FBI beams its searchlight on Clinton’s aide’s emails

Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is facing more scrutiny by the FBI which has obtained a warrant to scrutinize a new batch of emails of her aide which are potentially tied to Clinton.

The emails, belonging to Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, came to light during an investigation of disgraced former New York congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Abedin.

According to law enforcement officials, it remains unclear, however, whether investigators can finish their work before Election Day, The New York Times reported.

“The process has begun,” the newspaper quoted a federal law enforcement official as saying on Sunday.

James Comey, the director of the FBI, set off a political firestorm on Friday by announcing in a letter to Congress that the agency would investigate emails discovered in a separate probe to see if they contain classified information.
