UPDATE: Several media outlets are now reporting that the FBI was led to the discovery of the new Clinton Email scandal evidence through the investigation into disgraced New York politician Anthony Weiner!
The FBI has reopened its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server while secretary of state after discovering new emails – apparently during the probe of former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s sexting – in a stunning turn of events just days before the presidential election…
An FBI source, though, confirmed to Fox News that the new emails were discovered after the bureau seized devices belonging to disgraced Rep. Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin, a top Clinton aide who recently announced she was separating from the former congressman. The New York Times first reported on the Weiner investigation connection, noting the FBI had been probing texts Weiner sent to a 15-year-old girl.
Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) just announced that the FBI just discovered new emails pertinent to their case against Hillary Clinton. They are reopening the investigation!

FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to 8 different Congressional Committee Chairmen saying:
“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.”
