Not a very convincing story.
"I'm reluctant to say anything definitively about this because I don't know to what extent our system was hacked," he said.
WEINER: I can tell you this. We have a firm that we've hired -- I've seen it, it's -- I've seen it -- a firm that we've hired to get to the bottom of it.
I can tell you this, that photos can manipulated. Photos can be of one thing changed to look like something else. We're going to try to get the bottom of what happened....
BLITZER: Well, we just want to resolve it once and for all. You would know if this is your underpants, for example.
WEINER: The question is -- I appreciate you continuing to flash that at me.
Look, I've said the best I can, that we're going to try to get to the bottom of what happened here. But you know, I just want to caution you -- and you understand this, you're a pro -- that photographs can be manipulated. Photographs can be taken up from one place and put in another place, photos they can be doctored. And I want to make sure that we know for sure what happened here.
It certainly doesn't look familiar to me, but I don't want to say with certitude to you something that I don't know to be the certain truth....
BLITZER: Have you ever taken a picture of yourself like this?
WEINER: I can tell you this, that there are -- I have photographs. I don't know what photographs are out there in the world of me. I don't know what things have been manipulated and doctored, and we're going to try to find out what happened.
If one hasn't been standing around in one's underpants for the camera, you certainly would be able to say with certitude it wasn't you.
Stay tuned as Weiner's story is still a moving target.
