650,000 emails on Weiner computer
Yes, 650,000 emails. Undoubtedly most of them relate to Weiner’s long career in politics, but there are also “thousands of emails sent to or from the private server that Mrs. Clinton used while she was secretary of state.”
The FBI has not actually read any of the emails (and they believe they need a warrant before they can start reading them), they just examined the “medadata.” In other words they just have a count of the number of emails that are sent from or to the clintonemail.com domain, but that’s all they know.
We know that 33,000 emails were deleted from the Clinton server. I think there’s a very good chance that some of the thousands of emails found on Weiner’s are the deleted ones. We will find out whether or not all of the emails deleted were truly personal as claimed by Clinton’s team.

There is a rumor floating out there that Weiner gave the FBI permission to read the emails.
