I am really loving this. Democrats are about to find themselves the subject of a major scandal. Not only that but it could knock Russia right off the investigative agenda. It all revolves around Imran Awan, the alleged IT expert who worked for a slew of democrats, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz. He had access to all of the emails of the DNC and once he had Podesta’s email address, he could have hacked them, too. How about a special prosecutor investigating the careless democrats.
Awan made a mad dash for the airport just hours after he found out he was being investigated by the FBI, who caught him just as he was about to skip the country. We already know that he transferred a lot of emails to a private server that he controlled and the Marine who rented his house found a ton of equipment belonging to the government, including hard drives that he tried to destroy. The Marine gave the equipment to the NCIS.
Bill Miller, spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, told TheDCNF that Awan “was arraigned today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on one count of bank fraud, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1344. He pled not guilty and was released pursuant to a high-intensity supervision program. The conditions of release are that he receive a GPS monitor, he abide by a curfew of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., and that he not leave a 50-mile radius of his residence in Virginia. Awan was also ordered to turn over all of his passports.”
Soon after Imran began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, four of his relatives appeared on the payroll of other Democrats — many from Wasserman Schultz’s home state of Florida — at inflated salaries, but Democratic staffers said they were rarely seen at work. They collected $4 million in total.
House authorities told members in February that Awan and his relatives were suspects in a criminal investigation into theft and IT abuses, and they were banned from the Capitol network.
Wasserman Schultz refused to fire Awan, despite being the suspect in a hacking probe, and has blocked Capitol Police from searching a laptop they confiscated because it was tied to Awan.
TheDCNF reported Sunday night that the FBI had joined the investigation and seized smashed hard drives from Awan’s home.
His stepmother filed court documents accusing him of wiretapping and extorting her (see p. 23 of court documents in that case), but Democratic members of Congress, including Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York, suggested that police had framed the Pakistani-born brothers out of Islamophobia.
The question I have is why did the democrats allow all of this to go on? Were they being blackmailed over the information the Awan’s stole from them. I have to go order popcorn and Diet Pepsi, so that I will be prepared for the congressional hearings.
