  • Florida judge rules ballots were illegally destroyed in Wasserman Schultz race

    **SNIP** Circuit Judge Raag Singhal decided that the records were wrongly destroyed because the laws require elections offices to keep the ballots in federal elections for 22 months. Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes destroyed the ballots just after 12 months, the Sun-Sentinel reported. The judge also noted that because the ballots were subject to a lawsuit, only a court order should have allowed their destruction. Snipes “has not presented any evidence refuting that the public records sought were destroyed while this case was pending before this court,” Singhal said.

    The federal court case against Imran Awan, the former IT aide to congressional Democrats, has been hit with repeated delays over the last six months -- a situation fueled by allegations in the media that, according to his attorney, have piqued the curiosity of prosecutors. **SNIP** A grand jury in August returned an indictment in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia charging Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, with a total of four counts, which included federal bank fraud and conspiracy. Awan has pleaded not guilty to all charges. The facts of the case on paper are...

    A lawyer for Abid Awan — one of the three brothers who the House Inspector General found made “unauthorized access” to congressional servers before the election — used a deposition in an unrelated civil case to ask a witness to reveal what she told FBI agents, to ascertain if they asked about “radical Islamic activities,” and inquire about a grand jury. Attorney Jim Bacon also asked the witness to try to find out details of the investigation from officials and asked whether they had offered to put her into a witness protection program. The deposition was given as part of...

    America's rule of law is failing, big time This [Democrat involvement with the Awan family] has been going on since the early to mid-2000s, and it is shocking how terrible the Democrats are with military matters of national security. This is abhorrent on just about every conceivable level. If they slow-walk this investigation to oblivion then I believe that…if all of these people get away, if there are no negative repercussions, I genuinely believe that the mainstream acceptance of the rule of law in America will die a strange and sad death. If this goes nowhere then the republic, currently...

    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...

    Shortened title. Full title: CNN: Podesta, Wasserman Schultz denied knowing Fusion GPS funding to investigators — with Elias present Did DNC and Team Hillary attorney Marc Elias lead John Podesta and Debbie Wasserman Schultz into a perjury trap? According to CNN, the two testified to congressional investigators that they did not have any knowledge of the funding for the Fusion GPS dossier that prompted an FBI probe into Donald Trump campaign figures. In recent closed-door interviews with the Senate intelligence committee, Podesta and Wasserman Schultz said they did not know who had funded Fusion GPS, the intelligence firm that hired...

    A federal grand jury Thursday indicted two former information technology (IT) aides of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz — Pakistani-born Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi — on four counts of conspiracy in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The FBI arrested Awan at Dulles International Airport July 24 as he was preparing to board a flight to Pakistan. When his wife Alvi left the U.S. for Pakistan in March, federal authorities found more than $12,000 in cash hidden in a suitcase. She had withdrawn the couple’s three children from local schools and does not intend...

    Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was indicted Thursday on four counts including bank fraud and making false statements. The indictment also includes his wife Hina Alvi. The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from. Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) slammed the "terrible judgement" by former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) regarding a technology aide on her staff who is under investigation for fraud. "The incompetence and terrible judgment displayed by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and House Democrats is jarring," the 2016 presidential candidate said a tweet on Saturday. (TWEET-AT-LINK).....

    **SNIP** The complaint grew out of the ongoing investigation of Awan and four other House staffers who in February came under investigation after allegedly stealing equipment from their employers. While neither Wasserman Schultz nor other affected members of Congress — all Democrats — have been linked to wrongdoing, Wasserman Schultz’s ill-fated management of the Democratic National Committee has made her a regular focus of attacks and dark theories from activists who believe the 2016 primaries were slanted against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). In the last month, the conservative Daily Caller has followed the Awan story especially closely, and on July...

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | August 4, 2017 | Alex Griswold
    Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) had no qualms about keeping an IT staffer on her payroll even while he was under federal investigation. House Capitol Police opened an investigation into Imran Awan and four other Democratic contractors in February. Despite every other member of Congress severing ties with those staffers, Schultz continued to keep Awan on her payroll, even after his House IT privileges were revoked. Schultz only stopped paying Awan in July, the day after he was arrested for bank fraud at Dulles Airport while attempting to flee to his native Pakistan.

    **SNIP** 1. How many Democratic lawmakers are involved? 2. What is the actual extent of the Awans' alleged data theft? 3. Why did Wasserman Schultz refuse to fire Imran Awan when everyone else did, threaten the Capitol Police, and then continue paying him? 4. Are the bank fraud charges and data theft allegations connected? 5. Why are the Democrats so hush-hush about all of this?

    **SNIP** Hina had also been on the House payroll. I want to draw attention to a detail about her apparent flight. According to the aforementioned complaint, agents of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) found $12,400 in cash when they searched her belongings. Yet, “ALVI was permitted to board the flight to Qatar and she and her daughters have not returned to the United States.” Her husband, Awan, appeared to be headed to join her when he was arrested yesterday. Why was Hina Alvi permitted to leave? Why was she not arrested? Under federal law, a person may carry as...

    The fact that republicans are not shouting this story from every media outlet tells me lots about the integrity of the republicans. The mainstream media is spiking the reporting of this story big time. Hannity, having almost lost his job by reporting on Seth Rich’s murder, is under reporting this story. Drudge, as of yesterday, was not reporting this story. This story is huge and deserves to be over reported!!!

    WASHINGTON — Embattled Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has avoided facing any media since her law enforcement arrested her former IT staffer Imran Awan Tuesday on bank fraud charges. Wasserman Schultz, who walked down the House Capitol steps late Wednesday afternoon following remarks she made on the floor, caught site of The Daily Caller’s reporter and nervously turned around and ran back up the steps with her staffer in tow. The Miami Herald reported Thursday night that her spokesman told a reporter Wednesday, as she walked to the floor of the House, that she would not answer questions about...
