Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates blasted President Trump’s latest comments about the Department of Justice.

Citing Trump’s comments from a December interview in the New York Times in which he said he has “the absolute right to do what I want with the Justice Department,” Yates wrote of the president’s Tuesday morning tweet: “Today he slanders career DOJ professionals as ‘deep state,’ calls for prison for a political opponent, and tries to sic DOJ on a potential witness against him. Beyond abnormal; dangerous."

Earlier Tuesday, Trump attacked the Justice Department as “deep state,” in calling for prosecution against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey.

"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," Trump tweeted, referring to Daily Caller report about Abedin's emails. "Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others.”

Kristian Saucier was a former Navy sailor who was jailed for taking six photos inside a submarine.

Trump has been consistently critical of the Justice Department for not bringing charges against Clinton. He has also been critical of the FBI, most recently alleged the FBI’s reputation is in “tatters.”

Yates, who served as acting attorney general before being fired by Trump for not defending his executive order travel ban, said in November that Trump is using the Justice Department as a “tool” to “go after his enemies and protect his friends.”
