At least 18 more classified emails have been found on the laptop belonging to Huma Abedin’s estranged and incarcerated husband, Anthony Weiner, according to Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Fitton told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Thursday, “It wasn’t just low-level classified materials that were found in the Clinton email server.” The emails were found by the FBI in an account belonging to Abedin, and are only coming to light now thanks to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) filed by Judicial Watch.
Chris Farrell, director of investigations and research for Judicial Watch, further told Fox Business’s Lou Dobbs that the emails “were classified when they were written […] were classified when they were transmitted and they were classified when they were residents on the Weiner laptop.”
BREAKING: Judicial Watch revealed today that there are at least 18 classified emails in the 798 documents recently produced by the State Dept from the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s elicit email system. (1/7)https://t.co/9hdRZNI93l

Based on this new information, Fitton doubled down on the widespread belief that the discovery of the emails should have resulted in a criminal prosecution. “There were highly top secret documents of the most secure type and it would have resulted in a criminal prosecution, I guarantee you, if you were anyone else but the Democratic nominee for president,” he said, adding, “These are classified records that [Former FBI Director] James Comey and his colleagues… knew were on the Weiner laptop, but didn’t take seriously enough to pursue criminal charges against Abedin or Clinton for allowing this egregious abuse of trust that the American people placed in them.”
That the FBI didn’t take the discovery of the classified emails seriously is hardly surprising. Earlier this week, a report from The Hill revealed that the FBI uncovered evidence that Clinton and her team had broken federal law by sending classified emails via a private server, but agents chose to ignore the evidence and protect Clinton from prosecution.
No one should receive special treatment under the law just because of who they are, but that’s unfortunately what happened with Clinton, the FBI and the Department of Justice. The deep state is real, and President Donald Trump is absolutely right: Huma Abedin, and whoever else, should face jail time.
