The media has been obsessed since day 1 of President Donald J. Trump’s administration about Russia. The far left have claimed the “Election has been hacked!” and they demanded recounts, and the media continues to cover it to this day.
This effort has been a distraction from the real failures, cover-ups, and scandals of the Democrats, who are still cleaning up the mess made by Hillary Clinton, who was the most corrupt politician to ever run for president.
Now, a massive scandal has rocked the Democrat Party, and it involves computer security. According to a bombshell new report in The Daily Caller, Democrat IT staffers quietly accepted $100,000 from Iraqi sources, while simultaneously handling sensitive computer security for top House Democrats, including former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
This is a big deal, but the mainstream media isn’t touching this story:
Rogue congressional staffers took $100,000 from an Iraqi politician while they had administrator-level access to the House of Representatives’ computer network, according to court documents examined by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
The money was a loan from Dr. Ali al-Attar, an Iraqi political figure, and was funneled through a company with “impossible”-to-decipher financial transactions that the congressional information technology (IT) staffers controlled.
Imran Awan, ringleader of the group that includes his brothers Abid and Jamal, has provided IT services since 2005 for Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman. The brothers are from Pakistan.
The trio also worked for dozens of other House Democrats, including members of the intelligence, foreign affairs and homeland security committees. Those positions likely gave them access to congressional emails and other sensitive documents.
The brothers, whose access to House IT networks has been terminated, are under criminal investigation by the U.S. Capitol Police.
Wasserman Schultz resigned from her DNC post following a disastrous email hack during the 2016 campaign. Her House spokesman did not respond to TheDCNF’s question Monday about Imran’s employment status. As of Feb. 6, she had declined to fire Imran.
Investigators found that congressional information was being copied to an off-site server and they suspect the brothers of improperly accessing information and stealing congressional property. Chiefs of staff for the employing Democrats were notified Feb. 2.
Soon after Imran began working for members of Congress, Imran’s and Abid’s wives — Hina Alvi and Natalia Sova — also began receiving congressional paychecks, TheDCNF found. Imran’s employers included two members of the intelligence committee, Indiana Democrat Rep. Andre Carson and California Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier.
By 2009, the family was simultaneously managing a full-time car dealership in Virginia, with Abid running day-to-day operations after contributing $250,000 in startup cash. It was called Cars International A, LLC, referred to as “CIA” in court documents.
Have you seen this anywhere else? NBC, CNN, or ABC?
Imagine if something else had happened- For example, Russian brothers accepting Russian money while working for Republicans. That would be the front-page of every newspaper this morning.
Democrats clearly never took computer security seriously, and continue to learn the hard way how easy it is for even casual hackers to gain access to highly sensitive emails and documents. Democrats suffered daily scandals during the 2016 presidential election, with details that we would have never seen if not for WikiLeaks, Drudge Report, and other alternative media outlets.
Why were these brothers, who were both making $160,000 per year on a taxpayer-funded salary, receiving this money while having such serious debt problems? There are major questions that need to be asked.
