The FBI obtained a warrant to search emails related to the Hillary Clinton private server probe that were discovered on ex-congressman Anthony Weiner's laptop, law enforcement officials confirmed Sunday. 

The warrant came two days after FBI director James Comey revealed the existence of the emails, which law-enforcement sources said were linked to Weiner's estranged wife, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. 

The FBI already had a warrant to search Weiner's laptop, but that only applied to evidence of his allegedly illicit communications with an underage girl.



I understand that the agents investigating Weiner's weiner knew that the emails were on the computer, could see the files but were unable lawfully to examine them as the warrant they held until yesterday applied only to evidence related to Weiner's sex crimes.

That's all changed now.  This is formal confirmation of the nature of the investigation the FBI is engaged  in over Clinton.  

More as it happens today.
