Justice Department, Abedin lawyers in talks to permit email search

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by NancyBlueINOklahoma (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

(CNN)The Justice Department and the FBI are in discussions with lawyers for Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin to secure approval that would allow the FBI to conduct a full search of her newly discovered emails, sources familiar with the discussions told CNN.

Authorities have not yet sought a search warrant for the emails, law enforcement sources told CNN. Government lawyers hope to secure a search warrant to permit investigators to review thousands of emails on a computer Abedin shared with her estranged husband, Anthony Weiner, officials said.

The new search warrant is needed because the existing authorization, covered by a subpoena, related only to the ongoing investigation of Weiner, who is accused of having sexually explicit communications with an underage girl.

Investigators from the FBI's New York field office who are conducting the Weiner investigation stumbled on the Abedin emails while they were reviewing emails and other communications on the computer, which was considered to belong to Weiner, the officials said. They stopped their work and called in the team of investigators from FBI headquarters who conducted the probe of Clinton's private email server.

2. Why is the Justice Department working in cahoots with the FBI on this????

 

Loretta Lynch should shut this down today. DOJ investigators should be ordered to stop any ongoing work on this "investigation", and AG Lynch should inform the FBI to cease their investigation immediately.

3. Trove - nice prejudicial word

Investigators believe it's likely the newly recovered trove will include emails that were deleted from the Clinton server before the FBI took possession of it as part of that earlier investigation.


Trove-
a store of valuable or delightful things.


No bias to be seen here.

4. This whole last sentence

is pure speculation and will be red meat for fox et all and trump. damn

Because they don't have a warrant specific to Abedin's emails, officials have not been able to further examine them. Justice Department and FBI officials view Abedin as cooperative with the investigation.
FBI officials yet don't know how many of the emails are duplicates of emails they already have reviewed as part of the Clinton email server investigation and whether any of them may contain classified information.

Investigators believe it's likely the newly recovered trove will include emails that were deleted from the Clinton server before the FBI took possession of it as part of that earlier investigation.

6. A real reporter would ask his "source"

what do you base the assertion that it is likely the emails include ones previously deleted from the server?

If Abedin doesn't know how the emails got on her machine, she would be taking a big risk in giving access to her machine if there are previously deleted sensitive emails. It kind of reinforces the thought that nothing to be seen here.

14. CNN put disclaimer on the bottom of the story.

As it invalidates the whole story, the story is bogus.

5. CNN's Evan Perez, who wrote this, just tweeted that the story was incorrect. See my

reply in the topic about this news that I posted before you posted this duplicate.

The CNN story itself hasn't been updated/corrected yet.

15. They now added a correction to the bottom of the story.

Which invalidates the whole story. Pathetic, really.

7. except....

The FBI already has subpoenas that cover the emails, regardless of where they are, as long as they are related to either state.gov or Clintons server.

If they were emails sent from a private account Huma had to her husband, it might be outside the subpoena. These would be personal emails, though they could relate to work. I know I've sent a lot of venting emails to my wife.

But for any emails related to the existing investigation, they already have one.

They can also get a warrant in about an hour. There are judges on call to help the FBI.

It sounds like they are slow walking this intentionally. Wonder why?

12. Exactly. Judges are avaliable for approving subpoenas 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

There is no excuse for the delay other than partisan game playing.

Look at the disclaimer cnn put on the bottom. What they claimed isn't true.
