The convoluted story of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and the DNC

August 20, 2017

  Back in July an IT aide to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Imran Awan, was arrested on bank fraud charges as he tried to flee the country. It is interesting that this man was still on Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s payroll because he and his brothers were under investigation for even more serious charges of illegally accessing government computers and possibly selling the information to foreign governments. Russia anybody?

  All other Democrats, some reports state as many as 30, who were employing the brothers fired them but for some strange reason the former head of the Democratic National Committee did not…

  Here is more on how this convoluted story is progressing:

Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say.

What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects.

Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.


“This is a massive, massive scandal,” a senior US official familiar with the widening probe told The Post.

  This corroborates to a point an accusation made by Judge Napolitano that the Awan brothers had access to the emails of every single member of the Congress and were selling the information.

  As I wrote Imran Awan was arrested on bank fraud charges but that is only the beginning and the FBI is now hoping to flip him:

Now that prosecutors have Awan hung up on the fraud charges, they will try to squeeze him harder in the larger cyberespionage investigation, according to the US official, who expects additional charges and arrests in the case.

Back in October the case was turned over to the Capitol Police:

The evidence was turned over to the House inspector general, who found so much “smoke” that she recommended a criminal probe, sources say. The case was turned over to Capitol Police in October.

  And this is where the story gets even more interesting because in May Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the Capitol Police Chief with “consequences” if her laptop, which is being held as evidence in this case, was not returned to her. 

  Imran Awan must be one indispensable IT guru for Debbie Wasserman Schultz to hold on to him despite all the accusations swirling around him, right? Not so much:

The Democrats who hired the five suspects apparently did a poor job vetting them. Awan’s brother Abid had a rap sheet with multiple offenses, including a conviction for DWI a month before he was hired, and filed for bankruptcy in 2012.

Most had relatively little IT experience. Yet they hauled in a combined $4 million-plus over the past decade. One, a former McDonald’s worker, was suddenly making as much as a chief of staff.

“These lawmakers allowed an insider threat to come into the House,” the official charged. “Computer equipment was stolen, taxpayers were robbed of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and sensitive data was compromised and possibly sold overseas.”

  So it appears as if there was collusion with foreign governments during the 2016 and the decade before the latest election for that matter. No wonder Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in full panic mode following the arrest of Imran Awan. None of this would have come to light except that a funny thing happened on the road to Hillary Clinton’s coronation…

    I had also read where Pakistan’s ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) was provided US security information about India by Awan.

    All of this has been going on for years. Where is the US intelligence agencies? Sounds like we the tax payer are being hosed once again. Loose our liberties for a threat that we can not be secured from.

    Time to fire every spook until we get answers. And DWS should be sent to Federal Prison with no ability to obtain a Presidential pardon.

      That’s a good question, the Awan brothers were employed for a decade by 30 Democrats and it wasn’t until last year they caught on? Makes no sense at all.

      Those who don’t want you stealing from them. Reminds me of this Australia TV show Secret City “Beneath the placid facade of Canberra, amidst rising tension between China and America, senior political journalist Harriet Dunkley uncovers a secret city of interlocked conspiracies, putting innocent lives in danger including her own.” Big Corp heads moving the chess pieces of politics and commerce. Of course, they have to have the ‘man turned women’ and ‘low life’ indoctrination and perverted ‘socialization’, but the point goes w/ your target hit – the corrupt want everyone else to be honest and follow the rules (they make or don’t abide by) so they rape, pillage and grow richer, more powerful without competition!

    It never once occurred to them that Trump might win…. nothing yet in the media, and even Fox has barely had a mention.. I would think Tucker would burn it up on his show since the Daily Caller was the blog that first pushed this.

      Yep, they thought this could be buried because Hillary was going to win but that did not happen. I guess it will be buried because nobody seems to think this is newsworthy.
