Pressure Mounts On Rep. Weiner To Resign Now That Wife Huma Has Returned From Overseas Trip

With Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s wife,Huma Abedin, back in the U.S. from an overseas trip with boss Hillary Clinton–and amid calls from key Democrats, including President Barack Obama to resign–the congressman’s future may be determined within days. NBC’s Luke Russert, on TODAY, said any effort to return to Congress by Weiner would find him surrounded by frustrated and furious fellow Democrats, one of whom said Weiner would be “a man without a country.”

Weiner associates have told reporters the congressman will decide whether or not to step down only after speaking “face to face” with his wife. Weiner’s current location is unknown, with a spokesperson saying only that he has left for treatment–the exact nature of that treatment also unclear.
