By now, just about everyone knows the story:
Something nefarious happened with regard to some IT staffers employed by several Democratic members of the House.
These Muslim IT staffers stole quite a bit during their tenure at the White House and since then, one of them was caught trying to flee the country.
At the center of this is former DNC chair and current Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, along with other Democrats of note, and it appears they turned a blind eye to what these thieves were doing.
Now we learn that a staff member for another Democratic congressperson allegedly hid the disappearance of $120,000 worth of missing electronics, a potential theft connected to these IT staffers.
If true, not only do we have a situation in which some of these former IT staffers have been indicted for multiple cases of fraud, but one in which they now stand accused of stealing $120,000 of government property.
On top if it all, we’ve got a Democratic staff member accused of juggling the books to hide the theft.
Via Daily Caller:
“A chief of staff for Democratic Rep. Yvette Clarke quietly agreed in early 2016 to sign away a $120,000 missing electronics problem on behalf of two former IT aides now suspected of stealing equipment from Congress.“
“Clarke’s chief of staff at the time effectively dismissed the loss and prevented it from coming up in future audits by signing a form removing the missing equipment from a House-wide tracking system after one of the Awan brothers alerted the office the equipment was gone.
The Pakistani-born brothers are now at the center of an FBI investigation over their IT work with dozens of Congressional offices.”
The questions the Democrats and their allies in the press don’t want asked are very simple:
How did these IT staffers manage to pull off multiple crimes over a period of years without getting caught? Were there elected officials who were complicit in these crimes, and if so, why?
Did the Pakistani IT staffers gather information from their access to confidential computer files to blackmail any elected officials?
STORY CONTINUES BELOW…
“The missing $120,000 covers only Clarke’s office. Imran and his relatives worked for more than 40 current House members when they were banned from the House network in February, and have together worked for dozens more in past years.
Not all of the offices’ books have been audited for similar patterns.”
Why were these people not turned over to authorities when their alleged thefts were discovered? How deep does this rabbit hole go?
That they purportedly stole computer gear also implies the possibility that what was stored on that gear was of even more value, from a blackmail standpoint, than the equipment itself.
There are quite a number of Democratic congresspersons who should be sweating profusely. And Wasserman Schultz is right at the top of the list.
