Debbie Wasserman Schultz calls for investigation into Trump — it immediately blows up in her face

Congresswoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, was sternly rebuked on Twitter Saturday after she called for an investigation into Russia's "influence" on American democracy.

"We need an open, bipartisan investigation of Russian influence on our democracy and the White House," Wasserman Schultz tweeted, linking to a story from ProPublica about Trump's tax returns.

Many found Wasserman Schultz's call for an investigation into Trump's administration sort of ironic. After all, Wasserman Schultz herself was found to be behind an alleged conspiracy that rigged last year's Democratic presidential primary to ensure that Hillary Clinton became the DNC's nominee.

The conspiracy was revealed in a series of email leaks by WikiLeaks. Many, especially Democrats, also believe Wasserman Schultz is the reason Donald Trump is president and Clinton is not.

So naturally, Twitter found that Wasserman Schultz's call for an investigation lacked self-awareness:

After the emails were revealed last summer showing the DNC rigged their primary, Wasserman Schultz resigned. Former labor secretary Tom Perez was elected DNC chairman last month.
