Weiner's memo also describes the 15-year-old girl as a manipulative fame-seeker – writing that she baited Weiner into exchanging sexual messages with her because she wanted to influence the U. The FBI launched an investigation into Weiner's communications with the teen after Daily revealed it last September.
While examining Weiner's laptop, investigators stumbled over new emails from Hillary Clinton's private server – prompting FBI Director James Comey to reopen the Clinton email investigation just days before the election.
The memo also said Weiner had been punished enough by his public humiliation after the news of the scandal broke last year, calling him a 'walking, talking billboard against sexting with a minor, and would be that even without a federal conviction.''A period of incarceration is not necessary to deter the public from following in Anthony's footsteps.
Simply put, no one wants to be Anthony Weiner, — he is a national pariah,' said the memo.'Since his communications with [the underage girl] have become public, Anthony has been the subject of widespread public flogging and even a death threat in the popular media.
The scale of his sexting means that the images which have emerged - one of him in bed in a state of arousal with his son beside him - hardly qualify as even the tip of the iceberg.
It says his 'self-destructive compulsion' was driven by mental illness, including a 'mixed personality disorder' that was recently diagnosed by a therapist. It says their relationship started when Weiner was stuck at home in New York during a record blizzard and claims that she pestered him to Skype.
He also says he should avoid jail time because he became a 'national pariah' after the FBI investigation into his sexting prompted the bureau to reopen its investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server just days before the presidential election.
