Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has invoked long-disputed conspiracy theories to suggest Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide of Indian descent, had links to Islamic extremists. Other Republicans have been less subtle, demanding in the past an investigation of those links, going so far as to allege she is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt. Abedin, who served Clinton as her deputy chief of staff at the state department, has been under attack from Republicans for her role in her boss’s use of a private email server.

Trump invoked those same theories in the interview on Monday to suggest, without saying it in as many words unlike others who have been more direct, that Abedin was linked to extremism.
