Several Democratic Congressmen and women hired a Pakistani immigrant to take care of their IT needs. Imran Awan, his two brothers, their wives, and a friend were all put on the House payroll.
It was discovered that Awan and his crew were accessing Congressional networks and documents without permission. Not only that, but classified documents had been copied and stored in an unsecure, off-site server!
Awan’s group was suspected of stealing computer and network hardware as well.
The FBI recently recovered several smashed hard drives, network routers, and laptops from a home formerly occupied by Awan and his group.
Awan had tried to remove the stolen computer hardware from the house after it had already been rented to a Marine veteran and his US Navy wife.
Awan was so desperate, he hired a lawyer to help retrieve the stolen items!
“Their lawyer contacted us today via email and said we owed $350 in late charges and the items he left in the house,” the Marine said.
“It was unbelievable. I don’t know where they get off thinking they’re going to sue us for items we have no obligation to hold onto,” he said.
The Democrats as well as the liberal mainstream media aren’t making much of a fuss over this.
Conservative Tribune reports:
If the last year has taught us anything, it’s that Democrats have a real problem with information security.
In a complicated and growing scandal, federal investigators have seized smashed hard drives from a foreign-born technician connected to the Democratic National Committee.
While the details are still unraveling, the actions of that foreign technician reveal that fraud and possibly espionage could be part of the scheme.
