Hmmm....possible source of the DNC wikileaks fiasco?


House conservatives want to investigate three IT employees, all brothers, suspected of compromising the networks of Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Conservative Republicans — disappointed in House Democrats for hushing up the issue and in the media for failing to widely report the story — hope the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (HOGR) will examine how House Democratic offices allowed the potential breach in national security information.

The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group was first to identify suspects Abid, Imran and Jamal Awan, who are under a U.S. Capitol Police criminal investigation for their use of congressional IT systems and alleged theft and over-billing of computer equipment.

Starting to see through the fog of why the dems are so hell bent on Russia hacking the election. Look like they may have been the whole problem. Look who have been compromised and what they do for dnc.

As reported by the Daily Caller, “Rogue congressional staffers took $100,000 from an Iraqi politician while they had administrator-level access to the House of Representatives’ computer network, according to court documents examined by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

The money was a loan from a Dr. Ali al-Attar, an Iraqi political figure, and was funneled through a company with “impossible”-to-decipher financial transactions that the congressional information technology (IT) staffers controlled.

Imran Awan, ringleader of the group that includes his brothers Abid and Jamal, has provided IT services since 2005 for Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman.

The brothers are from Pakistan. The trio also worked for dozens of other House Democrats, including members of the intelligence, foreign affairs and homeland security committees. Those positions likely gave them access to congressional emails and other sensitive documents.

The brothers, whose access to House IT networks has been terminated, are under criminal investigation by the U.S. Capitol Police. Wasserman Schultz resigned from her DNC post following a disastrous email hack during the 2016 campaign. Her House spokesman did not respond to TheDCNF’s question Monday about Imran’s employment status.

As of Feb. 6, she had declined to fire Imran. Investigators found that congressional information was being copied to an off-site server and they suspect the brothers of improperly accessing information and stealing congressional property. Chiefs of staff for the employing Democrats were notified Feb. 2.

Soon after Imran began working for members of Congress, Imran’s and Abid’s wives — Hina Alvi and Natalia Sova — also began receiving congressional paychecks, TheDCNF found. Imran’s employers included two members of the intelligence committee, Indiana Democrat Rep. Andre Carson and California Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier. By 2009, the family was simultaneously managing a full-time car dealership in Virginia, with Abid running day-to-day operations after contributing $250,000 in startup cash. It was called Cars International A, LLC, referred to as “CIA” in court documents.

Imran boasted unusual clout among House Democrats, and was even pictured conversing with former President Bill Clinton. After Rao Abbas, who was owed money by the dealership, threatened to sue amidst allegations of deception and theft, Abbas appeared on the congressional payroll and received $250,000 in taxpayer payments.”

Now, I’m onboard a cruise ship, but we still get the news, and I haven’t seen any of this covered on CNN, NBC or MSNBC. I saw a lot of coverage about the “not my president” protest or the protests in London to refuse our president the invitation to an official state visit. This is what the American people see, and it angers them — the blatant duplicitous hypocrisy. Comparing the November election to 9-11 or Pearl Harbor is insidious and far over the top, but that’s NEWS on the liberal progressive left.

Ok, let’s just imagine this, if we had three Russian brothers who were IT specialists working for Republican Members of Congress…yep, you get my drift. The story would be all over the place and there would be demands for these Members of Congress to step down, certainly be investigated.

But have you heard anything about this story, this revelation? As Ricky Bobby would say, “this just happened” but not in the world of the left. You see, the leftist media dismisses that which does not serve their ideological agenda and talking points. There is no way they’re going to bring this to light, just like there’s no such thing as an IRS scandal, and nothing happened in Benghazi. Or what is Extortion 17? Who is Army 1LT Clint Lorance? This isn’t so much about “fake news,” it’s about “selected news” and that is always about what the left deems important. CHILLING new scandal hits Democrats; media SILENT - Allen B.

ah, the damaging light of day, causes the cockroaches to flee. If the DNC/Clinton/Obama/Soros had such a great hold on the populace, why were they doing all this underhanded , shifty stuff? Truth is, they didn't. They knew that they had to cheat to win, and when they didn't they are now terrified of being exposed.

laughing my ass off. crooks and bums....

Democrats have been calling for an investigation into the leaks. Republicans have been saying there is nothing there to investigate.

But the Capitol Police don't answer to Congress or the President and are pursuing this as a criminal case, not a political one.

Republicans, if they were not afraid of being implicated, would have jumped on this. But they were too unsure of if Trump were really involved and Trump has put them in a position of not believing anything he says. Can you blame them for ignoring this?

Hopefully the police will get to the bottom of this and not allow the perps to skip the country.

Like G. W. Bush did with the Bin Laden family after 9/11.

You remind me of the Contraire's in Little Big Man....

It's the dems who are named and implicated if you read the stories. It's the dems own private network....dems don't let those stinking republicans into their private networks.

Republicans wouldn't hire no Islam dudes....we'd execute them.

You sure are fun to have around, that's for sure......

Congressional technology aides are baffled that data-theft allegations against four former House IT workers — who were banned from the congressional network — have largely been ignored, and they fear the integrity of sensitive high-level information.

Imran Awan and three relatives were colleagues until police banned them from computer networks at the House of Representatives after suspicion the brothers accessed congressional computers without permission.

Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them. The baffled aides wonder if the suspects are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access.

“I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point” with no arrests, said Pat Sowers, who has managed IT for several House offices for 12 years. “Something is rotten in Denmark.”

The investigation goes far beyond the theft of millions of dollars. The employees could read all emails dozens of members of Congress sent and received, as well as access any files members and their staff stored. Court records show the brothers ran a side business that owed $100,000 to an Iranian fugitive who has been tied to Hezbollah, and their stepmother says they often send money to Pakistan.

FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation.

Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, an individual whom FBI investigators interviewed in the case told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

An additional source in Congress with direct knowledge of the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.

Shortly after the criminal probe was revealed in February, Imran abruptly moved out of his longtime home on Hawkshead Drive in Lorton, Va., and listed it for rent on a website that connects landlords with military families.

One of the new tenants — a Marine Corps veteran married to a female Navy Officer — said he found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner.”

The tenants called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and, not long after, FBI agents arrived together with the Capitol Police to interview them and confiscate the equipment. The Marine spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his wife’s naval career, saying she doesn’t want to be associated with a national security incident.

“It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.”

The Marine said Imran wanted the hard drives back so desperately that he threatened to sue the renter for stealing them.

“It was unbelievable. I don’t know where they get off thinking they’re going to sue us for items we have no obligation to hold onto,” he said.

Imran came to the house for the items “three to four times,” but the Marine wouldn’t let him enter.

He believes “there’s no way they could get this far without help” from some of the Democratic members of Congress for whom the brothers worked. Other Democrats have ignored a major security breach because it could look like a “black eye” in that they failed to vet the Pakistanis, he said.
