A federal court has released the FBI warrant that set off an October surprise for Hillary Clinton.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

The warrant shows the FBI was looking for evidence of "intrusions" by people trying to steal classified information. It gave agents the ability to search a laptop owned by disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

In the warrant application, the FBI said six email chains contained information that was classified at the Secret level at the time the emails were sent. FBI Director James Comey has been harshly criticized for reopening the case in the final days of the campaign, only to close it again.

Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted that the unsealed warrant "reveals Comey's intrusion on the election was as utterly unjustified".
