BREAKING NEWS: President Donald Trump started the New Year with a bang, calling for the arrest and imprisonment of former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin Tuesday morning.
In a tweet, Trump referenced Abein’s use of an unsecured Yahoo email address, even though she knew that was against federal law while she was working for Secretary of State Clinton. In the same tweet, Trump additionally called for a major federal investigation into former FBI director James Comey.
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

Emails sent from Abedin’s Yahoo email account contained sensitive information that she obtained through her position at the State Department.
An FBI report said of Abedin’s email use: “She would use these accounts if her (State) account was down or if she needed to print an email or document. Abedin further explained that it was difficult to print from the DoS system so she routinely forwarded emails to her non-DoS accounts so she could more easily print.”
In his tweet, Trump referenced the former US Navy Sailor who was sent to prison for a year because he took photos while aboard a submarine. As Trump pointed out–why should normal citizens (or U.S. military personnel, for that matter) be held accountable to the law while political elites like Abedin and Clinton are routinely let off the hook?
Trump also took a sizable jab at former FBI director James Comey, implying he would like the Justice Department to probe his behavior while in and out of office.<>
Comey publicly testified in June that he directed the leaking of portions of his private memo’s regarding conversations with Trump to The New York Times. The former FBI director said he directed the leak in order to spark a special counsel investigation into possible collusion between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government.
Ultimately, Trump does have full control of the DOJ. Should he send investigators after Abedin so that she can finally be held accountable?
