The presidential election is only 5 days away, and it probably can’t come soon enough for Hillary Clinton as each day reveals new revelations regarding the reopened FBI case into her use of a private email server when she was serving as Secretary of State.
Moments ago, CBS news reports that the FBI confirmed finding emails related to Hillary Clinton on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, husband of Clinton’s close aid Huma Abedin. Most notably, the FBI states these emails are NOT duplicates of the ones already turned in by Clinton and her staff, meaning they could be part of the over 33,000 missing emails that were deleted from her private server. These emails were not just deleted, however, as Clinton’s team used a server erasing software called Bleach Bit to ensure that there were no traces of them to be found…ever.
It seems that someone in the Clinton camp slipped up, not knowing that what appears to be her entire library of emails has been stored on Anthony Weiner’s laptop. Whether these documents were stored intentionally by Weiner for his own purposes, or were simply a backup that no one new about, has yet to be discovered.
Reports have been surfacing of an “internal coup” within the FBI, with agents rebelling against the orders of their superiors due to the explosive nature of the corruption revealed within these emails. FBI sources have even told Fox News reporters that a case against the Clinton Foundation is moving towards a “likely indictment“.
With FBI revelations coming on a daily basis, one can only wonder what new details revolving the epic number of Clinton scandals will be revealed. Tomorrow is Friday, and the FBI has had a history of making particularly sensitive announcements at the end of the week, as they did last Friday when they announced they were reopening the Clinton email case.

The FBI has found emails related to Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state on the laptop belonging to the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, according to a U.S. official.
These emails, CBS News’ Andres Triay reports, are not duplicates of emails found on Secretary Clinton’s private server. At this point, however, it remains to be seen whether these emails are significant to the FBI’s investigation into Clinton. It is also not known how many relevant emails there are.
In a letter to Congress last Friday, FBI Director James Comey indicated that the agency was newly discovered emails relating to Clinton’s private email server. Those emails came from the laptop of Weiner, a former New York congressman. Abedin reportedly said she . On Monday, CBS News reported that the FBI had for the emails.
In a separate matter, CBS News confirmed that there were disagreements between FBI agents looking into the Clinton Foundation and their superiors in Washington and at the Department of Justice. The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that the FBI was facing an “internal feud” over how to handle the Clinton Foundation case in the middle of election season. Officials say tension like this is common in many cases.
It is still unclear whether the FBI inquiry into the Clinton Foundation was a full-blown investigation. The current status of that inquiry is also unclear. However, no known charges have been filed related to the foundation.
