DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ AND THE DNC FIND THEMSELVES IN A LOT OF TROUBLE VIA AWAN …
Even though the liberal MSM does not want to cover this story because it does not fit their Russia-Trump narrative, it makes no matter as the story is coming out anyhow. The Debbie Wasserman Schultz/Pakistani IT Scammers is a huge story and there is much, much more than bank fraud going on here. Every wonder why the DNC never gave up the servers to the FBI? The LEFT has continued this false pursuit of President Trump and the Russians, when right under their very noses they have the story of stories. The only problem, the corruption, collusion and cabal is with the Democrats.
At last, I am in a position to help the New York Times. It’s a good feeling. As anyone who has stumbled upon their website knows, our former paper of record, underscoring its insatiable appetite to provide the public with all the news that fits its agenda, prominently features a solicitation for hot tips: Got a confidential news tip? it asks. Click and amaze the world.
I have a tip, an important one, though I cannot in truth call it “confidential.” Over the last few days, in fact, it has been blazoned across the samizdat press, outlets that your typical Times reader may never have heard of, or, if he has, that he reflexively discounts.
What’s it all about, Alfie? Computer hacking. A senior political figure threatening law enforcement officials. Destruction of evidence. Collusion with foreign powers. Financial corruption. Incompetence. Maladministration. Hot stuff.
Russia? Trump, Sr., Jr., or both? Nope.
It’s U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), former head of the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton groupie, and, right now, the Barbie Doll in the center of (at last!) a real scandal involving a Pakistani computer guru called Imran Awan, his wife Hina Alvi, various other family members, and the computer servers of various Democratic congressmen, including Schultz.
Last week, Awan was nabbed by the FBI at Dulles Airport trying to flee to Pakistan. His wife had already flown the coop for Lahore in March, taking $12,400 with her. (The poor thing forgot the read the fine print you see in all those travel advisories that it is a felony to transport more than $10,000 in currency without reporting it.)
Sunday is a big day of the week for The New York Times. Were you or (per impossible) I the editor of the Gray Lady, this story would have occupied a prominent place on the front page of Sunday’s edition. And sure enough, there it was, above the fold . . . Oh, wait, I was mistaken. It was not DWS after all. Silly mistake. It was actually an African herder surrounded by a bunch of goats. Also above the fold was a rare Times story lambasting Donald Trump. About Wasserman Schultz and the Iwan scandal there was precisely . . . nothing.
Not that the Times has totally ignored the story. On Thursday, the paper ran a deflationary column under the headline, “Trump Fuels Intrigue Surrounding a Former I.T. Worker’s Arrest.” (read the rest here)
More from National Review:
As you let all that sink in, consider this: Awan and his family cabal of fraudsters had access for years to the e-mails and other electronic files of members of the House’s Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees. It turns out they were accessing members’ computers without their knowledge, transferring files to remote servers, and stealing computer equipment — including hard drives that Awan & Co. smashed to bits of bytes before making tracks.
They were fired in February. All except Awan, that is. He continued in the employ of Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat, former DNC chairwoman, and Clinton crony. She kept him in place at the United States Congress right up until he was nabbed at the airport on Monday.
This is not about bank fraud. The Awan family swindles are plentiful, but they are just window-dressing. This appears to be a real conspiracy, aimed at undermining American national security.
LEFTY RAT CAUGHT TRYING TO FLEE THE SHIP ... THIS IS THE WATERGATE STORY THE LIBERAL MSM REFUSES TO COVER!!!
Imran Awan, a Wasserman Schultz aide arrested at Dulles International Airport trying to leave the country. Awan is at the center of a criminal investigation potentially impacting dozens of Democratic lawmakers, has been arrested on bank fraud and is prevented from leaving the country while the charges are pending. But that did not stop him from trying. Awan pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. As reported at Legal Insurrection, Imran Awan also under investigation for breaching House IT systems and stealing equipment.
Much more at The Daily Caller.
Imran Awan, a House staffer at the center of a criminal investigation potentially impacting dozens of Democratic lawmakers, has been arrested on bank fraud and is prevented from leaving the country while the charges are pending.
A senior House Democratic aide confirmed Awan was still employed by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as of Tuesday morning. But David Damron, a spokesman for Wasserman Schultz, later said that Awan was fired on Tuesday.
Awan pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
Awan is accused of attempting to defraud the Congressional Federal Credit Union by obtaining a $165,000 home equity loan for a rental property, which is against the credit union’s policies since it is not the owner’s primary residence. Those funds were then included as part of a wire transfer to two individuals in Faisalabad, Pakistan.
Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport on Monday evening before boarding a flight to Lahore, Pakistan. His wife, Hina Alvi, has already left the country for Pakistan along with their children. Federal agents do not believe Alvi has any intention of returning to the U.S., according to a court document.
This is a huge story that the MSM should be covering, but of course it would be damning to the Russian BS they are spewing.
Awan, a longtime IT staffer who worked for more than two dozen House Democrats, has been at the center of a criminal investigation on Capitol Hill for months related to procurement theft. Several of his family members, also IT staffers at the time, were implicated in the ongoing investigation.
Most Democratic lawmakers cut ties with Awan and his family after the criminal investigation came to light in early February. But Awan has continued to be employed by Wasserman Schultz, although it’s unclear what his job duties are given he has been barred from accessing the House IT system for months.
Alvi, another House staff member involved in the Capitol Hill investigation, left the country with their three daughters, headed for Pakistan in March, according to an affidavit filed in the Awan case. Alvi had “numerous pieces of luggage” and more than $12,000 in cash, FBI agent Brandon Merriman wrote in the affidavit.
In March, a group of House Democrats fired Awan and one other staffer over their alleged involvement in the scheme and the looming criminal investigation. However, Fox News reported Tuesday that Wasserman Schultz still has Awan on her staff’s payroll despite him being barred from accessing the House’s computer system since February.
At the time, Reps. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) and Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) both defended Awan.
“As of right now, I don’t see a smoking gun,” Meeks told Politico in March. “I have seen no evidence that they were doing anything that was nefarious.”
“He needs to have a hearing. Due process is very simple. You don’t fire someone until you talk to them,” Fudge added
DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ Says South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley Choice as GOP Response to President Obama’s SOTU Address Demonstrated the Party’s Lack of Diversity
WHEN IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY GOING TO WISE UP AND GET RID OF DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ?
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver the GOP response to Barack Obama’s final State of the Union speech. That was not lost on Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and neither was once again put her foot in her mouth again and making an ass out of herself. Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed the Republican Party’s choice of Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address demonstrated the party’s lack of diversity. HUH? What a hateful, vile individual. It would seem that lost on the DNC chair is the fact that the Democrats are running nothing bust pasty white candidates. Diversity? Meanwhile the GOP has both men and women seeking a presidential nomination, two Latinos, one black and a dude born in Canada. Oh that’s right, the Democrats have Hillary Clinton as their standard barer for woman and diversity, the same woman who stood behind, protected and enabled her husband Bill Clinton to sexually harass woman and worse.
It would appear that not only does Debbie downer not know the difference between the Democrat party and Socialism, she also is definition challenged when it comes to the word diversity. Actually Debbie, you know what demostares a lack of diversity, running a bunch of lily white liberals!
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed the Republican Party’s choice of South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to deliver the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union address demonstrated the party’s lack of diversity.
Oops! Has she looked at the Democratic lineup of presidential candidates lately?
“It’s pretty clear that Nikki Haley is being chosen because the Republican Party has a diversity problem,” Wasserman Schultz, who’s also a Florida congresswoman said in a conference call, according to The Hill, which reported:
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Says GOP Using Benghazi to ‘Gin Up Their Base’ Ahead of 2014 Midterm Elections
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) squared off against one another over politicizing the Benghazi investigation this morning on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’. Debbie Wasserman Schultz accused the GOP of using the Benghazi investigation to drive their base for voter turnout, since they lost on Obamacare. Hmm, lost on Obamacare? Americans are the ones who lost on Obamacare. Bachmann stated that the Democrats have tried to sabotage the investigation process from the beginning. A fact that is most plainly see by the recent revealed Ben Rhodes email that was purposely kept from the committees investigating Benghazi.
“I think it’s important that this is a dialogue and not a monologue, ” Minnesota congresswoman said, adding later, “It’s really clear that the Democrats have tried to sabotage this process from the very beginning,”
Laughing, Wasserman Schultz said, “We don’t have the ability to sabotage.”
One would think that any politician would want to get to the truth of Benghazi and why the American people were mislead by a presidential administration, no matter what the party affiliation. Not Democrats.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Republicans are digging up the issue of the 2012 attack in Benghazi to drive turnout this election year.
Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, told CNN’s Candy Crowley on Sunday that as the issue of health care fails rile up their base, House Republicans are refocusing their attention on the assault that left four Americans dead, including the ambassador to Libya.
Schultz appeared Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Rep. Michele Bachmann, a conservative from Minnesota who ran for president in 2012.
“The big question on many people’s minds is, where did this false narrative come from, to blame a video rather than the terrorist actions of Ansar al-Sharia, which were evident on the ground,” Bachmann said. “So I think that what this committee is doing is taking a very careful look at a very deliberate pace to go through depositions and people on the ground to find out the truth of what happened. That’s all people want is the truth.”
The Obama administration first linked the attack to protests sparked by an anti-Muslim film produced in the United States, which had incited violence in other regions at the time. However, it was later revealed to be a coordinated terrorist attack.
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Says Politics Had Nothing to do With Obama’s Delay of Keystone XL Pipeline Until After 2014 Midterm Elections
LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE …
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) was on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday spinning like a top. DWS told David Gregory that she does not believe that Barack Obama’s decision to delay the XL Keystone pipeline had nothing to do with politics. HAH! Seriously Debbie, the fact that it is referenced that a decision will be made at the earliest after the 2014 has nothing to do with politics? Sorry, but much like everything with Obama, it has everything to do with politics. This is just another example of Barack Obama kicking the political can of issues down the road and playing partisan politics and putting Democrats ahead of Americans. We know that the Keystone XL pipline construction will create primary jobs and secondary one’s from that. But that does not matter to the Food Stamp president.
DWS discusses Keystone XL Pipeline around the 4:00 mark
DWS went on to say, “It [Keyston XL pipeline] affects multiple states. What’s also true is that incumbent senators like [Louisiana Democrat] Mary Landrieu understand the issues that are important on the ground in their states to their constituents.” Yes, they do and they do not appear to be happy.
This woman has the nerve to talk about Tea party extremists when Democrats and Barack Obama are pandering to the far-left wing environmental wackos in delaying the XL Keystone as even Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) stated, “Today’s decision by the administration amounts to nothing short of an indefinite delay of the Keystone pipeline. The decision’s irresponsible, unnecessary, and unacceptable. By making it clear that they will not move the process forward until there’s a resolution in a lawsuit in Nebraska, the administration is sending a signal that the small minority who oppose the pipeline can tie up the process in court forever.”
DAVID GREGORY: Are you worried, as the party chair, that this shouldn’t be resolved before the election because of the potential impact it could have on vulnerable Democrats?
REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure that the right decision is arrived at. And that the president makes that decision carefully and he doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is.
DAVID GREGORY: Is the issue in the fall a referendum on President Obama?
REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: No, absolutely not. The–
DAVID GREGORY: It’s not?
I suppose the IRS targeting the Tea Party, blaming Benghazi on a video tape and delaying employee mandates for Obamacare were not political either.
