Democratic members of Congress, like many of their Republicans colleagues, like to come across as know-it-alls, who’s word is gold and above reproach.
But when it comes to potentially criminal and ethical issues that they may or may not be entangled in, convenient amnesia sets in, or the “know-it-alls” act as if they are clueless about the matter.
This appears to be the case in the recent Fusion GPS opposition research dossier case and the Awan IT scandal that has thrusted the Democratic Party into a bit of a political tailspin.
President Trump ridiculed Democrats for not knowing who authorized the $10 million payout to the firm that put together the dossier against him.
But what about that other story that Democrats wish would just go away?
Yes, the IT scandal story that landed a Democratic aide in jail on a bank fraud charge, and the one the mainstream media refuses to report on.
Imran Awan, the aide, was paid by quite a few members of the Democratic caucus in the House, including Florida Reps. Lois Frankel, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and Ted Deutch.
Rep. Deutch, who sits on the House Ethics Committee, has yet to launch and investigation into dealings with the Awan clan.
Why would Deutch investigate himself?
The Daily Caller Foundation, who has taken the lead on the House IT scandal, caught up to Rep. Deutch on a couple occasions, and was stiff-armed by the 3-term member of Congress.

In one encounter with DC Reporter Kerry Picket, Deutch tells her that he would like to address the issue, but needed her to set up the interview through her office.
Why not answer the simple questions right there on the spot, like he does with most other questions posed to him by reporters? Also, Deutch said he has at dinner with his daughter, but was he really?
Deutch’s never responded back to the DC, and he has dodged any and all questions regarding his involvement in the whole IT scandal.
The Awan IT scandal could have greater national security implications after it was learned that Awan himself wired $200,000 to an individual in Pakistan, who could have ties to radical Islamic terrorism.
GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis, “who agrees that Wasserman Schultz needs to answer to Congress about what she knows regarding her former IT aide, expressed deep concern about the money transferred to Pakistan and Awan’s “connections to a Hezbollah-linked character in Iraq.”
