Federal prosecutors in New York have issued a subpoena for former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner's cell phone and other records, CNN reported Thursday.

In the bombshell news, CNN reported both the FBI and the New York Police Department have opened preliminary investigations of allegations Weiner – the estranged husband of a top Hillary Clinton aide, Huma Abedin – exchanged sexually explicit text messages with an underage girl.

Citing unnamed law enforcement officials, CNN reported prosecutors in the office of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara have now issued a subpoena in the case.

The Daily Mail first reported Weiner had exchanged sexually suggestive messages – and bare-chested photos of himself – with the high school student over the course of several months.

And though Weiner said he had "likely been the subject of a hoax," he also expressed remorse over repeated online sexual misadventures.

Weiner's political career ended after the first of several sexting scandals emerged in 2011.
