While the liberal mainstream media has been ignoring the story of the Awan brothers, the Pakistani brothers have been embroiled in a criminal investigation by the FBI and Capitol Hill police. Although charges have yet to be filed over alleged fraud and blackmail, the evidence of corruption is overwhelming.
Pakistani IT specialists, the Awan brothers have worked for more than 30 Democrats in both the House and Senate- including Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. As the scandal has grown in scope and depth, questions have arisen concerning what data the Awan brothers had access to, and who they shared it with.
It has come to light that the Awan brothers were tasked to work on a collection of hard drives owned by Wasserman-Schultz, hard drives which have been found smashed and concealed, in an Awan-owned property.
Imran Awan has been desperately trying to get the hard drives back from federal custody, according to one source cited by the Daily Caller. The source confirmed that the FBI has conducted a criminal probe into what they call potential violations of the House IT network. These violations would have been perpetrated by the Awan brothers during their tenure as IT aides for Wasserman-Schultz.
The hard drives were first discovered by a Marine veteran after renting a house in Lorton, Virginia that was owned by the Awan brothers. After he moved in, the former Marine found abandoned computer components, a large portion of which had been destroyed. He called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and Capital Police sent investigators to examine the scene.
The marine said the equipment appeared to be government issue. That, he said, is why he alerted the authorities. Otherwise, he would have been more likely to assume it was just abandoned junk.
Wasserman-Schultz was, of course, disgraced during the 2016 presidential election after resigning in the wake of an election scandal after which she was promptly brought into the Clinton Campaign team. From there she was closely tied to the strange turn around of Bernie Sanders, who went from condemning Hilary Clinton as a hawk and a criminal to endorsing her practically overnight. Wasserman-Schultz was also involved in another DNC hacking back in March, which has received very little press from the MSM. And in February, she threatened DC Capitol Police during a public hearing saying there would be “consequences” unless the law enforcement agency stopped their investigation.
The biggest stand out about these recovered hard drives and all of the DNC computer-related criminal activity is the high nature of the crimes combined with the very primitive attempt at a cover up. In this case alone, the half-baked attempt to destroy evidence is startlingly amateurish. It would seem that even a high school student would know that a hard drive can have its entire history read by competent investigators and that the only way to make these drives unreadable would be to either melt them completely or to cook them in a microwave oven, which would destroy the data.
But all of this comes at a strange time for the Democratic Party, which seems to have finally realized that it has been pursuing losing tactics over the past year and a half.
Politicians and left leaning pundits have begun to condemn the “always Trump, never positive” plan of action that they have been following all this time. Democrats are starting to talk about economics- almost taking a page out of Donald Trump’s campaign play book in an attempt to attract some of the middle American demographic that the Democratic party threw overboard in the 1970s.
It would seem that the monotony of the Russian collusion narrative, the flatness of the accusations against Donald Trump Jr. and the meteoric downsizing of major media outlets like CNN and the New York Times has finally convinced the left and their assets that they can only hurt themselves by going further down that road.
This week Congressman David Cicilline appeared on the Tucker Carlson show to talk about his “A Better Deal” idea which is meant to be a modern version of the popular New Deal of the last century. While it lacks substance and is riddled with leniency for illegal aliens, it still seems to represent a new angle for the Democratic Party.
It would seem this could be an attempt to deflect from the left’s tone deafness and criminality. However, judging by their usual inability to execute, we fully expect the diversion to fail.
