Pelosi Dodges On Dem IT Staffers Under Investigation Keeping Their Jobs

By NTK Staff | 05.25.2017 @12:00pm

"There are plenty of people who are under investigation who still have their jobs," Pelosi told reporters regarding the situation.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wouldn’t comment on whether Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (D-FL) IT staffer, who is under investigation by the Capitol Hill Police, should still be an adviser to the Florida congresswoman during her weekly press conference on Thursday.

A reporter asked Pelosi whether Imran Awan, who is under investigation for “massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite,” should still be an adviser to Wasserman Schultz.

Wasserman Schultz earlier in the week threatened the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she claimed belonged to her. The police believe the equipment is pertinent to their investigation of Awan.

“Well, the people who are under investigation are the Attorney General of the United States,” Pelosi told the reporter.

Pelosi then dodged the question, telling the reporter that she was not familiar with the situation.

“There are plenty of people who are under investigation who still have their jobs,” Pelosi concluded.
