Under Pressure, Debbie Wasserman Schultz Finally Allows Police To Scan Her Laptop

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chair of the DNC, was accused of using her position to tilt the Democrat primary process for Hillary Clinton. She has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing but has finally turned over her computer for examination.

Wasserman Schultz to allow laptop scan after months of stonewalling in IT probe

The former head of the Democratic Party who lost her post in the fallout from a massive email breach is expected to start cooperating with federal investigators in a separate cybersecurity case, after months of apparent stonewalling.

Fox News has learned that Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz plans to allow federal investigators to scan a laptop belonging to her as part of a complex probe into allegations of computer theft, over-billing and possible email hacking.

U.S. Capitol Police have had the laptop for months and until now had been unable to get access. It’s unclear why the Florida lawmaker and ousted Democratic National Committee chairwoman had been battling law enforcement over the computer; however, her counsel began negotiating this week with Capitol Police in connection with the probe.

At least five IT contractors who worked for dozens of House Democrats including Wasserman Schultz purportedly took hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of computer equipment and potentially hacked into the lawmakers’ email accounts.

Here was her earlier, insulting response to the Capitol Police request to scan her laptop:

The Daily Caller reported previously:

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite.

The Florida lawmaker used her position on the committee that sets the police force’s budget to press its chief to relinquish the piece of evidence Thursday, in what could be considered using her authority to attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation. 

The Capitol Police and outside agencies are pursuing Imran Awan, who has run technology for the Florida lawmaker since 2005 and was from the House network in February on suspicion of data breaches and theft.

What is she hiding?

This is the one story about collusion that Democrats and the media don’t want to talk about!
