The former head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is going to unusual lengths to protect a former Pakistani DNC staffer.
The staffer is considered a key person of interest in a massive cybersecurity breach of sensitive congressional data.
Wasserman is using her position on the committee that sets the budget for the capital police in an attempt to force the department to relinquish a key piece of evidence.
The Capitol Police and other agencies want to talk to Imran Awan who used to work for Rep. Wasserman on suspicion that he stole data from Congress.
According to The Daily Mail, Wasserman is doing her best to keep the material out of the hands of the police.
My understanding is the Capitol Police is not able to confiscate Members’ equipment when the Member is not under investigation.

Wasserman was forced out as head of the DNC after WikiLeaks published emails showing her favoring Hillary Clinton. Now, many are wondering what other secrets she’s trying to hide.
