The teenage girl who allegedly received sexually explicit text messages from Anthony Weiner is very “upset” with FBI director James Comey for trying to tie her to Hillary Clinton’s email controversy.
In an open letter published by Buzzfeed, the unnamed girl writes to Comey, “I now add you to the list of people who have victimized me. I told my story originally to protect other young girls that might be a victim of online predators.”
In your letter, you chose to use a vague approach, meaning the media had to keep searching to try and find out what evidence you had uncovered and how. Every media outlet from local to national has contacted me and my family to get my “story.” Why couldn’t your letter have waited until after the election, so I would not have to be the center of attention the last week of the election cycle?
In his “cooperation” with you and with his love of the spotlight, Anthony Weiner has given information that led to the media finding me. You have assisted him in further victimizing me on every news outlet. I can only assume that you saw an opportunity for political propaganda.
The girl, now 16, writes, “I thought your job as FBI Director was to protect me. I thought if I cooperated with your investigation, my identity as a minor would be kept secret.” “That is no longer the case. My family and I are barraged by reporters’ phone calls and emails. I have been even been blamed in a newspaper for causing Donald Trump to now be leading in some polls and costing Hillary the election,” she continued.
Her letter concludes:
It’s time that the FBI Director puts his victims’ rights above political views.
— Girl that lost her faith in America
P.S. To all reporters: AP, FOX, CBS, NBC, and all other media outlets, please respect my position and stop interrupting my life!
The girl and her father said he didn’t think local FBI agents were aware of Comey’s plans. Her father told BuzzFeed News that he was left feeling “angry that the local folks had interviewed my daughter for six hours that same day about intimate details from her previous interactions with a pervert and then released the story of Weiner’s server before we could drive home from the site where she was interviewed.”’
“Anthony Weiner is the abuser. Your letter helped that abuse to continue. How can I rebuild my life when you have made finding out my ‘story’ the goal of every reporter?,” she said.
Comey victimized a young girl who was already a victim. She was used as a political football in order to sway the election. Party before country is a thing with the FBI director. Party before innocents. Party before decency. Comey’s vague and bizarre letter which he sent to Congress came just eleven days before the election. We see right through you, Comey.
