President Donald Trump called for the imprisonment of former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin Tuesday morning.
Trump referenced Abedin’s use of an un-secure Yahoo email address — as first reported by The Daily Caller News Foundation — and also called for an investigation into former FBI director James Comey Sunday.
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

According to TheDCNF’s Luke Rosiak, Abedin’s yahoo email address contained official emails forwarded from her state department account before all Yahoo addresses were hacked.
“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,” an FBI report said of Abedin’s email use.
The president referenced the case of a former U.S. Navy Sailor imprisoned for a year after taking photographs while on board a submarine as justification for his imprisonment call. Trump also took aim 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.
