    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...

    The co-founder of Trump dossier firm Fusion GPS confirmed in court filings on Tuesday that he met last year with Justice Department official Bruce Ohr and hired Ohr’s wife to help with the opposition research firm’s investigation of Donald Trump. Glenn Simpson said in a declaration filed in federal court in Washington, D.C. that he met “at [Ohr’s] request” weeks after the presidential election. Simpson stated that Ohr, who recently held the position of deputy assistant attorney general, sought the meeting “to discuss our findings regarding Russia and the election.” Simpson also disclosed that Fusion GPS hired Ohr’s wife, Nellie,...
  • TD Bank to eliminate 200 call center jobs, while Thing5 still looks for help

    05/10/2012 4:18:41 PM PDT · by matt04 · 4 replies
    TD Bank is closing its customer service call center at 1441 Main Street and eliminated 200 call center jobs. But those workers may have a lifeline in the form of Thing5, a fast-growing company that is still looking for 350 employees to staff a call center it just completed in the neighboring One Financial Place Building at 1350 Main Street. The center is scheduled to close in December. “So technically we could absorb them all. I don’t know if what we have is right for all those people. But by numbers we could absorb them all, “ said David Thor,...

    A federal judge in Washington, D.C. has recused herself from a second case involving Trump dossier firm Fusion GPS. Tanya S. Chutkan, an Obama appointee, recused herself on Monday from a case involving a dispute over subpoenas issued for Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned the dossier. Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian tech executive accused in the dossier of hacking Democrats’ computer systems, has sought to subpoena Fusion GPS records and to depose its employees to find out more about the research firm’s work on the dossier. Gubarev is suing BuzzFeed for defamation for publishing the dossier earlier this year. He...

    The good news is that Sen. Charles Grassley on Tuesday asked DHS for all immigration summaries and detainers for Imran Awan, wife Hina Alvi, brothers Jamal and Abid Awan, and friends/associates Natalia Sova and Rao Abbas. Here is a radical proposition: The public has a right to know the immigration status and history of foreign criminal suspects. Their entrance and employment sponsorship records should not be treated like classified government secrets -- especially if the public's tax dollars subsidized their salaries. In March, I contacted the D.C. offices of House Congressional Democrats Joaquin Castro of Texas, Sander Levin of Michigan,...

    Imran Awan was arrested at Dulles International Airport July 24, while attempting to board a flight to Pakistan. For more than a decade the congressional staffer had worked under top House Democrats, and he had just been accused by the FBI of bank fraud. It was a dramatic moment in a saga that started in February, when Capitol Police confirmed an investigation into Mr. Awan and his family on separate accusations of government theft. The details are tantalizing. The family all worked for top Democrats, were paid huge sums, and had access to sensitive congressional data, even while having ties...

    Imran Awan was born in Pakistan in 1980. He sought his education in Information Technology. He first came to Capitol Hill in 2004 working for Florida Democrat Robert Wexler. He has worked as a shared employee for Democrats as an information technologist for 13 years. He is a Pakistani immigrant, who made his home in the US in Lorton, Virginia. He has actually provided technical support for 25 other House Democrats working as a shared employee. He, also, managed to get his wife, HIna Alvi, on the House payroll. Then his brother, Abid Awan, then Abid’s wife, Natalia Sova became...

    Former US congressman Robert Wexler is a man worth listening to. Wexler served as then-senator Barack Obama’s chief booster in the American Jewish community during the 2008 presidential campaign. He appeared everywhere and said anything to convince the American Jewish community that the same man who sat in the church pews listening to Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s anti-Semitic vitriol for two decades, and listed among his closest friends and associates a host of Israel-haters as well as former terrorists, was the greatest friend Israel could ever have. Once Obama was elected, Wexler continued to serve as his Jewish shill. Wexler traveled...

    SNIPPET: "BOCA RATON, Fla., April 13 (UPI) -- Voters elected Democrat Ted Deutch Tuesday to fill out the term of retired U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla., election returns indicated. Deutch, who campaigned as a supporter of healthcare reform legislation and of President Barack Obama, easily defeated Republican Ed Lynch and an unaffiliated candidate. Lynch conceded before 10 p.m. before all precincts reported, The Palm Beach Post reported."

    Florida state Sen. Ted Deutch (D) has won the special election to replace former Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.). Deutch had about 61 percent of the vote with more than half of precincts reporting, while Republican contractor Ed Lynch was taking about 36 percent of the vote. The race has been called by AP. Deutch was the heavy favorite heading into Tuesday night in a strongly Democratic district. Republicans didn't do much to contest the race. Wexler resigned in late 2009 to head up a Middle East think tank.

    As of now, 10:15 PM DST, polls are closed for more than three hours in Florida where voters had voted to fill a vacant seat of a long-serving retiring Democrat Congressman in District 14. But apparently, both sides slept deep: as of the current count, less than 14,000 people voted in Broward County, a Democratic strong-hold which is one of the two Counties of the 19’Th district. The Democrat has now in total 7,342 votes, vs. 5,837 for the Republican. We still need to get results from Palm Beach County, and the final results for the night too. I get...

    Voters in congressional District 19 today will choose a replacement for U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler, the Democrat who stepped down in January to head a Middle East think tank. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The district has more than twice as many Democrats as Republicans and voted 65 percent for Barack Obama in 2008. That makes Ted Deutch, a state Senator from Boca Raton, the heavy favorite. But Republican Ed Lynch hopes to ride voter dislike for the new Democratic health care law to an upset victory. And independent candidate Jim McCormick hopes enough voters are...

    Dick Morris has endorsed Ed Lynch on Sean Hannity’s tv show because he knows this election is the first national referendum on Obamacare. Tuesday can be just another day or a great celebration because we have beaten a Marxist Democrat in the old seat of former Congressman Robert Wexler, a very Marxist Democrat. How Tuesday turns out is up to us; the half of America that actually gets it and wants to save our nation. On Tuesday April 13 there will be a special election in the 19th Congressional District of Florida. Our candidate is Ed Lynch a young strong...

    Ed Lynch isn’t just a Republican candidate with the only upcoming special election in the nation. Ed Lynch is as a man whose personal example embodies the very best of the Republican Party. Lynch is no ordinary candidate. After all, what candidate, two weeks before a primary vote, decides to leave his district in favor of leading a rescue mission in Haiti? But that episode, more than any other, demonstrates what Ed Lynch is all about. His choice to save lives rather than campaign is emblematic of Lynch’s life history. As a general contractor, Lynch won a construction bid to...

    Beginning March 1, Speaker Nancy Pelosi may fall below the 218 votes she needs to pass health care reform. The House health bill got 220 votes. But Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla., has retired. Joseph Cao, R-La., the lone Republican voting “yes”, says he won’t support the final package. And on Feb. 28, Rep. Neal Abercrombie, D-Hawaii, retires to focus on running for governor. That brings Pelosi to 217, assuming there are no other changes. The soonest Pelosi would be back up to 218 would be April 14, one day after the special election to fill Wexler’s seat.

    An honest headline would read, “Lynch in a walkover: TKO’s Wexler.” In boxing terms conservative Republican Ed Lynch has scored a TKO walkover victory against soon to be former Congressman Robert Wexler (D) Fla 19th CD. Lynch’s courage and tenacity convinced the FBI to investigate Wexler for multiple violations of federal laws and finally forced Wexler to slither away rather than have investigators prove he doesn’t live in Florida let alone his district. Lynch’s campaign commented that, “For all practical purposes, Wexler quit representing his constituents and stopped carrying out the real responsibilities of a Congressman long before his resignation…...

Wexler said today he will step down in January to become the executive director of the Center for Middle East Peace and Economic Cooperation, a Washington-based non-profit that describes itself as advocating for "the peace that Israelis and Arabs seek."
