Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Records of Investigations into the Awan Brothers, Congressional Democrat IT Scandal


Unless the FBI rank and file begin contacting Congress (Probably the Senate since blind voters gave the House to the Dems) and blowing the whistle on what is apparent FBI leadership corruption and coverups to protect Dems & Obamanites, I will begin to consider the rank and file to be just as corrupt.

 

AND YES, fired/resigned former AG Jeff Sessions is part of this problem for failing in DOJ transparency of which the FBI is supposed to answer. So when hear Dems, many Republicans and definitely the Mainstream Media (including Fox News) tell you Sessions you a raw deal; those people are liars or idiots for being deceived.

 

Judicial Watch smells yet another FBI coverup to protect Dems. In this case Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz in relation to (Pakistani) Awan family members acting as IT specialists working for the Dems: Abid, Imran, Jamal and Hina R. Alvi.

Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Records of Investigations into the Awan Brothers, Congressional Democrat IT Scandal

 

JW Press Room

NOVEMBER 08, 2018

Judicial Watch

 

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Justice Department for all records of communications relating to the investigation into former Democratic information technology (IT) staffers Abid Awan, Imran Awan, Jamal Awan and Hina R. Alvi (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-02563)).

 

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 was Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s top information technology aide. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Wasserman Schultz kept him on until he was arrested in July, trying to board a flight for Pakistan.

 

Imran Awan was allowed a plea deal. He pleaded guilty to federal bank fraud but prosecutors found no evidence that Awan “violated federal law with respect to the House computer systems.”

 

The Judicial Watch lawsuit was filed after the FBI failed to respond adequately to two FOIA requests.

 

The FBI claimed it could neither confirm nor deny records related to the first request, filed on May 26, 2017, seeking:

 

  • All records related to any investigations or preliminary investigations involving former congressional IT support staffers Abid Awan, Imran Awan, Jamal Awan, and Hina R. Alvi. As part of this request, searches should of records [sic] should include, but not be limited to, the FBI automated indices, its older manual indices, and its Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Data Management System (EDMS), as well as cross-referenced files.

 

  • All records of communication sent to or from FBI employees, officials or contractors involving the subjects in bullet item 1.

 

The timeframe for the requested records is May 2015 to the present.

 

Further, the FBI claimed that records related to a July 3, 2018, FOIA request were located in an investigative file and exempt from disclosure. That request sought:

 

  • All records related to any investigations or preliminary investigations involving former congressional IT support staffers Abid Awan, Imran Awan, Jamal Awan, Hina R. Alvi and Rao Abbas. As part of this request, searches of records should include, but not be limited to, the FBI automated indices, its older manual indices, and its Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Data Management System (EDMS), as well as cross-referenced files.

 

  • All records of communications, including but not limited to emails (whether on .gov or non-.gov email accounts), text messages, instant chats or messages on the Lync system, sent to or from FBI employees, officials or contractors involving the Awan brothers, Ms. Alvi and Mr. Abbas. Records of communications searched should include but not be limited to those between FBI officials, employees and contractors and officials with the Capitol Police, the Office of the Inspector General of the House, and the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House.

 

“It’s time for the full truth to come out about the House Democrat IT scandal, especially with impending change of power in the House,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “There is hope that the new leadership at the DOJ will bring transparency to this case, as well as many pending FOIA investigations.”

 

On October 11, 2017, Judicial Watch President, Tom Fitton participated in a discussion between House members and experts regarding the Wasserman Schultz/Awan Brothers/IT scandal. During this discussion, Fitton stated:

 

“Frankly when it comes to crimes with a political component, I fear the Justice Department is going to fear to tread. And because of the political nature of what went on (with the Awan family) they’re not going to push the House … and I fear that the Justice Department will be fearful of raising these issues with the House for fear of embarrassing the leadership of both parties … and that’s something we need to push the Justice Department on. That they don’t under-charge or under-investigate this for fear of the consequences that will happen if they push further and find something that no one wants to find, which is a national security threat at our breast here in the House.”

 

On June 7, 2018, President Donald Trump tweeted, “Our Justice Department must not let Awan & Debbie Wasserman Schultz off the hook. The Democrat I.T. scandal is a key to much of the corruption we see today. They want to make a “plea deal” to hide what is on their Server. Where is Server? Really bad!”

Awan Funneling ‘Massive’ Data Off Congressional Server, Dems Claim It’s Child’s HOMEWORK


VIDEO: MeTV Hogan’s Heroes Promo

Wasserman Shultz & Sgt. Schultz

 

If you listen to the Mainstream Media (MSM) you probably are little aware of Imran Awan, the Pakistani national who served as a House IT guy for a lot of Dems including Debbie Wasserman-Schultz the former DNC Chairman (Chairwoman, Chairperson or whatever politically correct terminology you feel comfortable about) who fixed the Dem nomination for Crooked Hillary.

 

Apart from all the criminal enterprises Awan used to self-aggrandize himself and his immediate family, it appears Awan snatched terabits of data from the House Dems which went or was used for whatever is not yet public. (For my fellow computer illiterates, I just learned there is a difference between a terabit and a terabyte.)

 

All this time the Dems and their legions in the MSM have trying to paint President Donald Trump as the nemesis to the America that elected him to Office. AND YET the Daily Caller and Circa have uncovered that the Dems are attempting to pass the fake news that Awan’s much usage of terabits of data from House servers is nothing to see here, just forget about it and move on.

Awan Funneling ‘Massive’ Data Off Congressional Server, Dems Claim It’s Child’s HOMEWORK

 

By Luke Rosiak

September 26, 2017 7:20 PM 

The Daily Caller

 

Democratic congressional aides made unauthorized access to a House server 5,400 times and funneled “massive” amounts of data off of it. But there’s nothing to see here, Democrats told The Washington Post: They were just storing and then re-downloading homework assignments for Imran Awan’s elementary-school aged kids and family pictures.

 

A congressional source with direct knowledge of the incident contradicted the Post’s account, saying that now-indicted IT aide Imran Awan and his associates “were moving terabytes off-site so they could quote ‘work on the files’” and that they desperately tried to hide what was on the server when caught, providing police with what law enforcement immediately recognized as falsified evidence and an indication of criminal intent.

 

WATCH ROSIAK’S REPORTING ON AWAN CASE SO FAR:

 

Youtube version of Daily Caller VIDEO: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Corruption Continues: Awan Brothers IT Scandal

 

Posted by The Daily Caller

Published on Jul 31, 2017

 

Daily Caller’s Luke Rosiak investigates a story that further embroils embattled former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz in an ever-growing scandal.

 

The Post described the amount of data improperly flowing out of the congressional network as “massive.” One congressional source told Circa it was “terabits.”

 

A terabyte is a million megabytes; a terabit is about one-tenth of that. Awan’s three children are in elementary school or younger. A book report in Word document format could clock in at under a megabyte, even if it were 100 pages long. To fill a terabyte with family photos, a person would need 250,000 photos.

 

Rules aside, there would be little reason for a staffer to upload his children’s homework and family photos to a congressman’s server. For one, cloud services such as Google Drive and Google Photos readily provide that functionality, with a web interface. The congressional computer was a server with no monitor, so you couldn’t view the photos on it, and they had to have been uploaded onto it by another computer. It makes little sense that Awan would upload personal data from a home computer onto a House server only to re-download it.

 

Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, was the sole person that was supposed to be authorizing the Caucus server, and she could have uploaded pictures of her children without attracting attention.

 

Yet she accessed it only 300 times as part of her job, while other people — including Awan’s two brothers and his friend Rao Abbas — accessed it 5,400 times. It’s unclear why extended family and friends would be uploading Awan’s kids’ homework and pictures more than their own mother would.

 

The Post did not note the “massive” outgoing data and unauthorized access until the 40th and 42nd paragraphs of its story, after it had quoted multiple defense attorneys and ventured into a lengthy and seemingly irrelevant but humanizing backstory on Awan’s childhood.

 

Its print headline was “Evidence Far Exceeds Intrigue” in the probe, yet it quoted only a congressional staffer who, The DCNF’s congressional source said, would not have been able to make assurances that there was nothing to the criminal investigation, because Congress has been fire walled from the criminal probe since it was turned over.

 

The Post also did not specify that data was also being backed up online via unofficial Dropbox accounts. Wasserman Schultz has acknowledged that the accounts were used for congressional data, and that she has used the service in violation of House rules “for years.”

 

The server was under the auspices of Xavier Becerra, who left Congress Jan. 24 to become California attorney general and asked for the server to be wiped at that time. Police first asked for a copy and received what they identified as an elaborately falsified image, leading police to ban them from the network immediately because they viewed it as an attempt to tamper with a criminal investigation and an indication of clear criminal intent, The DCNF reported before the Post story ran. The Awans were banned from the House network Feb. 2.

 

The Post reported:

 

By midsummer [2016], with the approval of the House Administration Committee, the Inspector General’s Office was tracking the five employees’ logins. In October, they found “massive” amounts of data flowing from the networks they were accessing, raising the possibility that an automated program was vacuuming up information, according to a senior House official familiar with the probe.

 

Initially, investigators could not see precisely what kind of data was moving off the server due to legal protections afforded by the Constitution’s “speech and debate” clause, which shields lawmakers’ deliberations from investigators’ eyes.

 

Investigators found that the five IT employees had logged on at one server for the Democratic Caucus more than 5,700 times over a seven-month period, according to documents reviewed by The Post. Alvi, the only one of the five who was authorized to access that server, accounted for fewer than 300 of those logins, documents show.

 

The invocation of “speech and debate” suggests that Democrats barred law enforcement from looking at the apparent data breach. The Post — which has highlighted the importance of cybersecurity and the intolerability of hacks on government — suggested finding any of this odd would be “unfounded conspiracy theories and intrigue.”

 

Yet, according to a senior congressional official familiar with the probe, criminal investigators have found no evidence that the IT workers had any connection to a foreign government. Investigators looking for clues about espionage instead found that the workers were using one congressional server as if it were their home computer, storing personal information such as children’s homework and family photos, the official said.

 

There are indications that Awan is less than a doting family man, and that he would use his congressional position for ill. Three women have called police on him in the last three years. One is his stepmother, Samina Gilani, who said she was kept “in captivity.” In court documents, she alleged: “Imran Awan threatened that he is very powerful and if I ever call the police [he] will do harm to me and my family members back in Pakistan and one of my cousins here in Baltimore … Imran Awan did admit to me that my phone is tapped and there are devices installed in my house to listen my all conversations … Imran Awan introduces himself as someone from U.S. Congress or someone from federal agencies.”

 

A second told police she felt “like a slave,” and a third said she “just wanted to leave.” The latter two were apparently in romantic relationships with Awan, who lived in small apartments in Alexandria, Va. that he paid for while he lived with his wife.

 

Awan began selling off many of the multiple houses that his family owns around the time he learned he was subject of the cybersecurity probe, and wired money to Pakistan, resulting in Awan and his wife being indicted for bank fraud.

 

The Post confirmed that Democratic IT aides had no experience, such as Rao Abbas, who worked at McDonald’s. But it did not mention that an Iraqi politician tied to Hezbollah sent $100,000 to a company the family set up while working for Congress, and that Awan had a secret account unknown to authorities, 123@mail.house.gov, that was tied to the name of an intelligence specialist working for Rep. Andre Carson of Indiana. The intelligence specialist denies knowing anything about the account.

Connect Dots on Real Collusion


Compiled by John R. Houk

Posted July 31,2017

 

It’s time to play connect the dots with the real collusion story the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) will not do for you. The fear I have is that the GOP elitists are so into maintaining a swamp status quo, that they will not follow through in decriminalizing the U.S. Federal Government. So check out these dots and tell me where they lead.

Fmr. Clinton aide details how Obama has set up secret ‘war room’ blocks from the White House to destroy Trump

 

By Carmine Sabia 

July 31, 2017

BizPAC Review

 

A former adviser to President Bill Clinton says there is a secret war room, run by the staff of former President Obama, miles from the White House that is designed to bring down President Donald Trump.

 

In a YouTube video shared on Thursday, Dick Morris, who worked for former President Clinton, said, “there is indication that Obama has set up a secret operation in a war room just about 2 miles from the White House.”  The staff consists of former Barack and Michelle Obama aides among others, and has two conference calls daily to create talking points against the president, held at 8:30 am and 9:45 am, according to Morris.

On the call are Andrew Slavitt, who served as the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who also headed Health and Human Services, as saving Obamacare is of paramount concern.

 

“There operation is just a few blocks from the Capitol and it’s in a war room run by Leslie Dash, one of (former President) Obama’s top health care officials. Coordinating a nationwide anti-repeal campaign by liberal think tanks, local resistance groups — sympathetic governors, Medicaid insurance lobbyists, Democratic activists, pollsters and academics. It was conceived in the hours after (President) Trump was elected in November and the group called itself Protect Our Care,” Morris said.

 

“The covert part of the resistance in these moles who are buried in the Trump administration who are leaking to sabotage (President) Trump,” he added.

 

In March it was reported that former top aide to President Obama, Valerie Jarrett, was moving in with the Obama family as part of an operation to resist President Trump.

 

According to the rumors, Jarrett and Michelle Obama were creating a “nerve center” to figure out ways to remove President Trump from office, either by forcing him to resign or having him impeached.

 

Morris expounded on that idea on Sunday when he appeared on New York AM 970’s “The Cats Roundtable,” with host John Catsimatidis, a former candidate for mayor of New York City.

 

“The main thing that is going on, though, in politics is really an attempt at a coup d’etat, which is essentially what this whole Russian stuff is,” Morris told Catsimatidis. “In fact, I call it the illusion of collusion. The whole Democratic party is so taken up with the idea that Hillary [Clinton] lost the election because of collusion between Trump and [Vladimir] Putin.”

 

“I think the whole thing has been cooked up in an effort to topple Trump from power,” he said. “It amounts really to a coup d’etat between the intelligence community on the one hand and the media on the other.”

Wasserman Schultz Seemingly Planned To Pay Suspect Even While He Lived In Pakistan

 

By Luke Rosiak – Investigative Reporter

07/29/2017 4:05 PM 

Daily Caller News Foundation

 

Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz seemingly planned to pay cyber-probe suspect and IT aide Imran Awan even while he was living in Pakistan, if the FBI hadn’t stopped him from leaving the U.S. Monday. Public statements and congressional payroll records suggest she also appears to have known that his wife, a fellow IT staffer, left the country for good months ago — while she was also a criminal suspect.

 

In all, six months of actions reveal a decision to continue paying a man who seemingly could not have been providing services to her, and who a mountain of evidence suggests was a liability. The man long had access to all of Wasserman Schultz’s computer files, work emails and personal emails, and he was recently accused by a relative in court documents of wiretapping and extortion.

 

Records also raise questions about whether the Florida Democrat permitted Awan to continue to access computers after House-wide authorities banned him from the network Feb. 2. Not only did she keep him on staff after the ban, but she also did not have any other IT person to perform necessary work that presumably would have arisen during a months-long period, according to payroll records.

 

Wasserman Schultz employed Pakistani-born Awan and his wife Hina Alvi, and refused to fire either of them even after U.S. Capitol Police said in February 2017 that they were targets of the criminal investigation. She said police wouldn’t show her evidence against the couple and, without it, she assumed they might be victims of anti-Muslim profiling.

 

Awan booked a round-trip ticket to Pakistan in July and planned to depart Monday, July 24 with a return ticket in six months. He was arrested at Dulles Airport during his attempt to leave.

 

The Associated Press reported that Awan’s lawyer, Chris Gowen, said Awan “had informed the House of his plans to visit his family.”

 

Wasserman Schultz’s spokesman cited Awan’s Monday arrest as the reason for ending his employment on Tuesday: “Upon learning of his arrest, he was terminated.”

 

The office’s insistence that his termination was prompted by the Monday arrest — and not the House Sergeant at Arms banning him and his wife from touching congressional computers or his six months in Pakistan — suggests that had he boarded the flight without incident he would still be on payroll.

 

“Does that mean if he had boarded the flight as planned the office would have been paying him for six months while he was abroad?” The DCNF investigative group asked Wasserman Schultz’s spokesman Thursday. “Why would it do that?” The spokesman did not respond.

 

Awan’s wife, Hina, left the country under similar circumstances March 5, after withdrawing the couple’s three kids from school without telling Virginia education officials, packing up all of her possessions, and hiding $12,000 in cash, according to an FBI affidavit. She allegedly had hundreds of thousands of dollars waiting in Pakistan for her — money the FBI says Awan had obtained partly through mortgage fraud and had wired overseas using a false explanation.

 

Two days later, on March 7, House records show Hina was cut from Wasserman Schultz’s payroll.

 

Though Hina bought a round trip ticket with a return in six months, the FBI said it “does not believe that Alvi has any intention to return to the United States.”

 

Wasserman Schultz spokesman David Darmrom did not respond to a DCNF IG request to explain why Hina had been terminated two days into a trip she claimed was temporary, while her husband had not been terminated for a six-month move. Between the part-time nature of her work and the ban, her absence was unlikely to have been noticed in two days without someone telling the office her plans.

 

Wasserman Schultz’s office also didn’t answer if the office knew Hina’s “round trip” was a permanent move.

 

Hina and Awan were both IT aides whose jobs required access to the network, but the House Sergeant-At-Arms banned them from accessing it beginning Feb. 2. Awan and Hina were her only IT staffers, and payroll records through the latest available period, March 31, indicate that no other IT staffer or vendor was added to the payroll after their ban.

 

A House source said Awan was seen in the House office building multiple times after the network ban. “Imran Awan is working in an “advisory” role for Wasserman Schultz, her spokesman said, “providing advice on technology issues.”

 

The spokesman wouldn’t say who did the office’s computer work after the ban, if not Awan.

 

As IT administrators, the suspects could read all emails sent and received by the lawmaker and see all files on the staff members’ computers, numerous House IT aides said. WikiLeaks shows that Awan also had the password to Wasserman Schultz’s iPad.

 

In public court documents filed in Fairfax, Va., Awan’s stepmother accused him of wiretapping and extortion. “Imran Awan did admit to me that my phone is tapped and there are devices installed in my house” and “Imran Awan threatened that he is very powerful and if I ever call the police again, [he] will … kidnap my family members back in Pakistan,” his stepmother, Samina Gilani, claimed in the documents (p. 21) filed April 14.

 

Despite her professed concern of stereotyping, all other colleagues who employed Awan, Hina or their other relatives on House payrolls fired them, including Rep. Andre Carson of Indiana, who is Muslim and has criticized Wasserman Schultz for blocking police from examining a laptop tied to Imran.

 

That laptop was found in an unused crevice of a House office building and seized as evidence by the Capitol Police, but Wasserman Schultz appeared determined to not let police see its contents, threatening “consequences” for the police chief if he didn’t release it. The exchange was captured on video.

 

Fox News reported that months later, she had blocked them from looking at it but had become open to “negotiating” with police, possibly turning over certain files, as Hillary Clinton was permitted to do in deciding which emails were “personal.”

 

Observers have decried Wasserman Schultz’s judgment and cybersecurity record, noting she was the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee when it was hacked. A group of Democratic donors filed a lawsuit saying she and the DNC “breached the duties they owed to… members of the DNC Donor Class by failing to exercise reasonable care and implement adequate [cyber]security protocols..”

There’s more than bank fraud going on here.

By ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

July 29, 2017 4:00 AM
National Review

 

In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud.

 

Yet bank fraud was the stated charge on which Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport this week, just as he was trying to flee the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar. That is the same route taken by Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled the country, with three young daughters she yanked out of school, mega-luggage, and $12,400 in cash.

 

By then, the proceeds of the fraudulent $165,000 loan they’d gotten from the Congressional Federal Credit Union had been sent ahead. It was part of a $283,000 transfer that Awan managed to wire from Capitol Hill. He pulled it off — hilariously, if infuriatingly — by pretending to be his wife in a phone call with the credit union. Told that his proffered reason for the transfer (“funeral arrangements”) wouldn’t fly, “Mrs.” Awan promptly repurposed: Now “she” was “buying property.” Asking no more questions, the credit union wired the money . . . to Pakistan.

 

As you let all that sink in, consider this: Awan and his family cabal of fraudsters had access for years to the e-mails and other electronic files of members of the House’s Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees. It turns out they were accessing members’ computers without their knowledge, transferring files to remote servers, and stealing computer equipment — including hard drives that Awan & Co. smashed to bits of bytes before making tracks.

 

They were fired in February. All except Awan, that is. He continued in the employ of Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat, former DNC chairwoman, and Clinton crony. She kept him in place at the United States Congress right up until he was nabbed at the airport on Monday.

 

This is not about bank fraud. The Awan family swindles are plentiful, but they are just window-dressing. This appears to be a real conspiracy, aimed at undermining American national security.

 

At the time of his arrest, the 37-year-old Imran Awan had been working for Democrats as an information technologist for 13 years. He started out with Representative Gregory Meeks (D., N.Y.) in 2004. The next year, he landed on the staff of Wasserman Schultz, who had just been elected to the House.

 

Congressional-staff salaries are modest, in the $40,000 range. For some reason, Awan was paid about four times as much. He also managed to get his wife, Alvi, on the House payroll . . . then his brother, Abid Awan . . . then Abid’s wife, Natalia Sova. The youngest of the clan, Awan’s brother Jamal, came on board in 2014 — the then-20-year-old commanding an annual salary of $160,000.

 

A few of these arrangements appear to have been sinecures: While some Awans were rarely seen around the office, we now know they were engaged in extensive financial shenanigans away from the Capitol. Nevertheless, the Daily Caller’s Luke Rosiak, who has been all over this story, reports that, for their IT “work,” the Pakistani family has reeled in $4 million from U.S. taxpayers since 2009.

 

That’s just the “legit” dough. The family business evidently dabbles in procurement fraud, too. The Capitol Police and FBI are exploring widespread double-billing for computers, other communication devices, and related equipment.

 

Why were they paid so much for doing so little? Intriguing as it is, that’s a side issue. A more pressing question is: Why were they given access to highly sensitive government information? Ordinarily, that requires a security clearance, awarded only after a background check that peruses ties to foreign countries, associations with unsavory characters, and vulnerability to blackmail.

 

These characters could not possibly have qualified. Never mind access; it’s hard to fathom how they retained their jobs. The Daily Caller has also discovered that the family, which controlled several properties, was involved in various suspicious mortgage transfers. Abid Awan, while working “full-time” in Congress, ran a curious auto-retail business called “Cars International A” (yes, CIA), through which he was accused of stealing money and merchandise. In 2012, he discharged debts in bankruptcy (while scheming to keep his real-estate holdings). Congressional Democrats hired Abid despite his drunk-driving conviction a month before he started at the House, and they retained him despite his public-drunkenness arrest a month after. Beyond that, he and Imran both committed sundry vehicular offenses. In civil lawsuits, they are accused of life-insurance fraud.

 

Democrats now say that any access to sensitive information was “unauthorized.” But how hard could it have been to get “unauthorized” access when House Intelligence Committee Dems wanted their staffers to have unbounded access? In 2016, they wrote a letter to an appropriations subcommittee seeking funding so their staffers could obtain “Top Secret — Sensitive Compartmented Information” clearances. TS/SCI is the highest-level security classification. Awan family members were working for a number of the letter’s signatories.

 

Democratic members, of course, would not make such a request without coordination with leadership. Did I mention that the ranking member on the appropriations subcommittee to whom the letter was addressed was Debbie Wasserman Schultz?

 

Why has the investigation taken so long? Why so little enforcement action until this week? Why, most of all, were Wasserman Schultz and her fellow Democrats so indulgent of the Awans?

 

The probe began in late 2016. In short order, the Awans clearly knew they were hot numbers. They started arranging the fraudulent credit-union loan in December, and the $283,000 wire transfer occurred on January 18. In early February, House security services informed representatives that the Awans were suspects in a criminal investigation. At some point, investigators found stolen equipment stashed in the Rayburn House Office Building, including a laptop that appears to belong to Wasserman Schultz and that Imran was using. Although the Awans were banned from the Capitol computer network, not only did Wasserman Schultz keep Imran on staff for several additional months, but Meeks retained Alvi until February 28 — five days before she skedaddled to Lahore.

 

Strange thing about that: On March 5, the FBI (along with the Capitol Police) got to Dulles Airport in time to stop Alvi before she embarked. It was discovered that she was carrying $12,400 in cash. As I pointed out this week, it is a felony to export more than $10,000 in currency from the U.S. without filing a currency transportation report. It seems certain that Alvi did not file one: In connection with her husband’s arrest this week, the FBI submitted to the court a complaint affidavit that describes Alvi’s flight but makes no mention of a currency transportation report. Yet far from making an arrest, agents permitted her to board the plane and leave the country, notwithstanding their stated belief that she has no intention of returning.

 

Many congressional staffers are convinced that they’d long ago have been in handcuffs if they pulled what the Awans are suspected of. Nevertheless, no arrests were made when the scandal became public in February. For months, Imran has been strolling around the Capitol. In the interim, Wasserman Schultz has been battling investigators: demanding the return of her laptop, invoking a constitutional privilege (under the speech-and-debate clause) to impede agents from searching it, and threatening the Capitol Police with “consequences” if they don’t relent. Only last week, according to Fox News, did she finally signal willingness to drop objections to a scan of the laptop by federal investigators. Her stridency in obstructing the investigation has been jarring.

 

As evidence has mounted, the scores of Democrats for whom the Awans worked have expressed no alarm. Instead, we’ve heard slanderous suspicions that the investigation is a product of — all together now — “Islamophobia.” But Samina Gilani, the Awan brothers’ stepmother, begs to differ. Gilani complained to Virginia police that the Awans secretly bugged her home and then used the recordings to blackmail her. She averred in court documents that she was pressured to surrender cash she had stored in Pakistan. Imran claimed to be “very powerful” — so powerful he could order her family members kidnapped.

 

We don’t know if these allegations are true, but they are disturbing. The Awans have had the opportunity to acquire communications and other information that could prove embarrassing, or worse, especially for the pols who hired them. Did the swindling staffers compromise members of Congress? Does blackmail explain why were they able to go unscathed for so long?

 

And as for that sensitive information, did the Awans send American secrets, along with those hundreds of thousands of American dollars, to Pakistan?

 

This is no run-of-the-mill bank-fraud case.

Imran Awan Becomes Suspect In Seth Rich Murder Inquiry

 

By Baxter Dmitry

July 29, 2017

YourNewsWire.com

 

Imran Awan, the former DNC staffer who was arrested this week while trying to flee the United States, was with Seth Rich the night of his murder, according to new photographic evidence.

 

Police who originally investigated the murder suggested that Seth Rich might have been killed by someone he knew, due to the lack of struggle. The killer also took nothing from the victim, leaving behind his wallet containing $2000, watch and phone.

 

The photo, which directly links Imran Awan to Seth Rich, also links Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Awan’s former employer, to the former Seth Rich’s death.

 

Seth Rich with Imran Awan on the night of his murder.

 

Awan, who was kept on the DNC payroll for months and received several payments from Wasserman Schultz, was arrested earlier this week at Dulles airport. while trying to flee the United States and return to his native Pakistan.

 

Earlier this week WND reported that Seth Rich attended a party with Washington D.C. IT workers the night of his death, and that Rod Wheeler, the detective investigating the murder, was determined to learn more about who attended the party:

 

During the course of his investigation of Rich’s murder, Wheeler says learned something peculiar that he hadn’t heard before: Rich attended a party with numerous IT workers the night he was killed. After the party, Rich went to Lou’s City Bar, the last known location where he was seen before his murder.

 

Wheeler said he was determined to learn more about the IT party and who was in attendance, but all his questions have gone unanswered.

 

Seth attended that party, and I wanted to know who else was at that party. But I could never find out,” Wheeler said. “When I went back to ask other people who should have known who was at that party – these were people who were close to Seth – they told me, ‘You don’t need to know who was at that party because it had nothing to do with his death.’”

 

Uncovering more details about the attendees of the party is essential in the Rich homicide investigation, Wheeler contends.

 

He was at the party before he went to the bar. What you do in a murder investigation is you work backward. You want to trace the victim’s steps as far back as you can – who was that person around the day before? – as far back as you can,” he said.

 

What was interesting is when I am told as an investigator that I don’t need to talk to people who were at the party. It makes you wonder why.”

 

Now that we know Imran Awan was at the party, Rod Wheeler’s statement has become even more interesting.

 

Federal agents arrested Awan, the IT aide of Wasserman Schultz and the top suspect in a major Democratic hacking scandal, at Dulles Airport in Virginia as he tried to flee the U.S. and fly to the Mideast.

 

WND report: Awan’s arrest came just one day after reports emerged that the FBI had seized numerous “smashed hard drives” and other computer equipment from Awan’s previous residence. The former House IT staffer is suspected of stealing sensitive information from the office computers of numerous Democratic Party lawmakers and sending that data to a secret server.

 

Awan and his family members, all of whom worked as IT professionals for members of Congress, were banned from the House network Feb. 2, 2017, by the House Sergeant at Arms.

 

Despite the rapidly escalating scandal that potentially involves multiple federal crimes, Awan had been kept on the payroll of former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who circumvented the ban by having him “advise” her office.

 

In the wake of WikiLeaks posting damaging internal emails during the 2016 election, Wasserman Schultz resigned from her post as DNC chairwoman and blamed the scandal on an alleged hacking by Russians.

 

After the emails became public, Donna Brazile, who served as interim DNC chairwoman following Wasserman Schultz’s resignation, initially claimed the messages were fabricated. Then she alleged Russians stole the emails.

 

The FBI requested access to the DNC’s server to determine who was responsible for the breach. According to former FBI Director James Comey, the DNC refused to grant access to its server.

 

Awan reportedly possessed the password to the iPad Wasserman Schultz used when the DNC emails were provided to WikiLeaks.

 

Meanwhile, some have speculated that Rich – who worked in the voter analysis division of the DNC and was brutally murdered on July 10, 2016, on a street near his Washington home – was an inside source who leaked party insider emails to WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential race.

 

Well, now you have a possible suspect. Here’s the corrupt IT guy standing on the shoulders of Debbie Wasserman Schultz arrested at the airport trying to flee, charged with stealing hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of dollars,” said Rivera.

 

What if he was the source to WikiLeaks? He has all the passwords. He has all the information. This is a huge story … Everyone assumed it was the Russians who hacked the DNC and then gave WikiLeaks the emails,” said Rivera.

 

For a long time people thought that Seth Rich was the person who leaked information to Wikileaks. Seth Rich was then murdered in a mysterious ‘botched robbery’ in which nothing was stolen.

 

[Wikileaks’ Founder] Assange told me personally five times that it wasn’t a state or Russia,” said Hannity.

 

If you can prove disgruntled Democrats were the leakers and not the Russians, as Julian Assange has said … doesn’t that blow the whole thing out of the water?” said Hannity.

Is Deep State Crimes Unraveling?


John R. Houk

© July 28, 2017

 

Have Dems and their media allies been pulling the old sleight of hand by trying to pin a Russia-Russia-Russia collusion on President Trump?

 

Muse this: Even with Deep State cover-ups and Left Stream Media collusion with the cover-ups; there are felonious acts going on that involve the murder of Seth Rich, Dem IT crook Imran Awan, former Dem Party Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Crooked Hillary, Wikileaks, Nancy Pelosi and dear God who knows what else will be revealed.

 

All this is unravelling and you may not know it because the Left Stream Media is not informing their readers and listeners. The only wat – currently – to know is to watch Conservative media or anti-Left alternative news sources.

 

I am sure more info is forth coming and possibly even better sources than I have found. Here are a series of news articles that should allow you to construct at least a piece of the American Left Deep State conspiracy to end Constitutional government and the Trump Administration.

PRIVATE EYE: COPS BAILED FROM MEETING ON SETH RICH, RUSSIA PROBES

 

By ALICIA POWE

July 27, 2017

WND

 

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich (Photo: GoFundMe)

 

WASHINGTON – Detectives leading the Seth Rich murder investigation agreed to meet with Capitol Hill investigators to discuss evidence surrounding the alleged hacking of Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 presidential election, a private eye claims.

 

But the Metropolitan Police Department canceled its meeting with House investigators on the Hill just hours before it was scheduled to take place, according to former Washington, D.C., homicide detective Rod Wheeler.

 

Wheeler, who previously worked as the Rich family’s private investigator, told WND he had arranged the meeting between House investigators looking into the alleged Russian interference in the election and members of the MPD probing the unsolved murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich.

 

‘Why would they cancel?’

 

Incidentally, during one of Wheeler’s own discussions with House investigators probing the Russia case, he claims, they asked him: What do you know about the Awan brothers?

 

As WND reported, Imran Awan was arrested by federal agents Tuesday at Dulles Airport in Virginia as he attempted to flee to Pakistan. Awan, who has been charged with bank fraud, headed a group of at least five IT contractors working for dozens of House Democrats, including former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. He is suspected of much more, including the possible theft of sensitive information from the office computers of numerous Democratic Party lawmakers and sending that data to a secret server. Awan has somehow acquired the services of one of the top power attorneys in Washington, Chris Gowen, who is deeply connected to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

 

Wheeler claims a thorough investigation of the Democrats’ IT hacking scandal involving the Awan brothers may reveal more information about Rich’s murder, the 2016 email breach of the Democratic National Committee and the Awan family.

 

“I’ve been following the arrest of Awan – this is a guy whose name came up a couple of times in my investigation as someone that I should look at,” he said in a phone call to WND Wednesday. “I never really got a chance to look at them in the investigation – but what I did do – I met with the Capitol Hill investigators.

 

“I thought they should meet with D.C. police regarding the Seth Rich case because I thought they may find some correlation between the two things that they were doing,” he continued. “Hill investigators were very interested in meeting with D.C. police – they had never met with them pertaining to the Seth Rich case. The D.C. police detective was very interested in meeting with the Hill investigators.”

 

The MPD hadn’t returned WND’s requests for comment at the time of this report.

 

“The MPD detective didn’t give me any explanation as to why. He just said, ‘Rod, I am going to need to cancel that meeting,’” Wheeler explained. “I don’t know why they canceled. I do have some suspicions, but I don’t want to speculate. I am always hesitant to speculate because they hang you out to dry when you do.”

 

He added: “I’ve always wondered in the back of my mind, ‘Why would they cancel at the last minute?’”

 

Awan had access to DNC emails during WikiLeaks dump

 

As WND reported, federal agents arrested Awan, the IT aide of Wasserman Schultz and the top suspect in a major Democratic hacking scandal, at Dulles Airport in Virginia as he tried to flee the U.S. Tuesday and fly to the Mideast.

Awan’s arrest came just one day after reports emerged that the FBI had seized numerous “smashed hard drives” and other computer equipment from Awan’s previous residence. The former House IT staffer is suspected of stealing sensitive information from the office computers of numerous Democratic Party lawmakers and sending that data to a secret server.

 

Awan and his family members, all of whom worked as IT professionals for members of Congress, were banned from the House network Feb. 2, 2017, by the House Sergeant at Arms.

In an August 2016 interview, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange appeared to suggest that Rich was one of his sources.

On July 22, just 12 days after Rich’s death and days before the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks began publishing “44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments” from top DNC officials. Some of the emails showed DNC officials conspiring to sabotage Bernie Sanders’ candidacy and help secure the party nomination for Hillary Clinton.

 

WND has launched a GoFundMe campaign to get to the bottom of the Seth Rich murder. Help us find out what really happened to the DNC staffer!

 

Did Rich attend an IT party on night of his death?

 

During the course of his investigation of Rich’s mysterious murder, Wheeler claims, he learned something peculiar that he hadn’t heard before: Rich attended a party with numerous IT workers the night he was killed. After the party, Rich went to Lou’s City Bar, the last known location where he was seen before his murder.

 

Wheeler said he was determined to learn more about the IT party and who was in attendance, but all his questions have gone unanswered.

 

“Seth attended that party, and I wanted to know who else was at that party. But I could never find out,” Wheeler said. “When I went back to ask other people who should have known who was at that party – these were people who were close to Seth – they told me, ‘You don’t need to know who was at that party because it had nothing to do with his death.’”

 

Uncovering more details about the attendees of the party is essential in the Rich homicide investigation, Wheeler contends.

 

“He was at the party before he went to the bar. What you do in a murder investigation is you work backward. You want to trace the victim’s steps as far back as you can – who was that person around the day before? – as far back as you can,” he said. “What was interesting is when I am told as an investigator that I don’t need to talk to people who were at the party. It makes you wonder why.”

 

DNC’s Brazile asked cops why Wheeler was ‘snooping’ in Rich case

 

Wheeler told WND in May that the MPD withheld information from him pertaining to Rich’s murder after former DNC interim chairwoman Donna Brazile called police to ask why investigators were “snooping” into Rich’s slaying.

 

A manager at Lou’s City Bar told WND that police never interviewed the bar’s staff or requested evidence, such as footage from security cameras. And police also never questioned Rich’s DNC co-workers.

 

As WND has reported, Jack Burkman, head of a team of private investigators in D.C. working to find Rich’s killers, claimed the MPD was instructed by Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser for political reasons to stop investigating Rich’s murder. The MPD and the mayor’s office disputed Burkman’s allegations.

 

The total reward for solving Rich’s murder currently stands at approximately a half-million dollars. Yet, the DNC has offered no reward for information leading to the arrest of the murderer of its own young staffer. Instead, the DNC honored its murdered employee by dedicating a bike rack outside its headquarters to Rich’s memory.

 

The Rich family’s attitude toward Wheeler, he claimed, changed dramatically after Democratic political crisis consultant Brad Bauman became their spokesman. Rich’s family threatened legal action against Wheeler in May after he told a Fox affiliate that he believed police were covering up details about the crime. An attorney representing the family sent Wheeler a cease-and-desist letter on May 19.

 

Wheeler said he’s uncertain when he’ll be allowed to reveal his report on Rich’s murder, but he is perplexed that Rich’s family has never expressed interest in the report’s findings.

 

“The cease-and-desist order does not have an expiration date. I don’t know if it’s set up for life or what,” he said. “The family has never asked for my final report. Why not? That’s interesting. Why wouldn’t they ask their investigator, ‘Give us a copy of the report and let us see what’s in it’?”

Unearthed email reportedly ties Nancy Pelosi to Wasserman Schultz’s arrested IT aide

 

By Carmine Sabia 

July 27, 2017 

BizPac Review

 

The recently arrested IT aide to former DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz may have interacted with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

 

Imran Awan, who worked for Wasserman Schultz as an IT aide, was arrested on Tuesday while attempting to flee to Pakistan, after wiring $283,000 to the nation from the Congressional Federal Credit Union.

 

His wife, also a Dem staffer who raked in $168,300 tax payer dollars through the most recent House period, fled to Pakistan before him with $12,000 in cash.

 

As BPR recently reported:

 

Awan began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005. Shortly afterward, several of his relatives mysteriously appeared on the payroll of other Democrats, even though they were rarely seen at work.

 

These four relatives collected a total of $4 million in salaries (funded by U.S. taxpayers) since 2009.

 

The staffers have been involved in an ongoing probe chronicled by BizPac Review thanks to the investigative work by the Daily Caller’s investigative team.

 

Now it appears Awan may have had access to Pelosi’s iPad, according to an email obtained by WikiLeaks.

 

WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange sent a reminder of the email that showed Pelosi’s iPad likely made it into his hands for some unknown reason.

It’s no wonder that Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera speculated that Awan might be the leaker of DNC emails to Wikileaks.

Former DNC Chair Is Sweating Bullets After This Arrest

 

Posted by otwadmin

Off The Wire

 

Debbie Wasserman Schultz – Off The Wire

 

Debbie Wasserman Schultz has a lot to answer for.

 

While the head of the Democratic National Committee, she disgraced the position by colluding against Bernie Sanders.

 

Now one of her top aides, already under investigation for congressional security breaches, was arrested in conjunction with fraud charges, and the questions are only beginning.

 

Imran Awan, Wasserman Schultz’s IT aide for over a decade, was arrested while trying to flee to Pakistan.

 

From TruthRevolt.org:

 

A LONGTIME IT AIDE TO FORMER DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE CHAIRWOMAN DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ, WAS ARRESTED AT WASHINGTON, D.C.’S DULLES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MONDAY NIGHT AS HE WAS “TRYING TO LEAVE THE COUNTRY.”

 

 

THE BLAZE REPORTS THAT FEDERAL AGENTS AND THE U.S. CAPITOL POLICE ARRESTED PAKISTANI-BORN IMRAN AWAN AND CHARGED HIM WITH “MULTIPLE COUNTS OF BANK FRAUD” STEMMING FROM THE INVESTIGATION OF AN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROCUREMENT SCANDAL IN THE U.S. HOUSE.

 

The Blaze has the background:

 

AWAN HAS BEEN THE LEAD SUSPECT IN AN ONGOING CRIMINAL PROBE INTO SECURITY BREACHES WITHIN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES THAT WAS LAUNCHED ON FEB. 2. HE ALLEGEDLY DOUBLED CHARGED THE U.S. HOUSE FOR IT EQUIPMENT AND MAY HAVE EXPOSED SENSITIVE HOUSE MEMBERS’ INFORMATION ONLINE. ACCORDING TO PREVIOUS REPORTS, WASSERMAN SCHULTZ KEPT AWAN ON HER PAYROLL, EVEN  THOUGH HE HAD BEEN BANNED FROM HOUSE SERVERS BY CAPITOL HILL SECURITY.

 

[…]

 

AWAN, WHO WAS HIRED IN 2005, WAS REPORTEDLY IN POSSESSION OF AN IPAD USED BY THEN-DNC CHAIR WASSERMAN SCHULTZ, A FLORIDA REPRESENTATIVE, AROUND THE TIME THAT DNC EMAILS WERE LEAKED TO WIKILEAKS.

 

AWAN, THREE MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY, AND CLOSE FRIEND RAO ABBAS WERE HOUSE IT WORKERS AND ARE ACCUSED OF STEALING EQUIPMENT FROM DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS’ OFFICES WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND COMMITTING POTENTIALLY ILLEGAL VIOLATIONS ON THE HOUSE IT NETWORK, INCLUDING LEAKING SENSITIVE INFORMATION STORED WITHIN THE SERVERS AND PERSONAL DEVICES OF HOUSE MEMBERS.

 

THE AWAN FAMILY — AS WELL AS FRIENDS — WERE ALLEGED TO HAVE OWED MONEY TO THE TERRORIST GROUP HEZBOLLAH.

 

[…]

 

THE AWANS WORKED IN 32 HOUSE MEMBER OFFICES, ALL DEMOCRATS, INCLUDING THE OFFICE OF WASSERMAN SCHULTZ AND MEMBERS OF THE HOMELAND SECURITY COMMITTEE, THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEE, AND THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE. THE TECH TEAM ALSO WORKED IN THE OFFICE OF THE HOUSE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS.

 

Despite the email hacks that uncovered top Democrats’ misconduct and an ongoing, months-long federal probe that barred Awan from accessing congressional servers, Wasserman Schultz curiously kept him on the payroll until after his arrest.

 

Perhaps Wasserman Schultz is incredibly forgiving and truly values Awan’s counsel, or perhaps he had her over a barrel. Evidence suggests the latter is more likely.

 

The article continues:

 

HOUSE AUTHORITIES BEGAN INVESTIGATING THE AWAN FAMILY DURING THEIR SEARCH FOR A SECRET SERVER THAT WAS FUNNELING CONGRESSIONAL DATA OFF-SITE. CAPITOL POLICE ORDERED AWAN TO STAY AWAY FROM HOUSE SERVERS DURING THE INVESTIGATION, BUT SCHULTZ KEPT HIM ON IN AN “ADVISORY POSITION,” ALLOWING HIM TO WORK REMOTELY.

 

AFTER AN INVESTIGATION WAS LAUNCHED, AWAN MOVED SUDDENLY FROM HIS VIRGINIA RENTAL HOME, AND THE NEW TENANT, A MARINE CORPS VET, REPORTED THAT “WIRELESS ROUTERS, HARD DRIVES THAT LOOK LIKE THEY TRIED TO DESTROY [SIC], LAPTOPS, [AND] A LOT OF BRAND NEW EXPENSIVE TONER” WERE LEFT BEHIND IN THE GARAGE AFTER AWAN’S DEPARTURE. “THEY LEFT IN A HUGE HURRY. IT LOOKS LIKE GOVERNMENT-ISSUED EQUIPMENT. WE TURNED THAT STUFF OVER.”

 

THE FBI WERE REPORTEDLY SEIZED HARD DRIVES FROM AWAN’S HOME LAST SUNDAY. THE DAILY CALLER REPORTED THAT AN ANONYMOUS SOURCE IN CONGRESS CONFIRMED THAT THE FBI HAS JOINED A 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.”

 

“THE AWANS HAD [MEMBERS] IN THEIR POCKET,” ONE IT STAFFER TOLD THE DC. “THERE ARE A LOT OF MEMBERS WHO COULD GO DOWN OVER THIS.”

 

It’s no surprise that just last week Wasserman Schultz began “negotiating” with Capitol Police in possession of her computer; she’s trying to get ahead of what could be a massive scandal.

 

If the allegations against Awan and his family are true, he certainly doesn’t seem like the type to carry the water for culpable Democrats, which means he’s likely to cut a deal with investigators.

 

The stories he can tell should have House Democrats quaking in fear.

Democrat Leadership is Involved in a Massive Criminal Cover-Up – Mainstream Media Silent

 

By Onan Coca

July 27, 2017

Consitution.com

 

Former Democrat National Committee chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) may be in a world of trouble.

 

Her former IT team has long been under suspicion for a series of very serious crimes. However, Schultz ran interference for her IT team for months and even fought to keep investigators from gathering evidence of their crimes.

 

When confronted on her behavior Schultz dissembled and continued to make it harder for everyone to do their jobs.

 

Thankfully, Imran Awan, the man who Schultz worked so hard to protect made one too many mistakes and was caught attempting to flee the country and return home to Pakistan.

 

Now, Geraldo Rivera wonders if we may have finally caught the real leaker of the DNC and Clinton campaign emails.

 

“Well, now you have a possible suspect. Here’s the corrupt IT guy standing on the shoulders of Debbie Wasserman Schultz arrested at the airport trying to flee, charged with stealing hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of dollars.”

Posted by Republican State Committee

Published on Jul 25, 2017

 

Sadly, even though Awan was captured several days ago and the crimes against him are deadly serious, the liberal media has had nothing to say about the story.

 

The news is just getting noticed by some of the network giants, but BizPac Review has been chronicling this unbelievable story for months, thanks to the exceptional investigative reporting of the Daily Caller News Foundation.

 

As of this writing — more than 3 days after the latest news broke — liberal media outlets CNN, the Washington Post, and the New York Times — STILL have not covered the stunning developments. Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh is disgusted that the mainstream media are apparently ignoring this story simply because it makes Democrats look bad.

 

Here’s what’s happening: Imran Awan, the former IT employee of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was arrested at Washington Dulles Airport on Monday trying to flee the country on a flight to Pakistan after wiring $283,000 to the country. On July 23, the FBI had seized several smashed hard drives from Imran’s home.

 

Awan’s wife had already fled the country in March 2017 after authorities found $12,000 in cash hidden in her suitcase at the airport.

 

In 2005 Awan got himself a job with Debbie Wasserman Schultz. In the months following, several of Awan’s family members got jobs with other Democrat legislators even though it seems they didn’t actually do any work for them.

 

In fact, Awan made some $ 2 Million during his 13 years working for Debbie Wassreman Schultz. The other four members of the Awan family earned some $4 million dollars from the Democrat Party (paid by the American taxpayers) between 2009 and 2016. Think about that number. Four “IT personnel” earned $4 Million over the course of 7 years. That’s a nice salary for the “IT guys.”

 

During the same period Awan found his way onto the FBI’s radar after making some shady mortgage deals.

While there is much evidence that the Awan’s financial deals were indeed criminal, there was a much more worrisome problem.

 

As WND reports Imran Awan, “is suspected of much more, including the possible theft of sensitive information from the office computers of numerous Democratic Party lawmakers and sending that data to a secret server. It is a major scandal almost completely ignored by the establishment media.”

 

If the government’s suspicions are warranted the data breach could be incredibly massive. Awan led a team of at least 4 or 5 IT staffers who worked for dozens of House Democrats and the government believes that they may have stolen crucial intelligence from all of those Democrats over the course of more than a decade.

 

Meanwhile, Debbie Wasserman Schultz kept Awan on her payroll throughout the investigation and even ran interference for him with investigators. She was seen threatening Washington, D.C. police investigators, refused to cooperate with federal investigators, and even harassed the investigators who were trying to protect our nation.

 

So why is Schultz still working in Congress?

Clintons and Pelosi Now Caught Up in Democrat Muslim IT Spy Scandal

 

By TIM BROWN

JULY 27, 2017

Freedom Outpost

 

After engaging in numerous security violations over the years, former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz admitted to it, which then led to an investigation into her information technology (IT).  Following the FBI seizing several smashed hard drives from his home, Imran Awan was arrested while he tried to flee the country to Qatar and then Pakistan after wiring $283,000 from the Congressional Federal Credit Union to that country.  Now, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D) and both Bill and Hillary Clinton are coming into the mix of the Muslim IT spy scandal.

 

The Daily Caller reports“Chris Gowen, Imran Awan’s lawyer, is a long-time campaigner for former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a member of an attorney team that brought a fraudulent lawsuit against energy giant Chevron.”

 

Apparently, the Democrats have paid at least $4 million since 2009 into this Muslim IT spy ring called the Awan group.

 

Imran Awan had been under investigation for stealing classified intel, potentially blackmailing house members and various other data breaches.

 

Among those in political office who employed the services of the Awans are at least 23 current and former Democrats in Congress.  Here’s the list:

 

  • Andre Carson

 

  • Luis Gutierrez

 

  • Jim Himes

 

  • Terri Sewell

 

  • Jackie Speier

 

  • Mike Quigley

 

  • Eric Swalwell

 

  • Patrick Murphy

 

  • Debbie Wasserman Schultz

 

  • Joaquini Castro

 

  • Lois Frankel

 

  • Ted Lieu

 

  • Robin Kelly

 

  • Tammy Duckworth

 

  • Mark Takano

 

  • John Sarbanes

 

  • Diana DeGette

 

  • Cedric Richmond

 

  • Charlie Crist

 

  • Jacky Rosen

 

  • Sandy Levin

 

  • Karen Bass

 

  • Marcia Fudge

 

Of course, you probably recognize many of these names as the usual suspects when it comes to corruption and treason in the Democrat Party.

 

Following Awan’s arrest this week, Wikileaks’s Julian Assange pointed out the link between Awan and Nancy Pelosi by pointing to a May 2016 email.  Here’s the text.

Note that Awan had access to Pelosi’s iPad, as well.

 

What all do these treasonous Democrats know and how are they aiding these Muslim spies?  Who knows.  They could just be completely ignorant and in it for political gain or money or power… or they could know exactly what they are doing.

 

Either way, it looks as if this IT scandal goes all the way to the top in the DNC.

 

Instead of the media parroting the fake news narrative about Russian collusion, they should be reporting on this story as it is not only documented, but has great ramifications for national security.  We can safely say the mainstream media are colluding with the enemies of America.  They are not the press.  They are the propaganda machine.

No Surprise! Comey Swiped Classified Docs


John R. Houk

© July 12, 2017

 

If you are a Conservative voter, you are fully aware the Dems – at least the leadership – are a bunch bald-faced liars. Rather than go through the list of Dem bald-faced liars – past and present, let’s look at one Dem liar in particular: JAMES COMEY.

 

Former FBI Director (FIRED) Comey was allegedly appointed as a non-political government official to protect and enforce the rule of law in America.

 

Consider who appointed Comey. That would be the most treasonous former President Obama – A DEM.

 

Consider who Comey said should not be indicted after actually listing numerous felonious crimes that the former Director claimed were committed unintentionally; ergo give her a pass – CROOKED HILLARY CLINTON A DEM.

 

Since when did Dems consider unintentional crimes not able to be prosecuted? Can you say Scooter Libby? OR, when did Dems care about who committed crimes under ignorance or idiocy: Crooked Hillary and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

 

NOW it has been revealed that James Comey can be added to the ill-reputed Dems. Not only did Comey take government property to try to malign President Trump, Comey also illegally removed classified documents when he was fired.

 

Will he be prosecuted?

More than half of Comey’s Trump memos contain classified info, officials say

Disgruntled James Comey leaked classified info, according to multiple sources. (Image: Twitter)

 

When you set out on a journey of petty revenge, you should start by digging two graves: Your enemy’s and your own.

 

Disgruntled fired FBI director James Comey should’ve heeded this warning before having classified info leaked to the left-wing media in a bid to take down President Donald Trump.

 

All it did was reveal Comey — an Obama appointee — to be a vindictive traitor who should never have been trusted with national security secrets.

 

In June, Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he had a friend leak his personal memos to the New York Times shortly after being fired by Trump in May. At the time, Comey testified that he leaked the documents to defend his reputation after Trump dissed him on Twitter.

 

Comey also claimed that the memos he wrote as FBI director detailing his private conversations with the president of the United States did not contain any classified information and were his personal property. Say what?

 

Officials who have seen the Comey memos say that is false, and that more than half the memos contained secret, classified information.

 

Four of the seven memos Comey wrote chronicling his conversations with President Trump contained classified intel, officials told The Hill. The documents were marked by the FBI as containing information classified as both “confidential” and “secret,” the sources said.

 

Hillary colluded with Russia AND China, but media obsess over Trump hoax

 

 

This stunning revelation suggests James Comey was lying when he testified under oath. It also undercuts his hypocritical criticism of Hillary Clinton, whom he accused of mishandling classified intel.

 

It’s unclear how all this is going to shake out, but accusations of treason and perjury have been bandied about concerning Comey’s self-serving, reckless behavior.

 

This development could also jeopardize James Comey’s ability to profit from his leaks. In June, top New York City publishing houses aggressively courted Comey to publish his memos in the hopes that they trash President Trump.

 

One publishing firm even offered $10 million for the memos, and there was talk of a movie being made to cast Comey as a heroic anti-Trump martyr.

 

Now, instead of cashing in, blabbermouth Comey may face indictments. Or at least a federal investigation. Nice going, Jimmy!

Dem Canova Champions Truth about Rich Murder


John R. Houk

© June 29, 2017

 

It is my belief that Seth Rich’s murder is significant enough to keep following. Rich’s murder suspiciously occurred after he was suspected as being the secret whistleblower that released DNC emails to Wikileaks (NOT the Russia Fake News) that demonstrated inherent Democratic Party corruption ensuring Crooked Hillary won the Dem nomination over Bernie Sanders.

Some insights about Seth Rich. He was a Bernie supporter which means he was probably even more Marxist in ideology than Crooked Hillary. That which makes Rich’s murder significant is the reputation of the Clintons in destroying lives that threaten the Clinton image personally and legally.

 

Hence, when I run into a story about Seth Rich that adds more narrative to the young man’s murder is something I run with. Alicia Powe writing for WND is going with a story about Tim Canova running against Debbie Wasserman Schultz within the Dem Party for her District nomination for Congress.

 

The significance of the Canova-dethrone run against Schultz is that she was exposed as being front and center in rigging the Crooked Hillary nomination. AND Canova is focusing on the lack of a proper police investigation by the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) of Seth Rich’s murder.

 

If you primarily read, listen or watch Mainstream Media (MSM); you may not be aware the MPD is pushing the theory that Rich met his demise in a botched street robbery that had no witnesses and nothing – as in no available valuables whatsoever – was taken. AND Seth Rich was taken alive to a hospital reportedly on the road to recovery yet died mysteriously in the hospital bed.

 

Does this sound like a botched robbery to you?

 

In full disclosure, Canova like murder victim Seth Rich was a Bernie Sanders supporter. Meaning again he is another Dem that will lean way to the Left of Crooked Hillary or Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Ergo, if Canova overcomes the Leftist Dem Establishment and defeats Schultz, it will still not be good for America for another Marxist-Socialist to beat out the Republican nominee in the same Florida District.

 

NEVERTHELESS, any focus on exposing the truth behind Seth Rich’s murder will be a good thing.

DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ CHALLENGER: PROBE SETH RICH MURDER

‘I know millions of people … just want to know what happened in this investigation’

 

By ALICIA POWE

June 28, 2017

WND

 

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich

 

WASHINGTON – Any American who cares about the rule of law should be demanding the truth about the mysterious murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, says Tim Canova, a Democratic law professor who is challenging former DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz for her congressional seat in 2018.

 

Canova has been slammed by left-leaning media outlets for calling attention to the unusual circumstances surrounding the July 10, 2016, murder of Rich, the DNC voter-expansion data director who is rumored to have leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

 

“There should be a thorough investigation of what happened,” Canova told WND. “I know millions of people are asking the same question – they just want to know what happened in this investigation. That’s really all I am guilty of, making that plea for a thorough transparent investigation.”

 

He continued: “Whether we are talking about Seth Rich or anyone else, if you believe in the rule of law, you should want to apprehend people who commit these types of crimes, and I say that without speculating about who did it. I am grateful [WND] is looking into it.”

Canova’s 2018 opponent, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., served as DNC chairwoman until emails were made public by WikiLeaks revealing that under her leadership the DNC collaborated to undermine Bernie Sanders’ campaign.

Unsolved murder of Seth Rich

 

As WND has reported, Rich, 27, had accepted a position with Hillary Clinton’s campaign just before his death. He was murdered in Washington, D.C., near his apartment in an affluent neighborhood. Rich was shot twice in the back with a handgun, and his wallet, credit cards, watch and phone were left in his possession. The Metropolitan Police Department has described the murder as a “botched robbery.”

 

Private investigators have claimed there is evidence Rich was the source WikiLeaks used to obtain thousands of Democratic National Committee emails released on the eve of the party’s presidential nominating convention last July. The emails, indicating the party was manipulating the primary race in favor of Hillary Clinton, led to the resignation of Wasserman Schultz. On July 22, just 12 days after Rich’s death and days before the Democratic Party Convention in Philadelphia, WikiLeaks released 20,000 emails from DNC officials.

 

WND has launched a GoFundMe campaign to get to the bottom of the Seth Rich murder. Help us find out what really happened to the DNC staffer!

 

Former detective Rod Wheeler

 

Also as WND has reported, former detective Rod Wheeler was initially hired by Rich’s parents through a third party to find their son’s killer. Wheeler alleges former interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazille contacted the Metropolitan Police Department demanding to know why he was “snooping” after Wheeler began investigating Rich’s murder. As a result, he said, law-enforcement authorities are now refusing to provide him with more details about the case.

 

Wheeler and another source also told WND that the family’s spokesman, Brad Bauman – a Democratic political crisis consultant – was “assigned” to the family by the DNC. Bauman denies the DNC hired him to represent the Rich family, calling the claim “patently 100 percent false.”

 

As WND reported, the total reward for solving Rich’s murder currently stands at approximately a half-million dollars. However, the DNC has offered no reward for information leading to the arrest of the murderer of its own young staffer. Instead, the DNC honored its murdered employee by dedicating a bike rack outside its headquarters to Rich’s memory.

 

Watch as WND asks locals for their thoughts on Seth Rich murder and investigation:

 

Youtube Version of WND Video: D.C. Locals Asked About Seth Rich Murder Investigation

WND reporter, Alicia Powe, interviews D.C. locals about the Seth Rich murder investigation. To learn more on this story, read the article: http://www.wnd.com/2017/06/seth-richs-neighbors-sound-off-on-murder-mystery/

Media, critics pounce with ‘conspiracy’ label

 

Establishment media have ignored recent revelations concerning Rich’s case. The little coverage of the investigation has been devoted to dismissing speculation surrounding Rich’s murder as “conspiracy.” And Canova has been ridiculed for speaking out about the unsolved crime.

 

In a DailyKos article headlined, “Democrat pushing hateful Seth Rich conspiracy theory to run against Wasserman Schultz again,” Jeff Singer wrote, “Rich’s parents have repeatedly begged people to stop dragging their son through the mud to advance their own agenda, and we can only hope that Canova will listen and stop spreading these lies.”

 

After weighing in on social media about the Seth Rich murder mystery, Canova quickly became the target of widespread criticism.

 

 

 

“I Facebook live-streamed walking past his murder scene. I happened to be in Washington at the time,” Canova told WND. “People objected. They thought I was trying to use his murder for political reasons, that I was disregarding the feelings of Seth Rich’s family. So I took down the video. It’s others, my opponents, who want to politicize the Seth Rich murder.”

 

He continued: “I think the criminal justice system has to be able to work without political interference. I cross my fingers and hope that the Seth Rich family and others are pushing for a complete investigation.”

Why do mainstream and left-leaning media outlets continue to berate those who suspect Rich’s murder wasn’t robbery related, labeling them as “conspiracy theorists”?

 

“The mainstream media, they are looking to divide the progressive left,” Canova said. “They are looking to demonize and discredit. They try to discredit, and they engage in their own conspiracy theorizing. I’m very unconcerned with what the mainstream media are saying on any given day at this point. I am reaching the voters, where the voters live and where the voters work, and we are talking to the about real issues, the issues they care about.

 

“Ordinary people,” he continued, “don’t really give a damn about what the mainstream media are saying. There is a reason why the media are so low in digits in approval ratings. They are lower than Congress at this point.”

 

WND has launched a GoFundMe campaign to get to the bottom of the Seth Rich murder. You can personally help us get to the truth of what really happened.

 

‘My politics were very aligned with Sanders’

 

Canova told WND he has been a longtime supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

 

“In 2011, I was appointed by Sen. Bernie Sanders to a select advisory committee on reforming the Federal Reserve, so for years I had been doing a lot of work on the Federal Reserve and other financial institutions like the International Monetary Fund,” he said. “My politics were very aligned with Sanders.”

 

Sanders, then a presidential candidate, endorsed Canova, stating in May 2016 that “[Canova’s] views are much closer to mine than to Wasserman Schultz’s.”

 

Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., debate in 2016

 

After Canova became outspoken about Seth Rich’s unsolved murder, Sanders declined to endorse the law professor in his second Democratic bid for the Florida seat.

 

Sanders told the Miami Herald: “I have no idea about Tim Canova, I honestly don’t. I know nothing about Tim Canova.”

 

Leading conservatives, including Fox News host Sean Hannity and best-selling author Ann Coulter, argue that Democrats’ ongoing probe of the Trump administration’s alleged collusion with Russia, supposedly to rig the election by hacking DNC emails, will be derailed completely if Rich is proven to have leaked the DNC emails.

 

Canova concurs with that assessment, arguing that Democrats are hurting themselves by focusing on Russia.

 

“I am not one to think that the Russian focus is a productive one. I think it a very counterproductive one for the Democratic Party,” he said. “A lot of folks want to see more hard evidence if that’s what happened. Even taking their narrative as the truth, if the Russians can hack into our election systems, anyone can hack into our election system. And we need to focus a lot on election integrity.”

 

He continued: “I don’t have the time to focus on any of this Russia stuff. I am running for office, and I am focused on constituents, who are every day [working to] making ends meet, and worried out of their minds about their job prospects, the job prospects of their children, the health care for their aging parents. These are real issues that real people care about.”

 

DNC and Wasserman Schultz sued for election ‘rigging’

 

As WND reported, the DNC and Wasserman Schultz are currently facing a class-action lawsuit filed by attorneys Elizabeth and Jared Beck on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters who claim they sought to rig the election.

 

On June 13, lawyers and plaintiffs suing the DNC told the U.S. District Court in Florida that they’re being harassed with threatening messages and “freaky” encounters and they fear for their safety – particularly in the wake of the mysterious and unsolved murder of Rich – but the court denied their request for protection.

 

On June 1, the Becks filed a motion in court claiming they received a voice-modulated phone call from a number matching Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ office.

 

Elizabeth Beck told WND someone called her office using a voice-changing device and inquiring about the DNC lawsuit. She said this phone number, belonging to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Aventura, Florida, office, popped up on the phone’s caller ID (Photo: Beck)

 

One of the plaintiffs, Angela Monson, claimed in an affidavit to have awakened to her porch door open. She said both of her computers had been moved and showed evidence of tampering.

 

Similarly, Canova, who lost his 2016 Democratic primary bid against Wasserman Schultz, alleged June 17 in a now-deleted tweet that his computer was hacked and an electrical surge had fried both of his computers, after he announced an official rematch against her.

 

Canova Tweet: Tonight I announced my 2018 candidacy

 

“Announced last night 8 p.m. run vs. @DWSTweets again,” Canova wrote, implying the disgraced former DNC chair may have been linked to the alleged attack. “At 2 a.m. my computer was attacked & surge protector fried. Same happened last campaign.”

 

Wasserman Schultz ‘put finger on the scale … to clear field for Hillary

 

As a longtime Sanders supporter and an outspoken advocate of election integrity, Canova told WND he was infuriated by the foul play that took place within the Democratic Party during its primary.

 

“It became increasingly clear that as chair of the DNC, [Wasserman Schultz] was putting her fingers on the scale to try to undermine the Sanders campaign and to clear the field for Hillary Clinton,” he said. “That aggravated me. I had already been a Bernie Sanders supporter from early on when he got in the race. As it became increasingly clear that Wasserman Schultz wasn’t just [failing to represent] her constituents but was really doing an atrocious job as DNC chair, undermining democracy within the Democratic Party, it made the urgency of challenging her that much more acute.”

 

Canova said Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s record of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from corporations, while doing nothing to help her constituents, compelled his candidacy.

 

“During the course of her career, she had taken millions of dollars from big Wall Street banks, fossil fuels and other big corporate interests.

 

“She took money from private prison corporations, and was pushing for a private prison in our district. Their district has a lot of problems, especially economic problems. Low income, out of work, under employed – and it’s never been on her agenda. It’s been a very corporate agenda,” he explained. “So we started to look around for someone who would challenge her. No one else would, and I did. I am continuing to for those reasons. I think our district needs representation.”

 

Canova said he’s disappointed not only in Wasserman Schultz, but in the entire Democratic establishment.

 

“When I ran against Wasserman Schultz, I was running against the entire establishment, the entire time,” he said. “My beef is not just a personal one with Wasserman Schultz. My campaign is not just about replacing a single congresswoman but the party’s politics. [I’m] hoping it’s … not too late to reform this party.”

 

Canova said he believes he has a better chance of winning the primary in 2018 now that Hillary Clinton is not running as the party’s nominee for president.

 

To ensure Democratic Party establishment doesn’t rig the election against him, as it’s accused of doing to Sanders, Canova said he plans to pay for a recount, “no matter the election outcome.”

 

“Certainly, millions of Americans have concerns about the fairness of elections and the way the ballots are counted,” he said. “Election integrity is an enormous issue for my campaign. Really, it should be an enormous issue nationwide right now.”

 

Canova argued that Wasserman Schultz is viewed as a liability, even among party insiders, after being forced to resign as DNC chair.

 

“This time, I am in early,” he said. “This time, she is not going to be in a Clinton White House or cabinet. And I am not so sure she can count on the same level of support even from the establishment. Nobody wants to be seen standing next to her and campaigning for her. It’s a different race.”
