Democrats press U.S. Justice Dept. officials on possible leaks to Giuliani By Sarah N. Lynch and Ma

U.S. Senate Democrats on Monday pressed Justice Department officials about whether some FBI agents may have leaked damaging information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to Rudy Giuliani, now an adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, shortly before the 2016 election.
In response to questions from Democrats during a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, FBI Director Chris Wray said his office was "aggressively investigating a number of leaks," but offered no details.
Monday's Senate hearing followed publication last week of a report by FBI Inspector General Michael Horowitz that concluded that former FBI Director James Comey made a "serious error of judgment" when he announced he was reopening an investigation into candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a private e-mail server a few weeks before the election.

Comey became a controversial figure in the 2016 election, drawing accusations from Republicans and Democrats that his handling of an investigation into Clinton's emails influenced the campaign.
The 500 page Horowitz report also concluded that Comey did not exhibit any political bias in his actions or try to influence the election and did not contest the FBI's decision not to prosecute Clinton for the email affair.
At Monday's hearing, Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy asked Horowitz if his office had investigated "the leaks of FBI personnel who were actively taking steps to sway the election to Mr. Trump" in his report on the FBI's handling of an investigation into Clinton's use of email server.

3. NYPD investigating Weiner's sexting relationship with teen-9/22/16 NY Post

id.
NYPD detectives and the Manhattan DA’s office are also “looking into” allegations that Anthony Weiner engaged in a months-long sexting relationship with an underage girl, sources told The Post Thursday.
The NYPD’s Special Victims Unit is investigating the matter after a 15-year-old high-school student released a trove of sick texts and photos she allegedly received from the disgraced politician.
“We’re looking to see if a crime was committed in New York and if there’s a complainant,” an NYPD official said.
The teen claims Weiner, 52, told her about his “rape fantasies,” sent her pornographic videos and asked her to get naked and masturbate for him over Skype.
Weiner’s estranged wife, Huma Abedin, was seen leaving Weiner’s building at 1 Irving Place about 9 a.m. this morning with their 4-year-old son.
Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance declined to comment on the latest Weiner scandal at a Thursday press conference.
