The Reopened FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s Private Email Server could take weeks because agents have found some 650,000 emails on Weiner’s laptop. This means that if Clinton wins the presidency, she will still be under investigation well into her first term.
Weiner, the disgraced husband of Hillary’s right-hand woman Huma Abedin, had his laptop seized in September after DailyMail.com exposed his sexting of a 15-year-old girl.
On Sunday, it was revealed that thousands of the messages in the archive that stretches back years could be from Clinton’s controversial private server, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The sheer volume of the data means it will take agents until well past the election to assess if any contain classified information, leaving Clinton with the prospect of facing an ongoing investigation even if she is elected president.
The Democratic candidate already shows signs of slipping in the polls after a ABC News/Washington Post tracker poll revealed Trump was just one point behind. That’s an 11 point change since last week.
Complicating matters, the FBI still has not obtained the proper warrant to search for emails for classified information, despite realizing they existed early October.
The scandal caused by FBI director James Comey’s shock announcement on Friday ago has continued to grow as questions mount over right-hand woman Abedin’s future on the Clinton campaign.
Abedin has reportedly pleaded ignorance about how the emails ended up on her husband Weiner’s laptop.
Even worse for her situation, Abedin swore under oath while testifying in a lawsuit brought against the State Department by Judicial Watch that she had handed over all of her devices that could hold emails relevant to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. If she’s found to have lied she could face up to five years in jail.
Donald Trump delivered a swift kick to disgraced former Democratic congressman Weiner on Sunday, thanking him for preserving the emails that could bring Clinton down.
The Republican presidential nominee told a more than 7,000 people packed into a Las Vegas casino ballroom that be believes the FBI has recovered some of Clinton’s 33,000 deleted emails.
‘I have a feeling they just found a lot of them,’ he said, before calling out the name of Weiner’s estranged wife Huma Abedin.
‘Huma! They just found a lot of them!’ he boomed. ‘We never thought we were going to say “Thank you” to Anthony Weiner!’
