WASHINGTON — Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz refused to respond Friday to accusations that she attempted to shut down an investigation related to a former IT staffer of hers who made unauthorized access to House servers.

The IT aide, Imran Awan, plus his wife, two brothers and friends are suspected of breaching House IT network rules.

Two House sources told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Luke Rosiak that the former Democratic National Committee chairwoman told House Chief Administrative Officer Phil Kiko, “you will not so much as take away their parking spots.” (RELATED: Sources: Wasserman Schultz Screamed At House Officials To Kill Hacking Probe, Intervened In Pakistani Criminal Matter)

According to TheDCNF, Wasserman Schultz was also being investigated for intervening on a Pakistani land deal Awan was involved in with his father.

The Daily Caller asked Wasserman Schultz repeatedly Friday if she would respond to the insinuations that she attempted to shut down the Awan probe and the Florida Democrat gave no response to that or that she accused a staffer of being an Islamaphobe.
