A federal judge in New York Monday said he’ll release the FBI’s warrant and application that enabled the agency to search for e-mails linked to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on a laptop computer used by Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband Anthony Weiner. 

U.S. District Judge Kevin Castel said he will release the documents Tuesday at noon, on the court system’s online-filing system, unless ordered not to by a federal appeals court. The documents will be redacted to shield the identity of an agent for the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and two other individuals.

The ruling came in a suit filed Dec. 12 by attorney Randol Schoenberg seeking release of the warrant materials.

FBI Director James Comey told Congress in an Oct. 28 letter that the agency has discovered new e-mails related to Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server while serving as Secretary of State that warranted additional scrutiny. The FBI had announced in July that the probe was closed. The e-mails were discovered during an FBI investigation of Weiner, a former Congressman, who’s accused of sending lewd text messages to a then 15-year-old girl. 

Comey announced Nov. 6, two days before the presidential election, that the bureau hadn’t found anything incriminating in the e-mails.

The case is In re Search Warrant, 16-mc-00464, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).
