    It's a start, but only a start. Eight years of Obama has thoroughly politicized the DOJ, IRS, State, intel and who knows what else.

    That along with the usual political favor hiring of someone's nephew or neighbors. Usually one needs a political/politician's reference to get hired for a government job period. One only knows where the daisy chain of requests & favors started with these hires.

    Seems a really weird arrangement to begin with.

    Fired IT workers found to have been taking money from an Iraqi politician while they were working for Wasserman Schultz. And congressional information was being copied to an offsite server. One of the suspects was able to contribute $250,000 to a family car dealership in Virginia.

    Capitol Police still conducting an investigation. As they say 'follow the money' and see where it ends.

    Access To All DNC emails

    This family/IT workers had access to the entire DNC database of emails.

    A question to be asked is did they have any contact with the hacker called Guccifer. And what business dealings did they have with DNC staffer Seth Rich.

    Doesn't anybody bother to check people out before giving them access to sensitive information? Doesn't anybody monitor where sensitive information is going? Or doesn't anybody in those circles have any sense at all?

    A good question, but they all are government workers. So what more can we expect?

    I am quite frankly appalled that there is no better security for congressional computers!
