Hillary Clinton email controversy

Editor's note: The warrant the FBI used to search a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner was released Tuesday. The filings show the FBI told a federal magistrate that the laptop likely contained evidence of illegal possession of classified information, Politico reports. Weiner is the estranged husband of Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and authorities were investigating Weiner for alleged explicit online exchanges with a minor. Politico writes that the warrant may have been granted based exclusively on the FBI's contention that emails between Clinton and Abedin could contain classified information based on the earlier phase of the probe into Clinton's private email server use. FBI Director James Comey informed Congress about the new evidence on Oct. 28, and two days before the presidential election he announced that there was no new evidence of wrongdoing and no prosecution of Clinton was warranted. The warrant was unsealed after a California lawyer filed a suit. - Stephanie

Editor's note: FBI Director James Comey just released a letter he wrote to U.S. Congress members, saying his team has finished review of Hillary Clinton-related emails found on devices seized in the case related to former Rep. Anthony Weiner's alleged illicit texts sent to a minor. Comey said the agency is not changing the guidance it gave on Clinton's private email server in July, and Clinton will not face charges for the new emails reviewed. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that federal agents were to scour roughly 650,000 emails contained on Weiner's laptop. - Rebecca

Editor's note: CBS News reports the FBI found emails related to Hillary Clinton's time as secretary of state on Anthony Weiner's laptop, per a U.S. official. The source tells CBS these emails are not duplicates of emails found on Clinton's private server, but it is not clear whether they are significant to the FBI investigation. On Friday, FBI Director James Comey said the agency was reviewing newly-discovered emails in an unrelated case that may be pertinent to the investigation into Clinton's server. Former congressman Weiner is being investigated after allegations he sent illicit messages to a teenager. He is the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who has reportedly said she had no knowledge of the existence of any of her emails on Weiner's laptop, according to CBS News. - Stephanie

NBC News reports that investigators had previously had a warrant to search the laptop, but only as it pertained to evidence of Weiner's allegedly illicit communications with an underage girl. - Andrew

Editor's note: The Wall Street Journal reports federal agents are preparing to scour roughly 650,000 emails contained on the laptop of Anthony Weiner to see how many relate to a prior probe of Hillary Clinton’s email use. The investigation is reportedly to determine whether the messages are work-related between Clinton and Weiner's wife, Huma Abedin, who is close aide to the Democratic presidential nominee; how many messages are duplicates; and whether the emails include classified information or important new evidence in Clinton's email probe. CNN reports that the U.S. Department of Justice has yet to approach Abedin's lawyers about a full search of her emails. The Wall Street Journal also reports such a search would take "weeks at a minimum." - Rebecca

Editor's note: The FBI is investigating allegations former Rep. Anthony Weiner sent illicit text messages to a minor, and the New York Times and NBC News report devices seized in that case contain the emails that the FBI says "appear to be pertinent to the investigation" into Hillary Clinton's private server case. The FBI has not confirmed this detail, but did say in a letter to Congress that the new emails are from an "unrelated case." Wiener is the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, who is a senior aide to Clinton. - Stephanie
