Luke Rosiak (@lukerosiak) is an investigative reporter for the Daily Caller News Foundation where he broke arguably one of the biggest scandals in the history of the federal government -- one the media refused to cover and the prosecutors refused to prosecute. 

This is the story of Awangate, which proved no match for Russiagate -- but should have on its merits.

It is the subject of Rosiak's Obstruction of Justice: How the Deep State Risked National Security to Protect the Democrats, a book that has taken on new significance as the treasonous Russian collusion narrative collapses.

I had Luke Rosiak on the podcast to reflect on the story of the Awans, and its far broader significance for our nation.

What We Discussed
  • How the Awans amassed so much power on Capitol Hill
  • The breathtaking litany of criminality of the Awan conspiracy
  • Why and how House Democrats and the Department of Justice covered up Awangate – and House Republicans enabled it
  • Why Rosiak is confident members of Congress were blackmailed and are still susceptible to blackmail by the Awans, how deep the blackmail threat runs and why Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s behavior proves it
  • How politicians and bureaucrats put self-interest above national security
  • The inextricably intertwined relationship between Russiagate and Awangate, and what both “investigations” say about the Deep State
  • The Democrat-Media-Deep State collusion over Awangate
  • Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her underlings’ role in rigging the Awan case for the Democrats’ benefit
  • The government’s failure to do anything to prevent future Awans from infiltrating Congress
