HERE ARE THE TOP STORIES
The FBI has found new Hillary Clinton–related emails while investigating former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner’s sexting.
Clinton called on the FBI to release all information about the new batch of emails related to the probe into her use of a private email server while she served as Secretary of State.
On Friday, after FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to members of Congress about the inquiry, the New York Times reported that the investigation stemmed from a separate case — that of former Congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin.
Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was in office has been a huge issue in the presidential campaign, and one of Republican nominee Donald Trump’s most potent lines of attack on her.
Comey said his agency was investigating a new cache of emails connected to Clinton because he felt an “obligation to do so” and wanted to avoid “misleading” the American people. But senior US Justice Department officials warned Comey that his decision to notify members of Congress about the renewal of the investigation “was not consistent with long-standing practices of the department,” the Washington Post reports.
A little extra: The FBI, Weiner, Iowa, and big smiles: the weirdest and yet most normal day for a campaign and candidate almost bizarrely unfazed by crisis.
Many residents had already left their homes, sleeping in their cars or traveling to the coast, after two earthquakes struck the area last week.
Sunday’s quake was stronger than the magnitude-6.2 tremor that struck near the town of Amatrice in August, killing hundreds. The two quakes, as well as a magnitude-6.1 tremor on Oct. 26, are part of an “ongoing sequence of damaging earthquakes,” the United States Geological Survey said.
And a little extra on Italy’s history of being struck by earthquakes: The country is one of the most seismically active in Europe, Sky News reports.

Mexico’s immigration program has a human rights problem.
After more than 68,000 unaccompanied minors arrived in the US in 2014, American lawmakers put pressure on Mexico to stem their flow. More than 300,000 people have been detained since Mexico put into place the Southern Border Program — a system that would dissuade migrants from heading north, but is rife with abuse.
The program has led to undocumented immigrants — legally allowed to be in Mexico since 2008 — being treated like criminals in overcrowded, jail-like government-run detention centers across the country.
Mexican authorities are doing all they can to dissuade Central American migrants from seeking asylum even when they face death threats at home or qualify for refugee status. It also led to a rise in extortions, kidnappings, and other crimes committed against migrants, many of these perpetrated by authorities, workers at migrant shelters across Mexico say.
