Commenting on allegations that New York Rep. Anthony Weiner tweeted an inappropriate image of himself, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly insisted that the FBI needed to be involved in the incident because it could be a national security risk.
“The FBI should be involved in the Weiner story, but they will not confirm anything to us,” he said. “That’s wrong, because national security is involved.”
Weiner has insisted that he did not send the tweet and suggested his account had been hacked.
“It’s clear from the WikiLeaks controversy that some very bad people have compromised U.S. national security by hacking into government websites,” O’Reilly added. “The U.S.A. can not simply stand by and allow congressmen to be attacked by cybercriminals.”
