Anthony Weiner cries while apologizing in court

The government is seeking a term of 21 months to 27 months in jail on the single count of transferring obscene material to a minor.

The disgraced former Democrat politician, 52, is being investigated over his online communications with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.

As part of the plea agreement, he will have to comply with the Sex Offender Registry and Notification Act.

The official wasn't authorized to speak about the plea bargain because the criminal charges had yet to be filed publicly with the court and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Weiner was already in federal custody ahead of the hearing. The Daily Mail reported she said he sent her numerous photos, one of him in a pool and at least one bare-chested.

The investigation infamously intersected past year with the 2016 presidential campaign, when agents seized devices and found emails between Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin, Weiner's estranged wife and a top Clinton adviser.

In late October, just days before the election, FBI director James Comey stunned the country by announcing that his agency was reopening its closed investigation into Clinton's handling of State Department business on a private email server so it could analyze the newly discovered correspondence.

This isn't a third-world country, and this kind of thing can not go unresponded to diplomatically, and maybe in other ways". In April, the USA had criticized Turkish airstrikes against Kurdish militants in Syria and Iraq.

That inquiry was brief.

Though Mr Comey said soon afterwards that the emails contained nothing to change his view that Mrs Clinton could not be charged with a crime, the development was seen as influencing voters in the run-up to polling on 8 November. The Comey letters and late-in-the-election investigation have been blamed for Clinton's loss to President Donald Trump, The Los Angeles Times reported.

He will enter the plea at 11 a.m., said David Schaefer, a spokesman for the law firm Covington & Burling, whose attorney, Arlo Devlin-Brown, is representing Weiner.

Weiner had previously been caught sexting, paving the way to his resignation as a congressman in 2011.
