Anthony Weiner to plead guilty in sexting case

Anthony Weiner to plead guilty in sexting case

Disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner on Friday pled guilty to a charge of transmitting sexual material to a minor, part of a sexting scandal that forced him out of office.

Despite claiming he had changed his ways, Weiner was revealed to have sent other similar messages with women and girls.

That same month, the FBI began investigating Weiner after the North Carolina girl told the news website DailyMail.com that she and Weiner had exchanged lewd messages for several months. According to The Times, the plea agreement could result in Weiner registering as a sex offender but avoiding prison time - the charge he's facing carries a possible sentence of up to 10 years in prison. He signed a plea agreement with prosecutors in which he agreed not to appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months in prison.

Weiner, 52, has been released on bail pending his sentencing on September 8.

The sexting scandal that Hillary Clinton believes affected the outcome of November's presidential election will come to a close today. This discovery prompted then-FBI director James Comey to announce in late October that he was re-opening the investigation into Clinton's emails.

Abedin filed for divorce last summer after a new round of explicit messages emerged that included an image of Weiner's crotch as he lay in bed with their young son.

A lawyer for Abedin did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the N.Y. Post report. Abedin had an email account on Clinton's private server, ABC News reported.

Earlier this month, Clinton blamed Comey's investigation into her emails, along with the posting of campaign manager Podesta's emails on Wikileaks by Russian hackers, for her loss.

Net Neutrality, will rules be rolled back?
Pai said the goal was "to return to the light-touch regulatory framework" that had allowed the internet to flourish. Using this self-created authority, the FCC then imposed net neutrality restrictions on broadband providers.


In testimony to Congress two weeks ago, Mr Comey said he felt "mildly nauseous" at the suggestion his actions may have swayed the election, but added that he had no regrets.

Trump fired Comey days later amid the FBI's probe into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to defeat Clinton, an allegation the president has vehemently denied.

Former congressman Anthony Weiner has left a New York City courtroom after pleading guilty to exchanging sexually explicit texts with a 15-year-old girl.

An effort to resurrect his career progressed in 2013 as he began his candidacy for mayor of NY.

Would Fernando Alonso Actually Leave F1 To Race In IndyCar Full
This season Alonso will skip Formula 1's Monaco Grand Prix, instead focusing his attention on the 101st Indianapolis 500. There's not a lot of drivers who would be willing and able to miss races in their own championships to come do this.


Weiner's attorney, Arlo Devlin-Brown, said in a statement that the former politician "accepted full responsibility for the inappropriate, sexually explicit communications he engaged in early past year".
