The imporatance of this brief article is the news that a court must grant the FBI permission to rummage through Huma’s emails. Court orders generally take a while to obtain, but given the closeness of the November 8 election, a judge ought to expedite the request.
Investigators got their hands on Huma Abedin’s emails when they searched a laptop that she jointly used with her husband, Anthony Weiner.
But the FBI will have to go to court to obtain a warrant in order to examine those emails, NBC reported Friday.
It’s unknown when that warrant will be obtained – and how long it’ll take the FBI to go through thousands of Abedin’s emails if it’s granted.
Weiner allegedly used the laptop to exchange sexually explicit messages and photos with an underage teen in North Carolina.
Investigators have been looking into Weiner’s relationship with that 15-year-old girl.
