whether huma abedin's e-mails add anything to the investigation into hillary clinton's private e-mail server. there is new information about the role that fbi director james comey played in the investigation and the timing of the probe so close to election day. let's get the latest from cnn's evan perez. >> reporter: good morning. fbi investigators obtained a search warrant to review e-mails belonging to huma abedin. one of hillary clinton's closest advisers. investigators found the e-mails weeks ago while conducting the investigation against her husband, anthony weiner. he is under investigation under exchanges sexually explicit messages with an underage girl. that is causing concern days before the election. a law enforcement official tells cnn what is going on behind the
1:01 am
scenes is this. technical experts spent time categorizing the e-mails. officials were briefed after the e-mails and there were some legal questions. the search warrant they had only covered the weiner sexting allegations. now e-mails could relate to the decliclinton ton investigation. now there is enough cause to seek a new search warrant. now investigators will see if there is information in the huma abedin e-mails and the investigation into the clinton e-mail server. a letter was sent to congress on friday. despite calls for more information, comey has no plans to say more while they are doing their work. >> evan perez, thank you.
1:02 am
nearly 100 former federal prosecutors, both republicans and democrats, are raising concerns about the comey letter to congress. they say it is inconsistent with policy. among the signers of the open letter criticizing comey is former attorney general eric holder and larry thompson. this letter says comey's unprecedented decision to publicly comment on evidence in what may be an inquiry 11 days leaves us astonished and perplexed. >> eric holder wrote a scathing op-ed in the "post." it says james comey is a good man, but he made a serious mistake. holder said comey broke with fundamental principles. holder writes it is incumbent
1:03 am
upon him to dispel the uncertainty he created before election day. not for the campaign, but to protect our system of justice. that's the former attorney general eric holder. the senate democratic leader harry reid is throwing bombing on. this he is accusing the fbi director this morning of breaking the law. reid wrote saying he believes comey's 11th hour revelations may violate the hatch act. the hatch act bars government officials from engaging in political activity. you usually hear about this when congress members cannot raise money from offices. they have to do it from separate places. he is saying comey is engaging in political activity at the fbi. reid also accused comey of a double standard. claiming he has refused to release unspecified information.
1:04 am
>> donald trump is reveling in this controversy. right now, hillary clinton is ahead by five points in the cnn poll of polls. jim acosta has more. >> reporter: trump is embracing the investigation into the e-mails possibly linked to hillary clinton. trump and advisors are praising the fbi for looking into the e-mails as part of the investigation of the sexting allegations. that is a big shift after donald trump is causing the government of rigging the election. now the fbi has the information it needs to bring clinton to justice. >> how do you have that many e-mails? do you sit down all day and keep typing? no wonder nothing gets done in
1:05 am
our country. this is the single biggest scandal since watergate. >> reporter: trump is pursuing a blue state strategy making a stop in new mexico and michigan. those are the states he hopes to flip on november 8th. john and christine. >> the question is now what does hillary clinton do about this in her campaign over the next several days? she did a news conference on saturday. she answered questions about this. i should say friday night. then talked about it on the trail saturday. not so much on sunday. she goes to ohio today. right now, she is asking voters to remember the bigger picture. >> there have been ups and downs and all that we have gone through over the years and even in this campaign, but i want you to know i'm focused on one thing. you. there's a lot of noise and
1:06 am
distraction. it comes down to what kind of future we want. >> what is the strategy inside the clinton world for the e-mails? let's get the latest from cnn's phil mattingly. >> reporter: john and christine, there was something absent from hillary clinton's remarks on sunday. any mention from the james comey letter. the reason for that? the top advisers will continue to attack james comey and continue to try to under cut everything that he was trying to do by informing congress. hillary clinton is reverting back to what they were trying to do 12 days ago before this started. she has a campaign strategy and message that the campaign believes a message they need to get back to now. here's why. early voting. people are voting. especially here in florida. something hillary clinton made clear. take a listen. >> this is amazing. more than 20 million people have
1:07 am
already voted in this election. most of those votes in the last few days, 3 million of those votes from right here in florida. now you only see numbers like that when people are standing up for what they really believe in. >> reporter: the big question is will she lose support? will the masses walk away? when it comes to the e-mail server, things were already baked in. they believe this may energize her support. circle the wagons as the supporters come out to defend her in the last few days. it is something anecdotally on sunday in florida. the question is will that carry over and the bigger question is will there be a larger impact on the numbers? we will see. john and christine. >> all right. thanks for that. melania trump is back in the spotlight. delivering the first speech since the convention on
1:08 am
thursday. she is going to philadelphia. donald trump says it is the first of two or three by his wife before election day. he said they were big speeches. philadelphia suburbs are heavily courting middle class women who live there. >> so with the fbi's new surprise getting into the race, let's check in with cnn political reporter eugene scott. wow. we thought it might be a quiet monday. not so much. this is extraordinary. i don't know where to begin. let's begin with what is happening and what we are seeing on the campaign trail. the hillary clinton team and democrats are going hard after the fbi director. they are not saying let's wait and see. they want answers and they are aggressive. listen to the campaign chair john podesta. >> i think this is something that has been tossed into the middle of the campaign. we would have preferred that not
1:09 am
happen, but now it has happened, mr. comey feeds to come forward and explain why he took this unprecedented step. particularly, these may not be significant. >> what's the play here, eugene? you are going after the fbi director, a man whom you praised over the summer when he chose not to press charges against hillary clinton. >> i think they want to make clear the policies and guidelines in place with the fbi and the justice department seem to be different from what it is that comey has done in the last couple of days. they have to prove this is what is going to harm them. this was going to hurt them and violate the whole situation for the voters. >> so this is a week we will spend talking about hillary clinton e-mails and james comey and what's on that laptop that they are searching.
1:10 am
donald trump will sees on thize. for team clinton, what do they do here? could it be possible we learn something more this week or we learn something after election day? >> i think it depends on how fast they are able to move with the e-mails. we don't know yet what the e-mails say. it is possible we will move forward now we have the warrant in getting answers voters need. >> they want to talk about donald trump. >> right. >> their plan was to talk about donald trump. now people are talking about hillary clinton. donald trump with a spring on his step and interesting locations for rallies. listen to what he said about the e-mails over the weekend. >> this could be the motherlode. you know? this could be the 33,000 that are missing. >> i think they have some real bad ones. we will find out. maybe not. maybe not. >> by the way, that is wild speculation. he has not basis.
1:11 am
>> that is trump to throw something out there and then say maybe not. >> he was in colorado when he said that. later yesterday, he went to new mexico. new mexico is just a blue state right now. trump is going on offense in the final days. >> he is. the clinton campaign is focusing on early voters to bring people out who have made up their minds regardless of e-mails. she hopes this revelation doesn't throw things off with supporters. >> i know this is going back in time. she was in daytona on saturday. listen to the last we will hear from her on this, you think? listen to what she said on the record here saturday. >> it is pretty strange. it's pretty strange to put something like that out with
1:12 am
such little information right before an election. in fact, it's not just strange. it's unprecedented and it is deeply troubling. >> i wonder what the strategy will be. some supporters are saying enough with the damn e-mails. quoting bernie sanders on in the primary season. will she address it? >> i think her surrogates and allyia ala allies are coming out and addressing this. eric holder not only said it was a mistake, but he said comey's handling of the situation in july was wrong. i think what they want clinton to do is remind voters why they think it is necessary. >> and harry reid said comey broke the law. violated the hatch act and not
1:13 am
releasing information about trump and the russians. that is not the soft touch on the situation. even if it is not directly from hillary clinton. >> thank you for staying up early for us. it is election uncertainty moving the stocks around the globe. dow futures holding on to gains. trading in europe opened a few minutes ago. worries about the election. europe is opening and asia is closing. two of the most reliable indications are pointing in different directions. according to s&p global market intelligence. with one trading day left in that span, it points to a donald trump victory. another from moody's has

1:33 am
to the clinton investigation. comey was fully briefed on thursday after investigators had determined there was enough cause to seek a new search warrant. those investigators will now work to determine whether there is classified information in the huma abedin e-mails and relevance into the private e-mail server. comey sent a letter to congress on friday. despite calls from the clinton campaign and more information, comey has no plans to say more. >> evan perez, thank you. this morning, nearly 100 former federal prosecutors and high ranking officials, democrats and republicans, have raised concerns about comey's letter to congress. they say it is inconsistent with prevailing department policy. among the signers of the letter, eric holder and former deputy attorney general larry thompson.

>> reporter: john and christine, there is something absent from hillary clinton's remarks on sunday. any mention of fbi director comey or the letter that he sent to capitol hill on friday. there's a reason for that. the clinton campaign as they look at things now. top advisers will continue to attack james comey and continue to try and undercut everything he was trying to do by informing congress. hillary clinton is reverting back to what they were trying to do 12 days ago before this all started. she has a campaign strategy and message that the campaign believes was winning before this happened. a message she needs to get back to now. here's why. early voting. people are voting early especially here in florida. take a listen. >> this is amazing. more than 20 million people have already voted in this election. most of those votes in the last few days, 3 million of those votes from right here in

1:41 am
different tune here. >> it is interesting watching the pivot. we saw mike pence say comey displayed leadership this weekend which is different from what donald trump would have said about him just days before this situation glch. >> it's rigged. the whole thing is rigged. not so rigged anymore. whoever is talked about more on the campaign trail is losing. if the election is about donald trump, he's losing. if the election is about hillary clinton, she's losing. this is going on with hillary clinton. it doesn't change the situation for donald trump. you know, there is the "access hollywood" tape. still the women accusers out there. still the fact he hasn't disclosed his tax returns which every candidate has done since richard nixon. washington post report which looks at his charitiable giving or lack of. it is almost like there is so
1:42 am
much that when one thing comes up about hillary clinton, although a huge thing, it shifts the focus completely. >> this has raised donald trump to the platform he is currently on. this is his base rallied behind. the question is will this make people get on board his campaign who are not yet. that remains to be seen. the polling suggests perhaps not. >> what it means for hillary clinton supporters. i'm trying to figure out what it means for hillary clinton supporters. are you less likely to vote for her? you are less likely to wait in line? this is abc news/washington post poll. >> and among those who are less likely are donald trump supporters to begin with. that is one day of polling. it doesn't look like it makes a difference. over the course of a week, it is hard to tell. >> does it effect her now?
1:43 am
it is interesting to see. >> when voters have gone to the polls as of now, they knew there was an e-mail situation with hillary clinton. this e-mail situation has not proven to be significant in terms of wrongdoing. we don't know what happened. we don't know. >> will we know more by election day? >> as of friday, it looks like we will not. now we have the warrant. >> what if these are duplicate e-mails? >> it is possible. we don't know what they say. the idea this is worse than watergate when we know so little information is just odd and misleading. >> eugene scott, i have a feeling we will talk about this again. great to see you. can the stock market predict the winner of the election? two models in two different directions. since 1944, the s&p 500 falls from august through october, there is an 86% chance the incumbent party losing.
1:44 am
if the s&p rises, the incumbent party wins the election. it is down 2.1%. if that first model is correct, that points to a donald trump victory. wait. another set of metrics point to a clinton win. from moody's. it shows four economic factors in clinton's favor. one, president obama's approval rating. two, gas prices are low at $2.20. three, economic growth. the jobless rate is 5%. we get a new reading that friday. that is the last big economic piece of news before the election. there is a fed meeting. we have breaking news overnight. a manhunt for a suspected killer in oklahoma ended overnight in dramatic fashion. we'll tell you about it.
