Independent government watchdog Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust (FACT) has just named Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz one of Congress’ “most ethically challenged” members because of her role in the House IT scandal, reports The Daily Caller.

Wasserman Schultz was named the second most ethically challenged member, the first being the still unknown members of Congress who are tied up in sexual harassment settlement scandals.

“‘Two of Wasserman Schultz’s former IT aides, Imran Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, have been indicted on charges of conspiracy against the United States. Evidence gathered in a cybersecurity probe in the House of Representatives revealed a litany of violations, although the two aides have not yet been charged in that probe,’ reports the Daily Caller.”

FACT had already filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics in July after Wasserman Schultz continued employing Awan for months after Capitol Police said he was under investigation and even after he was banned from the House network.

Wasserman Schultz also seemingly planned to continue paying Awan even after he moved back to his native country of Pakistan.

The congresswoman also tried to intimidate Capitol Police into handing over a laptop that she indicated belonged to her. She later changed her story and said the laptop belonged to Awan. The laptop’s hard drive has played a central role in the legal case against the former Democratic IT aides.

Republicans Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis said in August that the House IT scandal, which remains ongoing is “one of the all-time congressional scandals in the last 30 years.”

    So tired of reading about use of terms like “most ethically challenged”, “extremely careless” (James Comey’s description about Hillary Clinton), to describe someone’s actions when they broke the law. Where are the indictments?

    • Eagle Nest

      Could this be a problem with Jeff Sessions???

  • Marc E.

    They’re all seemingly trying to buy time until the ’18 midterms, hoping upon hope they can “escape” the consequences of their actions. Kind of a liberal, corrupt congressional “#metoo” movement.

    Throw “mayonnaise hair” in jail. Typical lying, cheating progressive/socialist.

    Schultz is a brazen criminal who believes our judiciary doesn’t have the guts to imprison a sitting U.S. Representative. Hopefully they perp walk her out of the South Chamber when it’s in full session.

    The DoJ and FBI certainly have their plates full. And we conservatives want to dump a whole lot more on them.

    *Investigation and forensic audit of the Clinton Foundation.
    *Investigation of the Obama administration’s misuse and abuse of the nation’s intelligence, national security and law enforcement resources — often with the enthusiastic assistance of so-called “professionals” like Brennan, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Lynch, Yates, Holder, Clapper, Rogers, FISC — for base and blatant partisan political purposes.
    *Investigation of the Mueller farce.
    *Reopening of the Fast & Furious investigation.
    *Investigation of the Obama administration’s deal with Hezbollah scum. Release of withheld documents.
    *The IG reports not just on the Clinton private server/ emails/ devices, but on the Mueller investigation, the misconduct at the FBI, Lynch’s tarmac meeting, Comey’s leaks, Strzok’s, Page’s, McCabe’s, Comey’s, Rosenstein’s and Mueller’s teams’ various conflicts of interest.

    Perhaps Sessions should hire a whole bunch of new lawyers and FBI agents to dilute all the career civil servants hired by Holder based on their political affiliations; clear out all the E-1 holdovers; remove, reassign, retire, replace all Section Chiefs and all Division Directors at least in DC and maybe in the US Attorneys’ and field offices.

    Wasserman-Schultz is a criminal and should be terminated and sent to the boobyhatch farm for the balance of her wicked, evil, lyin’ life.

    Makes one wonder why they have not been charged??
