The State Department released emails Friday that investigators found on Anthony Weiner's laptop which were sent from his estranged wife—former top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin—some of which contained classified information.

At least five of the found emails were marked classified, the New York Post reports.

One email from Abedin to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was preparation for a phone call with Prince Saud of Saudi Arabia. The call was intended to warn the Saudis of classified material Bradley Manning had given to Wikileaks and was about to become public.

Most of the content of the emails was heavily redacted when released by the State Department:

"I deeply regret the likely upcoming WikiLeaks disclosure," read one of the talking points.

"This appears to be the result of an illegal act in which a fully cleared intelligence officer stole information and gave it to a website. The person responsible will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law" the message continued.

"This is the kind of information we fear may be released: details of private conversations with your government on Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan."

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton released a statement after the release of the emails.

"This is a major victory. After years of hard work in federal court, Judicial Watch has forced the State Department to finally allow Americans to see these public documents," Fitton said. "It will be in keeping with our past experience that Abedin’s emails on Weiner’s laptop will include classified and other sensitive materials."

"That these government docs were on Anthony Weiner’s laptop dramatically illustrates the need for the Justice Department to finally do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s obvious violations of law."

Judicial Watch has filed numerous lawsuits for official emails found on Clinton's private email server to be made public.
