Life for Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is about to get really difficult.
In recent weeks, she’s found herself in the center of an explosive scandal after her IT staffer was arrested trying to flee the country, which followed the FBI seizing numerous smashed hard drives from his home. Wasserman-Schultz kept Imran Awan employed for months, even after learning he was being investigated by Capitol Police, and now she’s found herself the target of a Congressional probe into her highly corrupt dealings with his family.
This looks like it could be one of the biggest scandals of our time, yet legacy media outlets are pretty much refusing to cover any aspects of it. However, with Congress now pushing the issue, the media will have no choice but to inform Americans of the corruption oozing from Wasserman-Schultz and the Democrat Party.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Congress is advancing an investigation into a growing scandal surrounding IT staffers working for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), who are accused of stealing sensitive computer equipment from House lawmakers’ offices, according to senior congressional sources who told the Washington Free Beacon the Democratic leader’s refusal to answer questions could “merit resignation.”
Congressional leaders have now requested a formal briefing by Capitol Police into its investigation of several Pakistani House IT staffers who are accused of stealing sensitive computer equipment and of illegally penetrating congressional networks.
Imran Awan, one of the staffers who worked for Wasserman Schultz and several other Democratic members of Congress, was arrested this week when trying to travel to Pakistan and charged with bank fraud after a months-long investigation that found he wired nearly $300,000 to that country. Several other staffers tied to Awan are the focus of an investigation into claims they stole sensitive equipment and illegally penetrated the House IT network.
Leading members of Congress are growing frustrated with the pace of the criminal investigation and have moved to conduct their own independent prove into the scandal, according to multiple sources who indicated that the relevant congressional committees are making moves to start an investigation, which could include compelling testimony from Wasserman Schultz, who has been accused of stonewalling on the issue.
Yes, you read that right. Calls for Wasserman-Schultz to resign are increasing, and rightfully so. With each day that passes, we learn just how shady this entire ordeal really was.
As we previously reported, Judge Andrew Napolitano stated on Fox Business that he believes this case goes beyond mere corruption, and actually places our national security at risk because Awan was trafficking stolen information from our government.
This is getting serious now.
