Political analyst Irina Alksnis described Adedin as "one of the most interesting and mysterious people in Hillary Clinton's entourage," who has been at the center of numerous scandals in recent years.
Earlier, Abedin, vice-chairwoman of Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, swore under oath that she handed over all devices that contained classified information to law enforcement authorities.
The FBI has not disclosed whether these messages contain top secret data, but political analyst Daniel McAdams, Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, told RT that "they may well contain classified" information.
"The contents of the emails are unknown, but the sheer fact of 'a bomb exploding' eleven days before the election has given [Clinton's] adversaries an opportunity to use the issue to the maximum and ask questions as to how and why Hillary's electronic mail was on [Weiner's computer] and how Huma and her husband used it," Alksnis said.
The analyst suggested that it will be hard for Abedin to remain Hillary's right hand woman in light of recent scandals.
Adedin has worked alongside Hillary Clinton since 1996 when she was assigned to the First Lady's office as an intern. She had been expected to make a shortlist for White House chief of staff if Hillary wins the presidential election next week.
The Institute publishes the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, with Huma Abedin serving as an assistant editor until 2008. The New York Post recently described the journal as a "radical Muslim publication" which ostensibly "opposed women's rights and blamed the US for 9/11." Critics have said that the media outlet's conclusion was not based on thorough research.
