Posted on 07/24/2017 5:37:38 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultzs information technology (IT) administrator, according to an individual who was interviewed by Bureau investigators in the case and a high level congressional source.
Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, the individual told The Daily Caller News Foundations Investigative Group.
The congressional source, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.
Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.
Awans younger brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife, Hina Alvi, and Rao Abbas, Imrans best friend, are also under investigation. There have been no arrests in the case.
There is also evidence of financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Polices purview and may expand to Pakistan, where Imran spends significant portions of the year.

FTA: Soon after Imran began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, his two brothers and two of their wives plus Abbas and another friend began appearing as IT staffers on the payrolls of other House Democrats. Collectively, the Awan group has been paid $4 million since 2009.
Fellow IT staffers interviewed by TheDCNF said the Awans were often absent from weekly meetings and email exchanges. One of the fellow staffers said some of the computers the Awans managed were being used to transfer data to an off-site server.
Wonder who that info source was??
Ping George Webb!!!
Are they keeping it quiet to keep witnesses alive?
One good Marine doing the right thing.
That is all that stood between us (all ya’all) and the crapping spying and blackmail gig.
Remember just one good Marine making the right choice.
Total lack of any coverage o the Awan scandal by the MSM. The Awan brothers somehow inserted themselves into the IT dept of a dozen high level Dems, they had full access to their emails, they extorted money from these same Dems, and Debbie "Bad Hair Day" Shultz *doesn't* want an investigation by the Capital Police. There's something vewy squwooee going on here.
This is major news. I don’t even hear FOX talking about it.
Why are these Democrats and their muzzie buddies getting away with stuff.
It was never RUSSIA, it was always RATs.
George Webb has been all over this one... since.... last year(??)
He has been all over DC trying to get people’s attention to DWS hiring these Paki(ISI) “IT” guys to work “for” the DNC, the spy network they set up with the Blackberries and other servers.
There is alot more on George Webb’s youtube channel. I’m not even sure where to tell you to begin watching.
I suppose Day 138, but there was definitely multiple mentions prior to this.
Sending classified information to ISIS and/or the Muslim Brotherhood.
Debbie “Bad Hair Day” Shultz *doesn’t* want an investigation by the Capital Police
Suppose this was all over the MSM, huh....
search George Webb on youtube for his daily videos. For what it’s worth, he’s been talking about the Awans spy ring and Debbie Wasserman Schultz for quite a while.
Who is this "they"? Certainly not the MSM.
By "witnesses", do you mean the Awan clan? Are they even still in ConUS?
So for anyone following the George Webb youtube videos, the NEW news is that the FBI (hopefully the white hats variety) is joining the Capitol Police with the IT investigation. The FBI is joining because the CP did not have the IT expertise necessary for the investigation.
Hopefully, the baby steps will get those wanting justice to the destination. The computers or were they blackberries were picked up in March.
Webb layed this all out to Roziac months ago after he spoke with the marine renting Awan’s house.
Because he's probably extorting her to the tune of $25,000 a month and she needs to show that as his paycheck.
They all need to be sharing a cell in Leavenworth.
Use FR keyword ‘itgate’. Many articles.
The Daily Caller seems the only source of reliable information, though there are a number of bloggers reporting rumors and speculation.
It is inexplicable that this isn’t getting daily coverage in the MSM.
I am sorry. Blackberries were not mentioned in the posted article. During this time, George Webb had been talking about Congressional blackberries which were also used by the Awans for gathering information from Congressional members.
Amen! BUT, his wife, still serving in the Navy, is scared that being associated with turning these guys in will hurt her career! Why should doing the right thing damage her career?????
I thought you were joking when you mentioned George Webb. George Webb is a chain of low cost, all night eateries with bad food in the Milwaukee region! I’ll check it out.
Hold-over weinies higher up the food chain.... CYA
