FBI Gets Warrant to Review Emails on Weiner’s Laptop in Clinton Probe

The FBI has apparently been able to receive a search warrant for Anthony Weiner’s laptop. This allows them to search for any emails connected to Hillary Clinton.

The Hill reports:

The FBI has obtained a warrant to search emails “pertinent” to the probe of Hillary Clinton’s private server contained on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-N.Y.) laptop, according to multiple reports.

The FBI already had a warrant to search the computer, but only for evidence related to his alleged communications with an underage girl, NBC News said.

The FBI will examine roughly 650,000 emails on the laptop, according to the Wall Street Journal, which may include thousands of emails sent to or from the private server Clinton used while she was secretary of state.

The probe had to wait for a court order because the emails were uncovered in the unrelated investigation of Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
