The Hillary Clinton email scandal truly is never-ending. On Monday, a federal judge ordered the release of the search warrant that led to the reopening of the FBI investigation into Clinton’s email just days before the presidential election:
U.S. District Court [Judge] P. Kevin Castel issued an order Monday that the warrant linked to the Clinton probe and related records be unsealed at noon Tuesday, unless a higher court steps in. The judge acted after a California lawyer who mainly investigates art thefts, E. Randal Schoenberg, filed a suit seeking to force unsealing of the files.
The records to be unsealed will show how the FBI framed its arguments for the search warrant to access the emails. An affidavit submitted when seeking the warrant could reflect what the FBI told the magistrate involved about how likely the alleged the emails were to contain evidence of a crime.
Just last week, outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid blamed the reopened email probe for “singlehandedly” costing Clinton the election.
Could it cost her even more? We’ll just have to wait and see.
