clinton for this incident. He has also criticized Weiner, whom he has called "a major sleaze."

Weiner is under investigation for allegedly sending lewd messages to a teen girl.

Clinton's campaign has tried to dismiss the new round of email investigations.
