Wasserman Schultz's Former IT Aide Indicted

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz talks to an aide.

Wasserman Schultz told the Sun Sentinel earlier this month that she believed news reports about Awan, especially those emanating from right-leaning news outlets, were "completely untrue". Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) has been indicted on four counts including conspiracy and making false statements. Awan's recent indictment reignites the ongoing controversy.

Mr. Awan and other IT aides have been under suspicion by investigators for months after being accused of stealing equipment and sensitive information from House members' computers. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July.

None of the aforementioned networks dedicated any time to informing viewers that Awan had been indicted, despite the fact that he was under federal investigation for cybersecurity violations and was being paid by Wassermann Schultz until the day after his arrest. She threatened "consequences" if the U.S. Capitol police chief would not concede to her demands and return the laptop. He and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged with "conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on a loan or credit application, and engaging in unlawful monetary transactions".

The former head of the Democratic National Committee suggested it's all part of an effort to distract from the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and possible ties to President Trump's team. The money from that loan was wired to Pakistan rather than used toward a mortgage.

The arrest came after the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized a large number of "smashed hard drives" from Awan's house.

"It also raises questions as to what Wasserman Schultz' role has been, in terms of why she ended up keeping him on the payroll", Schlapp said.
