House Democrats have consistently professed moral outrage over the hacking of the Democratic National Committee. Yet as evidence of a serious breach of congressional computer systems has come to light, they appear unconcerned.
Last February, three brothers working as House server administrators were banned from the congressional information technology network as part of an ongoing criminal investigation. According to Politico, the former House staffers are “accused of stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network….”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi brushed off questions claiming she wasn’t familiar with the issue.
The brothers, hired to do IT work for Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, have been accused of stealing sensitive information and hardware that belongs to the U. S. government. For months, Wasserman Schultz has been stonewalling investigations, invoking the Speech and Debate Clause to stop police from scanning a laptop that is linked with the possible hacking. U.S. Capitol Police have had the laptop for months and until now had been unable to get access. Now the ousted Democratic National Committee chairwoman plans to allow federal investigators to scan a laptop.
“The DNC doesn’t seem to be interested in this at all. They’ve been kind of brushing this all aside,”said Dana Loesch on today’s “Dana.” “It’s really troubling that they don’t seem to care, but yet they’re still very worried about Russian hacking.”
