Does Debbie Wasserman Schultz Keep Dangerous Company?

Debbie Wasserman Schultz must feel pretty safe in her bubble. Because every time you turn around, there she is again, poking the WikiLeaks bear.

It happened again earlier this week.

Wasserman Schultz was photographed at a City of Hollywood meeting with Evan Ross, a Miami Democratic leader and lobbyist, who made international news when he offered to kill WikiLeaks founder Julian Assage and whistleblower Edward Snowden.  The photos from Hollywood raised eyebrows. The two of them, Wasserman Schultz and Ross, with their heads together: "They were obviously consorting, and it made me feel uncomfortable," a citizen attending the meeting told Sunshine State News.

I Beg to Differ

Some of the photos are displayed on this page. And of course, they found their way to Twitter and some conservative DWS-watch blog sites (for instance here and here).

Said the story in Disobedient Media, "That (Wasserman) Schultz would appear personally with Ross, who had openly stated his willingness to kill WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange who has never been charged with a crime, fuels claims by those who view the Democratic Party establishment as hopelessly corrupt ..."

While I admit, this is not the most alarming piece of Debbie Wasserman Schultz news we've ever reported, it does establish a convergent pattern of computer-centric issues in the Democratic congresswoman's life that gets stranger each week.

Which she apparently is happy to parade in public. 

You would think getting caught in her hacked emails showing a preference for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential primary would have been enough to humble the then-chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. Remember, WikiLeaks' Assange was only too happy to release her every word.

Exposing Hillary's heart on her sleeve -- and on the party brass she influenced -- cost Wasserman Schultz the national party chairmanship. The boos at the Democratic National Convention breakfast ... hard to believe they aren't still ringing in her ears.

Nevertheless, her computer-related decisions continued to haunt her. 

The apparently trusting Wasserman Schultz kept IT aide Imran Awan on her congressional staff payroll until the day after Awan was arrested on bank fraud charges virtually at the Dulles Airport gate, trying to return to Pakistan.

The difference between Wasserman Schultz and other House Democrats who employed Awan for his Internet services is ... they fired him in March, just after Capitol Police put him under investigation; she kept him on until Tuesday, July 25, even though Awan had been barred from accessing the House's computer system since February. 

What does an IT guy do in a congresswoman's office full-time for nearly six months when he's not allowed to touch a computer? Wasserman Schultz claims she kept him busy; a lot of people, including some of her colleagues, aren't satisfied by her explanation.

Next up was the mysteriously under-reported class-action lawsuit. Some 150 Democratic donors, many of them Bernie Sanders supporters, sued Wasserman Schultz for fraud, negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty and negligence -- saying in more common English she rigged the primary. It's over now. She escaped. The  case was dismissed two weeks ago. In his ruling, federal Judge William Zloch never said Wasserman Schultz didn't give Clinton an edge, he said plaintiffs failed to show they suffered a "concrete injury particularized to them ... that could be tested in this Court."

And now here we are. Next thing you know Wasserman Schultz turns up at a meeting with Evan Ross. Poison meets poison. 

We already covered Wasserman Schultz, who once had a promising future in the Democratic Party. Let's look for a moment at Ross, a budding young Democrat himself, who served as president of the Miami-Dade Young Democrats and was the Miami Democratic Party’s 2011-2012 district chair.  At one point he was named “Young Democrat of the Year.” But, be honest, you put it all over social media you're ready to kill people, you name names, you confirm you meant what you said ... then issue an apology and expect people to believe it?  All of a sudden that rising star takes a downward plunge. It's bound to happen.

You have to ask yourself why these two, Ross and Wasserman Schultz -- the WikiLeaks Wonders -- are hanging out together.

I can't speak for Ross. But Wasserman Schultz is a congresswoman with a constituency that depends on her judgment and a party leadership in Washington already wary of her behavior. There are a lot of eyes on her. Apparently she doesn't care.

Imran Awan, Evan Ross -- who says they're dangerous company? Either she's bold and admirable or clumsy and politically reckless. Time will tell.

Doesn't seem to matter to her constituents, they keep voting in this political hack to office. She has had her eyes on higher office for a long time but her getting caught cheating in the campaign and her obvious poor choices of employees are going to keep her in South Florida. Too bad! I wish she would emigrate somewhere to California or something.

Assange SHOULD be worried. I've seen the classified photos and viewed the 8mm films. I know the unvarnished truth. Ross was on the grassy knoll in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. Seventeen years later, on November 21, 1980 he shot J.R. Ewing. Two weeks prior, he was one of 921,299 known political subversives to vote for Libertarian Ed Clark in the 1980 presidential election. In 1999, he changed his birth name from Menendez to Ross, after his brothers, Lyle and Erik, were apprehended for the murder of his parents. He had been plotting the Assange tweet since March 2006, but was unable to compact the threat into 140 characters or less until recently.

How about we all stop paying taxes until the proper people are put in prison? Starting with Hillary, and her foundation, Bill, Debbie, Imran, Podesta, Mills, the whole crooked bunch. Don't forget Koskinen and Lerner. I'm all for sending a list to the IRS everytime they ask us to file our returns.

DWS needs to be locked up. She not above reproach by the laws of treason and neither is HRC.

Debbie is quite simply a pure SOCIALIST - she should just continue her role as "friend of James Comey".

Trumped up fake news

The "meetings" are FACTS. No trumping in it. Ross: "Young Democrat Assassin of the Year.”

Typical fake news by Nancy when by far the most dangerous person in the US is Trump by far playing footsie with Putin, Assad, Nazis, KKK, etc openly she ignores. What's up with that?............................ And Nancy still won't name names on those letting big Ag poison her town, waters so bad driving all the tourists away. Why Nancy? Isn't that a far larger danger to you, your community?

So, we're not supposed to chew gum and walk? We're supposed to only address your 'most dangerous person' and not bother with other dangerous people? Until when? Until he/she/they are elected to the presidency?

This comment is ignorant on so many levels...Wow!

Care to say what is not true?

jerry, why not EVER provide actual facts/proof with your completely false comments? I already know the answer, but let's see yours.

That's some transparent attempt at a diversion, Jerry. Admit it, you're a Democrat shill who has spent the last several years trying to trash Nancy's credibility in your comments. Hasn't worked. I have known her and her work for a long time. Nancy just gets better.

Yet she never stated names that were at fault because they were repubs polluting her town with massive algae toxic blooms driving tourist, people away yet someone says something to a dem and they are all kinds of fake news rumors flying.............. Now tell me that isn't true?....................... Only telling a very biased side is what kills Nancy's credibility, nothing more, I just point it out in her role as attack dog............... I'm only a Dem by default as a fiscal conservative which if one truly is, has to be progressive as ignoring facts, the future one can't make good choices, not regressive that repubs have become more so.

Thank you Jerry for admitting you are "ignoring facts", and continuing to post in your blissful way!

You're such an ignorant blogger. Yeah, Trump played "footsie" with Assad using 59 Tomahawks.

That be what it may Trump praised Assad several times. And one has to note no argument he loves Putin, Nazi's and KKK , etc scumbags.

Hey Jerry, why not prove our President Trump's love for Putin, Nazis, and the KKK, and "scumbags"? As usual, all talk, no proof of fact!

Lock her up with Clinton in the same cell just watch their laptops

she is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo BAD!
