A federal court in New York has released redacted copies of the search warrant and other documents that gave the FBI permission to take a second look at Hillary Clinton's emails.

Among the documents unsealed Tuesday was an FBI affidavit arguing there was probable cause to examine the emails found on a computer belonging to former Rep. Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The papers offered no new revelations about a case that factored into the presidential race.

According to the newly released court papers, the FBI sought a search warrant two days after FBI Director James Comey's letter to Congress on Oct. 30 to review "thousands" of emails on a Toshiba laptop. Those emails, Comey said in his letter, were found in an "unrelated case."

The discovery of the emails prompted Comey to briefly reopen an investigation that he had closed into Clinton's use of a private computer server. Agents spent several days analyzing them before Comey announced that they contained no new evidence.
