Weiner spoke with a gaggle of reporters twice on Tuesday about the alleged hack of his Twitter account, but wouldn't explain why he isn't requesting a criminal investigation. He also wouldn't say whether or not he sent the tweet that contained a lewd photo of a crotch to Gennette Nicole Cordova a college student in Washington state.

In a rare move, CNN aired the entire, unedited exchange between reporters and the congressman. Watch the entire interview above.
