There’s no doubt that Debbie Wasserman Schultz has something to hide given the latest uncovering of her IT staff, among other things. Now, it seems, that her main IT staffer, Imran Awan, may be have slipped up and left a laptop “laying around”. A laptop that Wasserman Schultz has threatened people over to ensure she gets back.
As Written By Luke Rosiak for the Daily Caller:
A laptop that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has frantically fought to keep prosecutors from examining and a letter to the U.S. Attorney may have been planted in a House office building for police to find — by her since-indicted staffer, Imran Awan.
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 was a Pakistani ID card, copies of Awan’s drivers 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.
Awan was banned Feb. 2, 2017, from the congressional computer network because he is a suspect in a cybersecurity investigation, but he still had access to House facilities because Wasserman Schultz continued to employ him.
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.
Wasserman Schultz used a televised May 18, 2017 congressional hearing on the Capitol Police budget to threaten “consequences” if Chief Matthew Verderosa did not give her the laptop. “If a member loses equipment,” it should be given back, she said.
Verderosa told her the laptop couldn’t be returned because it was tied to a criminal suspect. Wasserman Schultz reiterated that, while Awan was a suspect, the computer should be returned because it is “a member’s … if the member is not under investigation.”
