1. FBI begins latest Clinton-linked email inquiry, promises speed

The FBI has started reviewing newly found emails belonging to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, to determine whether they contained classified information, law enforcement officials said Monday. Agents will use special software to quickly determine whether any of the messages are copies of emails already reviewed during the FBI's investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while she served as secretary of state.
