A top aide to Hillary Clinton discussed sensitive travel plans on her personal email account, according to new records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.

Huma Abedin, Clinton's former deputy chief of staff and present campaign staffer, made plans for Clinton and her aides from the account she had set up on Clinton's private email server, documents obtained by conservative nonprofit Judicial Watch show.

For example, Abedin emailed colleagues that she was "on a packed train" but offered to discuss the details of a trip to Russia on a call.

Another email shows Abedin used her private account to select a hotel for Clinton on an upcoming trip to Hanoi.

Other records indicate Abedin, like others in Clinton's email network, sent potentially sensitive information using the private server.
