Skip to comments.Awan Brothers Scandal Creates Fears About Scope Of Data Leak
Posted on 06/10/2017 2:36:58 PM PDT by ForYourChildren
Over the past few months, the story of the Awan brothers has been largely ignored by mainstream media. However, the brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan are at the center of a criminal investigation by U.S. Capital Hill Police. The Awan brothers were Pakistani IT specialists, whom worked for more than 30 house and senate democrats, as well as Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The substantial scandal has raised questions about who may have been passed data which the Awans had access to, given Pakistans history of collaborating with a number of foreign countries who have demonstrated past willingness to influence U.S. politics.
Imran was first employed in 2004 by former Democrat Rep. Robert Wexler (FL) as an information technology director, before he began working in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultzs office in 2005.
The family was paid extremely well, with Imran Awan being paid nearly $2 million working as an IT support staffer for House Democrats since 2004. Abid Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were each paid more than $1 million working for House Democrats. In total, since 2003, the family has collected nearly $5 million.
The staffers services were so important to congressional members, that on March 22, 2016, eight democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence issued a letter, requesting that their staffers be granted access to Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI). Of those that signed the letter were representatives Jackie Speier (CA) and Andre Carson (IN), the second Muslim in Congress, both of whom employed the Awan brothers.
The brothers were also employed by members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, such as: Jackie Speier (D-CA), Andre Carson (D-IN), Joaquín Castro (D-TX), Lois Frankel (D-FL), Robin Kelly (D-IL), and Ted Lieu (D-CA). Lieu has since openly called for leaks by members of President Trumps administration despite the fact that he may until recently have been under surveillance by a foreign entity.
One bombshell that has been all but ignored by the main stream media is that Imran Awan had access to Debbie Wasserman Schultzs iPad password, meaning that the brothers also had direct access to the notorious DNC emails.
Lots of detail at the link.
I am not sure if this has new info or not.
Having Democrats in charge of ANYTHING should be cause for FEAR!
Having a complicit MSM is a BRUTAL thing to overcome.
We did it by electing Trump but they just go 24/7 trying to destroy him and America.
They don’t have to be 100 percent successful as the US is already in dire straights.
I didn’t think msm still had so many viewers. I’m hoping that number gets less and less as the years go by.
“...I didnt think msm still had so many viewers...”
The leftists in this country look and read nothing else...
Now the US House of Representatives is not like the NSA, of course, but there is plenty of sensitive information that can put a LOT of the members in a difficult position, where they may have compromised on some campaign slogans, not at all what their constituency had elected them to office for. And to caution further, in the hands of a foreign operative, this information can be clandestinely fed back to either augment or destroy the re-election bids of these same members.
“””I am not sure if this has new info or not.””
The Left and Bias Media have been either not or under reporting this
The leftists complain and cry about what conservatives say or print, yet they don’t read or hear it themselves...They only go on what the Fake Stream Media tells them...
Rush hit the center of the nail when he called them Low Information Voters....
They handed over the Keys to the Kingdom.
THIS just PROVES that NO ONE in POWER wants to get to the bottom of this HUGE SCANDAL!!
It would be absolutely terrific if they had compromising information on Pelosi, Schmucky Schumer and all the rest of the commie crowd in Washington and Pres. Trump got a hold of it.
Thanks for posting. Most of the article is background, (good article to catch up on this topic) but starting with the last section there is more info about the influence of Pakistan
Pakistans Ties To U.S., China, Saudi Arabia and Israel
The apparent infiltration of DNC politicians and government systems by the Awan brothers is significant given Pakistans strategic ties to other countries who have also attempted to wield influence in the U.S.
The United States and China both have a long history operating in Pakistan for various purposes such as political influence and trade. Diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks show that the United States began a concerted drive to use Pakistans mountainous western regions as a springboard for training and deploying mujahideen groups which the U.S. would use to further policy objectives around the Middle East.
continues on the geopolitics....
Pakistan also maintains close ties with countries who have a history of attempting to influence U.S. policy and politics such as Israel and Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has a long history of collaboration with Pakistan, especially in military affairs. The country also gave considerable financial backing to the Clinton Foundation, a matter which generated significant controversy during the 2016 presidential election.
The close ties that Pakistan maintains to countries which have a history of meddling in U.S. affairs creates concerns about where the data which the Awan brothers had access to might have ultimately ended up. The Awans ties to terror groups similarly indicate that the security breach may have resulted in information being passed directly to extremists.
We have a scandle that is of epic proportions where everyone in some way is involved, the tentacles are far reaching and deliberate as to have everyone on board and guilty as the rest. the linch pin in all in all of this needs to be found where they can pull the house of cards down
This information needs to get out so it’s up to We The People aka The Deplorables! Rush, Hannity, Trump team, Veritas, Townhall, and other conservative outlets need to cover the Awan story and links to Blabber Mouth Schultz. Those active in Social Media need to post it and post it often.
Nothing will get attention without The Deplorables doing it. Anyone with contacts to get the truth out, please use them.
As one of eight members of the Committee on Appropriations Legislative Branch subcommittee, Wasserman Schultz is in charge of the budget of the police force that is investigating her Muslim IT staffer.
In a highly unusual committee exchange, Schultz uses a hearing on the Capitol Polices annual budget to spend three minutes repeatedly trying to extract a promise from the chief that he will return a piece of evidence being used to build an active case.
REALITY CHECK---Vasserman Schultz's paranoia about getting her laptopn back reminds me of Glinda The Good Witch advising Dorothy: "Keep tight inside those ruby slippers----they must be very powerful if the Wicked Witch of the West wants them so badly."
Bsides, if it was so important to Debbie, why didn't Debbie wasserman Schultz report her laptop missing to the Capitol Hill Police.....or to other L/E agencies? (smirk)
REFERENCE WikiLeaks show that:
<><> suspected Capitol IT staffer, Imran Awan, was employed by Cong Debbie Wassermann Schultz's taxpayer-funded House office....and by the DNC,
<><> Debbie herself got Imran his security clearances;
<><> the Florida Democrat mixed DNC, House, and DNC campaign business on her iPad......
<><> Debbie gave Imran her laptop passwpord...something even her staff did not have.
Questions have arisen as to and how Debbie suckered US taxpayers into financing the shady Paki/Muslim clans' humongous salaries....earning an unprecedented 5 million tax dollars and obtaining top secret intel from Democrat House members that employed them.
“...are at the center of a criminal investigation by U.S. Capital Hill Police.”
When only the best will do. To borrow a line from a movie I saw, the “FBI couldn’t find a hooker in a whore house.”
