Tuesday's HOT MIC
The latest on the ever blossoming Dem IT scandal:
The family of Imran Awan, the now-indicted former IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and other Democrats, was previously accused of fraud in Pakistan involving “huge chunks” of land, but the charges were dropped because “Awan’s son had easy access to the corridors of power,” according to a detailed article in a Pakistani newspaper.
Elderly farmers said Imran’s father ripped them off, but local police dropped charges against Imran’s father and targeted his accusers after alleged pressure from Pakistani national-level politicians, the Sept. 3, 2009, article in Dawn reported. The story was headlined, “Influential expat shields father from long arm of law.”
The Caller reports that the help came from Rahm Emanuel, who employed the Awan family during his days as a congressman.
What is it with this guy and the Democrats?
Oh, well -- nothing to see here, I'm sure. But Don Jr. totally "colluded with the Russians" when he politely responded to a few Wikileaks DMs.
