Another day, another scandal for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the disgraced congresswomen from Hollywood, Florida. After being forced to resign from her position as DNC chair following revelations she was actively cheating Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary, you’d think she learn to just be quiet. Not so fast friends, she has now threatened Capitol Police with “consequences” if they do not return IT equipment used by one of her staffers that is currently being probed by multiple agencies.
The Daily Caller reported:
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.
Looks like old habits die hard for one of the most corrupt politicians in the swamp.
