If you don’t watch Fox News, chances are you’ve missed the latest  Washington, D.C., scandal that’s not been widely covered, with virtually no investigative reporting. Former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is embroiled in an FBI investigation of three Pakistani nationals who had unfettered access to several congressional Democratic computers, including Wasserman Schultz’s computer password.

One man, Imran Awan, recently was arrested boarding a plane to Pakistan and has been charged with conspiracy and bank fraud. Most disturbing is the fact that Awan had access to computers assigned to Democrats on the Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees and classified information on those computers.

Wasserman Schultz is accused of obstructing FBI agents from accessing her computer at first. Fox now reports Awan possibly had access to Wasserman Schultz’s emails and is now being investigated for possibly selling documents to Russia. Possible leaker of DNC emails during last year’s campaign, one might ask? Russian collusion?

And yet there have been no calls for any special prosecutor or grand jury inquiry from Democrats or their allies in the media. Not a story worthy of even being reported by many news outlets. Strange.

We all know Wasserman Schultz colluded with the Clinton campaign against Bernie Sanders. And her justification for not firing Awan? That would be racist and Islamophobic!

So we have a media blackout, lying, collusion, dirty campaign politics, possible obstruction of an FBI investigation and incompetence handling confidential or classified information. Sounds like we’ve found the perfect replacement candidate for Hillary Clinton in 2020.

As Yogi Berra famously stated, “It’s deja vu all over again.”
