Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz slammed President Trump’s possible use of the military to construct his long-promised border wall Monday; directly comparing the Commander-in-Chief with Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro.
“I can tell you that as the chair of the subcommittee that appropriates funds for our military, I would absolutely, along with my colleagues, challenge the president’s ability to make such a declaration,” she said. “It is not legal, not in compliance with the National Emergency Act that he would be attempting to utilize, and there is certainly not a national emergency.”
“This is more the actions of a dictator. The president on the one hand has been declaring his opposition to the actions of a dictator in Venezuela at the same time that he is suggesting he would act like one here in the United States,” she added.
DEBBIE DOWNER: Schultz Says $1000 BONUSES ‘Don’t Go Very Far’
Former DNC chairwoman and Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz continued the Democrat denial of the GOP tax cut success story this week; dismissing higher earnings and big bonuses while claiming that $1,000 doesn’t “go very far” for hard-working American families.
The embattled Representative was speaking at a “Trump Tax Town Hall” event when she made her totally out-of-touch comments, suggesting that the bonuses won’t do much for average Americans.
“Frankly, if you look at the bonuses -and I haven’t heard of a corporate bonus of more than $1,000 so far- which by the way isn’t taxed, so it’s not $1,000,” said Schultz. “And then you spread $1,000 over the course of a year… So figure out how much that is, of course they get it all at once.”
“I’m not sure that $1,000 which is taxed goes very far for almost anyone,” she added.
Debbie’s off-the-wall comments completely ignore the economic boost that $1,000 can deliver for hard-working men and women across the country; allowing them to invest in home improvements, car maintenance, buy stocks, and take their families on vacations.

DEBBIE'S DISASTER: Schultz' Shady IT Staffer to Make a PLEA DEAL with DOJ
Debbie Wasserman Schultz found herself in the hot seat Wednesday after her shady IT staffer who attempted to flee to Pakistan announced his plans to reach a plea deal with American prosecutors, reports Fox News.
Schultz’ IT aide, Imran Awan, rose to national headlines last year after he was arrested at a DC area airport while attempting to flee to Pakistan; raising serious questions over his access to top secret DNC emails and documents surrounding the Florida congresswoman.
“Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged last summer with bank fraud. They now appear poised to strike a plea deal with the Department of Justice. A plea agreement hearing is set for July 3 before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington,” Fox News reported Wednesday.
“The House Office of Inspector General tracked the Awans network usage and found that a massive amount of data was flowing from the (congressional) networks,” said Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa. “Over 5,700 logins by the five Awan associates were discovered on a single server within the House.”
Debbie Wasserman Schultz has largely remained silent on the issue, telling a Florida newspaper that she stood by her decision to retain Awan on her payroll for months despite him being barred from access to the US Capitol.
