Leave it to one of the biggest sources of fake news, the Associated Press, to make Debbie Wasserman Schultz look like the victim in corruption case of the Awan brothers that could literally bring down the DNC.
News Busters reported:
The report spun the news in the most favorable way it could for beleaguered Democrats, making Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz look like the victim as it headlined her spokesman’s claim that she fired Awan Tuesday after learning of his arrest.
The fact is that Schultz has been involved in obstructing investigations into Awan’s activities for months.
Awan, 37, “was arraigned Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on one count of bank fraud” and released with an accompanying “high-intensity supervision program.”
The arrest was reportedly made because there is evidence “that Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, engaged in a scheme to defraud Congressional Federal Credit Union based on misrepresentations made to obtain a loan” having to do with “written assurances that the home serving as collateral for the loan was a ‘principal residence.'” Awan’s lawyer is blaming his arrest was “motivated by anti-Muslim bigotry.”
While the AP’s story appears to be accurate as far as what it tells readers, the cause of Awan’s arrest appears to have given the wire service a convenient excuse to ignore a huge volume of evidence about Awan’s prior activities while working for Schultz which readers deserve to know — and which the establishment press has quite deliberately kept out of its reporting for several months.

Totally disgusting, the media has a clear agenda and it’s to help the Democratic Party.
