Three Muslim brothers, Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan, who were fired for accessing their Democrat employers information without authorization have been fired, but the questions relating to who they actually were, why they had such high-level access (one of them is only 22), and why they were each paid over $160,000 per year remains a mystery.
The brothers did IT work for at least 27 Congress Democrats. One of the brothers has a criminal record, and the others appear to be involved in dodgy mortgage fraud adventures. The Pakistani-born trio are thought to have stolen vast amounts of sensitive data (including from the House Select Committee), and as yet, this data has not been leaked to the press, fuelling speculation that they were, in reality, working for either “foreign actors” or possibly even terrorist fronts.
When this is added to the speculation around the suspicious death of Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr. who was assigned to the Miami Justice Department to investigate the brothers, things appear to a cleanup operation to hide negligence among Congress leaders.
The reality of this situation is that three brothers were hired, overpaid, and allowed access to top-secret information, but they were NEVER VETTED properly! This is a huge scandal that is being ignored by the MSM, who would rather focus on almost anything that can detract from President Trump.
B…b…but the Russians!
Maria Bartiromo goes NUTS on Varney and Company!
Here is the transcript of Maria’s incredible and under-reported story to Stuart Varney:
3 Congressional IT employees have been fired for accessing members computer networks without permission. Maria’s on the show, knows more about this. Can you fill me in a bit.
Here are their names Stuart. let me tell you what the 3 people that were fired on Thursday: Abid, Imran and Jamal Awan. They were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives on Thursday because they accessed Congressmen and Congress people’s computer networks unauthorized. At a minimum they were fired. At a minimum we know that they accessed computers unauthorized and they did so in foreign intelligence, foreign affairs and intelligence committees. Okay? So they were getting very important information, government information. They accessed these computers. That is the least of it. There’s also some talk that people are looking into what ties they have into terrorism. Are they impacted by the Muslim Brotherhood? Are they a part of the Muslim Brotherhood? One of them has a criminal background!
How is it possible that 3 brothers are hired, Muslim brothers…just saying, to work in Congress and deal with our most intelligent and sensitive information, number one? They were all making $160,000! Why were they paid so much? 22 years old…one of the guys, the other was 25. They’re making $160,000, $161,000 and $165,000. And one of them has a criminal background!
I hear what you’re saying, I mean, these intelligence committees handle our terror strategies right?
They got in on Benghazi by the way.
Yes, and they also worked for many Democrats in the House.
They are thinking that they may be also one of the reasons Debbie Wasserman Schultz got hacked.
There’s so much more to come on this Stuart, it’s an incredible story. I think it’s amazing!
Chiefs of staff for dozens of Democratic lawmakers who employed the four were informed last week that a criminal probe was underway into their use of congressional information technology systems, including the existence of an external server to which House data was being funneled, and into the theft of and overbilling for computer equipment.
Were Democrat lawmakers blinded by how “diverse” they were being when taking on this group; congratulating themselves on how “color-blind” they were? Or were they just ignorant and blind?
The amount of scandals, frauds and suspicious cash activities these people were involved in should have set alarm bells ringing before they were even hired, but apparently not. The safety and security of this country, apparently does not mean very much to the Dems (and with Clinton’s habit of using open email systems, who knows what sensitive information was either sold or given away).
The group has since been found to have been involved in numerous mortgage scams, debt-evasion and have even been accused of outright theft by business associates. These are criminals who use every loophole to avoid the law and continue with their nefarious activities.
The criminal probe now under way in the Democrat offices will undoubtedly not lead to any negligence charges, nor sanctions. But it is clear that those using the group for work were negligent. Failing to run proper security checks on your staff (especially those that might come into contact with sensitive information) is step number one of being in any position of power…and they failed.
“My spouse and I are legally separated under applicable non-bankruptcy law or my spouse and I are living apart other than for the purpose of evading the requirements of § 707(b)(2)(A) of the Bankruptcy Code,” Abid claimed in bankruptcy documents. But both houses had been in the family for years.
