>> FBI director James Comey's letter to Congress, sent just days before the US presidential election, reviving the bureau's fruitless investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails showed, quote, extraordinary impropriety. That's how Clinton attorney David Kendall describes Comey's three campaign-roiling paragraphs after reviewing unsealed FBI search warrant documents made public on Tuesday.
The release shows that the warrant was issued two days after Comey sent the infamous letter which informed a group of Congressmen that potentially relevant emails had been discovered in an unrelated case. The documents also gave no indication that the FBI had any evidence at the time of Comey's letter That any of the emails found on what turned out to be a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner involved classified communications with Clinton.
The former Congressman who was the estranged husband of close Clinton aide Huma Abedin was the subject of an FBI investigation into reports he was sexting a 15-year old girl. Hillary Clinton herself has blamed Comey and his letter for her defeat. And Kendall on Tuesday said Comey's letter quote produced devastating but predictable damage politically and which was both legally unauthorized and factually unnecessary.
The FBI has declined the comment.>> And my judgment here is there is not.
