Weiner ‘can’t say with certitude’ if Twit pics were of him

MSNBC is about to come out with what appears to be a terrific interview. Luke Russert was just asking Rep. Anthony Weiner questions about his controversial Tweet, and Weiner appears to actually be answering. Unfortunately, the live feed kept going out — so we will have to wait for MSNBC to air the full video in a bit. In the mean time, we do know that Russert asked Weiner if the lewd pictures that were Tweeted from Weiner’s account to a young lady were of him. Weiner answered:¬† “I can’t say with¬†certitude. My system was hacked. Pictures can be manipulated. Pictures can be dropped in and inserted.”

“It was a prank.” Someone “spoofed me, made fun of me — whatever,” — he said, adding, “this is not a national security matter.” The live video feed shut off at an inopportune time, but it looks like Russert will be out with a good interview in a bit…
