    Weiner asks judge to delay sentencing for sexting scandal

    Anthony Weiner is asking a Manhattan Federal judge to delay the sentencing date in the case against him for texting a minor sexually inappropriate messages. In a letter to Manhattan Federal Judge

By Michael Novakhov, editor of the ““ 
These matters, it seems to me,
are of the utmost importance for understanding the nature of these events, and they might be among the key issues in “Trump Investigations“:
My impression and hypothesis, based on the reading of the press reports at that time, is that these issues are interconnected and represent the plan and actions of
the assumed “FBI cabal of Trump supporters” and “Trumpistas“ in the “Trumpistan“, such as :
James Kallstrom and some others of the influential former FBI members, and Rudy Giuliani, not bypassed by the Congressional attention in this matter, and their “circles”, or “connections”, which apparently is a separate subject.
My impressions and hypotheses also are that it was, very likely, the FBI’s (with the possible participation of the broad range of other actors, such as elements in the NYPD and, assumingly, some foreign agents also, trying to influence the elections ), “setup”, a “hoax”, as Weiner himself put it, one of their controversial “sting operations”.
Did the foreign and the hostile Intelligence Services play any role in these “Weiner-Abedin emails operations”?
These operations might have been in their planning stages for some time, it looks like, maybe 2-3 years. They were triggered at that particular moment expeditiously for clearly political purposes: to sway the elections, which tended at that time in Mrs. Clinton’s favor.
The “Weiner sexting case as the FBI, political, or mixed sting operation”, had the goals of tarnishing Mrs. Clinton for her direct relationship and association with Huma Abedin and, indirect ones with Anthony Weiner. Various salacious and lowly rumors were spread at that time about them, intensifying in pitch and crescendo up to the Election day, with the traces to the Russian sources, e.g., TV programs, with the apparently similar purposes of tarnishing them and her. In these circumstances, it is useful to recall that 
My artistic imagination tells me that Mr. Trump could hardly afford, for his temperamental and other reasons, to disregard this attack on him and his budding political reputation, and he and his circles decided, in some, one or another fashion of the decision-making, to 1) get back at Weiner, 2) to silence him, 3) to close this dangerous avenue of pre-election discussions, 4) to ridicule and to tarnish him, and by association, the political rival and opponent, preferably with some sexual innuendos   by the “real stuff”, such as emails and sexting, or the explicit videos, which reminds very much the Putin’s pre-election style (Skuratov case). These tactics are crude but very efficient if performed well, they are geared for the mass political consumption.
So, in my same imagination, mixed with some reasoning and facts, that’s how the Weiner’s sexting case appeared on the political horizon. And, if this hypothesis is correct, and if this case is indeed the result of some kind of the plot and/or political machinations, I, in my very humble opinion of the blogger cum amicus curiae, think, that not only the sentencing should be postponed, but the whole case should be reopened and reinvestigated, which might be of the certain value to all Trump investigations. 
  • The questions with the focus on these, described above circumstances, are: First, the familiar mantra: What did Mr. Trump know about this hypothetical political plot in “Weiner-Abedin emails affair”, and when did he know about it?
  • What and when did the others, including the “T-people”, the “Trump people”, and Kallstrom and Giuliani, know about it?
  • And the whole tree of the follow-up and the surrounding sub-questions, not the least curious among them: How did thousands of emails (not the occasional hundreds of ones, needed for work) end up on the Abedin-Weiner computer, other than been dumped in it deliberately and for the clearly political purposes of swaying the Elections in Mr. Trump favor, and, very possibly, by the hostile intelligence services, such as Russians, Germans, or the significant others?
The proper attention to this aspect of the investigations can bring Trump down more than anything else. 
Bill Palmer, what do you think about it? 
In assessing Mr. Mueller’s Investigation, the journalist Peter Lance made this astute observation: “Given the utter unwillingness to even embrace the reality of the Russian hack by the White House and the slow roll of the GOP controlled Congress, I’m not optimistic that the truth will emerge on Capitol Hill. And as something of an expert on the multiple failures and conflicts-of-interest within the FBI and Department of Justice, I’m loathe to put my faith in Special Counsel Robert Mueller who is, himself, a creature of the Bureau and the DOJ.”
I hope that this is not and will not be the case.
