John at Verum Serum says Weiner has gone “Full Fonz”:Weiner Jumps the Shark: Can’t Say “With Certitude” if Photo is Him:
Rep. Weiner just gave an interview to Luke Russert of NBC in which, when he was asked if hat was him in the photo, said:
You know, I can’t say with certitude. My system was hacked. Pictures can be manipulated, pictures can be dropped in and inserted.
Video is here.
Meanwhile, according to The Politico, Weiner has hired a firm to investigate…(maybe they will be able to uncover whose junk was tweeted?):
The New York lawmaker continued to claim that his Twitter account was hacked.
“My system was hacked, pictures can be manipulated, dropped in and inserted,” he said. “One reason I asked a firm to look at what the heck happened here … is to see maybe something was manipulated, maybe something was dropped in.”
Calling My Shot:Prediction:
Weiner will claim he doesn’t want to trouble the FBI, or the national intelligence/security apparatus, which really should be interested in a hack of a top-secret-plus level clearance Congressman, and will pay a private firm he controls and he pays with his own money, to look into this matter.
48 hours later this firm will announce he was hacked, but beyond that, the trail goes cold. Fiddlesticks!!!
