Rep. Weiner: "I don't know what photographs are out there in the world of me."

Full Interview Transcript THIS IS A RUSH FDCH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: Welcome back. I'm Wolf Blitzer. We're on Capitol Hill with Congressman Anthony Weiner of New York. Congressman, thanks very much for joining us.

REP. ANTHONY WEINER (D), NEW YORK: Thank you, Wolf. It's my pleasure.

BLITZER: Did you send that picture to that college student in Washington state?

WEINER: I did not. She says she never got it and doesn't know me; I don't - certainly don't know her.

This seems like it's a prank to make fun of my name. You know, when your named Weiner, that happens a lot. Got 45,000-some odd Twitter followers, hundreds of people that I follow. This seems like a prank that has gotten an enormous amount of attention.

BLITZER: This is the picture - I'm sure you've seen it by now. Is this you?

WEINER: I can tell you this. We have a firm that we've hired - I've seen it, it's - I've seen it - a firm that we've hired to get to the bottom of it.

I can tell you this, that photos can manipulated. Photos can be of one thing changed to look like something else. We're going to try to get the bottom of what happened. Maybe Jon Stewart last night had it right, unfortunately, but we're going to find out.

Look, this has turned into this kind of international whodunit. What it really is was, I think, a prank. I'm treating it like a prank and trying to get back to the work I'm trying to do. I understand you want to pursue the story, and we're going to try to help you the best we can.

Every day, Wolf, people have stuff like this happen. It's regrettable, but it's true, every day. Every day it doesn't become a federal case. Just because it happened to Congressman Weiner on his personal account doesn't mean the taxpayers should pay for some investigation of this that winds up going on and on for years and years to find out who - wait for it - who sent a picture of someone in shorts on the Internet on the account of a guy named Weiner. I just don't think it rises to that level. I don't think it's a federal case, but I'm going to turn it over to some people who are going to give me advice on what to do next.

========================================

No, Weenie Man, it won't go on for years and cost million of taxpayer dollars. An FBI computer expert will know in 24 hours if you sent the photo or a hacker did it. Records from Twitter will then determine what IP address did it. They will have this wrapped up in just a few days. But you can't afford a criminal investigation, can you. You really weren't hacked, were you?

This little jerk needs to get some type of constructive hobby.

Playing with his computer at night isn’t healthy; but then perhaps it all makes sense seeing as though Weener is a DemocRAT and a loud-mouthed insulting bottom feeder.

'TheBitchIsBack2012.com'?

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

This is seriously stupid. I saw the pic (God save my soul), and unless some pic just happened to be shot from straight down (IE: Taken the picture of yourself), Weiner is the photographer.

(How you doing, DFL?)

Summary of Weiner’s Words as Blitzer destroys his career.

“Somebody hacked my account. Sure, there may be pictures of my bulge available on the internet, but this may or may not be me. Debt limit. It's a prank. I don't know this poor victim in Seattle, and I don't know why a stripper is saying I sent her direct messages. It's a prank. People throw pies at me. Back to business. Medicare. For Pete's sake, will you people just leave me alone so I can get back to secretly sexting young women?”

In German words the second of two consecutive vowels is sounded, i.e., diesel. If this guys name is spelled “Weiner” as all posts seem to use, then it should be pronounce “Whiner”, which is ironically fitting. So, is it spelled Wiener or Weiner?

I suppose that none of us know what pictures of us there may be "out there." Friends, family, and neighbors may have pictures of us we have forgotten about, or were not aware were being taken. We may be in the background of pictures taken by perfect strangers at Disneyland, the zoo, a park, or wherever.

I'd be willing to bet, though, that most of us can be fairly certain that there aren't any pictures of us "out there" of us in our underwear that we aren't aware of. At least, not pictures taken of us over the age of two or so.

“I don’t know what photographs are out there in the world of me.”

Maybe it’s just me..... perhaps I just haven’t gotten out enough over the years.

Of the hundreds, if not thousands of photo’s taken of me, I know for a fact and to a moral certainty, that there is not a single photo of me in my underwear showing off my bulging penis. I must be strange because I didn’t have to go down memory lane to be so certain.

Weiner is certainly a standard bearer for the democrat party.

Notice how Weiner never answers the simple question, "Is this a picture of you?"

That means either 1) he doesn't know if it is him or 2) he knows it is him and he is lying.

If someone took a picture of me in my underwear, I would definitely know about it. I never appear in my underwear in places where I can be photographed. I guess Mr. Weiner does, so he cannot confirm or deny that the pictures are of him.

Is Wolfe’s weiner on the internet?

I can definitely say that in my entire life it has never happened to me.

It sounds like Weiner got caught sexting. Was he using a government phone? Was he in a government office when he did it?

WEINER: I can tell you this. We have a firm that we've hired - I've seen it, it's - I've seen it - a firm that we've hired to get to the bottom of it.

A "firm?"

Not the FBI?

Not the Capitol Police?

Not the Secret Service?

Not to defend Weiner..because I think he did it... In this day and age it is quite possible to have pics out there that you didnt take and you don't know about..even a close up like that one.

This guy looks Jewish. And he married a Muslim???

In other words, there are so many Weiner weiner shots out there that he has absolutely no idea which shot of his weiner this one is...

What I think is this sweet little jewish mama's boy is an internet/porn addict, he got drunk on Manichevitz last friday night and in an alcoholic blackout, got out the digital camera and started taking pictures of his wang after he took a Viagra.

Then he put the "best" one on his yFrog account and started sending them to his cutest "followers"

That's probably all there is to it and he's not lying when he tells Woofie that he doesn't really know how many pictures of his genitals are floating around cyberspace. He just can't remember how many he sent.

How much you want to bet more turn up soon though?

Let’s get to the point: Hands down, this is Weiner’s moment to now play it straight and step up and come clean.
and Wolf shouldn’t have belittled him like that. :-)
