Some People Just Won't Grow Up
I'm kind of surprised that Anthony Weiner once again showed phenomenal disrespect to his family by playing around online in a sexual manner, but I wouldn't say that I'm shocked. He doesn't seem to appreciate why his behavior is unacceptable and hurtful to his spouse, and while it certainly isn't my business, I do think the separation is probably for the best; it isn't Huma Abedin's problem that he's a creep--it's his problem that he's a creep.
That said, it certainly isn't a Clinton campaign issue, as such. Although Clinton is responsible for her staff in some respects, she can hardly be responsible for her staff's spouses. I don't know what the heck Donald Trump is talking about by implying that somehow, Weiner had some kind of clearance via his wife's job, but it seems to me that Weiner is sending crotch-shots and lewd sexts, not selling secrets to the Russians. It's just nonsensical.
