Roger Kimball, penned a bit of tongue-in-cheek advice for the New York Times, while laying out more details about the Awan clan and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in his piece:
The Pakistani Hackers Working for the DNC
Kimball includes a bit of information about the Awan scandal that I had not read elsewhere:
“What took her so long? Well might you ask. McCarthy cuts to the chase: “This is not about bank fraud. The Awan family swindles are plentiful, but they are just window-dressing. This appears to be a real conspiracy, aimed at undermining American national security.”
Wait a minute while I get my plot thickener. In 2016, Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee wrote to the House appropriations subcommittee asking that their staffers obtain “Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information” clearances, spook-speak for the whole shebang. Guess who was working for many of the letter writers? Yep, Awan and his crew. Guess who the ranking member of the appropriations subcommittee was? Donald Duck? Close. Actually, it was Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Coincidence or “political high jinks”? Take your time.”
The hyperlinked bit, “wrote to the House appropriations subcommittee”, about the Dems on the House Intel Committee, shows the actual letter they wrote. Note that Congressman Eric Swalwell, who is an almost more annoying TV gadfly than Adam Schiff, droning on about “Trump/Russia collusion”, signed this letter.
So, if this is true, did Imran Awan have SCI clearance??? Perhaps, the mainstream media could pause for a moment ranting about “Trump/Russian collusion” and investigate this story.
Yeah, yeah, I know, when pigs fly

Well. Here we go.
(Mueller’s Grand Jury – interesting times I reckon LB.)
Guess this will be the info war Death Match edition.
If Mueller has solid evidence, I don’t think Trump can save his presidency with these big rallies, Drudge, Fox News & Twitter though. I wonder who organizes and foots the bill for all these rallies?
Probably not Debbie Wasserman-Shultz I’d say:
By the way LB, you heard a peep about this?
I saw all the Judicial Watch stuff in conservative media, but the mainstream (liberal) media has pretty much ignored the Awan story and with anything about Abedin, they do the Clinton talking points – “right-wing witch hunt” or launch into the poor little Huma routine and it’s just “Islamophobia”.
Made me chuckle there LB “Islamophobia” – sounds plumb lawyerly.
Well, I think there are several tracks to this mess, with Trump/Russia being just one. Quite a lot of people, supporting both Trump and Hillary, here and abroad went all out to “influence” the 2016 election.
I also think the “generals” are there to keep stability amidst the Trump & Co, chaos. Never thought America would be like some tin pot dictatorship, where the generals provide an aura of stability, but these are some strange times. I hope the generals stay. There’s a big push amongst the Trump loyalists to oust McMaster. McMaster has the hardest time hiding his disdain for the Trump crowd.
