For John, BLUF: The Democrats should have left the Russia thing alone, when they had the chance This could slip out of control Their only hope is the Mainstream Media. Nothing to see here; just move along.

No, this isn't about the extended Trump Family and campaign staff and Russia.
No, this is about Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, at one time the head of the Democratic National Committee, right up until the 2016 Convention. And it is about a group of Pakistani IT experts who were running the computer systems for Ms Schultz and other Democrats in Congress.
And, about how DWS has given possible foreign agents access to information that they could then use to blackmail Members of Congress and others. In the article these is a strong running from Mr Awan to Hezbollah. That doesn't sound good.
Maybe we should appoint a special prosecutor? Not likely, though, given that Mr Awan was arrested for fraud unrelated to what was going on on Capitol Hill. Why was that? Is the Deep Government covering up this obvious penetration of our Government by a foreign government or non-governmental actor?
Here is how the Powerline Post ends:
Clearly, I’ve entered the realm of speculation. But if the mainstream media is going to speculate endlessly about President Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia, shouldn’t it also be speculating about the Awan connection? And if Trump is to be investigated endlessly by the government, shouldn’t the Awan connection be investigated, as well?Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
