The FBI had no evidence of wrongdoing when the bureau asked a judge for a warrant to search a computer that contained correspondence between Hillary Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin.
The newly released documents shed more light on the FBI’s revelation that it was resuming the Clinton investigation less than two weeks before the election, the Washington Post reports. 
The search warrant was for a computer that belonged to former congressman Anthony Weiner, who is Abedin’s estranged husband.
“The affidavit concedes that the FBI had no basis to conclude whether these e-mails were even pertinent to that closed investigation, were significant, or whether they had, in fact, already been reviewed prior to the closing of the investigation,” said David E. Kendall, Clinton’s lawyer. “What does become unassailably clear, however, is that as the sole basis for this warrant, the FBI put forward the same evidence the Bureau concluded in July was not sufficient to bring a case — the affidavit offered no additional evidence to support any different conclusion.”

Looking at just the header information of emails, agents found on Weiner’s device thousands of Abedin emails, including what seemed to be “regular” correspondence with Clinton and some messages that appeared to have been sent while Clinton was secretary of state. Based on that — and because Clinton and Abedin were previously on email chains in which classified information was discussed — they argued to a judge there was probable cause for their search. They had not at the time reviewed the content of any Abedin emails, according to the documents unsealed Tuesday.
