Is it customary for the FBI to investigate cases of sexting? This question has been on my mind

for several days now. Sexting just doesn't seem to me to be a serious enough crime to involve Federal investigators. Would it be because the girl he was texting was underage, is because he has been a Representative in the past, is it because his estranged wife is Hillary's top aide? I don't know enough about this type of investigation to even guess why the FBI was involved in this.

1. It does since it is involving crossing state lines & an under age female.

2. yes...

they get involved when cases cross state lines and violate federal law. Both of which seem to be involved here.

there is nothing unusual about it. It's sometimes lead by a state task force, but the fbi will join in.

3. The FBI gets involved in matters involving what might be child porn or

solicitation of minors using the internet. They manage an entire task force relating to child exploitation. https://www.justice.gov/psc/file/842411/download Since the internet necessarily is a part of interstate commerce these crimes would be within the FBI's federal jurisdiction.

5. Good question

I've never thought about this, I've always thought this would be more of a local or at most State Police investigation

9. From the answers others have given, it was apparently because it crossed state lines and

the girl was a minor.

10. I hope Weiner goes to prison

I hope Weiner rots in prison for the rest of his life.

I feel so terrible for Huma, I hope she's not blaming herself

6. The ONLY reason they're investigating pedophilia across state lines...

 

...is because Putin Puppet, Comey, was put up to it...by PUTIN! Mark my words.

If it wasn't for the Ruskies, Wiener's rabbi would have been asked to take him aside and tell him, ya know, to "cut it out".

When HRC gets in, I hope they reopen the HUAC hearings.

7. I think the MANN ACT comes into play.

Granted, no one was "transported across state lines for immoral purposes" but there were phone/internet communications of a salacious nature between this idiot adult male and a fifteen year old child.

11. I thought the NYPD SVU was investigating

 

And they brought in the FBI when they found Huma's emails.
