Former Democrat Party Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has given up and given in.
After months of stonewalling federal investigators who have been looking into a massive cybersecurity case — which could very well put her and former DNC co-workers behind bars — she has officially stepped back, allowing the FBI to scan her personal laptop for info into many suspicions of corruption and hacking.
Fox News reports:
U.S. Capitol Police have had Wasserman-Schultz’s laptop for months and until now had been unable to get access. It’s unclear why the Florida lawmaker and ousted Democratic National Committee chairwoman had been battling law enforcement over the computer; however, her counsel began negotiating this week with Capitol Police in connection with the probe.
At least five IT contractors who worked for dozens of House Democrats including Wasserman Schultz purportedly took hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of computer equipment and potentially hacked into the lawmakers’ email accounts.
The contractors, all members of a Pakistani-Muslim family, also are being investigated for a possible procurement scam in which they allegedly bought computer equipment, then overcharged the House administrative office.
In addition, sources say the contractors had “unauthorized access” to the House computer system.
House Democrats have stood by the contractors, privately and publicly suggesting their heritage prompted the probe and is contributing to fear-mongering.
