    Eighteen months after the House of Representatives began gathering evidence that showed unauthorized logins to congressional servers, falsification of purchase orders and other apparent violations, no criminal charges have been filed tied to the House activities of the Pakistani-born Awan family, raising the question of whether authorities take cybersecurity issues seriously even as politicians lament high-profile hacks. A hacking probe could take time. Yet colleagues with first-hand knowledge of suspicious activity told The Daily Caller News Foundation they have not even been interviewed. There is also no shortage of lesser charges that could appear to apply, and it is unclear...

    It first aired on television sets across America back in 1965 — and it’s been running ever since.This week, ABC will air the show to millions of adoring fans, old and new alike. Indeed, it now seems inconceivable to think of the holiday season without the classic cartoon, but the story of how “A Charlie Brown Christmas” came to be is in itself a classic American story — or, more accurately, how it almost didn’t come to be.Charles Schulz, the show’s creator, had some fundamental ideas about the 30-minute Christmas special. One of them had to do with a reading...

    Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz did not seem particularly concerned about the cyber breach that led to Wikileaks’ publication of internal emails, her successor Donna Brazile writes in her new book. That’s when she got around to telling them at all, waiting more than a month after first learning of it in April. Then she refused to apologize to those affected by the breach. Brazile writes:

    The Democratic Party has no discernible message, no recognizable plan and no real response to Donald Trump’s serial rending of basic decency and honor. Donna Brazile may be burning the village in order to save it. What else to take away from the former interim chair of the Democratic National Committee and longtime party operative in dropping the bombshell news this week about a fundraising agreement between Hillary Clinton and the DNC? It’s part of a larger story that focuses on the Russian hacking of the Democratic campaign and the threat to the democratic process, but it’s the “Clinton takeover...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has responded to a searing critique running the Democrat National Committee, saying she is ‘proud’ of her controversial tenure but failing to address claims she essentially handed over the party to Hillary Clinton. The former DNC chair issued a statement after her successor, interim chair Donna Brazile, released a book excerpt where she said Wasserman Schultz was ‘not a good manager’ and allowed Clinton to virtually take over the party even before she captured the nomination. ‘It was a tremendous honor to be asked by President Obama to serve as chair of the DNC,’ the Florida...

    The "non-scandal" scandal involving a former I.T. aide to several Democratic congressmen, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz, took an interesting turn when the wife of the alleged hacker and fraudster Imran Awan showed up in court separate from her husband and had retained a separate attorney. Imran Awan's own wife, Hina Alvi, filed papers in a Pakistani court accusing her husband of fraud and of marrying another woman.  The couple did not look at each other when they showed up in federal court on Friday.

    Perhaps you’ve lost track of the Democrats slowly exploding IT scandal, as much of the media is doing all it can to simply ignore it away. I’m referring to the strange case of Imran Awan, the IT aide Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., kept on her congressional payroll even after it became known he and his wife, Hina Alvi Awan, were being investigated by the Capitol Police for possible theft, fraud, moving terabytes of data off Congress’s system and more. Imran Awan was back in court last week. When pushed, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Mirando revealed some telling things about...

    An engineering student from Gwinnett County was fatally shot by a police officer on Georgia Tech’s campus Saturday night. The GBI is investigating the incident in which the student, who has been identified by Georgia Tech spokesman Lance Wallace as 21-year-old Scout Schultz of Lilburn, was allegedly barefoot and carrying a knife. The student’s legal name was Scott Shultz, GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said. At least two students shared cellphone video showing the tense interaction between Schultz and Georgia Tech police officers, Channel 2 Action News reported. Schultz yells at police to shoot and officers respond, “Drop the knife! Drop...

    It's starting to look as though Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi are making plea deals and incriminating people above them in the food chain.  Both of them were I.T. staffers for Democrats in the House of Representatives, earning substantial multiples of customary wages, raising intense suspicions of blackmail. Ms. Alvi reportedly has already made a deal and will be returning to the U.S. from her native Pakistan, where she earlier fled.  Her husband was arrested at Dulles Airport, attempting to do the same.  Todd Shepherd reports in the Examiner:

    Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was indicted Thursday on four counts including bank fraud and making false statements. The indictment also includes his wife Hina Alvi. The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from. Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer...

    **SNIP** The complaint grew out of the ongoing investigation of Awan and four other House staffers who in February came under investigation after allegedly stealing equipment from their employers. While neither Wasserman Schultz nor other affected members of Congress — all Democrats — have been linked to wrongdoing, Wasserman Schultz’s ill-fated management of the Democratic National Committee has made her a regular focus of attacks and dark theories from activists who believe the 2016 primaries were slanted against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). In the last month, the conservative Daily Caller has followed the Awan story especially closely, and on July...

    **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?

    **SNIP** Hina had also been on the House payroll. I want to draw attention to a detail about her apparent flight. According to the aforementioned complaint, agents of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) found $12,400 in cash when they searched her belongings. Yet, “ALVI was permitted to board the flight to Qatar and she and her daughters have not returned to the United States.” Her husband, Awan, appeared to be headed to join her when he was arrested yesterday. Why was Hina Alvi permitted to leave? Why was she not arrested? Under federal law, a person may carry as...

    Major cable news networks have given no coverage to the burgeoning scandal involving IT staffers to former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. Reporting by the Daily Caller News Foundation has revealed that Wasserman Schultz's top information technology staffer Iman Awan was arrested Monday after trying to flee the country amidst investigations into Awan concerning banking fraud and a criminal cybersecurity probe. Awan wired over $280,000 to Pakistan after the FBI recently recovered multiple smashed hard drives from Awan's home. Despite being blocked from the House computer network since February amid allegations of "committing...
