"Search warrant filings made public for the first time Tuesday provide a new look at controversial actions the FBI took shortly before the presidential election as the law enforcement agency revived its investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email set-up. The warrant was issued by federal magistrate Kevin Fox in Manhattan on Oct. 30, after the FBI requested permission to search emails contained on a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The FBI discovered Clinton-related emails on the computer after initially seizing the device during a probe over Weiner's alleged sexually explicit online exchanges with a minor. ... The records suggest Fox may have granted the warrant based exclusively on the FBI's contention [sic] that in the earlier phase of the Clinton email investigation, 'many emails' between Clinton and Abedin contained classified information, therefore emails between the pair from that same time period and suddenly discovered on Weiner's laptop were likely to also contain classified information and be evidence of a crime."
