The Very Strange Indictment of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT Scammers

The Very Strange Indictment of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT Scammers
The indictment undertakes to describe in detail four counts of bank-fraud conspiracy, false statements on credit applications, and unlawful monetary transactions, yet leaves out the most damning evidence of guilt. 
In fact, the indictment appears to go out of its way not to mention it. 
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. 
There is something very strange going on here.

Also ironic, the article is posted in the National Review as if a blog post when such an outlet has or at least once had the resources and talent for significant and original investigative reporting - none of their report is original content - only a review of previously released details. National Review needs to do more.

National Review was anti-Trump. I am no longer a fan.

I began my subscription to NR in 1980 having been a fan of Firing Line early on. I did not renew my subscription after the firing of John Derbyshire. It was obvious by that time that NR had drifted too far into globalism and was no longer worth the investment. Their Never-Trump hysteria simply reaffirmed my judgment.
