Reports: Arrest of Wasserman Schultz Staffer Reaches Dozens of Democrats

NBC and CBS Miami reported that the probe could impact several Democratic members of Congress.

The arrest of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) staffer Imran Awan could reach “dozens of Democratic lawmakers” according to local reports from NBC and CBS Miami.

NBC Miami reported that Wasserman Schultz continued to employ Awan even after revelations about his conduct came to light, and according to CBS Miami, Awan was attempting to flee to Pakistan when he was arrested.

Awan was charged with bank fraud last week, and Wasserman Schultz received criticism for possibly shielding the staffer from the investigation.
