Weiner's attorneys filed a lengthy court memo which was made public in full on Thursday documenting their client's years as a self-proclaimed 'sex addict' and asking a judge for leniency when the former congressman is sentenced for sending obscenity to a minor later this month.
Although the girl told Weiner she was in high school, the former congressman told her in messages that she made him 'hard' and said he wanted to 'bust that tight p***y so hard and so often that you would leak and limp for a week.'The teenager said in an interview that Weiner would also chat with her on a video messaging program, during which he asked her to dress up as a school girl and talked about his 'rape fantasies.' Weiner also sent her photos of him shirtless and posing provocatively.
The story prompted an FBI investigation into Weiner, during which investigators stumbled across previously undisclosed emails from Clinton's private email server on Weiner's laptop.
Weiner's attorneys said this was an exaggeration because Abedin had actually forwarded a 'smaller number' of emails to Weiner with only two that contained classified information.'While the FBI quietly corrected this testimony days the damage had already been done, prompting calls to investigate Anthony and his wife that continue to this day,' said the memo.
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.
'[T]he immediate, improper disclosure that Anthony was under federal investigation and the subsequent improper injection of this case into the presidential election may well have helped [the 15-year-old] realize that apparent ambition.'He also blasted investigators for leaking information about his case – and the fact that Clinton's emails were found on his laptop – which caused him personal turmoil, shunning from political allies, and even led to him receiving a death threat.
He said the 'improper disclosures' caused 'immense pain' to his family and turned Weiner into a 'political pariah.''[W]hile Anthony was blessed that some in public life have provided letters to the Court in his support at sentencing, many others did not, citing not the offense conduct but Anthony's status as a political pariah,' said the memo.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.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.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.It is for [our son] that I write this letter,' she wrote.'Whatever else Anthony has done, he loves [our son].'Abedin, a long-time aide to Hillary Clinton, acknowledged in the letter that she was devastated by Weiner's actions and believes he should still face consequences.'This is not a letter I ever imagined I would write, but, with Anthony, I have repeatedly found myself in circumstances I never imagined.
