The saga of Imran Awan, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz staffer who was indictedalong with his wife in August on four counts, including bank fraud and making false statements, took a more sinister turn on Wednesday, as reports surfaced that the laptop Schultz has been desperately trying to keep prosecutors from examining was planted in a tiny room by someone who left a note for the U.S. attorney.

That someone could have been Awan, who wanted police to find the laptop, which had the user name “RepDWS” listed.

There have been suspicions regarding Wasserman Schultz for months; after revelations of Awan’s criminality surfaced at the beginning of February, most of the legislators employing him fired him within weeks, but Wasserman Schultz did not fire him until after he was arrested on July 25 at Dulles International Airport while trying to flee to Pakistan.

U.S. Capitol Police found the laptop after midnight April 6, 2017, in the tiny room that formerly served as a phone booth in the Rayburn House Office Building, as a Capitol Police report stated. The laptop was accompanied by a Pakistani ID card, copies of Awan’s driver’s license and congressional ID badge, and letters to the U.S. attorney. A notebook found with the laptop had notes regarding “attorney-client privilege.”

As The Daily Caller pointed out, the room where the laptop was found is “a place Awan would have had no reason to go because Wasserman Schultz’s office is in the Longworth building and the other members who employed him had fired him.”

On May 18, 2017, Wasserman Schultz threatened Chief Matthew Verderosa after he stated he might not be able to return the laptop to her. She insisted that if a member of Congress lost their equipment, it should be returned. When Verderosa replied that there could be extenuating circumstances if the laptop was connected to a suspect, she warned, “I think you’re violating the rules when you conduct your business that way, and you should expect that there will be consequences.”

On August 3, Wasserman Schultz said she was only attempting to protect Awan, adding, “This was not my laptop. I have never seen that laptop. I don’t know what’s on the laptop.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert, (R-TX) told The Daily Caller News Foundation, “Imran Awan is a calculating person who made great efforts to cover his tracks, both electronically and physically. Placing that laptop with his personal documents, which may well incriminate him, those he worked for, or both, in the dead of night in a House office building, was a deliberate act by a cunning suspect, and it needs to be investigated.”

And nothing will happen, well something will happen, the democrats will say that it's illegally acquired evidence, they know nothing about him, he din-do-nuffin, the FBI is islamaphobic racists, he was a good boy, Debby kike-cunt is innocent of everything because trump is misogynistic/racist/not my president, Hillary is a saint there was no shenanigans Bernie lost fair and square, the attorney general was just chatting with the former president and the husband of someone facing indictment for treason were just talking about grandkids and yoga class...

Nothing to see here except Russians, misogyny, racists..... racists EVERYWHERE! And trump and all his deplorable followers are literally nazis

EXCLUSIVE: DWS IT Guy Was Banned From House After Trying To Hide Secret Server

A secret server is behind the Capitol Police’s decision to ban a former IT aide to Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz from the House network.

Now-indicted former congressional IT aide Imran Awan allegedly routed data from numerous House Democrats to a secret server. Police grew suspicious and requested a copy of the server early this year, but they were provided with an elaborate falsified image designed to hide the massive violations. The falsified image is what ultimately triggered their ban from the House network Feb. 2, according to a senior House official with direct knowledge of the investigation.

The secret server was connected to the House Democratic Caucus, an organization chaired by then-Rep. Xavier Becerra. Police informed Becerra that the server was the subject of an investigation and requested a copy of it. Authorities considered the false image they received to be interference in a criminal investigation, the senior official said.

Data was also backed up to Dropbox in huge quantities, the official said. Congressional offices are prohibited from using Dropbox, so an unofficial account was used, meaning Awan could have still had access to the data even though he was banned from the congressional network.

Awan had access to all emails and office computer files of 45 members of Congress who are listed below. Fear among members that Awan could release embarrassing information if they cooperated with prosecutors could explain why the Democrats have refused to acknowledge the cybersecurity breach publicly or criticize the suspects.

House Democrats employed Awan and four family members for years as IT aides. After learning of the House probe, Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, frantically transferred money to accounts in their native Pakistan.

Awan and Alvi were indicted in August on fraud charges related to the transfers, but they have not yet been charged with criminal cybersecurity violations partly because some of the 45 Democrats have been passive about helping build the case, the House official said.

Each House member’s data is supposed to be stored on his own server, but Imran moved files to a computer that was only supposed to hold the files of the administrative office of the Democratic Caucus, the senior official said.

In the spring of 2016, House administrators became aware that the Awans were allegedly falsifying purchase orders. They followed the trail and found that the misconduct extended to a major cybersecurity breach.

On Jan. 24, 2017, Becerra vacated his congressional seat to become California’s attorney general. “He wanted to wipe his server, and we brought to his attention it was under investigation. The light-off was we asked for an image of the server, and they deliberately turned over a fake server,” the senior official said.

“They were using the House Democratic Caucus as their central service warehouse … It was a breach. The data was completely out of [the members’] possession. Does it mean it was sold to the Russians? I don’t know,” the senior official said.

Capitol Police considered the image a sign that the Awans knew exactly what they were doing and were going to great lengths to try to cover it up, the senior official said. The House Sergeant-at-Arms banned them from the network as a result.

The senior official said the data was also funneled offsite via a Dropbox account, from which copies could easily be downloaded. Authorities could not immediately shut down the account when the Awans were banned from the network because it was not an official account.

“For members to say their data was not compromised is simply inaccurate. They had access to all the data including all emails. Imran Awan is the walking example of an insider threat, a criminal actor who had access to everything,” the senior official said.

The executive director of the Democratic Caucus was Sean McCluskie, who was Becerra’s chief of staff and is now chief deputy attorney general of California. McCluskie did not return TheDCNF’s repeated requests for comment.

Despite Democrats’ acute awareness of the importance of cybersecurity after the Democratic National Committee’s emails appeared on Wikileaks in July 2016, the employing members have gone to great lengths to avoid condemning Awan or have said nothing about whether they checked their office data’s security following the breach.

“After being notified by the House Administration Committee, this individual was removed from our payroll. We are confident that everything in our office is secure,” a spokesman for Michigan Democratic Rep. Sander Levin told TheDCNF in February. Levin’s chief of staff Nick Gwyn refused this week to square the assessment with the secret server and Dropbox arrangement.

A spokesman for Ohio Democratic Rep. Marcia Fudge said in August that she terminated Awan after learning of the criminal investigation but claimed “there’s no indication that he stole information or did anything inappropriate.” Fudge’s spokesman would not clarify the August statement this week.

Since Fudge and other members have not acknowledged that the breach occurred, there is no reason to think they took action to investigate where their data might have gone and mitigate any harm to constituents and others.

Wasserman Schultz has acknowledged that chiefs of staff were informed that the Awans were under investigation for what she characterized as “data transfer violations.” She refused to fire Awan even after he was banned from touching official computers, and she used a May 17, 2017, budget hearing with the House Chief Administrative Officer to attack authorities for not stopping her from breaking the Dropbox rule.

“I am more than happy to admit that I use Dropbox. I have used it for years and years and years. It is not blocked. I am fully able to use it,” she said. Administrators told her they had clearly communicated the rules to IT aides, but instead of faulting Awan for not following them, Wasserman Schultz lashed out at the House for “just lobbing e-mail into a tech person’s inbox.”

The senior official said the Awans’ enterprise-scale use of Dropbox was not the casual use of a popular consumer application, but the funneling of huge quantities of data offsite where it could not be taken back by House authorities.

Becerra was one of five members who first hired Awan in 2004, his first year on the Hill. Only two of the five — Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York and Becerra — remained in office through 2016, and each of them later put two of Awan’s relatives on their payrolls as well, including his wife Alvi and brother Abid.

When Becerra became chairman of the Democratic Caucus in 2013, that office began paying Alvi $25,000 to $30,000 a year in addition to the payments from Becerra’s personal office, meaning he was responsible for far more of the payments to the Awan family than any other member.

Ex-Dem IT aide Imran Awan could flee to Pakistan if restrictions lifted, DOJ warns

By Brooke Singman | Fox News
Feds arrest Debbie Wasserman Schultz's former IT staffer

Daily Caller investigative reporter Luke Rosiak shares details

The Justice Department warned Monday that ex-Capitol Hill IT aide Imran Awan is a “flight risk” and could flee to Pakistan if a judge approves his request to lift “all of the conditions of his release.”

U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu filed a motion before the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, urging the court to deny the request from Awan, who is facing fraud and other charges.

Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is currently enrolled in the High Intensity Supervision Program (HISP) with conditions that he abide by an electronically monitored curfew of 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. and a limit on traveling beyond 150 miles from his residence, according to court documents. Awan and his attorney want to lift those conditions, including the electronic monitoring bracelet.

Federal prosecutors warned this could give Awan an opening.

“While the government possesses Awan’s Pakistani passport, nothing prevents him from obtaining a new Pakistani passport at the Embassy in D.C. That passport would permit Awan to board a flight and leave the country at any time,” the motion read. “The government asserts that Awan is a flight risk and that his participation in HISP is by far the least restrictive condition that can be imposed on him to ensure his return to Court.”

FORMER DEM IT STAFFER STRIKES DEAL TO RETURN FROM PAKISTAN AND FACE CHARGES IN US

The motion pointed to Awan’s “strong ties” to property in Pakistan, and the fact that Awan has transferred money to Pakistan that suggests he can “clearly maintain a life in that country.”

Awan’s attorney slammed the Justice Department’s statement as purely “political.”

“It is a complete impossibility for Mr. Awan to get another passport, his entire life is here, he has no plans to leave,” Awan’s attorney Christopher Gowen told Fox News in an email Monday. “His wife an children are here, his wife is also charged in this case, and in fact has more charges and the government has no issue with her not being on GPS.”

Gowen added: “The government’s opposition to our motion is solely for political purposes.”

Awan pleaded not guilty in September to multiple federal charges including bank fraud and conspiracy. A grand jury had returned an indictment in August charging Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, with a total of four charges.

The indictment for Awan and his wife suggested the couple allegedly engaged in a conspiracy to obtain home equity lines of credit from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by giving false information about two properties – and then sending the proceeds to individuals in Pakistan.

Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats had been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., kept him on until his arrest in July.

Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia, as he attempted to board a flight to Pakistan. At the time, Gowen told Fox News that federal authorities have no evidence of misconduct by Awan relating to his IT duties.

Liu’s latest motion said “the government opposes [Awan’s] request” to lift the conditions of his release, citing Alvi’s May trip to Pakistan.

“Alvi departed abruptly with her two children to Pakistan …Alvi only returned to the United States after the government arrested her husband, thereby preventing him from joining his wife and children in Pakistan,” the motion read, also pointing to Awan’s attempt to leave the U.S. for Pakistan before he was arrested.

Fox News' Alex Pappas and Jake Gibson contributed to this report.

UPDATE!
http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/16/h...unauthorized-access-to-congressional-servers/
House investigators concluded that Democratic IT aides made unauthorized access to congressional servers in 2016, allegedly accessing the data of members for whom they did not work, logging in as members of Congress themselves, and covering their tracks, according to a presentation summarizing the findings of a four-month internal probe.

Their behavior mirrored a “classic method for insiders to exfiltrate data from an organization,” and they continued even after orders to stop, the briefing materials allege. There are indications that numerous members’ data may have been secretly residing not on their designated servers, but instead aggregated onto one server, according to the briefing and other sources. Authorities said that the entire server was then physically stolen.

When acting on the findings, Democratic leadership appear to have misrepresented the issue to their own members as solely a matter of theft, a comparison of the investigators’ findings with Democrats’ recollections and a committee’s public statement shows, leading 44 Democrats to not conduct protective measures typically taken after a breach — including informing constituents whose personal information may have been exposed. (A list of the involved members is below.)

The presentation, written by the House’s Office of the Inspector General, reported under the bold heading “UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS” that “5 shared employee system administrators have collectively logged into 15 member offices and the Democratic Caucus although they were not employed by the offices they accessed.”

It found indications that a House “server is being used for nefarious purposes and elevated the risk that individuals could be reading and/or removing information” and “could be used to store documents taken from other offices.” The server was that of the House Democratic Caucus, a sister group of the DNC that was run at the time by then-Rep. Xavier Becerra.

The aides named are Imran Awan, his wife Hina Alvi, his brothers Abid and Jamal, and his friend Rao Abbas, Pakistani-born aides whose lives are filled with reason for concern. Abid’s Ukranian wife Natalia Sova and Haseeb Rana were also involved in the Awans’ activities but departed the House payroll prior to the investigation.

One systems administrator “logged into a member’s office two months after he was terminated from that office,” the investigative summary says.

While the rules could have been violated for some innocuous purpose, the presentation indicates that is unlikely: “This pattern of login activity suggests steps are being taken to conceal their activity.”

A second presentation shows that shortly before the election, their alleged behavior got even worse. “During September 2016, shared employee continued to use Democratic Caucus computers in anomalous ways:

  • Logged onto laptop as system administrator
  • Changed identity and logged onto Democratic Caucus server using 17 other user account credentials
  • Some credentials belonged to Members
  • The shared employee did not work for 9 of the 17 offices to which these user accounts belonged.”
The investigation found “possible storage of sensitive House information outside the House … Dropbox is installed on two Caucus computers used by the shared employees. Two user accounts had thousands of files in their Dropbox folder on each computer.” Using Dropbox is against House rules because it uploads files offsite.

This story has never been a story with the media. This should be front page type stuff but if you go on any of the sites like usatoday you can not find it. Any normal rational person needs to ask themselves why. How is it possible a story this explosive(potentially) is ignored.

I would love to know what these towel head fucks know. They have to have dirt on a ton of people to be this ignored. We already know politicians use their email and computers for everything thinking it is completely safe and it is if you use your own server. Please spill the beans before an unfortunate mishap to your life

http://dailycaller.com/2018/02/27/hina-alvi-imran-awan-leave-the-country/
In March 2017, FBI agents were tailing House of Representatives IT aides suspected of hacking Congress, and apprehended one at the airport trying to make a hasty exit to Pakistan. She refused to speak with them, and a search revealed that she was carrying an apparently illegal amount of cash.

The FBI allowed Hina Alvi, wife of Imran Awan, to board the plane anyway — then filed paperwork saying agents believed she had no intention of returning to the U.S.

For nearly a year since, the case has lingered despite the House Office of Inspector General (OIG) determining that the family of Pakistanis made “unauthorized access” to Congress’s data shortly before the election.
The OIG alleged Imran Awan and his family members logged into servers of congressmen for whom they did not work, logged in using members’ personal usernames, covered their tracks, and continued to access data after they’d been fired.

Though the findings place the case squarely into the category of political cyber-crimes that have otherwise been high-profile priorities, the lead FBI agent assigned to the Awan case was a first-year agent, and not from one of the FBI’s big-guns divisions. The charges brought by prosecutors are so minor that Awan’s own lawyer speculated they could be a “placeholder” for future charges.

Former U.S. attorney Andrew McCarthy observed that prosecutors waited until Alvi left the country to indict her — even though the alleged fraud occurred weeks before she left.

“The office is low-keying the Awan prosecution,” McCarthy wrote. “The indictment itself is drawn very narrowly. All four charges flow from a financial-fraud conspiracy of short duration. Only Imran Awan and his wife are named as defendants. There is no reference to Awan family perfidy in connection with the House communications system.”

(The IG report named others as suspects: brothers Abid and Jamal Awan and friend Rao Abbas. None has been charged with any crimes.)

The indictment also made no mention of the airport encounters. “Did prosecutors fail to mention the flight evidence in hope of diverting attention from the government’s decision to let Alvi flee?” McCarthy asked. “Again, one would hope not; but if not, what could the explanation be?”

The IG report called attention to suspicions that multiple members’ data was being funneled onto one server — that of the House Democratic Caucus. The entire server was physically stolen soon after, three senior government officials said.

That should have set the nation’s primary law enforcement and intelligence bodies into full gear, Sharkey said. “I cannot fathom that there’s not some major investigation going on. It’s outrageous the things that have happened in this case,” he said.

Raise your hand if you are surprised. It is apparent that Comey and his cronies were for some time political and in the pocket of Obama/Clinton. I am sure this is not the first time they used this method to get the goods on people in their own party to control them. What ever other they wanted or got who knows but dws ran this operation(what better Clinton operative). There is no way the guy in custody ever spills the beans or him and his family will accidentally take a dirt nap.

I have no idea what side Sessions is on at this point but there should be at least 3 investigations not involving the fbi at this point. Maybe he has some going on we don’t know about or maybe he is part of the mess.

I had never read they caught the wife with all the money and then just let her leave. I knew she left but I had no idea the fbi knew about her shenanigans before they let her go. I also did not know they would put a rookie on this case concerning the info they could have. The unsurprising thing is how corrupt our agencies have become
