The plea deal that the feds handed Muslim hacker Imran Awan on a silver platter last week was quickly leaked straight to the Washington Post, who didn’t publish the whole thing, only the parts they liked. The liberal news outlet proudly declared that the Department of Justice “found no evidence” the Awan family violated any cybersecurity laws. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Florida) started breathing again. But, that wasn’t exactly true. OUtraged insiders have leaked the full information, darkening the plea deal even more.
A who’s who of Democratic Congressmen paid the Awan family millions to graze through their classified government computers, phones, and laptops.
Through Andre Carson (D-Indiana), who sits on a crucial counterterrorism oversight committee, the Awans had access to materials beneficial to the Muslim Brotherhood. “Imran Awan’s father, Haji Ashraf Awan, had transferred a USB drive to a Pakistani senator and former head of a Pakistani intelligence agency,” according to reports. The thumb drive was allegedly full of American security secrets.
Until now, only unsupported rumors have been reaching the public, destined to evaporate on the wind of constant assurance by DOJ authorities that nothing really happened.
One of the stunned law-abiding investigators with access to OIG files was so upset that prosecutors turned a blind eye to the serious allegations that he did something about it, “debunking” all the liberal media gloating with a leak of his own.
When the Post printed the quote, “the Government has uncovered no evidence that your client violated federal law with respect to the House computer systems,” the insider had enough.
“A source allowed The Daily Caller News Foundation to review and transcribe the IG’s PowerPoint presentation.” The one that officially documents all the solid evidence that just “magically disappeared.”
For starters, House Inspector General Theresa Grafenstine reported “unauthorized access” of Democratic Caucus servers. Her analysis clearly warns, “excessive logons are an indication that the server is being used for nefarious purposes.”
Purposes like “reading and/or removing information.” Computers “could be used to store documents taken from other offices.” They can also “be used as a launching point to access other systems for which access is not authorized.” That would be considered “espionage.”
Other sources indicate that a large number of the “mobile devices,” considered in the IG report to be “irregularly purchased” by “20 congressional offices,” were used to ship the stolen data to Pakistani intelligence.
According to prosecutors, all that equipment that was improperly accounted for with inflated warranties attached may have been “improper” but not criminal.
Not a single Democrat is willing to say anything was stolen. It was all just part of the Awan family’s “combined” salary package deal.
Yet, espionage, and other mind-blowingly severe national security charges, “softly and silently vanished away,” never to be met with again.
They were made to vanish so neatly that it seems the Department of Justice must be keeping one of Lewis Carrol’s “Boojums” in the basement.
The only other logical conclusion is that the Department of Justice has been compromised.
How much blackmail does an immigrant family from Pakistan have on Democratic Congressmen? Could it stretch past the Democrats, even beyond Congress?
Nobody knows how many computer systems the Awan family might have had access to. Could they access any at the State Department? At the Justice Department?
These questions will never be answered. Thanks to the agreement the government made with Imran Awan, it is exactly the same as if those questions were never even asked.
IG Grafenstine reported that Imran and his family tried to “conceal” their “unauthorized access” to congressional computers. They used “Active Roles Servers” which “indicates they may be granting access on a temporary basis which could be done to evade network monitoring.”
When “the Caucus Chief of Staff requested one of the shared employees to not provide IT access to their computers,” the unauthorized access continued anyway.
One of the “un-vetted” “shared employees” regularly logged onto a laptop as “system administrator” then “changed identity and logged onto the Democratic Caucus server using 17 other user account credentials.”
A big problem is that the Awan’s didn’t work for 9 of the 17 offices they were scraping the data from.
The family was using Dropbox to sync files between “two Caucus computers” and their own. They had “thousands of files in their Dropbox folder on each computer.” The OIG wasn’t allowed to see what those files were, which means “some of the information is likely sensitive.”
Imran Awan, joined by his brothers Abid and Jamal and his wife Hina Alvi and a family friend Rao Abbas, performed IT services for a total of 30 U.S. Representatives. None had a security clearance. Every office signed a waiver saying no background check was needed.
When allegations first surfaced, All except Imran and his wife were let go. Wasserman Schultz kept Imran on her payroll up until the minute he was charged with bank fraud. He was arrested at the airport, on the way to Pakistan with $300,000 in cash.
One of those reasons is the fact that “Awan was even Wasserman Schultz’ IT aide when she headed the Democratic National Committee, which incidentally was when the DNC was hacked and the information given to WikiLeaks.”
