3:31 am
it was a halloween spooktacular. with plenty of treats, some tricks and one high-profile elimination. the details ahead in "the skinny." it is tuesday, november 1st. that pool video is just so dramatic. >> you better never leave me in a swimming pool with a crocodile. if the crocodile doesn't get you, i will. >> and every man knows that, except that guy. all right. >> we'll let you know how that one ends. yeah. let's talk about politics and election day. like we said, one week away. the clinton and trump campaigns, kicking it into high gear, while the fbi works on its renewed investigation of e-mails possibly linked to the clintons private server. >> investigators have duplicated the hard drive of the lap tot used by anthony weiner, the estranged husband of huma abedin. the e-mails are being separated from the hundreds of thousands
3:32 am
that belonged to weiner. the focus is an abedin's work-related e-mails during the time of clinton's secretary of state. abedin's lawyer says she has not been contacted by the fbi. >> donald trump is making the most of the renewed investigation. he offered thanks for monday, while campaigning in michigan. >> thank you, huma. thank you, huma. do you think right now that hillary clinton is happy with the services of huma? i don't think so. thank you, anthony. i never liked you, anthony. i never liked you. but thank you very much. >> trump also claimed electing clinton would spark a constitutional crisis. saying she might face a trial as president. >> for her part, clinton is trying to put the fbi investigation in the background, telling voters she is more qualified to lead the country. it's "your voice, your vote." we get the details from abc's cecilia vega.
3:33 am
>> reporter: in ohio, where voting is under way, hillary clinton attacking the firestorm engulfing her campaign. >> i'm sure many of you might be asking what this e-mail story is about. and why in the world the fbi would decide to jump into an election, with no evidence of any wrongdoing, with just days to go. that's a good question. >> reporter: clinton, putting on a defiant front. >> i'm sure they will reach the same conclusion they did when they looked at my e-mails for the last year. there is no case here. >> reporter: clinton's team now counting on their get-out-the-vote operation. more than 23 million votes already cast. democrats outpacing republicans in battlegrounds like north carolina and nevada. but in all-important florida, where clinton campaigned this weekend -- it is republicans with a slight
