FBI Obtains Warrant to Read Newly Discovered Emails

The FBI obtained a warrant to search emails 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 that the emails 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.

Comey's disclosure of the emails ignited fierce criticism, particularly from Clinton, who called the move an "unprecedented" departure from FBI policy.

On Sunday, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid scolded Comey as well, saying in a letter that he "demonstrated a disturbing double standard for the treatment of sensitive information, with what appears to be clear intent to aid one political party over another."

Reid added that his office determined that Comey may have violated the Hatch Act, which bars government officials from using their authority to influence elections, especially this close to the General Election.

If the FBI know 15 days before the FBI Director sent his letter to Congress, there was email, how did they kmow what were in them if they just got the warrant to read them?

If they just got a warrant to read the emails, how did the FBI Director know what was in them?
