After lying, claiming the laptop the police confiscated was hers, Wasserman Schultz has now admitted that the laptop belongs to a man who was just arrested attempting to flee the country.
Imran Awan was on Wasserman Schultz’s staff as an IT technician.
He is accused of bank fraud, and many suspect he was blackmailing Congressional Democrats after being fired for illegally accessing the network.
Awan, a Pakistani native, remained on the Wasserman Schultz payroll and he also had access to all DNC emails.

However, as we mentioned above, now her story is changing.
From Daily Caller
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz never actually saw the computer she fought to block the Capitol Police from examining as evidence in a criminal case against her IT aide by saying it was hers, she told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel Thursday.
She threatened “consequences” on May 18 for the chief of the Capitol Police unless the laptop was returned — despite police contending it was needed to help determine whether a staffer may have violated the House’s cybersecurity.
“This was not my laptop. I have never seen that laptop. I don’t know what’s on the laptop,” she said Thursday. She said it was Imran’s laptop but purchased using taxpayer funds from her office.
After the exchange with Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa, Wasserman Schultz fought to block access to the laptop so vehemently that she hired an outside law firm to argue constitutional issues, an exceedingly rare step.
In the May hearing on the Capitol Police’s budget, she repeatedly posed hypotheticals about if a member loses their laptop and it is found by police. The police chief, clearly aware of the situation to which she is referring, says if the laptop belongs to a criminal suspect, it may be seized as evidence.
