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.
Weiner argues that the teenager intentionally saved and documented her conversations with him in order to impact the presidential race – a goal she allegedly admitted to federal investigators.'[O]ne of her goals in capturing Anthony's bad behavior had been to influence the outcome of the presidential election,' said the memo.
Anthony's former colleagues in government have publicly shunned him, and he is the routine target of late night barbs.''[T]his from a man many once lauded as a bright light of Congress, a possible Mayor of New York, and maybe more, before his all-consuming sexting habit destroyed each possibility, most devastatingly in this final criminal iteration of it.'Despite the fallout from the scandal, Weiner's attorneys added that the Daily story finally gave him the push he needed to take his therapy seriously.'The Daily Mail exposé of Anthony's online communications with JD jolted Anthony in away other scandals had not, and led him for the first time to grapple with the depths of his sickness and to find the strength to treat it,' said the memo.
In the 68-page memo, Weiner's legal team admits that in early 2016 the former congressman was exchanging thousands of messages a month with 'dozens' of women he met online, including at least 1,500 messages with one middle-aged woman over the course of just two months.
