Donald Trump may have been the least surprised to learn about FBI Director James Comey’s bombshell announcement Friday — 11 days before the election — that the bureau is reviewing new emails related to Hillary Clinton’s personal server.
Turns out, the GOP nominee called it months ago.
The FBI discovered new emails on devices seized during an investigation of disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, NBC News reported — it appears that Weiner and wife Huma Abedin, who figures prominently in the Clinton email probe, may have shared a laptop.
Abedin, a longtime loyal Clinton aide, separated from Weiner in August after additional sexting incidents involving her estranged husband became known, including reports he was interacting with an underage girl.
Trump was never shy about commenting on Weiner’s perverted behavior, saying on social media back in 2013 that “Huma should dump the sicko Weiner” because he’s “a calamity that is bringing her down with him.”
But he also saw the national security implications, considering Abedin’s close relationship with Clinton.
Here are two related tweets from August 2015:
It came out that Huma Abedin knows all about Hillary’s private illegal emails. Huma’s PR husband, Anthony Weiner, will tell the world.

Even more on target was Trump’s reaction when Abedin said she was leaving her husband, when Trump tied events back to his rival’s “bad judgment,” saying it’s “possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised.”
“Huma is making a very wise decision. I know Anthony Weiner well, and she will be far better off without him,” Trump said in a statement.
“I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information,” he continued. “Who knows what he learned and who he told? It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgment.”
Bing, bing, bing.
