Congressional Computer Admins In Criminal Probe Owed Money To Hezbollah-Connected Fugitive
The Daily Caller ^ | February 21, 2017 | By Luke Rosiak

Posted on 02/22/2017 12:06:27 AM PST by Brad from Tennessee

Congressional aides suspected of criminally misusing their access to House computer systems owed $100,000 to an Iraqi politician who is wanted by U.S. authorities and has been linked to Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Middle Eastern terrorist outfit.

Imran Awan and four of his relatives were employed as information technology (IT) aides by dozens of House Democrats, including members of the intelligence, foreign affairs and homeland security committees. The aides’ administrator-level IT access was terminated earlier this month amid a criminal probe by U.S. Capitol Police of a suspected security breach, including an off-site server housing congressional data.

The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has reported that while working for Congress, the Pakistani brothers controlled a limited liability corporation called Cars International A (CIA), a car dealership with odd finances, which took–and was unable to repay–a $100,000 loan from Dr. Ali Al-Attar.

Philip Giraldi, a former CIA officer, wrote that Attar “was observed in Beirut, Lebanon conversing with a Hezbollah official” in 2012–shortly after the loan was made. Attar has also been accused of helping provoke the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq as a leader of Iraqi dissidents opposed to Saddam Hussein. . .

That’s an extremely tenuous and poorly substantiated “connection”.

While I have no doubt that these are enemy spies, making headlines of what are essentially unsubstantiated rumors is gossip-mongering, not journalism.

I’m just glad somebody is keeping this story alive. The establishment press hasn’t printed one word about this scandal.

Got a link to its coverage on Fox News?

The only original reporting I’ve seen on the Awan ring has been The Daily caller and Politico.

The Awan brothers worked for members including Andre Carson of Indiana, one of two Muslims in Congress and a member of the ultra-sensitive intelligence committee.


What could go wrong.

While the DNC/MSM has been pounding away on the fake Russian election hack, with no proof, we have foreign muslim operatives tunneling into sensitive government positions.

Extremely disturbing is that the Muslim gang (Imram here) appeared to be monitoring the Clintons.

It's odd that a Capitol Hill staffer gets that close to a bigshot Clinton.

Perhaps the Muslim Brothers gave the Clintons data off the Democrats' Congressional computers?

Perhaps the Clintons had need for the data coming off the DNC computers?

Much ado about what the President is trying to do is partially to cover for this security breach.

[Can a good Muslim borrow money?]

Yes but a good Muslim cannot loan money at interest. This removes the incentive for loaning money which is one more impediment to progress built into Islamic law.

Let me guess...

Could Philip Giraldi be yet another associate of Ray McGovern, a Lyndon LaRouchie associated with the Joe Wilson/Valerie Plame Niger yellowcake affair?
