Remember Debbie Wasserman Schultz? She is back in the news this week because of a bizarre court filing that makes her ties to Hillary Clinton almost as strange as Anthony Weiner. Her name, along with ex-FBI Director James Comey and former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, will be important to keep up with as the “Russian hacking” narrative continues to unravel.
Many recall her as the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman who was booed off stage during their 2016 Philadelphia convention when she was forced to resign? President Barack Obama had to personally call her to back off and leave the job. WikiLeaks released DNC emails showing their staffers had unethically backed Hillary Clinton in the primary campaigns. She led the charge on criticizing the Bernie Sanders. After her voluntary termination, she became the honorary chairperson of Clinton’s “50 state program.”
In what could be the largest class-action lawsuit in American history, Wasserman Schultz is a defendant against Bernie Sanders supporters who claim fraud. A strange filing last Thursday is now included in the suit alleging the DNC undermined Sanders by colluding with the Clinton camp. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida received the file by the class action suit attorneys indicating they had a weird phone call seeking information about the case that was traced back to Wasserman Schultz’s office.
One of the memos related to the case uncovered by the FBI described a Wasserman Schultz email to an official at the billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundations. The message indicated that Lynch had privately assured a Clinton staffer the Justice Department wouldn’t proceed very far with the investigation. The latest narrative suggests Comey decided to circumvent the Justice Department by holding the press conference revealing Clinton’s “recklessness” with national security related emails and communication.
“the caller was using a voice changer, because the voice sounded robotic and genderless”
“At 4:54 p.m. today [June 1], an individual called our law office from ‘305-936-5724′” attorney Elizabeth Lee Beck stated. That number is the contact phone number for Democratic Wasserman Schultz’s office in Aventura, Florida.
“My secretary stated that it sounded like the caller was using a voice changer, because the voice sounded robotic and genderless — along the lines of the voice changers used when television show interviews are kept anonymous,” Beck said. “The caller concluded with ‘Okey dokey,’ after my secretary gave the caller public information about the case. After the call ended, a simple Google search of the phone number ‘305-936-5724′ shows that it is the phone number for Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ Aventura office … What just occurred is highly irregular and we will be filing the instant e-mail with the court forthwith.”
Beck also released a screen shot of the caller ID information, but lawyers for Wasserman Schultz and the DNC defendants claim she or her staff have no knowledge of the phone call.
In late May, a video was released that showed Wasserman Schultz arguing with U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa. over an investigation into her former Information Technology (IT) staffer, Imran Awan. He and four other congressional IT staffers are currently under criminal investigation for theft of equipment and data. When the investigation first began in February, 26 Democratic lawmakers hurried to terminate the suspects. The only exception was Wasserman Schultz who kept the employees on her office payroll. She changed Awan’s title from aide to “advisor” and kept him around for the longest time period.
“I think you’re violating the rules when you conduct your business that way and you should expect that there will be consequences,” Wasserman Schultz told the chief who is keeping a laptop from her office in evidence.
They were paid over $4 million since 2010.
Before early February, Pakistani aide Imran Awan, his wife Hina, a best friend and his brothers Abid and Jamal were employed as ‘shared employees,’ doing computer tech support and other information technology work for those Congressional offices. They were paid over $4 million since 2010. Not being reported extensively by the mainstream media, the strange death of a federal prosecutor who may have been investigating the status of Awan and his relatives has added fuel to several conspiracy stories circulating on social media.
A crimes unit prosecutor from the U.S. Attorney’s office in Miami, Beranton Whisenant (reported by some as “working on visa and passport fraud cases, according to court documents,”) was found dead on beach in Hollywood, Florida. This is in Wasserman Schultz’s Congressional district.
Wasserman Schultz “uses her position on this subcommittee to threaten the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police,” Tim Canova, an opponent against her in the Democratic primary for the House seat, posted on Facebook. He demanded Wasserman Shultz “recuse herself from the House Committee on Appropriations’ Legislative Branch Subcommittee on any matter dealing with the Capitol Police budget.”
