Former US Rep. Anthony Weiner faces charges in sexting case

Wearing a navy suit, maroon tie and his wedding band, a tearful Weiner, 52, described his conduct before U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska in New York City.
Weiner, who represented NY in Congress from 1999 to 2011, resigned after revelations that he was sending sexually explicit messages to multiple women. Abedin was not present at Friday's hearing, and a message left with a representative for her seeking comment Friday morning was not returned.
Original story: A former Democratic congressman who was brought down over sexting scandals is scheduled to plead guilty Friday. The guilty plea would likely mean Weiner will have to register a sex offender.
Weiner is facing a single charge of transmitting obscene materiel to a minor. It was during the investigation into Weiner's illicit relationship that federal agents seized his computer and discovered thousands of Clinton emails forwarded there by Abedin.
Weiner's lawyers had been negotiating with federal prosecutors to avoid child pornography charges, the New York Daily News said.
The FBI began investigating the Democrat in September after a 15-year-old North Carolina girl told a tabloid news site that she and the disgraced former politician had exchanged lewd messages for several months. Abedin was among a tight-knit group that had an email address on Clinton's private server. The Comey letters and late-in-the-election investigation have been blamed for Clinton's loss to President Donald Trump, The Los Angeles Times reported.
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. Weiner agreed to surrender his iPhone as part of the plea agreement.
In testimony to Congress two weeks ago, Comey said he felt "mildly nauseous" at the suggestion his actions may have swayed the election, but added that he had no regrets.
Weiner resigned from Congress in 2011 after he was caught lying to the media about his propensity to send sexting messages over Twitter.
