If you want to know why President Trump is frustrated with Attorney General Jeff Sessions just look at his handling of the indictment of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT staffer. Awan’s arrest could’ve been the key to unlocking a slew of criminal activity including extortion, blackmail, violation of the Espionage Act, and even the murder of Seth Rich, at the very highest levels of our government.
On July 25th, immediately after Imran Awan was arrested trying to flee the country we had posited that this signaled the Justice Department’s first step in draining the swamp. Predictably the MSM ignored the story and instead focused America’s attention on disparaging President Trump.
We never thought Sessions would turn his back on this potentially explosive break in draining the highest levels of the swamp.
When Robert Mueller was appointed Special Counsel and he began assembling his team, it began taking on the look of a Clinton legal defense team. This came as no surprise since Mueller had been the F.B.I. director the entire time she served as Secretary of State.
During that time Mueller saw no reason to investigate an NBC report that she was protecting a pedophile ring inside the department that she was running. The NBC report virtually alleged that she was responsible for quashing the internal investigation into it.
Of course, it was also during that time that Mueller found nothing suspicious about the incredible growth of the Clinton Foundation all the while Hillary was leveraging her position at Foggy Bottom to enrich her foundation. This included Cash Flowing to the Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal.
Now, the indictment handed down against Imran Awan shows us just what President Trump is up against as he attempts to drain the swamp. The Deep State is still in charge of both the F.B.I. and the DOJ.
According to a former U.S. attorney with knowledge of these kinds of cases the indictment against the Awans has been deliberately narrowly written.
Andrew C. McCarthy has written in National Review:
“To summarize, the indictment is an exercise in omission. No mention of the Awan group’s theft of information from Congress. Not a hint about the astronomical sums the family was paid, much of it for no-show “work.” Not a word about Wasserman Schultz’s keeping Awan on the payroll for six months during which (a) he was known to be under investigation, (b) his wife was known to have fled to Pakistan, and (c) he was not credentialed to do the IT work for which he had been hired. Nothing about Wasserman Schultz’s energetic efforts to prevent investigators from examining Awan’s laptop. A likely currency-transportation offense against Alvi goes uncharged. And, as for the offenses that are charged, prosecutors plead them in a manner that avoids any reference to what should be their best evidence.”
How could a qualified U.S. attorney ignore evidence of suspected blackmail, “given (a) the staggering sums of money paid to the Awans over the years, (b) the sensitive congressional communications to which they had access, (c) the alleged involvement of Imran Awan and one of his brothers in a blackmail-extortion scheme against their stepmother, and (d) Wasserman Schultz’s months of protecting Awan and potentially impeding the investigation.”
You may find it enlightening to learn who is in charge of the U.S. attorney’s office that is handling this case. It’s the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and it is currently under the direction of Channing D. Phillips who is an Obama holdover who was never confirmed.
Making matters even more problematic is that Steven Wasserman, Representative Wasserman Schultz’s brother is an assistant attorney in that office.
Meanwhile, Trump’s nominee, Jessie Liu still awaits Senate confirmation. What more evidence do you need that Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans are part of the problem than their reliance on an Obama operative – who they never confirmed – to save them from being implicated in all of this D.C. corruption?
