The "non-scandal" scandal involving a former I.T. aide to several Democratic congressmen, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz, took an interesting turn when the wife of the alleged hacker and fraudster Imran Awan showed up in court separate from her husband and had retained a separate attorney.
Imran Awan's own wife, Hina Alvi, filed papers in a Pakistani court accusing her husband of fraud and of marrying another woman. The couple did not look at each other when they showed up in federal court on Friday.

Wow! DWS sh*tting bricks.
What I.T. scandal? Everyone knows it was the Russians....
"Under U.S. federal common law, the spousal testimonial privilege is held by the witness-spouse, not the party-spouse, and therefore does not prevent a spouse who wishes to testify from doing so. The rationale of this rule is that if a witness-spouse desires to testify against the party-spouse, there is no marital harmony left to protect through the obstruction of such testimony."
Is that illegal in Pakistan?
Oh man, NOW he’s in trouble!
Gosh, this is turning out to be as much fun as the Anthony Weiner scandal.
Wonder if he wired the $$ to a side chick?
Yep, she can testify against him. That should be enough to put some pressure on. She might be precluded from testifying to any marital communications. Different rule.
The biggest spyring in U.S. history and they call it an “IT scandal.”
Yes, but only in court, and only during a proceeding that puts her husband in jeopardy, correct?
They want to nail him for espionage and any number of other items, but the real targets are above him.
The first to squeal gets the deal.
It would nice if someone would clarify: Is it the “DEMOCRAT” Party or the “DEMOCRATIC” PARTY.
Without the ick, the Democrat Party wouldn’t exist.
If you’re a Republican, you’re from the Republican Party.
If you’re a Dummycrat, you’re from the Dumbcrap Party.
“The biggest spyring in U.S. history and they call it an IT scandal.
I’m surprised that they didn’t just call it an “IT glitch”.
It's simply the "RATs"
It was self-chosen in reaction to a GWB campaign commercial where the word "democrat" scrolled across the screen, and the syllable "rat" was the last to disappear.
They whacked....it stuck.
Hoping the wife has a security team assigned to protect her 24/7.
In the Daily Caller I read the wife filed a Pakistani criminal complaint that he married someone else without permission or justification.
No kidding. Frankly I’m surprised they even arrested Imran.
