The FBI is reopening the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server based on newly-found emails that came from devices owned by Anthony Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin, an FBI source told Fox News' Ed Henry Friday.

FBI Director James Comey notified Congress earlier in the day that the bureau had recovered emails in "connection with an unrelated case ... that appear to be pertinent to the investigation" into Clinton's private server.

Ed Henry reported on "Shepard Smith Reporting" that an FBI source confirmed to him that the "unrelated case" is indeed the bureau's investigation into the Weiner sexting scandal.

The FBI is investigating text messages that the former New York congressman sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace reacted this afternoon, saying that the new information must be "substantial" for Comey to announce this "bombshell" 11 days from the election.

He said that Comey previously stated to Congress that the investigation was complete and now today he is amending the testimony. 

Wallace said that Abedin was Clinton's closest aide at the State Department and during this campaign. 

"She is as close as you can get to Hillary Clinton," he said.

He also emphasized how extraordinary it is that Weiner's alleged 'sexts' are now involved, saying "you couldn't write that kind of a [movie] script."
