Federal investigators have obtained a warrant to begin searching a large cache of emails belonging to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, law enforcement officials, as prosecutors and FBI agents scrambled under intense public pressure to assess their significance before Election Day.

Abedin spent the weekend holed up at her luxury New York apartment amid speculation that Clinton will finally be forced to sever her relationship with the woman she has long seen as her surrogate daughter.

“We of course stand by her,” her campaign chairman, John Podesta, said on Saturday when asked whether Abedin would step down from the campaign.

Clinton hasn’t asked Abedin what was on​ the computer that the FBI seized in its investigation of ​estranged hubby, ex-Rep. ​Anthony Weiner, according to the candidate’s campaign manager Robby Mook.

“Weiner.” The name became almost a curse word among senior Democrats over the past two days, as the disgraced congressman unexpectedly surfaced in the final stretch of the presidential contest. The news resurrected memories of previous Weiner scandals.

During a TWC News/NY1 debate last night between U.S. Sen Chuck Schumer and his GOP opponent, Wendy Long, Schumer pronounced himself “appalled” — at least four times — that the FBI director had disclosed that he was again looking into the matter of Clinton’s emails without yet knowing the significance of a newly discovered batch.

Long also criticized the FBI director, but also took things one step further by describing Weiner as Schumer’s “old protégé and friend.”

“I think it comes down to money,” Long told reporters after the debate of her still-unknown status before cracking a smile. “I wish if Chuck Schumer really hated money in politics that much and thought it was unfair, he could just write me a check for half of that $28 million and make it perfectly fair and we’d have a great race.”

Here’s a link to the full debate, which was held at Union College in Schenectady.

FBI agents investigating Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state knew early this month that messages recovered in a separate probe might be germane to their case, but they reportedly waited weeks before briefing the FBI director.

Harry Reid, the top Democrat in the Senate whom Schumer is in line to replace, accused the FBI director of violating federal law by showing favoritism to “one political party over another” by publicly stating that he had been made aware of new evidence in the Clinton email investigation.

Schumer is so confident of re-election that he is steering millions from his campaign coffers to shore up other Democrats so he can become the Senate majority leader, so far spending about $8 million from his campaign and joint fundraising accounts to assist various candidates.

Clinton has established a slim edge over Donald Trump in early-voter turnout in several vital swing states, pressing her longstanding advantages in state-level organization and potentially mitigating the fallout from her campaign’s latest scrap with the FBI. At least 21 million people have voted so far across the country.

Voters who haven’t yet settled on a candidate in the presidential election are more Republican-leaning as a group than Democratic, suggesting that Trump can make last-minute gains if he can persuade those voters to return to their home party.

Trump, the candidate at the top of the GOP ticket, may be hurting some other GOP candidates across the country, he appears to be helping NY-23 Rep. Tom Reed and other Republicans in his native New York. And that fact further narrows the Democrats’ already slim chance of winning the 30 or more seats they need to reclaim control of the House.

The NY Post profiles the NY-19 battle between Democrat Zephyr Teachout and Republican John Faso, saying it could determine which party controls the House next year.

The monumental traffic jam at the foot of the George Washington Bridge was never supposed to be Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s problem. As the federal trial of two of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s allies in the bridge scandal churns toward a verdict, however, the Hudson River has not proven to be an especially effective moat.

In the run-up to the Nov. 8 election that will determine party control of the New York State Senate, some influential and deep-pocketed companies, unions and trade groups are hedging their bets like gamblers nervous about the odds, giving money to both sides of the fight.

Three Senate races in Nassau County and one in the Hudson Valley will likely determine which party is in the majority come January, Democrats and Republicans agree.

In an unusual move, Cuomo disseminated a questionnaire on 15 issues to legislative candidates from his own party seeking his backing.

De Blasio has said he is not getting involved in this year’s state Senate elections, but the firm of Jonathan Rosen – one of his “agents of the city” is, via a Super PAC created by Airbnb.

In May 2014, about 15 people sat at a Manhattan restaurant and listened to Cuomo give a very expensive speech. A number had paid $25,000 to attend. More than two years later, the event is drawing new attention because it was hosted by Todd Howe, the disgraced lobbyist who pleaded guilty in September to a raft of federal felony charges in a public corruption scandal.

A Daily News review of official minutes for the MTA board shows that Larry Schwartz, a former top aide to Cuomo who was appointed in June 2015, has been absent from dozens of hearings and meetings.

Tom Suozzi, the Democratic candidate seeking to replace retiring Long Island Rep. Steve Israel in Congress, was angling for a job in Clinton’s presidential campaign last year — but Clinton’s chairman just yawned at the offer, according to correspondence obtained by Wikileaks.

Cuomo endorsed Suozzi, a former Nassau County executive and onetime gubernatorial candidate, via a statement released nine days before voters head to the polls.

Newsday endorsed Long Island Republican Rep. Peter King, calling him “one of the loudest and most powerful voices for moderation and bipartisan leadership remaining in the increasingly extreme GOP.”

The Long Island paper is also backing Democrat Anna Throne-Holst against Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin.

Food & Water Watch, an advocacy group part of the The Stop the Cuomo Tax campaign, is paying for a large billboard against the governor on I-787 in Albany in an effort “to shame him into dropping his proposed nuclear bailout plan,” a spokesman for the group said.

John Samuelsen, president of Transport Workers Union Local 100, said that while he considers his relationship with Cuomo to be “good,” and MTA Chairman Tom Pendergast to be a “knowledgeable guy,” he still isn’t convinced labor and management will have “an easy contract negotiation.”

Doctors point to part of a survey routinely given to patients on Medicare or Medicaid as just one example of how emphasizing pain treatment puts pressure on them to overprescribe painkillers.

No one had seemed more excited for the pair of Rossini operas at the Metropolitan Opera on Saturday than Roger Kaiser, a Texas opera buff who, the police believe, inadvertently created a terrorism scare that forced the Met to cut its matinee short and cancel its evening performance.
