The federal prosecutor in New York City has issued a subpoena for Anthony Weiner’s cell phone and other records on Thursday, according to CNN.

The news of the subpoena from US Attorney Preet Bharara came after reports earlier Thursday that the New York Police Department and the FBI had opened preliminary investigations into the allegation that Weiner had exchanged lewd and explicit text messages and photos with an underage, 15-year-old girl.

The Daily Mail first reported those allegations Wednesday.
