Trump: Why didn't DNC hand over hacked server to FBI?

President Trump went after Democrats in a pair of tweets Sunday morning, questioning why the Democratic National Committee (DNC) didn't hand over a hacked server to the FBI.

"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. 

Then-FBI Director James Comey said last year that the DNC had denied the bureau's requests to examine the breached servers.

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. 

Podesta, whose brother, John Podesta, led Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, left the lobbying firm he founded after special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly began investigating the lobbyist and Podesta Group.
