Disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner handed his electronic devices over to a private investigations firm based in Manhattan as the fed probe into his sexting with a minor was heating up in 2016, newly unsealed federal court documents show.
A 2016 search warrant for Weiner’s devices was unsealed in Manhattan federal court on Thursday along with an attachment describing the parameters of the search into Weiner’s communications with minors.
The warrant, signed on September 26th 2016, ordered FBI agents to search three of Weiner’s devices: an iPhone and iPad and a laptop computer — all of which had been “transferred” by Weiner to Granite Intelligence, based in midtown Manhattan, three days earlier, according to the papers.

FBI sorted through 600,000 emails over 3 days and found no laws were broken. What could he possibly have?
“Because of Weinergate and the sexting scandal, the NYPD started investigating it. Through a subpoena, through a warrant, they searched his laptop, and sure enough, found those 650,000 emails. They found way more stuff than just more information pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing,” Prince claimed.
“They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times,” he said.
“The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince explained.

Weiner is currently in jail for the "sexting" charges.
Bet new charges get filed soon and include Wife Huma.
Wasn't he reportedly "cooperating" with the authorities? As in singing like a canary? Or maybe I'm misremembering...
