Washington, October 31 (RHC)-- The race for the White House was jolted over the weekend when FBI Director James Comey notified congressional leaders that the agency was investigating more e-mails as part of its probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail system.
The e-mails were apparently discovered as part of a probe into former Congressmember Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Abedin reportedly stored hundreds of thousands of e-mails on Weiner’s computer, which was seized by the FBI after Weiner allegedly sent illicit text messages to a 15-year-old girl.
Comey notified Congress before the FBI even obtained a warrant to look at Abedin’s e-mail. A warrant was reportedly issued over the weekend.
Criticism of FBI Director Comey has come from both Democrats and Republicans, who charge Comey may have violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits employees of the executive branch from engaging in political activity.
