<>FBI agents apprehended Hina Alvi at an airport in 2017 <>She was suspected of hacking Congress and is the wife of Imran Awan <>Awan and his family members allegedly logged into servers of congressmen for whom they did not work

In March 2017, FBI agents were tailing House of Representatives IT aides suspected of hacking Congress, and apprehended one at the airport trying to make a hasty exit to Pakistan. She refused to speak with them, and a search revealed that she was carrying an apparently illegal amount of cash.

The FBI allowed Hina Alvi, wife of Imran Awan, to board the plane anyway — then filed paperwork saying agents believed she had no intention of returning to the U.S.

For nearly a year since, the case has lingered despite the House Office of Inspector General (OIG) determining that the family of Pakistanis made “unauthorized access” to Congress’s data shortly before the election.

Following revelations about the FBI’s actions in the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server and Department of Justice officials’ handling of the Trump dossier, attention has turned to the agencies’ apparently lax attitude toward the congressional cyber breach case as perhaps the most jarring failure to enforce laws in cases that overlap politics.

The OIG alleged Imran Awan and his family members logged into servers of congressmen for whom they did not work, logged in using members’ personal usernames, covered their tracks, and continued to access data after they’d been fired.

Perhaps, Xavier Beccera or Debbie Wasserman-Schultz can provide insight into this matter.

“Why Did The FBI Let A Congressional Hacking Suspect Leave The Country?”

Easy answer - it’s called a PHONE CALL.

Hopefully, again hopefully, this gets looked into.

It appears that the OIG is just a** cover for the FBI and DOJ. Anyone who thinks that he’s going to drop the hammer on these traitors is beyond naive. The result will be no different than what we saw from Comey. They are all in this together.

That’s easy. She has the goods on Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and a number of other Democrats in Congress and, I suspect, the FBI as well. But they’re gonna get Mike Flynn...!

Assholes, every slimy, stinking one of them!

Garsh, Mickey, why d’ya suppose they’d do that? Huh, Mickey? Why?

I’d trust Goofy to do a better job than our current FBI, DOJ, OIG, IRS, EPA, DOEn and DOEd elites.

Notice how the names Priestap, Ohr, Strzok, etc. have dropped off the the daily chatter line.

Several folks must be auditioning for the FBI/DOJ Choir.

I wonder if the rats have pictures of Sessions doing inappropriate things with minors? Something stinks about the way they are going after president Trump based on lies while Hillary remains free as a bird after committing numerous crimes. We still have a Just-Us Dept, not a Justice Dept.
