The lawyers of Huma Abedin have gone into negotiations with the FBI in order to fully search the computers of her husband Anthony Weiner aligned with the latest Hillary email probe.
The FBI wishes to comb through the 650,000 emails Weiner has, thousands of which possibly were through the private email server of Hillary.
This could through up some huge controversy before the election next week.
The Justice Department and the FBI are in discussions with lawyers for Huma Abedin to conduct a full search of new emails discovered on her husband’s computer that turned up during another investigation, CNN reported Sunday.
Investigators believe it’s likely the newly recovered trove will include emails that were deleted from Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s server before the FBI took possession of it as part of an earlier investigation that many thought had concluded in July, CNN reported
The FBI still has not yet sought a search warrant for the emails, law enforcement sources told CNN.
Investigators need 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 investigators only had the authority to probe Weiner, who is accused of having sexually explicit communications with an underage girl.
