Did FBI Director James Comey force DOJ Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s hand on this? The Clinton campaign team has been arguing all day Sunday how Comey and the FBI didn’t have the warrant to read through the emails, now they have one.
Many websites had also been sharing how the DOJ would never give the FBI a warrant thus creating chaos among social media. Well, that’s over and it’s time for the FBI to start reading and checking these emails to see whether or not they have any association with Hillary Clinton and her private email server.
From The NY Times:
Federal investigators have obtained a warrant to begin searching a large cache of emails belonging to a top aide toHillary Clinton, federal law enforcement officials said Sunday, as prosecutors and F.B.I. agents scrambled to review as much of the information as possible before Election Day.
It remains unclear, though, whether they can finish their work by then. “The process has begun,” a federal law enforcement official said.
Earlier this month, agents in an unrelated investigation of the disgraced congressman Anthony D. Weiner discovered emails belonging to his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, the aide to Mrs. Clinton. That prompted a renewed interest among F.B.I. agents who had investigated Mrs. Clinton for her use of a private email server as secretary state and had concluded their case without charges in July.
A federal law enforcement official said agents had discovered hundreds of thousands of Ms. Abedin’s emails on her husband’s computer, but investigators expected to seize only a portion of the total. Agents will have probable cause to search only the messages related to the Clinton investigation.
Some of Ms. Abedin’s emails passed through Mrs. Clinton’s private server, officials said, which means there is a high likelihood that the F.B.I. has already read them.
Since the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, revealed the existence of the emails in a letter to Congress on Friday, senior Justice Department and F.B.I. officials have been under tremendous pressure to review the messages quickly. Both Mrs. Clinton and her Republican rival, Donald J. Trump, have called for the F.B.I. to say publicly what it knows before Election Day.
Donald Trump tonight during a speech said the following:
Trump, describing how much 650,000 emails is: "If you sat here and did like this, “1, 2…” you'd be there for weeks!"

I don’t remember seeing Clinton this much in trouble so this should be something to behold.
