President Trump called on Huma Abedin, a former Clinton aide, Tuesday to be jailed for allegedly giving out classified information.

“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,” Mr. Trump tweeted.

Reports over the weekend showed Ms. Abedin forwarded emails that included passwords to government systems to her Yahoo email account before millions of Yahoo accounts were hacked. The emails were released as part of a Judicial Watch lawsuit.

Mr. Trump also mentioned former FBI Director James B. Comey in his tweet saying that he too needs to be looked into for his actions in the Clinton email case. Mr. Comey drafted a letter clearing Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, of any wrongdoing prior to the investigation’s completion in 2016.
