The emails were mostly redacted and were among documents found on Weiner’s computer during an FBI probe last year.

Weiner is Abedin’s ex-husband.

The release was part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the conservative legal organization Judicial Watch, according to CNN, which sought to obtain "all emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-'state.gov' email address."

The FBI conducted an investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state and had previously said that a number of Abedin’s emails were backed up on Weiner’s laptop, CNN reported.
