Newly discovered emails that the FBI initially said may be “pertinent” to its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server do relate to her tenure as secretary of State, a source told CBS News Thursday. 

{mosads}A U.S. official told CBS News that the emails are not duplicates of documents previously reviewed during the investigation into Clinton’s private email server. They were reportedly found on the computer of Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin. 
  
It is unclear how many new relevant documents were retrieved from the computer and how significant they are to the investigation.
 
Other news outlets have reported that the new review of discovered emails will likely not be completed before Nov. 8
 
Last week, FBI Director James Comey announced that the bureau will revisit its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of State in light of the new documents.
 
Comey’s announcement did not provide much detail into the FBI’s decision, and was met by criticism from both parties who urged the FBI director to disclose more information about the new findings.
