    We're not in John Walker territory yet, but the scandal engulfing up to 30 Democratic members of Congress who employed IT "expert" Imran Awan and four members of his family may turn out to be the worst breach of sensitive information in the history of the US Congress.The New York Post is reporting that the scandal may involve the sale of sensitive information on congressmen as well as classified data to the Russians or others. The potential for blackmail is real, say authorities. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from...

    In a plot Tom Clancy might have dreamed up, an IT staffer who’d worked for Democrats in Congress was arrested by federal officials and charged with bank fraud. Fox News has reported that officers and agents from the U.S. Capitol Police, the FBI and Customs and Border Protection, were involved in the arrest of Imran Awan at Dulles International Airport not far from Washington, D.C., as he tried to fly away to Pakistan. Awan has pleaded not guilty to bank fraud, but his strange case has all the feeling of the opening scene of a movie that might soon include...
  • How Did the Dems' IT Scandal Suspects Get Here?

    Here is a radical proposition: The public has a right to know the immigration status and history of foreign criminal suspects. Their entrance and employment sponsorship records should not be treated like classified government secrets -- especially if the public's tax dollars subsidized their salaries. In March, I contacted the D.C. offices of House Congressional Democrats Joaquin Castro of Texas, Sander Levin of Michigan, Marcia Fudge of Ohio, Greg Meeks of New York and Ted Deutch of Florida. These public officials have at one time or another employed one of three Pakistani Muslim brothers or their family and friends caught...

    The dominoes continue to fall at the Fox News channel (FNC).  Last month, popular Fox Business channel host and Fox News channel occasional anchor and guest Charles Payne was suspended after allegations that he sexually harassed a frequent female guest on FNC with whom he admitted to having had a sexual relationship.  A Fox News spokesperson confirmed last week that Payne remains on suspension. Now it is Eric Bolling who is the target: Eric Bolling.On Friday evening, HuffPo, in an article subsequently distributed widely by Yahoo News, reported that rising star FNC host and anchor Eric Bolling "Sent Unsolicited Lewd Text Messages To...

    **SNIP** 1. How many Democratic lawmakers are involved? 2. What is the actual extent of the Awans' alleged data theft? 3. Why did Wasserman Schultz refuse to fire Imran Awan when everyone else did, threaten the Capitol Police, and then continue paying him? 4. Are the bank fraud charges and data theft allegations connected? 5. Why are the Democrats so hush-hush about all of this?

    Imran Awan, a congressional aide arrested by the FBI after wiring $300,000 to Pakistan and misrepresenting the purpose, had previously wired money to the country and was frantically liquidating multiple real estate properties on the day he was arrested, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. Imran's real estate properties provide a source of money that could be sent directly to Pakistan when two upcoming home sales close. Prosecutors have since filed paperwork saying they fear "the dissipation of the proceeds of the fraud and destruction of evidence in other locations." [Snip] Authorities released him with a GPS...

    breitbart ^ | JOHN HAYWARD
    American Majority Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ned Ryun followed the latest twists and turns in the story of Fusion GPS on Friday’s Breitbart News Daily with SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam. Ryun said Thursday was a day of “massive” developments in the case, which is moving in a direction very different from what Democrats obsessed with alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump 2016 campaign expected. He spotlighted Hermitage Capital CEO Bill Browder, who has been “very involved” with the Magnitsky Act sanctions. “Fusion GPS was used against him and was used to lobby against the Act,” said Ryun. “The...

    WASHINGTON – Revelations from an email hack cost her the chairmanship of the Democratic Party, and now that another hacking scandal may be threatening her job in Congress, Rep. Debbie Wasserman, D-Fla., Schultz apparently and abruptly has decided to finally stop stonewalling investigators. As WND reported, U.S. Capitol Police seized one of her laptops months ago, hidden in a crevice in a House office building, as part of a criminal investigation into the suspected hacking of the office computers of potentially scores of House Democrats...

The latest batch of documents released Friday arrived long after the conservative legal watchdog organization filed its lawsuit in May 2015 requesting "all emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-state.gov" email address."

  • The Donald Trump Jr.Meeting With Foreign Entities Is No More A Scandal Than Clinton Crimes.

    IWB ^ | Pamela Williams
    I want to start this report first by saying the meeting Donald Trump Jr. was recently involved in with the strange cast of foreign entities occurred before President Trump was even nominated. In fact, it would be no different than Hillary Clinton having tea with all of her cohorts from foreign countries, including Russia, and saying a few things about Trump. Make no mistake that did occur at some time in her past. As I was putting this together, it occurred to me that Clinton has gotten away with so many crimes it would be impossible to list them all,...

    We have been hearing about Russian connections and Collusion for over a year now and very little of substance in terms of evidence has been forthcoming. But now with Don Jr. meeting a “Russian Agent”, surely this is the Smoking Gun? A little research shows that the “Agent” is in fact deeply connected to the Democrat party and was at least indirectly employed by the DNC during the “meeting”. So far, based on Don Junior’s emails and MSM speculation, the story goes that a Mr. Emin Agalarov contacted Don Jr. to arrange a meeting for him with a “Russian Lawyer”...

    Synopsis of video: The Russian "scandal" has had no effect on President Trump's approval ratings. The Rasmussen poll, the most accurate since it only interviews likely voters, has Trump at 45% approval, unchanged over the last three months. The last poll was taken July 11th. Other polls are also, essentially, unchanged. The Dems' obsession with Russia will likely backfire on them. They are making the same mistake Hillary made during her campaign. They have no message!! It's "Russia Russia Russia" 24/7. The scandal is big, inside the Beltway (Dems, the media) but the rest of the country is tired of...

    The banal news that Donald Trump Jr tried to get dirt on Hillary exposes Progressive delusions as a collective dementia unresponsive to actual facts.In 1848, Charles Mackay published Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. The preface to his first edition explains the idea behind the title: THE OBJECT OF THE AUTHOR in the following pages has been to collect the most remarkable instances of those moral epidemics which have been excited, sometimes by one cause and sometimes by another, and to show how easily the masses have been led astray, and how imitative and gregarious men...

    The talking heads at CNN and MSNBC are positively giddy. Aha! A Russia connection. Donald Trump Jr. met with Russians! It's best when they can find a liberal guest to say what they're thinking, and they have plenty from which to choose. Here's a sentence of hyperbole from Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., on CNN: "I think we are seeing an unprecedented amount of contacts, personal, political and financial, that Trump, his family, his team, his business had with Russia prior to the election." The use of the word "unprecedented" displays amnesia, or ignorance, or simply a rewrite of recent American...

    Ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) is down and out and emaciated. He recently surfaced on a subway train in Manhattan. The males on either side of him just stared. As you can see, Weiner's on a gadget. At the time of the plea agreement in May, the pervy pol had to turn over his passport and his iPhone. So let's just hope that's music he's listening to. [Snip] Weiner will be sentenced on September 13 after pleading guilty to sexting with a 15-year-old girl. As a part of his guilty plea, the pol who once took dick pics of himself...

    The Associated Press is at it again, pushing more fake news. Sadly, the once-great news wire service is trying to cover up its mistake—nearly the exact mistake that cost three editorial staffers at CNN their jobs in a scandal that first exploded a week ago today. A Breitbart News investigation has led to the correction by the Associated Press–which originally resisted–of the fake news it printed as deeper questions of responsibility, accountability, and journalistic ethics consume the AP heading into Fourth of July weekend. This time, the Associated Press invented an imaginary meeting between EPA administrator Scott Pruitt and Dow...

    These are the key elements of the case that make its so extraordinary and so potentially troubling: • The Awan group had access to all of their bosses’ emails, documents and confidential files: everything on the lawmakers’ office computers and other electronic devices. • That gave the technicians illegal access to all secret and privileged congressional information, including any potentially sensitive material that could be compromising and/or politically embarrassing. • Lawmakers have no way of knowing if anything on their electronic devices was copied. • The technicians had no oversight, and there was virtually no tracking of what they did....

    Three CNN employees have handed in their resignations over a retracted story linking President Trump to Russia, the network announced Monday. The article was removed from CNN.com on Friday after the network decided it could no longer stand by its reporting. “In the aftermath of the retraction of a story published on CNN.com, CNN has accepted the resignation of the employees involved in the story’s publication,” a network spokesperson told TheWrap in a statement. On Thursday, CNN investigative reporter Thomas Frank published a story involving an investigation into a Russian investment fund with possible ties to several Trump associates. According...
