    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.
    We must always take sides.

    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!

    Dispute over laptop

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz demands computer back which is part of the investigation. Capital Hill police say no. Heated discussion follows.

    Imran Awan, one of the IT employees was arrested trying to leave country on bank fraud charges. Scammed The Congressional Federal Credit Union.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz needs to take a fall for this.

    "What we've got here, is failure to communicate."

    She probably will take a political fall. She enabled the hiring of corrupt IT from a hostile country and/or foreign workers. So besides any shenanigans with the primary just the fact that DWS and/or DNC hired foreign nationals instead of US citizens & companies to work on federal computers should be enough to merit not getting re-elected.

    This also opens the door and/or raises a question or two about the Russian 'hack' of the DNC in particular. DNC servers were never physically turned over for investigation. Could these corrupt IT workers have accessed the same information?

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
