President Trump on Tuesday seemed to require the Justice Department to “act” on previous Hillary Clinton guide Huma Abedin and previous FBI
Director James Comey.
“Screwy Hillary Clinton’s best guide, Huma Abedin, has been blamed for slighting essential security protocols,” Trump tweeted.
Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others

“She put Classified Passwords under the control of outside agents. Keep in mind mariners pictures on submarine? Prison! Deep State Justice Dept should finally act? Additionally on Comey and others”
Trump gave off an impression of being alluding to a report in The Daily Caller that said Abedin had sent State Department messages to her own Yahoo account.
Those emails, according to that report, included passwords to government systems and were forwarded to her personal account before a breach at Yahoo affected every customer account.
A month ago, the State Department published parts of 2,800 emails and different archives having a place with Abedin that were recuperated by the FBI in 2016 on Abedin’s repelled spouse Anthony Weiner’s PC.
Trump last year fired Comey from his job at the FBI. Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee shortly afterward, at which time he said Trump had asked for his loyalty during a January dinner at the White House. He also testified that Trump pressured him during an Oval Office meeting in February to end the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Trump has disputed both claims.
Comey also revealed last year that he had provided one of his memos on his encounters with Trump to The New York Times through a trusted friend to prompt the appointment of a special counsel in the bureau’s Russia investigation.
Afterward, Trump in a tweet branded Comey as a “leaker.”
Whistleblower and ethics lawyers, however, said that Comey’s release of the memo was a carefully orchestrated act that appeared designed to shield him from any legal repercussions.
