NEW YORK (AP) — A federal judge in New York has ordered the public release of the search warrant that FBI agents used to reopen their investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server just weeks before the presidential election.

U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel ruled Monday that the public had a right to see the warrant, which was secretly filed with the court on Oct. 30.

Agents used the warrant to get access to emails stored on a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The court documents will be unsealed at noon Tuesday, with portions blacked out to conceal the names of the agents and any information about an open investigation of Weiner's online correspondence with a teenage girl.


This story has been corrected to show the date of the search warrant filing was Oct. 30, not Oct. 20, because of an error in the judge's initial ruling.
