Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz plans to speak at a fundraiser hosted by an American Muslim currently listed on the Federal Terrorist Watch List.

Khurrum Wahid, an attorney, is known for publicly defending accused terrorists and involvement with Muslim Brotherhood-type groups. His clients include a man convicted for planning to bomb a subway, a U.S. physician who planned to treat wounded al Qaeda terrorists, and imams who are accused of giving money to the Pakistani Taliban.

Schultz is receiving widespread criticism from both Democrats and Republicans alike. “I’m not sure how much money they will raise at this event, but there is no amount that is worth having the head of the Democratic Party associated with anyone who appears to have a soft spot for terrorism,” a Jewish Democrat told the Washington Free Beacon.
