Conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart appeared on CNN Tuesday where he implied Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) had been engaged in inappropriate relationships with multiple young women.
Breitbart said that Dan Wolfe, the source for a lewd picture that allegedly appeared on Weiner’s Twitter account, had been tracking the congressman.
“I don’t know him that well, he has been monitoring relationships that Congressman Weiner has been having with women, young women, who claimed to have relationships with him,” Breitbart explained. “I’m not saying what type of relationships, but people that @RepWeiner follows. Girls that are quite young — younger than the girl in question here — talk openly about Rep. Weiner, who he follows these girls.”
Following Breitbart’s interview, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told host Randi Kaye that he regretted the network allowed Breitbart to make those claims.
“What Andrew Breitbart was insinuating about [Weiner] with young girls and stuff is outrageous,” Toobin said. “And frankly, it’s too bad that he got to say that stuff on CNN.”

"The Republicans House members were fantastic yesterday," Trump tweeted. "It always helps to have a much better case, in fact the Dems have no case at all, but the unity & sheer brilliance of these Republican warriors, all of them, was a beautiful sight to see. Dems had no answers and wanted out!"
