The Justice Department has obtained a warrant that will allow it to begin searching the computer that is believed to contain thousands of newly-discovered emails of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, two law enforcement sources confirmed to CNN.
The computer in question is considered to belong to Abedin’s estranged husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner, and was seized as part of a separate investigation regarding allegations of him sexting with an underage girl.
Authorities believed they needed this new search warrant because the existing authorization, covered by an initial warrant, related only to that initial investigation.
“The FBI will release a partial transcript Monday of Omar Mateen’s phone calls with police negotiators during a mass shooting in Orlando last week that left 49 dead, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday.
Lynch said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that during the calls, a police negotiating team was trying to determine who Mateen was, “where he was and why he was doing this, all while the rescue operations were continuing.”
