Former U . S . Congressman Anthony Weiner was expected to plead guilty in federal court in New York on Friday, months after U . S . prosecutors opened an investigation into his alleged " sexting " with a 15-year-old girl that eventually played a role in the U . S . presidential election.

Federal agents seized Weiner's laptop during the probe and discovered a batch of emails from his wife, Huma Abedin, a senior aide to Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president in 2016.

As a result, James Comey, then the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, announced in late October that the agency was reviewing the messages to determine whether to reopen its investigation into Clinton's handling of official correspondence.

Clinton has blamed her loss to Republican Donald Trump in part on Comey's announcement, even though Comey said two days before the election in November that the review had uncovered no new evidence.
