In November of 2016, we reported that Blackwater founder and former Navy SEAL Erik Prince told Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM that according to one of his “well-placed sources” in the New York Police Department, “The NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making” in the Anthony Weiner investigation, but received “huge pushback” from the Justice Department.
“The Justice Department is trying to run out the clock, to elect Hillary Clinton, to prevent any real justice from being done,” he warned.
Now that President Trump is in office Weiner will no longer have the protection that he had under Obama and would have been granted had Hillary Clinton been in office.
The feds are considering a hefty child pornography charge against disgraced ex-politician Anthony Weiner that could send him to prison for at least 15 years, law-enforcement sources told The Post on Tuesday, The New York Post reports.
Weiner has been under investigation since a report last year revealed that he had exchanged lewd messages with an underage girl in North Carolina.
His lawyers have been meeting with Manhattan federal prosecutors in a bid to minimize his potential punishment, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.
The horndog Democrat — who after being forced to resign his House seat in a sexting scandal, derailed a 2013 comeback campaign for mayor by sending lewd texts under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger” — could be charged with production of kiddie porn for allegedly soliciting explicit photos of the teen, sources said.
That crime carries a mandatory minimum prison term of 15 years, and a maximum of 30.
Other charges under consideration include receipt of child pornography, which carries a five-year mandatory minimum, and possession of child pornography, which doesn’t have a mandatory minimum, sources said.
The laptop Weiner used to communicate with the girl was seized by the feds and helped derail Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid when FBI Director James Comey announced in late October that some of her emails to Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, had been found on it.
In August, Abedin announced she was leaving Weiner after The Post exclusively revealed he had sent a woman a lewd photo of himself wearing white underpants and their 4-year-old son lying next to him.
Weiner was forced to resign from Congress in 2011 after accidentally tweeting a crotch shot that he initially tried to blame on a hack of his account.
A spokesman for Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and a lawyer representing Weiner declined to comment.
