ABC News Article on Clinton-Weiner Search Warrant Lamented Timing of Investigation

It reads as if ABC News lamented the timing of the FBI’s investigation of Clinton and her e-mails. This is from the ABC News article [1] on the search warrant for Anthony Weiner’s laptop being unsealed:

The warrant for former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s computer includes a standard form cover sheet with check boxes to indicate the basis for the search. Boxes have been marked stating there is “evidence of a crime” and “contraband, fruits of a crime, or other items illegally possessed.”

Though these are standard forms in criminal investigations, this case and the timing of these events was anything but standard. The chain of events were part of an unusual course in the race for president.
