Posted on 08/22/2018 7:53:08 AM PDT by ptsal
A federal judge declined to give jail time to former Democratic IT aide Imran Awan Tuesday, saying he has suffered enough at the hands of politicians at the highest levels of government. In addition, the Department of Justice said it did not find any evidence that supported criminal charges.
Imran choked back tears, saying, We want to thank the prosecution, the FBI and the Capitol Police, while his lawyer submitted a letter referring to President Donald Trump, Sen. Chuck Grassley and other Republications as deranged, pathetic and without a shred of decency.
Judge Tanya Chutkin gave Imran three months of supervised release. Imrans attorney had hoped to avoid the supervision, indicating Imran wanted to go back to Pakistan: By ending this today, you will allow Hina to build her family wherever she chooses and allow Imran to visit his fathers grave and secure his legacy, the attorney said.

How exactly would a Muslim “women’s shelter” be operated?
The biggest espionage operation (short of Hillary’s stop and shop server) ever in the US and ...
... nothing ...
Another “woman of color” judge appointed by Obama shows what a destructive job he did to our justice system while in office.
Easy — Muslims Women’s Shelter puts all the women in one place! Easier to molest and rape that way!
What is surprising here is that the State of Virginia should have various charges on tax avoidance by not reporting actual income....yet they seem to not care.
But Imran was a US govt employee working exclusively for House Democrats who apparently never kept track of his comings and goings.
US govt employee Imran found plenty of time (and mucho tax dollars--IT salaries alone amounted to millions) to pursue his private money-making interests:
<><> Virginia lists him as a real estate broker; he affirmed he spends 40 hours a week as a broker;
<><> he owned 12-or so houses....
<><> he rented out some of these homes....
<><> he ran a car dealership....
<><> he ran an export company to Pakistan
<><> he had a computer systems sales company (selling stolen govt gear?)
<><> Imran ran a Blackberry cell phone repair operation.
Imran's thirst for money was unquenchable. He falsified apps to get several home loans from the Congressional Credit Union.
He got the Congressional credit union to wire-transfer monies abroad.
A Strange Tale: the Congressional Federal Credit Union and Democrats' IT spies
SOME RESEARCH PROVIDED BY ANDREW McCARTHY (sarcasm provided by poster):
Bank fraud was the stated charge on which Debbie Wassermann Schultz's IT aide, Imran Awan, was arrested at Dulles Airport, as he was fleeing the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar.......the same route taken by his wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled, with $12,400 in cash (NOTE: it is against the law to take more than $10,000 out of the US without declaring it.).
By the time of Imran's arrest, the proceeds of his fraudulent $165,000 "loan" from the Congressional Federal Credit Union had been wired to Pakistan.... part of a $283,000 transfer that Awan managed to wire from Capitol Hill.
The conniving Imran pulled it off by pretending to be his wife in a phone call to Capitol Hill's true believers---the Congressional Federal Credit Union. Told that his proffered reason for the transfer (funeral arrangements) wouldnt fly, Mrs. Awan promptly regrouped: Now she was buying property.
Asking no more questions, the compliant Congressional Federal Credit Union wired the money......to Pakistan. One assumes the trusting Congressional Federal Credit Union had every expectation of getting repaid (cue laugh machine here).

The Pakis were using Cong Xavier Becerras House Democratic Caucus as their central service warehouse.
Crucial data was completely out of the House members possession. Was it sold off to America's enemies?
Then-Cong Becerra headed the House Congressional Democrat Caucus. Becerra gave the Paki spies free reign over all US intel.
<><> Imrans wife Hina Alvi, the only IT authorized to use Becerra's computer equipment, is on-record as logging on about 300 times.
<><> The rest of the Awan crew were accessing intel on Becerra's computer thousands of times using Becerra's passwords and codes.
This clearly shows the Pakis were operating as a cohesive, collusive undercover unit.
Becerra was looking the other way.
Becerra---now Cali's top lawman----refuses to answer questions about this. According to the House investigative report:
<><>The Awan family was logging in to Xavier Becerras House Democratic Caucus server with 17 different accounts
<><> The Awans' were accessing data belonging to Congressional offices that had no connection to the the Democrat Caucus,
<><> These patterns were consistent with data being funneled onto Becerras server from other members of Congress,
<><> House members said Becerra never alerted them to any aberrations.

Didn’t Imran Awan get arrested for Espionage ?
Meet the Muslim Democrat Congressman with a stranglehold on your safety and security.
Here's the shocking list of Congressional committees under the control of Indiana Democrat Andre Carson.
NOTE--The DNC places a price on these committees---Congressman wishing to be placed on the committee pay up front. Where did Muslim Carson get the money to get on these highly sensitive committees? Is Carson funneling Islamic cash into the DNC? Do his Indiana constituents know Carson bought these seats?

Good article on this.
EXCERPT In Sept 2016, the House Inspector General gave House leaders a presentation that alleged that Alvi, Imran, brothers Abid Awan and Jamal Awan, and a friend were logging into the servers of elected House members who had previously fired him and were funneling data off the network.
It said evidence suggests steps are being taken to conceal their activity and that their behavior mirrored a classic method for insiders to exfiltrate data from an organization. Server logs showed that Awan family members made unauthorized access to congressional servers in violation of House rules by logging into the servers of members who they didnt work for.
The IG presentation especially found problems on the server of the House Democratic Caucus chaired by then-Cong Xavier Becerra (Dem Calif). On Feb. 3, 2017, Paul Irving, the Houses top L/E officer, wrote to the Committee on House Administration that soon after it became evidence for L/E, Becerra's server went missing. Based upon the evidence gathered, we have concluded these IT employees are an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives, possibly threatening the integrity of US information systems. Imran, Abid, Jamal, Alvi and a friend were banned from the House network the same day Kiko sent the letter.--SNIP--
Cong Joaquin Castro, Democrat of Texas a US intel committee member who employed one of the Awans
told a reporter he was never told him of any cybersecurity issues whatsoever.
.....dumbhead Democrat Castro was too stupid to figure it out for himself.......?
In public documents, the Awan probe was simply described as a theft issue titled the House Theft Investigation
avoiding any mention of cybersecurity (as media coverage raged about 2016 Russian cybersecurity issues).
Taxpayers should be aware that even the alleged, but well-documented, Awan theft has not resulted in criminal charges.
House authorities are in possession of
<><> (A) members' purchase orders and vouchers that allegedly show procurement fraud,
<><>(B) as well as official testimony warning of procurement fraud.
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced in a closed-door meeting Tuesday she would name the first Muslim lawmaker to the Houses Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. A senior Democratic aide said Rep. André Carson of Indiana would be named in the coming days to the key national security-focused panel. Pelosi (D-Calif.) told lawmakers of the appointment during the members weekly caucus meeting.
Carson would be the first Muslim to serve on the committee and was the second Muslim to be elected to Congress. He already serves on the Armed Services Committee and worked for the Department of Homeland Securitys Fusion Center the clearinghouse established by the federal government to streamline data sharing between the CIA, FBI, Department of Justice and the military.
The intelligence committee will most likely tackle a series of high-profile international crises during the 114th Congress, including the threat of Islamic militants and Ukraine.
Carsons office didnt immediately return a request for comment. The announcement comes in the wake of last weeks terrorist attack by Islamic extremists and subsequent shootouts with police that left 17 people dead. World leaders gathered on Sunday for a 1 million person solidarity protest against the violence that targeted French Jews and journalists.
Trump needs to act on this subito. Speaker Ryan has the power ro remove Carson from these committees
What does DNC co-chair Ellison and Pelosi know about Muslims secretly funneling money into the DNC?
This screams of an use of the legal system to create a cover-up and end any more troublesome questions. The DOJ and the judge look to be complicit in hiding a foreign spy operation. Too many compromised Democrat Congressmen and staffs to allow this to all come out, I guess.
A secret memo marked URGENT detailed how the House Democratic Caucuss server went missing soon after it became evidence in a cybersecurity probe. The secret memo also said more than 40 House offices may have been victims of IT security violations. In the memo, Congresss top law enforcement official, Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving, along with Chief Administrative Officer Phil Kiko, wrote, We have concluded that the employees [Democratic systems administrator Imran Awan and his family] are an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives, possibly threatening the integrity of our information systems and thereby members capacity to serve constituents. The memo, addressed to the Committee on House Administration (CHA) and dated Feb. 3, 2017, was recently reviewed and transcribed by The Daily Caller News Foundation. The letter bolsters TheDCNFs previous reporting about the missing server and evidence of fraud on Capitol Hill.
It details how the caucus server, run by then-caucus Chairman Rep. Xavier Becerra, was secretly copied by authorities after the House Inspector General (IG) identified suspicious activity on it, but the Awans physical access was not blocked. But after, the report reads, the server appears to have been secretly replaced with one that looked similar. The memo called for firing the Pakistani-born aides, revoking all their computer accounts, and changing the locks on any door they had access to.
Rep. Louie Gohmert a Texas Republican on the House Committee on the Judiciary who has done oversight work on the case said the missing server contained copies of Congress members emails. They put 40 members of Congresss data on one server That server, with that serial number, has disappeared, he said. Multiple sources connected to the investigation told TheDCNF that shortly after an IG report came out identifying the House Democratic Caucus server as key evidence in a criminal probe, the evidence was stolen. They [the Awans] deliberately turned over a fake server to falsify evidence, one official close to the CHA alleged. It was a breach. The data was completely out of [members] possession. The six-page letter says:
In September of 2016 the CHA and [IG] briefed the former Chairman of the Democratic Caucus about suspicious activity related to their server that the [IG] identified. As a result, the former Chairman of the Democratic Caucus directed the CAO to copy the data from their server and two computers.
The CHA directed the IG to refer the matter to the US Capitol Police. The USCP initiated an investigation that continues to this day.
In late 2016, the former Chairman of the Democratic Caucus announced his intention to resign from Congress to assume a new position. The CAO and [sergeant-at-arms] worked with the Chairman to account for his inventory, including the one server.
While reviewing the inventory, the CAO discovered that the serial number of the server did not match that of the one imaged in September. [Investigators] also discovered that the server in question [the replacement server] was still operating under the employees control, contrary to the explicit instructions of the former chairman to turn over all equipment and fully cooperate with the inquiry and investigation. [A House source said the employee was Abid Awan.]
The USCP interviewed relevant staff regarding the missing server.
On January 24, 2017, the CAO acquired the [replacement] server from the control of the employees and transferred that server to the USCP.
President Donald Trump referenced the Democratic Caucus missing server in a tweet. But because the letter to the CHA was kept secret, many news outlets have not grasped that the Houses top cop documented a missing server connected to the Democratic Caucus. The timeline laid out in the letter also shows that Becerra now Californias Democratic attorney general failed to ensure that the Awans didnt have access to House computer systems during the 2016 election, which was wrought with cybersecurity scandals.
An IG presentation from September 2016 shows that Becerra knew of problems months before the server disappeared. The Caucus Chief of Staff requested one of the shared employees to not provide IT services or access their computers, it read. This shared employee continued.Its unclear why that request was not granted or why it was a request rather than an order. A House official close to the probe said the employee was Abid, who was not on Becerra or the Caucuss payroll. The official said Becerra Chief of Staff Sean McCluskie apparently knew Abid was accessing Caucus servers. According to payroll records, Abids sister-in-law, Hina Alvi, was the Caucus systems administrator.
The Awans continued physical access to Becerras equipment after red flags emerged enabled the server to disappear after it became evidence, House officials close to the investigation told TheDCNF. (RELATED: Becerra Tried To Block Awan From House Democratic Caucus Server, But Logins Continued; He Didnt Go To Cops) Becerra has refused to comment, citing an ongoing criminal investigation. The February 2017 memo itemizes numerous and egregious violations of House IT security by members of the Awan family, including using Congress members usernames and the unauthorized storage of sensitive House information outside the House.
These IT employees accessed user accounts and computers for offices that did not employ them, without the knowledge and permission of the impacted Members office, it said, adding, 4 of the employees accessed the Democratic Caucus computers 5,735 times.More than 100 office computers were open to access from people not on the offices staff, it said. Chris Gowen a former aide to Hillary Clinton who is now serving as Imrans attorney told TheDCNF, There is no missing server and never was. He didnt provide any support for his claim, which is contrary to evidence Kiko and Irving presented to Congress.
The memo said the CHA possesses voluminous evidence, including, Interview notes with House Members Chiefs of Staff, and Logon activity and computer access logs. Prosecutors have not brought charges. The Awans were banned from Congresss computer network the day the letter was sent, and Kiko held a briefing to convey the message to chiefs of staff for members who employed them. But Democrats claim they were never told about any of the cybersecurity issues itemized in the urgent memo. Rep. Jackie Speier a California Democrat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence who employed Imran and his wife, Hina Alvi said she never heard of any missing server.
Cong Joaquin Castro of Texas another Democratic intelligence committee member who employed one of the Awans told TheDCNF that Kiko never told him of any cybersecurity issues whatsoever and that the Awan probe was instead described as a theft issue. Indeed, the CHA issued only one public statement on the case and titled it the House Theft Investigation wording that avoids cybersecurity words while political news coverage raged about other cybersecurity issues in the 2016 election. Yet even the alleged theft has not resulted in criminal charges even though the letter also says House authorities have purchase orders and vouchers that allegedly show procurement fraud, as well as testimony from a Democratic chief of staff to Rep. Yvette Clarke, who warned of procurement fraud.
The FBI arrested Imran at the airport in July 2017 for alleged bank fraud that occurred six months prior, and Democrats have since claimed that the case is about nothing but bank fraud. Bank fraud does not explain why the Awans were kicked off the House network concurrent with the urgent memo, which did not cite bank fraud. A Democratic IT aide who alleged that Imran solicited a bribe from him told TheDCNF he believes members of Congress are playing dumb and covering the matter up. Wendy Anderson, a former chief of staff to New York Rep. Yvette Clarke, told House investigators that she suspected that her predecessor, Shelley Davis, was working with Abid on a theft scheme, but Clarke refused to fire Abid until outside investigators got involved, TheDCNF reported.
Eighteen months after the evidence was recounted in the urgent memo, prosecution appears to have stalled for reasons not publicly explained. Imran is in court July 3 for a possible plea deal in the bank fraud case. Gohmert said the FBI has refused to accept evidence demonstrating alleged House misconduct, and some witnesses with first-hand knowledge say the bureau has not interviewed them.
Only Trump supporters are guilty of tax evasion.
