Uh oh. Looks like Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in heap big doo doo. FBI agents have evidently seized the destroyed computer hard drives from Debbie’s Muslim IT aide’s home. She is in a tizzy to get those smashed hard drives back… there must be something very damning on them. This revelation came to light from an individual who was interviewed by Bureau investigators in the case and a high level congressional source. Even though they are smashed, there are experts out there that can get data off those drives.
Pakistani-born Imran Awan was one of several Muslim IT guys that serviced the DNC. He is a longtime aide of Debbie’s. She desperately wants those hard drives back. The source, who remains anonymous, has confirmed that the FBI has now joined the Capitol Police criminal probe into what they are calling “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives. They all had access to emails and files for more than two dozen House Democrats… many sat on high-level national security committees. They were employed part-time, but still somehow made millions doing IT work. Plus, they sent a lot of the money back to the Middle East. When the investigation began, at least one of these guys fled back to Pakistan as well.
Capitol Police also seized computer equipment tied to Wasserman Schultz. She’s acting like she’s terrified over it too. There have been no arrests in the active criminal investigation yet, but everyone is being looked at… closely. Much of this began when a hidden laptop found in a vacant office was seized by the Capitol Police. Debbie has been demanding that it be returned and that it belongs to her. The police told her unequivocally, no. She even had the nerve to use a Capitol Police budget hearing to threaten that she would make sure there would be “consequences” for them if they didn’t return the laptop back to her immediately. They aren’t returning it and Debbie can pound sand over it.
The Awan group has made over $4 million since 2009 through the Democrats. It makes you wonder what they have on all of them. Some of the computers the Awans managed were being used to transfer data to an off-site server.
Not long after the criminal probe began last February, Imran suddenly vacated his longtime home on Hawkshead Drive in Lorton, VA. It went up for rent on a website that connects landlords with military families. On of the new tenants is a Marine Corps veteran who is married to a female Naval officer. He said that he found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and]a lot of brand new expensive toner.”
The tenants immediately called NCIS and shortly thereafter FBI agents arrived on the scene along with the Capitol Police to interview them and confiscate the equipment. The Marine spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his wife’s naval career, saying she doesn’t want to be associated with a national security incident. “It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.”
Imran wanted the hard drives back so badly, he threatened to sue the Marine for stealing them. Too freaking bad. Talk to the authorities. He went to the home three or four times demanding they be returned. The Marine would not let him enter. “Their lawyer contacted us today via email and said we owed $350 in late charges and the items he left in the house,” the Marine said. They can’t do that during a criminal investigation. Imran told the tenant to refuse certified mail and that he was homeless. Right.
Last Thursday, it was revealed that the police have not examined the laptop’s contents because of the invocation of the Constitution’s “Speech and Debate clause,” and after months of refusal, her lawyer is now “negotiating” access to the data on yet-to-be-determined terms. No one is talking and all the Democrats look scared crapless over this. For all the world this looks like a crime syndicate that has successfully infiltrated Congress and it is very, very dangerous. The Democrats are compromised it would seem. You can be that if Donald Trump and the Republicans had hired foreign nationals to be their top IT guys and somehow their congressional files had been compromised, this would have been all over the news… and would have ended very badly.
