The investigation of the IT aide for Debbie Wasserman Schultz just got even stranger. There is now speculation that her aide left a laptop computer in a place where he knew it would be found. Schultz even had a weird run-in with Capitol Police about keeping this computer.
The Daily Caller reported:
Exclusive: Police Report Indicates Wasserman Schultz IT Aide Planted Computer For Investigators To Find
A laptop that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has frantically fought to keep prosecutors from examining may have been planted for police to find by her since-indicted staffer, Imran Awan, along with a letter to the U.S. Attorney.
U.S. Capitol Police found the laptop after midnight April 6, 2017, in a tiny room that formerly served as a phone booth in the Rayburn House Office Building, according to a Capitol Police report reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Alongside the laptop were a Pakistani ID card, copies of Awan’s driver’s license and congressional ID badge, and letters to the U.S. attorney. Police also found notes in a composition notebook marked “attorney-client privilege.”
The laptop had the username “RepDWS,” even though the Florida Democrat and former Democratic National Committee chairman previously said it was Awan’s computer and that she had never even seen it…
The laptop was found on the second floor of the Rayburn building — a place Awan would have had no reason to go because Wasserman Schultz’s office is in the Longworth building and the other members who employed him had fired him.
It’s starting to look like there’s much more to this story than anyone knows. Why would the aide leave the computer in a public place and what is Wasserman Schultz trying to hide?
