WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 (UPI) — The Federal Bureau of Investigation has permission to sort through hundreds of thousands of emails on a computer belonging to the husband of one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides because some of them may relate to a now-closed investigation into the former secretary of state’s private email server.The FBI received a warrant to investigate about 650,000 emails on a laptop shared by former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The emails may relate to a monthslong investigation to find whether Clinton or her surrogates broke federal law by sending email through her private email server, according to the director of the FBI.FBI Director James Comey revealed the existence of the new emails Friday in a letter he sent to Congress informing them of the potential his testimony in August about the investigation may change as a result of new information coming to light.The emails were discovered by FBI agents weeks ago during an unrelated investigation into allegations Weiner sent sexual text messages to a 15-year-old girl.While searching Weiner’s computer for child pornography, metadata on the laptop showed thousands of messages the FBI said may be related to Clinton’s private home email server.
