The memo also quoted several of his therapists who said he appears to be working hard on treatment and does not seem likely to reoffend.
The former congressman pleaded guilty to sending obscene materials to a 15-year-old girl in May, after Daily first reported on his sexting relationship with the teenager last September.
'These punitive consequences are directly attributable to what the Department of Justice has conceded, at least in part, are improper disclosures relating to this investigation.'The memo also blames Comey personally for Weiner's anguish.
It noted that the FBI director claimed under oath to congress last spring that Weiner's wife, close Clinton aide Huma Abedin, had forwarded 'hundreds of thousands of emails, some of which contain classified information' to Weiner.
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.
In the memo, Weiner says he should be sentenced to probation – not prison time – because he has already faced severe 'extrajudicial punishment' and national disgrace after his case damaged Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign last year.
His name was removed from court documents made public Thursday, and large portions were redacted. Cote.'I hope the Court will take [our son] into consideration as it weighs all it has to in considering Anthony's sentence,' she added.
Weiner, who pleaded guilty in May to federal obscenity charges related to his online sexual relationship with the teenager, is scheduled to be sentenced later this month.
'[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.
