A whole host of major red flags'

A court hearing has been scheduled for Friday in an unsolved Obama-era scandal involving the brothers hired by House Democrats who were fired when one was identified as "an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives."

That was when a computer server containing evidence had gone "missing," noted Washington watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking information on the Awan brothers case,

 

"The Awan Brothers IT scandal implicates national security and involves a cover-up by House Democrat leadership and, now, the Deep State DOJ," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

Judicial Watch launched a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit in 2018 after the FBI declined to respond adequately to two separate FOIA requests.

 

The watchdog wanted to see records from "any investigations or preliminary investigations involving former congressional IT support staffers Abid Awan, Imran Awan, Jamal Awan, and Hina R. Alvi."

The DOJ had said in court it would start producing records by Nov. 5 but failed.

A week later, the DOJ said it was having "technical difficulties."

"In a joint status report filed on December 5, 2019, Judicial Watch reported to the court that the DOJ claimed in a phone call that it was now unable to produce any records to either of the FOIA requests 'because the agency was waiting for some unspecified action by Judge [Tanya S.] Chutkan in some other matter so as to avoid having to produce records in this case,'" Judicial Watch said.

Explained Judicial Watch: "Imran Awan and his family were banned from the House computer network in February 2017 after the House’s top law enforcement officer wrote that Imran is 'an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives, possibly threatening the integrity of our information systems,' and that a server containing evidence had gone 'missing.' The inspector general said server logs showed 'unauthorized access' and procurement records were falsified."

Imran Awan worked for a top aide for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., and others.

"Most lawmakers fired Awan ... but Wasserman Schultz kept him on until he was arrested in July 2017, trying to board a flight for Pakistan," Judicial Watch said.

He later was given a plea deal, admitting to federal bank fraud.

Said Judicial Watch: "The Awan brothers reportedly 'were not given background checks before being given access to highly sensitive government information and no explanations have been given as to why.' Additionally, 'If they would have run this background check it would have found out not only multiple criminal convictions, but $1 million bankruptcy, a dozen lawsuits ... it would have found a whole host of major red flags and the Democrats didn't do any of those checks.'"

The watchdog explained earlier that there were cases of "unauthorized access" while the Awans were running things.

Imran Awan pleaded guilty to bank fraud before Chutkan in Washington.

 

Wasserman Schultz had charged the investigation was motivated by "Islamophobia," despite evidence presented by a House inspector general appointed by then-Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. The IG suspected Awan and his co-workers were diverting information from Democratic lawmakers' computers, including members of House intelligence committees.

Imran Awan, and his brothers Abid and Jamal, allegedly ran a ghost employee scheme along with their wives that took in nearly $6 million over the years. After wiring approximately $300,000 to his native Pakistan in July 2017, Imran Awan was arrested by the FBI at Dulles International Airport and indicted on four counts of bank fraud after prosecutors said the suspects tried to flee the country. He was carrying $12,000 in cash at the time of his arrest.

^^^ Russia never hacked the DNC, the Awans sold the information to Pakistani Intelligence who in turn sold/gave it to the Russians and Chinese.

 

It wasn't just the DNC server they had access to, the Awans were IT support for a lot of Democrat Congressmen and Senators, and had complete access to their systems. Not hard to imagine the embarrassing fallout from that if ever it became public.

 

The Awans were given a slap on the wrist, and a get the hell of Dodge ASAP and don't come back in exchange for a potential 20 - life espionage conviction.

I suspect it will be much like the Democrats Impeachment investigation.

 

We know what happened but we can't really prove anything happened.

Another example of a huge scandal that is ignored by the paste eaters because they were told to ignore it.

 

Democrats proved to the world that they can not be trusted with security of any kind.

 

Between hacks and embassys being attacked and hiring foreign nationals from hostile nations to manage servers and passwords, it's really hard to continue to buy this notion that Democrats are simply incompetent.  

 

But that's what they are selling.  Odd thing to puff your chest out about but low standards... no standards.  Its who they are

They are complicit, not incompetent.

Listening to comey this weekend was pathetic.    The fact that he thinks he is doing a victory lap with the claim that he is merely incompetent, stupid and negligent .....but not treasonous was about the most pathetic political road show I have ever seen.

 

Whatever happened to dignity.

Any aid we may give the Paki's should be w/held if they won't extradite this crew of spies; we can then watch today's current crop of Leftists defend Pakistan over America.
