Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney of New York dropped the hammer on Tuesday by demanding the imprisonment of failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, fired FBI Director James Comey, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
She is also calling for the two anti-Trump FBI agents, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, to also face the music.
In an email sent out to her supports, Tenney created a petition calling on Americans to support her goal of draining the swamp in Washington, D.C. and holding those accountable for their actions.

Tenney was one of 11 Republicans in the House of Representatives who signed a letter calling on the Department of Justice and FBI to launch an investigation into these individuals for their actions during the 2016 presidential election.
The allegations leveled against each person varied: Clinton for the anti-Trump dossier; Comey for allowing Clinton to skirt charges after admitting she broke the law; McCabe for his “lack of candor” and leaking to the press; and Lynch for her involvement in the Uranium One scandal.
Her email goes beyond allegations, she boldly asks supporters to sign a petition in favor of the investigation by pressing a button blaring: “ADD YOUR NAME: Lock Them Up!”
“I hope that AG Jeff Sessions will take our recommendations seriously,” she wrote, which is something many Americans strongly support.
There’s credible evidence that many of these officials likely broke the law — some on numerous occasions — and Tenney’s explosive email is calling for these officials to face the music.
Many Americans support her call and want to see those held accountable who broke the law.
Do you agree with Tenney that these officials should be locked up? Comment below.
