Here we go again! The lead suspect in a criminal probe into breaches of the House of Representative information security systems, Imran Awan, had in his possession the password to an iPad used by then-Democratic National Committee Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Why does this matter? Because he was in possession of this password when the DNC emails were given to the whistleblower organization, Wikileaks.
Uh Debbie? I thought it was the Russians?
Oh, I guess not. Just more leftist spin to avoid being accountable for their actions. Imran and several of his family members ALL worked as IT professions for various members of Congress. ALL have been banned from the House and their network as of Feb. 2, 2017, by the House Sergeant at Arms. Despite the incident causing Wasserman Schultz to resigned the DNC post in the wake of the scandal, she has declined to fire Imran and actively circumvented the ban by having him “advise” her office.
Imran is now shown as employed by Debbie at her House office in Florida funded by the American taxpayers. Imran is still on a first-name basis with the top DNC staff, mixed DNC, House and campaign business. He joined Wasserman Schultz payroll in 2005 along with 4 of his relatives and 1 of his friends. Over the last six years, Imran has worked for some 80 members of Congress, ALL Democrats, including members of the homeland security, foreign affairs, and intelligence committees, usually for multiple members at one time since full time IT services were not needed for any one office.
Regarding the iPad in question, Garret Bonosky, deputy director of the DNC, wrote in a May 4, 2016, email: “Amy — I will call you shortly. I have to get this iPad thing figured out. Need to make sure I have her username and password.”
The response came from DNC Assistant to the Chair Amy Kroll: “I do not have access to her ipad password, but Imran does.”
Bonosky replied: “Just gave AK the cell phone for Imran.”
Kroll responded: “Just spoke to Imran, call me whenever GB and I’ll update you.”
Then beginning on July 26, 2016, Wikileaks began publishing the emails, stating –
“44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments from the top of the U.S. Democratic National Committee … The leaks come from the accounts of seven key figures in the DNC.”
Former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile insisted that the emails were a work of fiction after the emails were made public then changed her story to toe the Democrats party line of –
“The Russians made me do it!”
Except, Imran is Muslim by way of Pakistan.
FBI Director James Comey said, according to The Hill, the FBI requested access to the DNC servers to find the person responsible. The DNC refused.
Wasserman Schultz is believed to have a friendly relationship with Imran and his wife according to Politico. However, according to the House authorities investigating this matter, there is a secret server funneling congressional data off-site. Imran is also suspected of stealing money, including taxpayer funds, to the tune of about $5 million and equipment.
According to computer security experts, the most common security threat comes from someone that has abused a position of trust, manipulating someone using “social engineering” to gain access.
According to the Daily Caller –
Earlier this year, the brothers were accused of using high-tech listening devices against their own stepmom as part of a scheme to ensure that she didn’t stop them from accessing money stashed in Pakistan under their father’s name. A relative said they threatened to have the woman’s loved ones in Pakistan kidnapped if she didn’t give them power of attorney to access assets stored in their dying father’s name.
Their stepmother called the Fairfax County, Virginia police shortly before the Capitol Police disclosed the individuals as targets of the investigation.
According to an email that went out to Bonosky and other DNC staffers on May 12, 2016, Rosalyn Kumar, a Wasserman Schultz staffer wrote: “Pelosi is doing a closed door meeting. No staff or anyone allowed. Kaitlyn come to Rayburn room and get her iPad for Imran.”
As the IT employees who set up user accounts, they had superuser privileges with the ability to read and access any emails and/or files saved on the computers of any of the House members’ offices.
In addition to their theft of information, money, and equipment, it is believed that Imran and his comrades were also running an LLC or Limited Liability Corporation under the name “CIA.” CIA is believed to be a car dealership racking up massive debts and accusations of fraud that took out a $100,000 loan from Dr. Ali Al-Attar, an Iranian-Iraqi who is a fugitive from U.S. authorities with links to the terror group – Hezbollah. The money was never repaid.
It is a giant cluster of Democratic sized proportions and the mess can be laid squarely at the feet of these open borders and immigration policies of the Democrats and the refusal to act in any sort of circumspect or careful manner when it comes to doing the jobs they were elected to do for the American people.
