WHY’S HE RUNNING? Top IT Staffer for Wasserman Schultz Caught Trying to FLEE U.S.

The top IT staffer for Debbie Wasserman Schultz tried to flee the U.S. as he and his three brothers are under criminal investigation for hacking the DNC.

The Observer reported:

The Daily Caller reported on July 23 that the FBI recently seized smashed hard drives from the home of Congressional IT staffer Imran Awan, a former employee of Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz who maintains a personal and working relationship her. One year after emails leaked by WikiLeaks lead Wasserman Schultz to resign from her post as DNC chair, her ties to Awan have incorporated her in yet another political scandal.

Awan and four other former congressional IT staffers are being investigated by U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI for “wide-ranging equipment and data theft.” Few details have been released since the investigation was first reported in February 2017, but many have speculated that Wasserman Schultz is involved due to a tense exchange between her and the U.S. Capitol police chief over a laptop from her office being held as evidence. Last week, Wasserman Schultz finally cooperated with authorities to grant them access to a laptop, though it’s uncertain if the laptop in question is the same laptop Wasserman Schultz argued with the U.S. Capitol police chief over. Awan clearly went to great lengths to cover his tracks, but it’s unclear what his motives were.

Geez, why is this guy running? Maybe it has something to do with President Trump’s tweets about how the investigation into Hillary Clinton needs to be reopened.
