Posted on 02/05/2017 11:22:05 AM PST by Beave Meister
It goes without saying that Democrats have had a number of problems with computer security over the past few years, whether it be the controversy that arose through Hillary Clintons use of a private email server, or the following hacks into the DNC.
Most blamed Russia for the hack, and they quite well could be responsible, but while their eyes were on Russia, they forgot about any threats to their security from inside.
According to the Daily Caller; Three brothers who managed office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were abruptly relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed congressional computer networks without permission.
Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nations most sensitive issues, information and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.

As much as I think Obama is anti-American and did everything he could to screw up our country, these people are employed by the House of Representatives
WHO hired these people??? And they were in charge of INTELLIGENCE!!!! omg.....WHO fired them?
We haven’t heard who they were answering to and who got them in. Who is the big boss wanting state secrets?
Timing is interesting. Could they have known about the Seal Team 6 raid in Yemen?
Fired is a good start.
Bill Clinton and Imram. (hat tip Albon Wilde).
The scum brothers must be big donors to The Clinton Foundation----
you dont get that close to a Clinton unless you gave big money.
Is this some kind of a joke?
Three brothers with islamic names?!
(HAT TIP DAILY CALLER) EXCERPT Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nations most sensitive issues and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.
Also among those whose computer systems may have been compromised is Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat who was previously the target of a disastrous email hack when she served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign.
The brothers are suspected of serious violations, including accessing members computer networks without their knowledge and stealing equipment from Congress.
Jamal handled IT for Rep. Joaquin Castro, a Texas Democrat who serves on both the intelligence and foreign affairs panels.
As of 2/2, his employment with our office has been terminated, Castro spokeswoman Erin Hatch told TheDCNF Friday.
Jamal also worked for Louisiana Democrat Rep. Cedric Richmond, who is on the Committee on Homeland Security.
Imran worked for Reps. Andre Carson, an Indiana Democrat, and Jackie Speier, a California Democrat. Both are members of the intelligence committee, and their spokesmen did not respond to TheDCNFs requests for comment. Imran also worked for the House office of Wasserman Schultz.
Then-Rep. Tammy Duckworth, an Illinois Democrat, employed Abid for IT work in 2016. She was a member of House committees dealing with the armed services, oversight, and Benghazi. Duckworth was elected to the Senate in November, 2016. Abid has a prior criminal record and a bankruptcy.
Abid also worked for Rep. Lois Frankel, a Florida Democrat who is member of the foreign affairs committee.
The three men are shared employees, meaning they are hired by multiple offices, which split their salaries and use them as needed for IT services. It is up to each member to fire them.
A criminal investigation into five unnamed people began late last year related to serious and potentially illegal violations of House IT policies, Politico reported Thursday. Chiefs of staff for the members were briefed Thursday by the Sergeant-at-Arms.
Capitol Police spokeswoman Eva Malecki said the investigation was still ongoing, and arrests have not been made but staff were asked to update their security settings.
Buzzfeed reported that the Sergeant-at-Arms told staff that the subjects were four men who were brothers and one woman. It did not name them. It quoted one of the affected members as saying they said it was some sort of procurement scam, but now Im concerned that they may have stolen data from us, emails, who knows.
Jamal did not return a request for comment from TheDCNF at a personal email address, while emails to House addresses in the three mens names bounced back Friday.
Another man, Omar Awan, is a senior IT specialist for the Houses Chief Administrative Officer. An email to his House address did not bounce back Friday, but did not receive a response.
Abid, Imran and Jamal have all shared a house in Lorton, Virginia, that is owned by Hina R. Alvi. Alvi is a female House IT employee who works for many of the same members as the three brothers, as well as the House Democratic Caucus.
Was this one of Nancy Pelousy’s hires? Who hired these Muzzi bastids, John McCrame?
If this is true along with what I already know, we are screwed. The present administration needs to crack down even harder and throw the traitors out.
It’s not just their names they are not citizens.
i am guessing they left a back door open when they left the house
I am sure they came in on a H-1B visa.
She’a a muzzi, too. This is getting deep.
