The Debbie Wasserman Schultz story is a) one of the weirdest things to come down the pike in a while and b) pure awesome.
Last point first, it’s pure awesome because of all the annoying Democrat Party goons, DWS is tops. From that weird tone of her voice to her bitchy delivery, it is fantastic to (hopefully) see DWS stone cold busted.
Weird because, well, the whole thing is weird. And that’s saying something in this day and age. I mean, we live in an age in which I can self-identify as Britney Spears (I’ll spare the world the obligatory crotch pic) and be chastised for racial appropriation for my rendition of “Hit Me Baby One More Time”. I won’t rehash how DWS kept her incompetent IT guy on the payroll after everyone else fired him and how DWS refused to turn over her computer. I won’t even reflect on the smashed hard drives (sound familiar) found in the IT dude’s residence. Or the sensitive information Imran Awan – that’s her IT guy’s name – illegally divulged to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Instead let’s go back.
Back to the first time Hillary Clinton said hackers were trying to steal the election from her. It was during the primaries and Hillary didn’t levy the allegation against the Russians. Nope. The claim was that the Bernie Sanders campaign exploited a vulnerability in the Hillary Clinton campaign’s IT systems. According to Hillary’s campaign, the Sanders campaign acquired proprietary data and could use it to influence the outcome of the primaries.
Let’s pause for a moment. Take out Bernie Sanders and substitute as appropriate Russia or Donald Trump and doesn’t the above paragraph read a lot like a CNN talking point? Just saying.
There is a reason DWS didn’t want law enforcement to touch her computer and there is a reason she kept paying a dude that was such a crappy IT professional a big box electronics retailer told him to kick rocks. I will bet any reader an adult beverage that Debbie’s IT guy was instrumental in hacking Hillary Clinton campaign servers.
Even a crappy IT guy could orchestrate it. And let’s face it, when people like John Podesta use “password” for their password, concocting a scheme to pull some data down from someone else’s server isn’t a big mountain to move. I’d go so far as to suggest whether Imran Awan might have simply asked a Hillary campaign operative for access to the servers and covered his trail in such a way as to make it look like the Bernie campaign extracted the data.
Forget OJ. I want DWS on the stand and can’t wait to hear how she tries to weasel out of this.
