Has anyone noticed that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has been uncharacteristically quiet once the news of her foreign IT “help” became public?

I have to wonder, did she knowingly hire spies as IT help?

I have said from day one, if the truth comes out on this, it will be the biggest spy story since the Philby spy ring.

“The Democrat Party has sold out the United States.”

At least since Billy Clinton sold our sub secrets to the Chinese when he was running for his second term.

“may have compromised”?

New York Post/MSMese for “we finally pulled you heads out of our wherever and can’t deny what George Webb has been reporting for months”.

“Wasserman-Schultz’s brother, who is overseeing the FBI investigation” [on the Awan brothers.]

“Steven Wasserman, Assistant Attorney for the District of Columbia who is the brother of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has been tasked with overseeing the investigation of DNC IT employee Imran Awan.”

People in the biz will tell you that counterintelligence investigations are tough and frequently dont lead to prosecutions for obvious reasons

Dont know what will happen here but a very bizarre case

So bizarre i keep wondering if someone in this is an asset

Or it could be an asset that was allowed to do things that you would go to jail for.

They often operate with what seems like impunity. Felix sater is a good example
