Luke Rosiak at the Daily Caller has done a phenomenal job covering the Debbie Wasserman IT Aide Scandal. That’s especially apparent when you compare his coverage to that of the mainstream media. They haven’t touched it.
If you are behind. Here’s a basic overview.
From New York Post:
Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say.
What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects.
Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.
Think you would have heard about this case if were Republicans were involved?
Not only is this investigation going on but the IT aide under investigation was arrested for bank fraud while trying to leave the country for Pakistan with a bunch of cash.
Shady to say the least.
Now, there is a new development brought to you by Luke Rosiak.
From The Daily Caller:
The indicted husband-and-wife team of former IT aides to Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz sat directly across from each other at the defendants’ table in federal court Friday in Washington, D.C., but refused to look at each other.
Even as they are co-defendants in a U.S. case, Imran Awan’s own wife, Hina Alvi, has become the latest person to accuse him of fraud, filing papers against him in Pakistani court, according to Pakistani news channel ARY.
The couple were in U.S. court to face bank fraud charges related to sending money to Pakistan around the time they learned they were under investigation for abuses related to their work managing IT for members of Congress. Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport in July attempting to board a flight to Pakistan.
Another plot twist in an already fascinating case.
Clearly, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has questions to answer.
Will she be held accountable?
Time will tell.
