Team Clinton was keeping tabs on Anthony Weiner’s sexting habits as far back as 2011, according to WikiLeaks emails.
One disturbing report came to the attention of John Podesta, now chair of Clinton’s presidential campaign, and Neera Tanden, a Senate aide and 2008 presidential campaign staffer, when Jennifer Palmieri, the current campaign communications director, forwarded news of an investigation into Weiner’s contacts with a Delaware teenager.
“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,” read the report dated June 10, 2011.
“Two officers from the New Castle County Police Department arrived at the girl’s home around 4:30 p.m. and asked to speak with the girl’s mother about the daughter’s contact with Weiner. Another officer appeared at the home a short time later.”
