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
