The FBI has found emails related to Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state on the laptop belonging to the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, according to a USA official.
Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state has dogged her campaign since early previous year.
Weiner's estranged wife, Huma Abedin - who is Clinton's top aide - has claimed she had no knowledge of the existence of any Clinton emails on her husband's laptop.
Meanwhile, the FBI and U.S. intelligence agencies are examining faked documents aimed at discrediting the Clinton campaign as part of a broader investigation into possible attempts by Russian Federation to disrupt the presidential election, people with knowledge of the matter said. The FBI obtained a warrant on Sunday to look at the emails.
However, the reports also show that the political leadership at the Department of Justice is trying to protect Clinton and are interfering in FBI's criminal investigation, he added.
Trump Rushed Off Stage in Nevada After Security Scare

They described the atmosphere inside the bureau as "chaotic" and said that there was widespread "outrage" over director James Comey's decision not to recommend an indictment over Clinton's maintenance of a private email server on which classified information transited, the Guardian said.
"I, I had expected this for the last, honestly to tell you the truth, I thought it was going to be about three or four weeks ago, because back, way back in July this started, they kept getting stymied looking for subpoenas, looking for records", Giuliani said. "I had no role in it", Giuliani said on the morning Fox News program. But in the next breath, he said: "Did I hear about it?" "Her emails were found on pervert Anthony Weiner's laptop".
To change the calculus, the FBI would have to find correspondence that clearly demonstrates Clinton or her aides knowingly broke the law, exchanged materials they knew to be classified or attempted to interfere with the investigation by withholding or destroying evidence, according to former federal prosecutors and legal scholars. "There is more breaking news that I'd like to share with you right now". Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon, retweeting a transcript of Giuliani's "Fox & Friends" appearance, wrote, "This sure seems like adequate grounds for an Inspector General review". His FBI sources told Baier, "with 99 percent" certitude, that Clinton's Chappaqua server "had been hacked by at least five foreign intelligence services".
I consider Trump's sexual predator behavior far more worrisome than emails that may or may not be on someone's computer.
According to NBC's justice correspondent, Pete Williams, the Clinton Foundation inquiry doesn't even deserve to be called an investigation.
