For John, BLUF: This would be an awkward time to start another Special Counsel, drilling in the opposite direction. But… Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is about former House Democratic Party IT person Imran Awan. The Wikipedia Article takes the approach of his defense attorney, this is all about nothing.
However, Mr Roger Simon disagrees. A few paragraphs down his article we have these two paragraphs:
For years, Imran Awan had access to the secret data and correspondence of many House committees, including foreign affairs. What did he do with it? As I said, that's the worst case scenario (I guess). But I don't want to bury my own lede in a welter of ledes, so here it is:And don't forget "the mysterious death of Seth Rich". Sure, all the conspiracy theories have been "debunked", but now might be a good time to dust them off and maybe add the Pakistani ISI to the mix.
Jeff Sessions should immediately appoint a special counsel in this case whose tentacles are so vast they reach the highest levels of our government. The FBI, working unsupervised, has already been tainted by its heavily-criticized investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails, an investigation that actually may turn out to be related to this one. It cannot be trusted to do this by themselves. We need a special counsel.
When the ISI is involved one can never be sure who is being betrayed.
