    FAISALABAD, Pakistan — The father of Imran Awan — an IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who investigators concluded made “unauthorized access” to House servers — transferred a USB drive to a Pakistani senator and former head of a Pakistani intelligence agency, the father’s ex-business partner, Rashid Minhas, alleged. Minhas told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Imran Awan’s father, Haji Ashraf Awan, was giving data to Pakistani official Rehman Malik, and that Imran bragged he had the power to “change the U.S. president.” Asked for how he knew this, he said that on one occasion in 2008 when...
  • Wasserman Schultz: Former FBI Director Comey shares blame for Hillary Clinton loss

    U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz believes that the way James Comey handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails was a factor in Donald Trump winning the presidency. “Doing what he did 11 days before the election was inappropriate and definitely violative of longstanding FBI practice,” Wasserman Schultz said, adding that she couldn’t predict the extent of the impact or whether it cost Clinton the election. But, she said, it had a negative impact. “I don’t see how it couldn’t have. I don’t see how that announcement, him coming out again and saying what he said that close to the election,...

    New reports have emerged that dozens of House Democrats waived the background checks on the Awan Brothers — the House I.T. aides handling their cybersecurity and with access to their email systems. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton went to Capitol Hill last year to help shine a spotlight on the ongoing Awan Brothers I.T. scandal in the House of Representatives that the mainstream media — and, sadly, even our Justice Department and much of Congress — are all ignoring. This is a story that involves political corruption, alleged cybersecurity breaches, the potential sharing of private constituent info, possible large-scale fraud,...

    Daily Caller News Foundation reporter Luke Rosiak said Democrats exhibited terrible judgement in the wake of the House IT scandal Monday on Fox Business and questioned why they still haven’t taken action. The Awan brothers — who worked as IT aides for many Democratic members of Congress, including Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz — have been the focus of an investigation into security practices on Capitol Hill. The brothers were not given background checks before being given access to highly sensitive government information and no explanations have been given as to why. “The House policy actually says that background checks...

    Jumping ju-ju bones… THIS is stunning. Luke Rosiak is the subject matter expert when it comes to the Awan Brothers scandal and the use of Pakistani nationals for Information Technology assistance by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee. His latest report is incredible. Apparently the 44 House Democrats who used the services of the Pakistani IT unit, hired them and exempted them from background checks. It should be noted these IT employees worked with some of the most sensitive national security secrets.

    Every one of the 44 House Democrats who hired Pakistan-born IT aides who later allegedly made “unauthorized access” to congressional data appears to have chosen to exempt them from background checks, according to congressional documents. ..... Among the 44 employers, the primary advocate for the suspects has been Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who introduced a bill Monday that would require background checks on Americans purchasing ammunition. “Without bullets a gun is just a hunk of useless metal,” she said, calling ammunition the “loophole” in gun control policy.

    At Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (D-FL) news conference she announced the Ammunition Background Check Act of 2018, which was legislation requiring background checks to purchase ammunition. ... Wasserman Schultz said, “Unlike firearm purchases, someone who wants to go into a store that sells ammunition can buy as much ammunition as they want without so much as being asked their first name.” She added, “This is just such a gaping and grave and dangerous loophole that I could not wrap my mind around it when I was told that that was the case.”

    At the risk of being called cold or harsh, let me begin by saying every American has a right to his/her opinion on just about any issue. Including guns. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let me add this: the people playing partisan politics on the graves of the 17 innocent dead people from Douglas High School are despicable. I don’t care what age they are. Over the last couple of weeks, a variety of conservative voices have gotten in trouble for insinuating that the anti-gun protesters coming out of Douglas High School seem far too practiced...

    “Can you believe these kids?” It’s been a recurring theme of the coverage of the Parkland school shooting: the remarkable effectiveness of the high school students who created a gun control organization in the wake of the massacre. In seemingly no time, the magical kids had organized events ranging from a national march to a mass school walkout, and they’d brought in a million dollars in donations from Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney. The Miami Herald credited their success to the school’s stellar debate program. The Wall Street Journal said it was because they were born online, and organizing was...

    Last July Imran Awan, a former IT administrator for members of Congress, was arrested at Dulles International Airport before he could fly away to Lahore, Pakistan. Imran and his wife—she was allowed to fly to Pakistan months before with their children—were subsequently indicted for bank fraud. Imran’s arrest made headlines, as he was then still employed by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) even though he’d been banned from the House network since February 2, 2017. Capitol Police say they tossed Imran and his associates off the House network after he provided them with fraudulent data of what was supposed to...

    A federal judge has ended curfew restrictions for ex-Capitol Hill IT aide Imran Awan but is still requiring him to wear a GPS monitoring device as he awaits trial on fraud charges and prosecutors argue he is a flight risk. U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan revoked Awan’s curfew restrictions and stopped requiring him to be drug tested, according to a Wednesday court filing. But Chutkan kept in place the GPS monitoring device and requirement that he not travel outside a 150-mile radius of his home. Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has been enrolled...

    Federal law enforcement agents working the Imran Awan and Hina Alvi fraud probe said the couple, along with other members of the family, were never properly vetted for Congressional security clearances. Instead the clearances, which provided the Awans access to dozens of Congressional Democrats computer networks and IT systems, were likely approved absent each individual background file getting “fully investigated.” “I seriously doubt they could have passed a full background (check),” one FBI insider said. “These clearances were pushed through.” FBI insiders used the word “forged” to describe the process of what happened to the Awan files. Federal law enforcement...

    The used car dealership known as CIA never seemed like an ordinary car dealership, with inventory, staff and expenses. On its Facebook page, CIA’s “staff” were fake personalities such as “James Falls O’Brien,” whose photo was taken from a hairstyle model catalog, and “Jade Julia,” whose image came from a web page called “Beautiful Girls Wallpaper.” If a customer showed up looking to buy a car from Cars International A, often referred to as CIA, Abid Awan — who was managing partner of the dealership while also earning $160,000 handling IT for House Democrats — would frequently simply go across...

    Independent government watchdog Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust (FACT) named Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz one of Congress’ “most ethically challenged” members for her role in the House IT scandal. Wasserman Schultz was named the second most ethically challenged member; every congressman on Congress’ list of secret harassment settlements tied for first. Two of Wasserman Schultz’s former IT aides, Imran Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, have been indicted on charges of conspiracy against the United States. Evidence gathered in a cybersecurity probe in the House of Representatives revealed a litany of violations, although the two aides have...

Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is currently enrolled in the High Intensity Supervision Program (HISP) with conditions that he abide by an electronically monitored curfew of 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. and a limit on traveling beyond 150 miles from his residence, according to court documents. Awan and his attorney want to lift those conditions, including the electronic monitoring bracelet. Federal...
