Scandal: 44 Democrats Let Pakistani IT Workers In Gov’t Job without Background Checks

Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller wants people to know there is indeed a collusion story in Washington that should have been a slam-dunk for prosecution over 18 months ago. It’s a story of illegal hacking, theft, and aiding and abetting hostile foreign entities. And the name Trump appears nowhere in the hundreds of pages of evidence he presents.

Eighteen months after the House of Representatives began to gather evidence showing conclusively that 44 House Democrats employed the Pakistani-born Awan family without background checks, there have been no formal charges. This was not an accidental oversight but rather a wholesale ignoring of standard government procedures that resulted in the theft of computer equipment, unauthorized access to sensitive government records, fraud, and host of other crimes.

According to Rosiak:

“House Democrats participated in an actual data breach conducted by Pakistani-nationals who were given access to highly sensitive intelligence as part of their duties providing IT support to members of Congress – and in particular, Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and Gregory Meeks (D-NY).

Not one of 44 House Democrats bothered with background checks for members of a close-knit group of Pakistani IT aides who ended up gaining “unauthorized access” to congressional data.”

Though House security rules are clear that House members must start a background check for employees, they are allowed to waive some of the procedure if another member of the House vouches for the person in question.

The background checks were waived for all five IT workers in the Awan family, who made headlines last year after the House inspector general filed a report that described activity by House members as “nefarious.”

Pakistan-born Imran Awan a tech aide in Congress for 13 years gained congressional IT jobs for his wife Hina Alvi, brothers Abid and Jamal, and his friend Rao Abbas. All with salaries as high as $165,000 annually. Abbas had no IT experience with his only job experiences being at a McDonald’s from which he was fire.

The group was caught logging into representatives’ accounts who had employed them, illegally using representatives’ private usernames, and uploading data from the House network.

Abid worked for Representative Yvette Clarke (Dem – NY) when $120,000 of computer equipment disappeared. Democratic Congressman Xavier Becerra, hired Imran who subsequently stole his computer – after the inspector general had listed it as evidence in an investigation.

A routine low-level background check on Abid or Imran would have revealed a number of red flags. Abid had at least three misdemeanors, a $1.1 million bankruptcy, and six lawsuits against him or his companies.

Imran had several vehicular crime misdemeanor convictions, had law enforcement called on him multiple times by three Muslim women, one of who was found bloodied and two of whom claimed they felt like slaves or as if they were in captivity. He also committed bank fraud on a home-equity loan.

Before being hired by House Democrats the Awans owned a used car dealership known as “CIA” that Judge Andrew Napolitano told Fox News had all the markings of a money laundering operation.

CIA’s “staff” used fake personalities on their Facebook Page including a photo taken from a hairstyle model catalog, and an image which came from a web page called “Beautiful Girls Wallpaper.”

The Awans allegedly borrowed, laundered and never repaid a $100,000 loan from a shady Iraqi expat physician with links to Hezbollah. Theo Deutch, a U.S. Congressman from Florida, paid a monthly salary to a man who threatened to sue the Awans

Ironically, Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Dem – FL) is championing tougher background checks for gun ownership but resisted firing Imran after he was denied access to the House computer servers. The former Democratic National Committee chairwoman suggested that the accusations against Imran were due to “Islamophobia.” She told reporters, “As a mother, a Jew, and a member of Congress, I stuck by him.”

Wayne Black – a private investigator who worked in Janet Reno’s Miami public corruption unit is baffled by Shultz’ and other House Democrats’ cavalier attitude considering the seriousness of these crimes. He said:

“Based on the modest way Awan was living …. he was sending most of his money to a group or criminal organization that could very well be connected with the Pakistani government … My instincts tell me Awan was probably operating a foreign intelligence gathering operation on US soil.”

We don’t need Robert Mueller to investigate this one.
