Transcript for New Anthony Weiner Documentary Reveals Sexting Scandal Details
Now to a new documentary about former congressman Anthony Weiner and the sexting scandal that forced him out of office. He was married to one of Hillary Clinton's top aides and now questions whether it will cause her campaign problems. Reporter: The Anthony Weiner scandal was one of the strangest political episodes of our time. This documentary with extraordinary behind-the-scenes footage dredging it all up again at the worst possible time for Hillary Clinton and her closest aide. Politics as much as life, timing is everything. How many women were they? What I would like to talk about is housing in the bronx. Reporter: For congressman Anthony Weiner and his wife huma abedin, Hillary Clinton's closest aide and constance presence at her side a new documentary about his sordid tale couldn't come at a worst time. Today I'm announcing my resignation. I did the dumb thing. Reporter: Sexting scandal that ended his congressional career in 2011 featured heavily in the film directed by his former aide josh kriegman shot with extraordinary access, it documents Weiner's attempt at redemption, his run for New York City mayor in 201. His wife front and center through it all. Standing by Weiner as woman after woman came forward with stories of his explicit online messages. Just a quick thing. You will look happy. Reporter: Weiner initially denied everything, even whether it was him in the lewd picture that started it all. Look, here's what -- I'm reluctant to say to you definitively anything about this. If somebody had a picture of me -- my underwear, I think I would know -- What if it was a picture of you that was manipulated or that was taken from your account or put into your account. But let me ask you, I'm telling you -- Reporter: The documentary captures him as he lashes out at critics. You're a real . It takes one to know one, jackass. Reporter: And owns his tanking reputation. This is the worst. Doing a documentary on my scandal. Reporter: Weiner recently told Larry king he knows he signed away the rights to the footage gathered by kriegman but he doesn't approve of the way his wife is depicted. It is what it is. I haven't seen it. The only thing I'd say is that it is -- they're selling it based on little snippets of my wife who didn't cooperate is in the background of scenes apparently which I think is a little bit dishonest. Reporter: His race for mayor ended when he was caught sexting yet again bringing more ridicule including from a certain real estate developer in New York. We don't want perverts elected in New York City. Reporter: And now with the documentary another chance for trump to bring up Hillary Clinton's own response to her husband's infamous sex scandal. Hillary Clinton has said she's not going to respond to the personal attacks about her but a test will be if he starts talking about her top aide, will she have to respond or let those attacks on her sit out there with no response? That will be a question for the campaign. Reporter: We are told Anthony Weiner still has not seen the film and as you can imagine, Lara, neither huma abedin nor Hillary Clinton had any comment. Yeah, not surprising. Thank you very much, Jon.
