Anthony Weiner, a former congressman, allegedly exchanged explicit texts with an unnamed 15-year-old girl, the New York Post reported.
The girl has accused the 52-year-old of asking her to undress and touch herself on a live Skype chat.
Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin – who is the vice chair of the Clinton campaign – was spotted for the first time in New York City over the weekend after leaving him in the summer following six years of marriage.
And now the Trump campaign have used the opportunity to lay into Hillary’s road to the White House ahead of the first live Presidential debate.
Jessica Ditto, director for the Trump campaign, said: “The announcement by the FBI and New York Police Department that they are investigating close Clinton ally Anthony Weiner’s inappropriate relationship with an under-aged female is extremely disturbing.
“The Clinton campaign should immediately return all campaign contributions from Weiner.”
Weiner gave $550 to the Clinton campaign in two separate donations this year.
The former congressman has the been involved in a series of sexting scandals since 2011, when the New York Democrat was forced to resign his congressional seat.
More than 100million Americans are expected to tune into watch the candidates – despite many detesting both nominees.
Supporters of Mrs Clinton at Coney Island has already told ABC they dislike both of the potential presidents.
One man, who was preparing to watch the debate with popcorn, pizza and ice-cream, said: “You know, one is evil, one is more evil.”
