What does the captioned phrase mean?

President Obama implied that his F.B.I. director’s decision to alert Congress about the discovery of new emails related to the Hillary Clinton server case violated investigative norms and trafficked in innuendo.

I think he meant that the director alerted the discovery of new emails, but they may or may not be relevant, so it wasn't certain, but he was passing along innuendo because people drew their own conclusions.

Sorry, that's a hard one to explain.
