Disgraced former Democrat congressman Anthony Weiner is set to plead guilty to transferring obscene material to a minor today.
This according to a report from the New York Times and based on the standard anonymous sources.
Mr. Weiner is of course the husband of Hillary Clinton’s intimate aide Huma Abedin and it was his computer upon with thousands of emails were discovered that led to former FBI Director James Comey’s October surprise.
While Hillary raged at Comey and her henchmen Robby Mook and John Podesta outlined a strategy to blame it all on Russia – which spread like wildfire – it was the horny pervert Weiner who managed to dodge any blame for Hillary’s grand flameout.

The New York Times reports “Anthony Weiner to Plead Guilty to Resolve ‘Sexting’ Inquiry”:
Anthony D. Weiner, the former Democratic congressman whose “sexting” scandals ended his political career and embroiled him in a tumultuous F.B.I. investigation of Hillary Clinton before the election, is to appear in a federal courtroom in Manhattan on Friday to enter a guilty plea.
The information has not been made public but was related by two people who have been briefed on the matter and asked not to be identified.
Mr. Weiner will plead guilty to a single charge of transferring obscene material to a minor, pursuant to a plea agreement with the United States attorney’s office in Manhattan, one of the people said. Mr. Weiner surrendered to the F.B.I. early Friday morning.
The federal authorities have been investigating reports that, beginning in January 2016, Mr. Weiner, then 51, exchanged sexually explicit messages with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.
The plea covers conduct by Mr. Weiner from January through March of last year, the person said. A likely result of the plea is that Mr. Weiner would end up as a registered sex offender, although a final determination has yet to be made, the person added.
The charge carries a potential sentence of between zero and 10 years in prison, meaning Mr. Weiner could avoid prison. The ultimate sentence would be determined by a judge.
That Mr. Weiner could end up being formally identified as a registered sex offender would normally be an outrage and lead to ostracism by decent folks, he is after all a liberal so all will be forgiven.
With their embrace of identity politics as an ideology with a fervor, the Dems have made clear that they are the party of sexual degenerates and Weiner will be welcomed back with open arms.
He also will likely slither off the hook without having to spend any jail time which would be outrageous but in a society that has two legal systems – one for the elite and one for everyone else – that’s just the way that it is.
This is a developing story.
