Things just keep getting worse and worse for Hillary Clinton. Another Wikileaks data dump revealed that Hillary Clinton and her team knew that disgraced politician Anthony Weiner was sexting an underage girl… and they knew five years ago.
John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chair, received an e-mail from Jennifer Palmieri, the Clinton campaign communications director, in June of 2011 detailing an investigation into Weiner’s conversations with a 17-year-old girl in Delaware. Palmieri detailed for Podesta the details of Weiner’s messages, and also linked a Fox News report for him to read. “Police on Friday afternoon came to the home of a 17-year-old high school junior to ask her about direct online communications she has had with Rep. Anthony Weiner,” the report said.
All Podesta did was reply “Oof.”
At the time of Weiner’s messages with the underage girl, he was married to Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who is directly implicated in the re-opened FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. The underage girl told Weiner that she liked married men, and openly expressed her feelings for him. Both Weiner and Abedin are both being investigated now, as Abedin’s laptops have been seized as part of the investigation.
Abedin ultimately separated from Weiner in August, after he was again caught sexting another woman. His lewd behavior destroyed his political career, both in Congress and his campaign for mayor of New York.
