The Democrats, who have SCREAMED the Russians did it!, may have a serious problem. It seems their desire for diversity may have compromised serious security for our nation. Now we don’t know exactly what happened, but the guess is a number of them, if not all of them, who use the DNC system and the intel committees, had their data accessed and even equipment stolen by three subjects- Abid, Imran and Jamal Awan (plus a mystery woman).
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 computers without permission.
Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan [Ed: Militant Quakers, no doubt] 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 nation’s 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 TheDCNF’s 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
How much was accessed and stolen? That’s a good question, but remember, these are the same guys who swore the Russians did it. Even when the Russians kept saying, “Hey look, we do bad shit all the time, this time, Honest Injun’ we did not do it!”
What makes me wonder if there is a bit of a cover up going on here, because the complaint is they “stole” equipment. More likely they took equipment that had data on it, because they made a salary of 160,000.00- a PIECE! So, snagging a laptop isn’t cost effective. What they may have stole is information on the laptop.
You can bet if the Dems were compromised by hiring, for the sake of diversity, Middle Eastern types, but managed instead to be compromised by those same ME types and top secret data was stolen, you can bet they are in full cover up mode! Worse, if that data made it to even bigger ME bad guys.
They will chase the brothers down for stealing a laptop, deny they took data, and blame Putin and Trump. (Which sadly, I may have just written Don Lemon’s opening statement on his lame show!)
“if they were compromised”… who am I kidding. It is how MUCH they were compromised!
Fools. Utter fools who will get a bunch of good people killed on the altar of PC and the progressive agenda. Not them, sadly, they are above all this mess. It will be just regular folks trying to do the right thing. Maybe even the SEAL in Yemen.
Apparently, not Mormons from Utah.
