Looks like Debbie has some ‘splaining to do.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel went for the jugular during a Fox Business Network interview.
She urged Americans it would be important to pay attention to the scandal involving Rep. Wasserman Schultz’s IT staffer Imran Awan smashing hard drives, to later getting arrested while trying to flee the country.
As we reported just yesterday, the FBI seized smashed hard drives from the resident of Awan and on Monday night he tried to flee the country to Pakistan, but was arrested by authorities at Dulles Airport for bank fraud.
McDaniel decried the fact that the story has been largely ignored by the media and the Democrats, reports the Daily Caller.
“[Wasserman Schultz] kept him on her staff. He was a taxpayer-funded government employee until yesterday when she finally fired him,” McDaniel said. “We need to figure out why he’s under criminal investigation and we’re not hearing that across the country right now.”
“We have to get to the bottom of this, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz has obstructed at every level on something that affects potentially our national security,” she continued. “We are not hearing the Democrats talk about it at all. Where’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz?”
Wassermann Schultz refused to fire Imran until Tuesday despite him being a criminal suspect in a cybersecurity probe that alleges he accessed congressional computers without permission. The Florida congresswoman also threatened a police chief with “consequences” if he continued to investigate a laptop that was used by Imran.
