The story of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s IT staffer gets more interesting by the day.
We previously reported that Imran Awan was arrested while trying to flee the country, which happened following the FBI seizing smashed hard drives from his former residence. Awan had been the subject of an investigation into Congressional data breeches, and was banned from accessing any computers on Capitol Hill.
However, Wasserman-Schultz kept him on the payroll for months, all of the way up until he was arrested last Monday for bank fraud. Since then, we learned that Awan was employed by at least 30 Democrats in Congress, whose email and passwords he had full access to.
However, while they all fired Awan as soon as they learned of his being under investigation, Wasserman-Schultz did not. For reasons unknown, the Florida Congresswoman was protecting the Pakistani IT aide, and now it may come back to bite her…hard.
Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox Business Monday to speak with Stewart Varney, and he dropped a bombshell that blew the case wide open. Apparently, Awan not only had the email addresses and passwords every member of Congress, but he was selling information to foreign agents as well.
This isn’t good…at all.
From the Gateway Pundit:
Judge Napolitano: He was arrested for some financial crime. That’s the tip of the iceberg. The real crime against him was that he had contact, he had access to emails of every member of Congress and he sold what he found in there. What did he sell and to whom did he sell it. That’s what the FBI wants to know. This may be a very, very serious national security investigation.
Again, this isn’t good at all. Who knows what information he had or what was sold, and who knows which shady actors got their hands on it.
Meanwhile, there’s been a virtual blackout of this story on all of the major media outlets, who would rather run with the debunked Russia story than actually report anything bad about the Democrats.
Talk about priorities…
