FBI Obtains Warrant To Search Huma Abedin's Emails

Tyler Durden's picture

While we explained earlier today why the DOJ and FBI had found themselves in the awkward position of knowing that Anthony Weiner's computer contained thousands of Huma Abedin emails sent from Hillary Clinton's private server, yet were unable to access them, we noted it was only a matter of time before this particular hurdle was rectified. A few hours later, according to CBS' Jeff Pegues, in the matter of the FBI having much needed access to begin poring over Weiner's emails, which we now know number roughly 650,000 (and thus will take the FBI months to pore over), the FBI has just obtained the needed warrant.

 

As NBC confirms, the FBI obtained a warrant to search emails related to the Hillary Clinton private server probe that were discovered on ex-congressman Anthony Weiner's laptop. The warrant came two days after FBI director James Comey revealed the existence of the emails, which law-enforcement sources said 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.

The warrant came moments after Democratic Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid scolded Comey, 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.

The following screengrab from WaPo, perhaps summarizes best how the democrats' take on things has changed dramatically over the past few weeks:

 

Meanwhile, the CBS reporter also noted that according to law enforcement sources HumaAbedin Is cooperating and "seemed surprised that emails were there."

 

Finally, Pegues also points out that after having fieled much pressure from Democrats for the past 48 hours, FBI Director Comey has been quietly reaching out to members of Congress as pressure mounts on him.

So will the FBI promptly announce that nothing of material important was found among Weiner's emails, or will it now begin a protracted, intensive investigation? Will Comey resigns? Will Huma quit from her role in the Clinton campaign? Will Loretta Lynch take some of the blame? We hope to have some of these much needed answers in the coming days as the FBI's reopened probe begins gaining traction.

If Its really 650K emails that could be an archive of a server??????????

MANvsMACHINE's picture

Wouldn't it be ironic if all of the emails discussed yoga and Chelsea's wedding? Not really ironic. I'd be very disappointed.

Naw. The MSM will go to work, Hillary's supporters will believe it's all lies, the electors will do their jobs, she will be POTUS.

HowdyDoody's picture

Note how the MSM focusses on Comey rather than Clinton. We can assume Comey was 'just following orders', so who gave the orders?

Uncle Joe has a major problem with young girls.  Bring it on.

BIDEN!!!!!!
WTF!!!!!
Dems would go down even further.....RIDEN WITH BIDEN.
Mr. Pepsodent... "Hey, you in the wheelchair,....hop on up in the car!"
"Let me tell you where they kept Dick Cheney during 9/11."
Like the guy in the bar claiming to be CIA trying to hose women..
WTF!!!!
Better to put the gardener in there. At least she can attempt a resurrection of the guilt trip placed on the public by the democrats with Barrack.
Putting someone else in there now is admitting that Hillary was a complete lie, which we know it was, but there are still a lot of people that believe that lie.
Biden is a big shovel full of chicken manure and nothing else.

The difference between Uncle Joe and "Cracka Fat" Tony is that Joe gets horny with 13 year olds. weiner likes them two years older.

Yeah, I'm sure he has nothing to do with the any of Clinton crime family businesses. 

When he was told that Weiner's laptop had reopened the investigation he showed genuine emotion for the first time ever because he knows exactly what they've found on there. They're all sunk. They'll have to get all the way down to some very junior Congress critters to find any that aren't part of the criminal syndicate.

I bet everybody in the Hillary and Bill Crime Syndicate are shitting boulders with this news.

Looks like Hillary and Huma will be sitting in a cell after all, munching and broomsticking each other.  Could you imagine what those two would do to a women's prison?  Fucking shank fest.

Not only that, but EVERY donor to Clinton Foundation might have to pay back BIG taxes if it looses charity status.

Hatch Act - that's rich. How about we start with the Pittsburgh police chief speaking at the democratic convention in full uniform.
And threatening with the Hatch act won't put the toothpaste back in the tube. When Harry's finally gone, it'll be a great day for America.

Whoa Dammit's picture

The Clintons are a rolling non-stop Hatch Act violation.  But crickets from the RINOS about that.

SoDamnMad's picture

We have a 3 alarm fire at the DNC headquarters.  All units respond.

Sorry, Battalion 3 cannot respond because it would be a violation of the Hatch Act.

Battalion 1?  Same

Battalion 2? Same

Anybody???  Let it burn.

Harry Reid is such an ass hole.  I wonder if we could take up a collection on ZH and pay his brother to beat him up again and put his other eye out.

 

yogibear's picture

Agree.

His brother partially gave Reid what he deserved.

Reid probably mouthed off at his brother and his brother had enough.

Actually, the NSA Spy Cloud.  The emails have been there all along. All of them.

Yeah?  We all knew this all along.  Getting them out of the NSA DB, well that is a different thing altogether.

But

perhaps

just maybe

there is someone decent at the NSA too?

Supposing this is a full archive of all the emails from that server... how did they get there?  Who had the capability to do that?  Surely Carlos Danger could not have done it.  Surely nobody who is implicated in them would have done it.  Who does that leave?

Gosh, I certainly hope its not discovered Huma is like a foreign agent or sumpin...ya know like Valerie Jarrett or even...IN LEAGUE WITH THE RUSSIANS! 

Which would be worserer ;-)

LMAO!

Good gawd...he made money from...THE RUSSIANS!!!...

“Mae and Gabe, Please see attached K1 for Leonidio. You can use this to complete your 2014 tax return. We will each report 1/3 share of what’s on the form. Mom and Pa, Please see attached K1 showing the distribution to Leonidio.”

A forwarded June 1, 2015 email from Equilibrium Capital Group to Rouse clearly indicates the Leonidio Holdings and Rouse are one and the same:

“Hi Megan, Please find attached Leonidio Holdings, LLC’s 2014 K1 for ECG. Let me know if you have any questions or require any additional information. The one for John Podesta is just a final one to show the transfer.”

The form indicates that Podesta was responsible for $139.328 in “withdrawls and distributions.”

Fucking progs I swear...you can ALWAYS tell what they're up to by what they are accusing others of doing cuz they really are as transparent as a glass of water IF you know how to look...in this case its not Trump who was making money hand over fist with the Russians...it was Podesta...lol.
