RNC Chair: Wasserman Schultz has Obstructed an Investigation into Potential Threat to our National Security

Ronna Romney McDaniel wants the American people to pay attention to the investigation involving Wasserman Schultz’s IT staffer.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel accused disgraced former DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) of obstructing an investigation that potentially affects America’s national security during an interview on Wednesday.

McDaniel was calling on the American people to pay attention to the ongoing situation involving Wasserman Schultz’s IT staffer, Imran Awan, who was arrested on bank fraud charges on Tuesday at Dulles airport while attempting to flee the country.

According to Politico:

“Awan is accused of attempting to defraud the Congressional Federal Credit Union by obtaining a $165,000 home equity loan for a rental property, which is against the credit union’s policies since it is not the owner’s primary residence. Those funds were then included as part of a wire transfer to two individuals in Faisalabad, Pakistan.”

“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,” McDaniel told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo.

Awan is “at the center of a criminal investigation potentially impacting dozens of lawmakers.” The investigation accuses Awan of “stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network.”

Despite these accusations against Awan, Wasserman Schultz still employed Awan at the time he was arrested and in May Wasserman Schultz threatened consequences against the U.S. Capitol Police who are conducting the investigation into Awan for confiscating computer equipment as part of their investigation.

“We are not hearing the Democrats talk about it at all,” McDaniel concluded. “We also need to know why the DNC never turned over their hard drive to the FBI to review it as to their hacking situation. So the Democrats are on TV and they’re grandstanding every chance they get, but they’re not complying, and they’re not being forthright with their role.”
