Despite Lawsuit, Rod Wheeler Still Appears to be Investigating Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT Staffer

Rod Wheeler has dominated the headlines Tuesday for his lawsuit against Fox News — first reported by NPR — which alleges that the network fabricated quotes attributed to him in an effort to prop up conspiracy theories surrounding the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

But it appears that another case that has been prominent in conservative circles in recent days has been very much on Wheeler’s radar. Wheeler’s Twitter account (which, it should be noted, is unverified) currently includes several Tweets about Imran Awan — the former House Democrats IT staffer who worked directly for former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and was arrested last week for bank fraud.

After retweeting Politico‘s account of Awan’s arrest, Wheeler Tweeted this on July 26:

Wheeler did not comment on the specific “cases” to which he was he was referring. But later on July 26, he retweeted two followers who wrote the following:

We should add the disclaimer, here, employed by so many Twitter users (though not Wheeler) — that retweets should not necessarily be considered endorsements. But the original Tweet and the retweets certainly do pose all sorts of questions in light of Wheeler’s new lawsuit.
