Debbie Wasserman Schultz IT staffers may have compromised sensitive data to foreign intelligence

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say.

What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects.

Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.

“This is a massive, massive scandal,” a senior US official familiar with the widening probe told The Post.

    Scandal?
    It’s no scandal at all if it never get reported on.

    The case just screamed Blackmail from the beginning. Also that a Pakistani would leak classified information to America’s enemies.

    • And this is what happens when you hire members of an identity group for the purpose of virtue signalling (e.g. “look at us we’re not Islamophobes”) rather than based on qualifications and proper security vetting. The Obama admin hired tons of un-vetted Muslims, and people warned them.

      I hope Pakistan blackmails the heck out of Members of Congress — they deserve nothing better for their consistently poor judgement. I hope it ruins their careers for good. And maybe the Dems (and RINOs) will finally learn. But I doubt it.

    All 3 were probably members of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency.

      And whatever the ISI knows, Al Qaeda and the Taliban know too.

    It’s not a scandal, it’s treason. BHO is the traitor-in-chief. Many of us suspected it all along.
