The IT staffer scandal that has engulfed House Democrats including former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz will remain in the news for some months. The matter is just that serious and involves so many people that it will take investigators time to sort through it all and figure out all those against whom indictments will be sought.
Recall that this surrounds a Pakistani named Imran Awan and some family members who were paid handsomely to serve as IT staffers for Wasserman Schultz and a couple of dozen other House Democrats. While they were very well paid, there is some doubt as to how much work they all did. Some may have done nothing to earn their pay. But worse, they could have leaked confidential documents to Muslim terrorist organizations. Again, all of this is currently under investigation.In fact, indictments have already been made and the federal courts are taking testimony. In this regard, Hina Alvi, one of Mr. Awan’s wives has testified that he is guilty of bank fraud and polygamy, and that he had made threats against her person if she shared this information with authorities. Recall that she fled to Pakistan, but later returned to the U.S. It’s amazing what federal authorities can encourage those who are under indictment themselves to share about others.
