“What ever happened to the Server, at the center of so much Corruption, that the Democratic National Committee REFUSED to hand over to the hard charging (except in the case of Democrats) FBI?” Trump tweeted.

Comey said at the time that the FBI and DNC agreed to let a private firm access the servers and share the findings with investigators.

Trump also targeted Tony Podesta, a longtime D.C. lobbyist who left his firm last year, asking why he hasn’t “been charged and arrested.”

“Is it because he is a VERY well connected Democrat working in the Swamp of Washington, D.C.?” the president tweeted.
