E. Randol Schoenberg’s effort to attain the warrant that the FBI director claims authorized a search of Anthony Weiner’s laptop for emails linked to Hillary Clinton has moved forward according to this from Newsweek.
The controversy over FBI Director James Comey’s announcement of a new review into Hillary Clinton’s private email server just 11 days before the recent presidential election moved into federal court Tuesday with a hearing focused on the search warrant that gave FBI agents access to Clinton emails found on the computer of Anthony Weiner, the former congressman and husband of a top Clinton aide.
Los Angeles lawyer E. Randol Schoenberg, best known for recovering Jewish-owned art looted by the Nazis, hired lawyers to file a lawsuit last week in an attempt to unseal that search warrant and related affidavits….
“Access to the search warrant is critical for the public to learn the basis for the reopening of the investigation to ensure the FBI acted in a manner consistent with its constitutional obligations under the First Amendment,” the suit says.
On Tuesday afternoon in a courtroom in downtown Manhattan, federal judge Kevin Castel said he may make public the search warrant and related documents from the search of Weiner’s computer….
Castel gave the government just two days to file papers arguing why the search warrant and related documents should stay sealed and told Schoenberg’s lawyers to send a copy of the lawsuit to Clinton, Weiner and Abedin.
