'The warrant connected to the FBI search that cost Clinton the election shouldn’t have been granted, said legal experts who reviewed the document released on Tuesday. 'When Comey made the announcement, the bureau did not have a warrant to search a laptop that agents believed might contain evidence of criminal activity.' The FBI set out to rectify that two days later, when agents applied for a warrant to search the laptop -- already in their possession.' 'The unsealed warrant “reveals Comey’s intrusion on the election was as utterly unjustified as we suspected at time.' Clinton’s lead in the polls shrank in the wake of this announcement. Then, just days ahead of election, the FBI announced its search was complete, and it had found no evidence of criminal activity. Clinton officials believe that second announcement damaged her as much as, or more than, the first.'
