Federal authorities in New York and North Carolina are investigating online communications between Weiner and a 15-year-old girl.

The official said on Friday that the emails referenced by FBI Director James Comey surfaced during that investigation. The official was familiar with the investigation but was not authorized to discuss the matter by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Comey told members of Congress on Friday that newly discovered emails believed to be related to the Clinton case were prompting a new review.
