Federal investigators now have a warrant to review some of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s emails, the New York Times reports.

Investigators will seize and review emails related to the Clinton investigation found on the computer belonging to disgraced Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner and his wife Abedin. Some of Abedin’s emails passed through Clinton’s illicit, homebrew private server that she used to conduct official state business. Investigators will review the Abedin emails related to the Clinton case.

The FBI plans to review some 650,000 emails found on Weiner’s computer to see how many are related to the re-opened Clinton case. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier Sunday that the FBI had to wait for a court order to being its search.  Thousands of those emails may have been “sent to or from” Clinton’s private server.
