FBI warrant released in Clinton email case

A federal court on Tuesday released the search warrant documents filed by the FBI to access a laptop used by disgraced ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, revealing new details about why the bureau revisited the email case just days before the presidential election.

The FBI’s earlier investigation found “27 email chains containing classified information” that were exchanged between Clinton and Abedin, and investigators wanted to see what was also on the Abedin-Weiner laptop, according to the government affidavit unsealed Tuesday. That laptop, the FBI noted, “was never authorized for the storage or transmission of classified or national defense information,” according to the application for the warrant, which was partially redacted.

The October re-opening of the Clinton investigation sprung from an unrelated case involving Weiner allegedly sexting with an underage girl. During the course of that inquiry, agents discovered the joint laptop and later found emails addressed to and sent from Clinton.

Exposing classified information knowingly is a crime. If Hillary didn't know, she's stupid. That the DNC continued her STUPID view of computer security is a result of group stupidity and sharing of what they thought was protected. They are just stupid.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse, and Hillary isn't stupid, or ignorant of the law.

Guilty. But not until January 201st.

Hillary was a lawyer. She's not stupid. And was not careless. Just arrogant to run things her way. And her lying got her off the hook with Comey.
