    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.

    President Donald Trump’s personal assistant, John McEntee, was escorted out of the White House on Monday, two senior administration officials said. The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment saying, “We don’t comment on personnel issues.” McEntee didn’t return a call seeking comment. McEntee was one of the longest-serving aides to Trump, dating back to the earliest days of the campaign...

    A sex worker who alleges to have had a relationship with Anthony Weiner from 2014-2016 has given the Gateway Pundit exclusive information about their encounters, including the fact that he would often keep his two laptops open while she was at the apartment that he shared with his wife Huma Abedin. The investigation into Clinton’s email scandal was reopened prior to the election when thousands of State Department emails were found on Weiner’s laptop. Earlier this month it was revealed in text messages between agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page that outgoing Deputy Director Andrew McCabe knew about...
  • Strzok May Have Used His Cell Phone In A SCIF, Himself Breaking Classified-Info Rules

    The Daily Caller ^ | Feb 8 2018 | Luke Rosiak
    Released texts between Peter Strzok, the FBI agent who ran the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email server, and his lover, FBI attorney Lisa Page, reveal the strong possibility that Strzok used his cell phone in a SCIF — a strict violation of protecting classified information. Such a breach would compromise Strzok’s ability to probe Clinton for mishandling classified info and show a lack of awareness about security breaches, which is what he was tasked to investigate. The text messages that the Senate released Wednesday show that Strzok texted his mistress on Aug. 11, 2016, “We’re in...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Jan. 2, 2017
    President Trump tweeted Tuesday there’s a double standard in the government’s treatment of Hillary Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin, pointing to Kristian Saucier, a former Navy sailor jailed for taking six photos inside a submarine. Saucier, 31, was released from prison in September after receiving a one-year sentence for mishandling classified information. With a felony conviction, he now works up to 70 hours a week collecting garbage in Vermont. “Obviously with his tweet today he still recognizes my case, so hopefully he will do something about it. I think my family and I have been punished enough," Saucier told...

    Heathrow chiefs are reeling after a memory stick crammed with confidential information was found in the street – posing “a risk to national security”. Britain’s biggest airport launched a “very, very urgent” investigation after the Sunday Mirror alerted them to the frightening security lapse. The USB stick – containing 76 folders with maps, videos and ­documents – was not encrypted and did not require a password. The man who found it plugged it into a library computer and was alarmed at what he saw. It revealed: The exact route the Queen takes when using the airport and security measures used...

    Judicial Watch recently released 1,617 new pages of documents revealing numerous additional examples of classified information being transmitted through the unsecure, non-state.gov account of Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, as well as many instances of Hillary Clinton donors receiving special favors from the State Department. The documents included 97 email exchanges with Clinton not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 627 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, “as far as she...

    Investigations into the House security breach indicate sensitive intel, required to remain within the system's digital security perimeter, was secretly shipped to an outside server.....perhaps destined for global distribution. Emails and office computer files of at least 45 Democrat House members are involved. Democrats are in danger of being blackmailed, but appear to be colluding and conspiring to keep each other quiet (the practiced Clinton MO to "say nothing and stall for time.") Ace reporter, Luke Rosiak, revealed Imran Awan allegedly routed data from numerous House Democrats to the secret server. Suspicious Capitol Police requested a copy of the server...

    Following a security breach that exposed the credit information of 143 million people to hackers, it was revealed that Equifax Chief Information Security Officer Susan Mauldin was a music major in college. Equifax, which is a credit reporting agency, hired Mauldin as their Chief Information Security Officer in 2013. Previously, Mauldin was the Senior Vice President and Chief Security Officer at First Data Corporation until 2013. Prior to that, she was also SunTrust Banks’ Group Vice President from 2007 to 2009. How she got any of these positions, or the skillset required for them, is still an open question considering...

    Susan Mauldin, whose identity is being scrubbed from the internet, studied music composition When Congress hauls in Equifax CEO Richard Smith to grill him, it can start by asking why he put someone with degrees in music in charge of the company’s data security. They might also ask him if anyone at the company has been involved in efforts to cover up Susan Mauldin’s lack of educational qualifications since the data breach became public. And late Friday Equifax said both Mauldin and the company’s chief information officer have retired effective immediately. Susan Mauldin’s LinkedIn page was made private and her...

    When Congress hauls in Equifax CEO Richard Smith to grill him, it can start by asking why he put someone with degrees in music in charge of the company’s data security. And then they might also ask him if anyone at the company has been involved in efforts to cover up Susan Mauldin’s lack of educational qualifications since the data breach became public. It would be fascinating to hear Smith try to explain both of those extraordinary items. If those events don’t put the final nails in his professional coffin, accountability in the U.S. is officially dead. Equifax “Chief Security...

    Credit Karma said it will add Equifax to its credit monitoring service as part of its free product, which proactively notifies members of significant changes to their credit report. It includes a whole suite of notifications for significant changes in credit queries, such as opening new accounts, a change in the status of an account, new personal information or a hard inquiry or application for credit. You'll probably find most of this in some other credit monitoring services, but Credit Karma is now looking to offer it for free as it looks to create a more simple tool for consumers...

    Credit reporting agency Equifax reported a massive security breach on Thursday. The breach may have exposed Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and other important personal information that has left 143 million US consumers vulnerable to ID theft. Equifax immediately offered a complimentary ID-theft monitoring program called TrustedID. However, blowback ensued quickly on Friday as the TrustedID terms of service require users to waive their right to sue or join a class action lawsuit to receive the monitoring. An Equifax spokesperson said the waiver “applies to the free credit file monitoring and identity theft protection products, and not the cybersecurity...

    On Monday Judge Napolitano dropped this bomb on the Imran Awan investigation. Judge Nap says Awan was selling US secrets to foreign agents. Judge Napolitano: He was arrested for some financial crime. That’s the tip of the iceberg. The real crime against him was that he had contact, he had access to emails of every member of Congress and he sold what he found in there. What did he sell and to whom did he sell it. That’s what the FBI wants to know. This may be a very, very serious national security investigation.

    An unnamed “senior aide” to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton left classified information unsecured and unattended in a hotel room during a 2010 trip to China, one of several overseas lapses by Clinton’s inner circle, Fox News has learned. Confirmation of the alarming violation comes as Clinton herself is under a renewed FBI probe for mishandling sensitive information on a private server and her longtime senior aide, Huma Abedin, also faces scrutiny as part of the investigation. It was not known which of Clinton’s aides left the information exposed.
