Remember the explosive scandal from early 2018 involving a former IT aide with ties to terrorists who worked for top House Democrats, including former Democratic National Committee Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz?
Well, that scandal is back in a big way.
The Department of Justice released a statement saying it could not release records on Imran Awan due to “technical difficulties,” but later admitted in court documents that it could not release records on him because there is a secret ongoing case related to the matter, the Daily Wire reports.
“Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit Nov. 7, 2018, for 7,000 pages of Capitol Police records related to the cybersecurity investigation, and Aug. 2, the DOJ agreed to begin producing records by Nov. 5,” Daily Caller investigative reporter Luke Rosiak reported. “That deadline came and went with no records being produced; on a Nov. 13 phone call, the DOJ said ‘technical difficulties’ had resulted in a delay, Judicial Watch stated in a court filing.”
