Trump warned ‘sleazebag’ Weiner was a ‘major security risk’

Donald Trump told you so.

The FBI announced Friday that it was reopening its investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s personal email server after the FBI discovered new emails reportedly during a separate investigation into embattled former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.).

Weiner is under investigation for sending lewd messages to an underage girl. The new messages were found after the FBI seized electronic devices that belonged to Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, a top aide to Clinton, the New York Times reported.

Trump praised the FBI and Department of Justice Friday for “having the courage” to reopen its investigation — but he shouldn’t be surprised that Weiner is somehow involved.

“Huma Abedin, the top aide to Hillary Clinton and the wife of perv sleazebag Anthony Wiener, was a major security risk as a collector of info,” Trump tweeted in August 2015.

Then, his campaign also released a statement in which he praised Abedin for announcing that she would leave Weiner after the latest sexting scandal was uncovered.

Trump said:

I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information. Who knows what he learned and who he told? It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this.

Not much information has yet been released about the FBI’s decision to reopen the case — a point of contention for the Clinton campaign.

“FBI Director [James] Comey should immediately provide the American public more information than is contained in the letter he sent to eight Republican committee chairmen,” said campaign chairman John Podesta in a statement Friday.

He added that the Clinton campaign has “no idea” what emails the FBI has apparently found.
