While everyone else in the mainstream news media is ignoring the Awan scandal, Full Measure isn’t.
This morning, Attkisson’s Full Measure covered the Awan scandal.
Give it a watch.
Rep. Ron DeSantis: You have these Pakistanis doing this IT work. They were taking a lot of data off the network that was not authorized. They’re making trips back and forth to Pakistan. So, this whole thing from top to bottom just absolutely stinks and it seems like, from the leadership perspective, there has not been a lot of zealousness to really put all this information out there and hold anyone accountable.
Despite the concerns, according to multiple sources and investigative notes, the Inspector General claimed Democrat and Republican staffers slow walked the investigation, wouldn’t let her team question the IT workers or access their emails, and pulled her off as the lead on the case less than two weeks before the presidential election. The case was handed over to the Capitol Police and, eventually, the FBI.
Rep. Louie Gohmert: So it almost looked like they took it away from her because of course the Democrats didn’t want how bad this problem was coming to light and apparently Republican leaders didn’t want this coming out because if there’s a really big scandal on your watch; This I what I think, Big scandal on your watch doesn’t matter what party you’re a part of. It looks bad so let’s just tamp this all down.
Those are the money quotes if you ask me.
Why the hell would the Republican leadership slow-walk this investigation?
And why the hell was the investigation taken away from the Inspector General and given to the FBI?
Now, to be fair, most of you know the background covered in this report.
But the fact that a Sunday morning news program is willing to cover this is huge.
So thanks once again Sharyl Attkisson and Full Measure for going where the rest of the news media refuses to go.
