President Trump slammed Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her shady IT staffer Thursday, saying the Department of Justice shouldn’t let them “get off the hook” by making plea deals surrounding her missing server.
The President unloaded on Schultz and her former aide Imran Awan on social media, calling the scandal the “key to much of the corruption” we see throughout the federal government on a daily basis.
“Our Justice Department must not let Awan & Debbie Wasserman Schultz off the hook. The Democrat I.T. scandal is a key to much of the corruption we see today. They want to make a ‘plea deal’ to hide what is on their Server. Where is Server? Really bad!” Trump tweeted.

The President’s comments come hours after Fox News reported that Awan was seeking a plea deal with the DOJ; sparking speculation he was prepared to “flip” on his former boss regarding the widening scandal.
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.
