Trump accuses Clinton aide Abedin of sharing info with Weiner

Donald Trump on Friday trained his fire on longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner.
The presumptive GOP presidential nominee accused Abedin of sharing sensitive information with Weiner (D-N.Y.) as he attacked Clinton, a former secretary of State and the Democratic presidential front-runner, for putting the country “at risk.”

“That’s the way life works, she goes home, she tells him everything. Who the hell wants that? It’s not right.”
Trump referenced Weiner’s fall from grace, when he was caught sending inappropriate messages to other women via Twitter. The scandal cost him his House seat, and later torpedoed his attempt to run for mayor of New York City.
“I know Anthony Weiner, I don’t want him knowing anything. And I never ever want him to tweet me. Does anybody want him to tweet? I didn’t think so.”
Weiner appeared to respond on Twitter as Trump spoke:

Investigations into Clinton’s email server found that the server contained information that had since been classified, including in 140 emails from Abedin. But there have never been any accusations levied against her for sharing information with Weiner, outside of those by Trump. 
He first levied the charge last summer, where he assailed Abedin and her “perv” husband. 
The Clinton campaign fought back, with spokesman Nick Merrill tweeting that there’s “no place for patently false, personal attacks towards a staff member.”
“He should be ashamed of himself, and others in his own party should take a moment to stand up to him and draw the line for once,” Merrill said.
