The Accidental Journalist: Part II — How To Catch A Spy

The Accidental Journalist: Part II — How To Catch A Spy: "The Awan brothers piece of the corruption saga begins in 2005 with a few Pakistani Muslim men in their early twenties who, with help from Debbie Wasserman Schultz, find their way into jobs on Capitol Hill in the Congressional IT department, ultimately working for a total of 31 Democratic Congressmen. Despite links to Hezbollah, the Awans were given top secret security clearances issued directly by the Obama White House (which gave them access to our nation’s most sensitive information), and salaries two to three times those of their office peers despite a rare presence in the office. Fast forward to February 2017 when, after bringing several more Awan family members onto the Congressional IT payroll, a string of houses, failed car dealerships, a computer hardware business, numerous bankruptcies, and a police report filed against them by their stepmother that includes accusations of spying, threats and being held captive, the Awan brothers were abruptly fired for . . . hacking Congressional computers. Shortly thereafter, they became suspects in 20 Congressional office break-ins whereby computers and hard drives were stolen and, in a move reminiscent of the scandal around Huma Abedin’s laptop, the Awans were forwarding everything they could access to an offsite server. Stunningly, no arrests have been made and the brothers appear to have fled home to Pakistan."
