‘He has very little standing between him and the abyss — other than what he knows’
From Washington Times
Conservative author Mark Steyn says the application of Occam’s razor to emails federal investigators found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop computer dictate that he was trying to inoculate himself against prosecution.
Law enforcement officials confirmed over the weekend that FBI Director James Comey secured a search warrant allowing agents to sift through thousands of documents linked to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s secret email server. Mr. Steyn said in a new op-ed titled “Occam’s Weiner” that reasonable people will conclude emails belonging to estranged wife and Clinton adviser Huma Abedin were necessary for a man who would send text messages to a teenage girl in North Carolina.
“Huma and Weiner are so close to the Clintons that they were married by Bill. To the casual observer, Mr Weiner was merely the Mini-Me to Bill Clinton’s distinguishing characteristics,” the best-selling author said Monday. “Alas, he lacked the Clintons’ luck, and never enjoyed the same level of protection. It’s not unreasonable to conclude that, somewhere in the latter stages of this bumpy half-decade descent, Anthony Weiner decided it might be prudent to have an insurance policy.”
Mr. Steyn, who is preparing to launch “The Mark Steyn Show” on CRTV, added that Mr. Weiner’s “insatiable sexual proclivities” over the years killed his political dreams and may soon cost him his freedom.
“He has very little standing between him and the abyss — other than what he knows about his wife and her patrons,” Mr. Steyn said. “And that’s the least worst interpretation. The other is that, given the world knew Huma Abedin’s husband has a taste for girls a third of his age, someone sooner or later was going to apply a little pressure to him. Maybe even those Russians the Democrats have been bleating on about for weeks.”
Mrs. Clinton’s Republican opponent, Donald Trump, shared the same analysis in late August when it was announced that Mrs. Abedin would divorce her husband.
“I only worry for the country in that Hillary Clinton was careless and negligent in allowing Weiner to have such close proximity to highly classified information,” Mr. Trump wrote Aug. 29. “Who knows what he learned and who he told? It’s just another example of Hillary Clinton’s bad judgment. It is possible that our country and its security have been greatly compromised by this.”
Mr. Trump also published a prescient tweet Aug. 3 when he wrote, “It came out that Huma Abedin knows all about Hillary’s private illegal emails. Huma’s PR husband, Anthony Weiner, will tell the world.”
