Democrat Scandal Grows Over Sensitive Terror Data

Fox News recently reported:

A criminal investigation into IT (information technology) contractors employed by dozens of House Democrats is sparking broader concerns about continuing access to sensitive government emails, amid new allegations of illicit activity beyond Capitol Hill.

The investigation was announced last month by the U.S. Capitol Police and purportedly focuses on the contractors’ access to House computers and whether they took hardware and made questionable IT-related purchases.

…Official documents and multiple sources say at least five contractors — including (Muslim Pakistani immigrant) brothers Imran, Jamal and Abid Awan — are the focus of the probe but that as many as six people could be involved.

OK, so we have Democrats involved in yet another scandal that probably endangered our national security. But some news stories conveniently omit the fact that the suspects are Muslim and Pakistani immigrants or that several of these Democrat congresspeople are members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which handles sensitive materials relating to the War on Terror.

Naturally if you do an internet search about investigating anything these days you come up with stories about Democrats demanding the investigation of the “fake news” story about Russian involvement with the Trump campaign.

But then when we have clear evidence of potentially significant danger to our national security you won’t hear much about it except in the conservative media. Most of the major left-wing media have either ignored the computer story, largely ignored it or minimized it. The conservative-leaning Daily Caller reported:

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 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.

…The brothers are suspected of serious violations, including accessing members’ computer networks without their knowledge and stealing equipment from Congress.

So first they were shady Muslims (security red flag), they surreptitiously accessed the computers (security red flag) and then actually stole computers and other equipment (security red flag). But you will see little or nothing about this on the nightly news on NBC, CBS, CNN, etc. No, they are too busy reporting about the boycott of Ivanka Trump’s fashion line (the boycott is failing, by the way. She is having record sales). Here is more from Fox News about the computer scandal:

The others purportedly involved are Imran’s wife, Hina Alvi, and Rao Abbas, who is not part of the family. They allegedly removed hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment from offices, including computers and servers, and ran a procurement scheme in which they bought equipment, then overcharged the House administrative office that assigns such contractors to members.

Friends, we don’t even know how big this scandal could be because it hasn’t been prosecuted yet. expects these brothers to flee our country.

This is why the media are always focusing on something negative or frivolous about Trump, in order to divert our attention from very serious issues surrounding Democrats. If this scandal involved president Trump it would be all over every newspaper. Look at this from The Daily Caller:

Imran (Awan) 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 (Awan) 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.”

…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.

Signs of trouble have long been visible in public records. The Congressional Credit Union repossessed Abid’s car in 2009, and he declared bankruptcy in 2012, facing multiple lawsuits.

Alvi, who did not respond to TheDCNF’s request for comment, has taken multiple second mortgages.

Security-sensitive jobs typically require background checks for credit and legal problems that can create pressures to cash in on access to secret information and documents.

Now here is some information about Andre Carson, the black Democrat congressman from Indiana (representing most of Indianapolis, the liberal part of Indiana) who converted to Islam in the 1990s. This is from the Center for Security Policy:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s recent decision to appoint Rep. André Carson to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) for the 114th Congress raises deep concerns from a national security perspective. Particularly alarming is Rep. Carson’s long history of associating with organizations known to be front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood. The Carson-tied Muslim groups have a documented history of serving as unregistered foreign agents, engaging in material support for terrorism, and possessing direct ties to the Brotherhood’s Palestinian franchise, Hamas, a designated terrorist organization.

Thus it is no surprise that he just happened to employ three Muslim Pakistani immigrant brothers to work on his office computers, and that the brothers are now under investigation. Here is more on Andre Carson from The National Review:

In Indiana, Democratic representative André Carson has received almost $34,000 from Islamist sources for his congressional runs since 2008. In contrast, his Republican opponent this November, newcomer Catherine Ping, has received not a dime from them. That’s the same Carson who appeared at the 2012 annual ICNA–MAS convention, where he encouraged American schools to look “at the model we have in our madrassas, . . . where the foundation is the (Koran).”

Here is more from Fox News about another personal scandal surrounding the Pakistani brothers showing that these guys are up their ears in suspicious dealings, and have been for years:

But other troubling allegations have surfaced. Police in January were called to the northern Virginia home of a woman identified in the incident report as the stepmother of the Awan brothers, as first reported by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The woman alleged the brothers were keeping her away from her dying husband. Abid Awan told police her bedside visits were causing their father additional stress and that he had full power of attorney over him, then produced “an unsigned, undated document as proof.”

A family member told a foundation reporter that the stepsons had kept the women in a “sort of illegal captivity” from October 2016 apparently until their father’s death in early February in a plot to get his life-insurance money. And they threatened her in an effort to get money that their father had stashed in Pakistan, the family member said.

The Daily Caller story said the stepmother has filed a separate police complaint alleging insurance fraud.

…But Awan also had money troubles, contributing to concerns about the contractors’ access to sensitive emails and how that could be used. Awan declared bankruptcy in 2012 with more than $1.1 million in debt.

This is also very troubling. And so if he declared bankruptcy back in 2012, how did he get a job working for a congressional committee involved in national security? Where was the background check? After all people with financial problems specifically are supposed to be kept out of sensitive jobs for fear that they will sell valuable data to solve their money woes.

We should all pray that an investigation will expose this case, but we can be sure that Democrats will stonewall it. After all Democrats are experts at not vetting Muslims, whether they fly in from a terrorist nation or work on sensitive information in Washington, DC.
