Judicial Watch says newly-obtained documents show examples of former Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin, using a nonsecure account to transmit classified information.

In a statement the conservative watchdog group said, "The documents included 91 Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 530 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, 'as far as she knew,' all of her government emails had been turned over to the State Department."

One example cited by Judicial Watch happened on April 23, 2010.

"Abedin tried to set up a secure call for Clinton with Dennis (last name unknown), but it didn't connect, and Clinton said, 'We've now tried twice to go secure and lost both calls.' After Abedin tells her she had tested the secure line, Clinton says, 'We finally gave up and talked in code nonsecure,'" according to Judicial Watch.

The emails also show the inner workings of Clinton's State Department, according to Judicial Watch.

"On April 18, 2009, Abedin told Senior Adviser Philippe Reines that Clinton had 'an encounter' with Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, who 'complimented wjc (Bill Clinton,) said he hoped she would come to Venezuela, she said she hoped so too,'" the watchdog group noted.

"Reines expressed concern, saying 'Was the encounter on camera or widely seen?' Abedin responds: 'Seen by a dozen people. A photog came in and took a photo at the end.' Reines replies, 'Who went up to whom?'"

And Judicial Watch said the emails also reveal "numerous examples" of Clinton Foundation donors receiving special favors from the former secretary of state's staff.

"On April 12, 2009, Miguel Lausell, a Puerto Rican telecom executive who reportedly donated $1 million to the Clinton Presidential Library and was a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, made a request of Abedin through Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band to push for the appointment of someone to become U.S. ambassador to the Dominican Republic," the group said.

"Lausell concludes: "I will be in DC from the 7th to the 9th and would like if possible to say hello to Hillary."

And the Washington Examiner reported that while Judicial Watch has pursued emails from Clinton for years, it believes the organization from the Trump Justice Department.

"Pay to play, classified information mishandling, influence peddling, cover ups — these new emails show why the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's conduct must be resumed. The Trump Justice Department and FBI need to reassure the American people they have finally stopped providing political protection to Hillary Clinton," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton noted.
