“Huma [Abedin] put in order 4 video the second Hillary Clinton lied at debate,” a Trump supporter tweeted to Michael Cohen.

Cohen then retweeted the claim to his followers. 

Abedin, a Muslim and a longtime Clinton aide, has occasionally been accused by political opponents of ties to terrorist groups, despite a lack of any known evidence to support such claims.

Cohen earlier slammed the media, saying the terror group was “at this long before Trump run.” 

He then retweeted a series of responses, many of which suggested Clinton or other political opponents of Trump are behind the terror group's video.

Clinton and Trump have been feuding since mid-December about Clinton's claim that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is showing videos of Trump's comments about Muslims to "recruit more radical jihadists."
