Anthony Weiner's tale of self-destruction rocks race for president

After that followed more sexting allegations, their separation and her departure for the Clinton campaign.

A week before the U.S. presidential elections, Republican nominee Donald Trump has taken a slender lead of one percentage point against his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for the first time since May in a major national tracking poll.

After their meeting, the Justice Department sent a three-paragraph letter to lawmakers telling them only that it will "work closely" and "as expeditiously as possible" with the FBI on the new probe, without providing more specifics on the investigation.

Hillary Clinton's campaign manager today called FBI Director James Comey's letter to congressional leaders regarding the emails of a top Clinton associate a "break in protocol". He also said that although "the Federal Bureau of Investigation can not yet assess whether or not this material may be significant", he had directed investigators "to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information". This might not match Donald Trump's latest troubles - his treatment of women and the suggestion he might not accept the election result - but the election is looking closer than it was a week ago.

The cache of emails goes back several years, the official told NBC News.

"I want Trump to win, but what Comey just did to Hillary Is wrong & really unfair to her". (As Kerr notes, it would be up to Abedin to make such a request as it is her privacy rights at stake).

The emails are clearly Abedin's property, even if they were backed up on her husband's computer. Agents also would have to find evidence that Clinton intentionally violated classification laws, which Comey said they did not find in their investigation that concluded in July. But, host Seth Meyers says, the Trump campaign missed the opportunity for a substantial critique, opting to instead make unusual appeals to black voters.

"Look at the way Crooked Hillary is handling the e-mail case and the total mess she is in".

Yet, Washington uses the ICC as a threat against African leaders that resist US domination - like Burundi's President Nkurunziza. Experts point out that most of the ICC cases in Africa were referred to the court by African countries themselves or by the U.N.

Dunn added: "She only learned for the first time on Friday, from press reports , of the possibility that a laptop belonging to Mr. Representative Carolyn Maloney of New York told the New York Times , "I can't stand him - even before this".

Langer said the poll's thin margin shows it's anyone's race. Glamorous and fashionable, she has always been a recognizable figure among Clinton supporters and political opponents.

Speaking at a campaign stop in Valley Forge, Penn., Tuesday, the Republican vice presidential nominee said that "the latest polls have Donald Trump leading nationwide in the race for president of the United States".

"They do not have an obligation to do that", Painter said.

It also found that 87 percent of Democrats believe Clinton has presidential qualities, while only 60 percent of Republicans said Trump has presidential qualities.

In a letter addressed to Mr Comey on Monday, the Iowa Senator and head of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley called for more details about the revelation.

"What we are focused on right now is making sure every single one of our supporters understands how important it is that they turn out and vote", Mook said.

Over the summer, the FBI investigated Russia's attempts to influence the outcome of the 2016 election by scrutinizing Trump advisers, financial connections, email trails and the hacks of Democratic political organizations, The New York Times reported on Monday.
