"early today" starts right now. happy halloween. i'm frances rivera. >> i'm ayman mohyeldin, good morning, everyone. >> it is a halloween trick or treat depending on your politics and it's shaking up the presidential race with just eight days to go. the fbi has obtained a new warrant to review the e-mails related to hillary clinton's private e-mail server. those e-mails were found on a device shared between huma abedin and disgraced former congressman's anthony weiner. the couple is now estranged. james comey is now taking a new look at the e-mails that may be pertinent into the situation due to the e-mails. he announced that via a letter on friday. and this morning, former attorney general eric holder is speaking out with a new op-ed slamming comey for a move, calling him a good man who made
a serious mistake. writing, he has committed a serious error with potentially severe implications. now, a new four-way "washington post"/abc tracking poll shows hillary clinton just one point above donald trump and it comes as both clinton and trump made the renewed investigation the center of the presidential campaign. >> we never thought we were going to say thank you to anthony weiner. this is the biggest political scandal since watergate. >> the director himself has said he doesn't know whether the e-mails referenced in his letter are significant or not. >> in fact, it's not just strange, it's unprecedented and deeply troubling. >> hillary clinton is not the victim. you, the american people, are the victims. now the fbi has found -- you're not going to believe this one -- this just happened. another 650,000 e-mails.
>> we won't be distracted no matter what our opponents throw at us. we're not going to be knocked off course. we know how much this election matters and we know how many people are counting on us. >> meanwhile, clinton's advisors and fellow democrats have hammered director comey to release more e-mails, including whether the director has even eare viewed them himself. top democrat harry reid sent this letter to comey accusing him of breaking federal law and even suggesting the director is concealing information about trump's connection to russia, writing, quote, your actions in recent months have demonstrating a disturbing double standard for the sensitive treatment of information with what appears to be a clear intent to aid one political party over another. now, a democratic congressman is demanding comey's resignation. the fbi has not responding to reid's letter or the congressman's demand, but clinton continues to campaign
holding concerts and get out the vote events in key battleground states like florida. >> ladies and gentlemen, the next and first female president of the united states. hillary clinton! >> but now republicans like mike pence are not just going after hillary clinton. they're nailing democrats and using it as a tool to maintain control over congress. >> we need you to re-elect and elect strong republican leaders to represent us in washington, d.c. and in the state house. we need to make sure that nancy pelosi doesn't get anywhere near that speaker's gavel. >> however, recent polling now shows that the e-mail scandal may not be as critical as some may think. in fact, some 63% of voters now say that the recent news makes no difference regarding their vote to support clinton. 34% say it is less likely to impact their vote. >> and new early vote tallies may be benefitting both
candidates, with over 21 million votes that have already been cast, the democrats are outpacing republicans in key swing states like colorado, north carolina, and ohio. top dems in places like florida, arizona, and pennsylvania. >> now, to some overnight breaking news. the intense manhunt for the suspected wanted in a double murd in oklahoma is over. michael vanls was killed last night. a county sheriff was injured in one of the exchanges. the local fire department says his injuries are nonlife threatening. vance had been on the run since october 23rd when he shot two officers before stealing their cop car. he then shot another woman and took her car before allegedly killing his aunt and uncle, both of whom authorities say vance may have tried to mismember. >> the cubs are still alive. they won game five in front of
