More DNC Corruption? FBI Takes Smashed Hard Drives

Written by Joe Scudder

The FBI has grabbed the smashed hard drives of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT Administrator.

There are all sorts of weird coincidences surrounding the smashed hard drives of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s IT person. The most obvious one is that Team Clinton smashed devices to hide information too. Is this now a DNC trend?

Another coincidence is that this IT administrator is originally from Pakistan. What are the odds that people from Muslim majority countries would be in high positions with Democrats? Why would both Hillary Clinton (with Huma Abedeen) and Debbie Wasserman Schultz both have such people so close to them? And if people of foreign Muslim origin are over-represented, what is the explanation for that?

The Daily Caller reports, “EXCLUSIVE: FBI Seized Smashed Hard Drives from Wasserman Schultz IT Aide’s Home.

FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation.

Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, an individual whom FBI investigators interviewed in the case told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

An additional source in Congress with direct knowledge of the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.

Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.

Awan’s younger brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife, Hina Alvi, and Rao Abbas, Imran’s best friend, are also under investigation. There have been no arrests in the case.

There is also evidence of financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan, where Imran spends significant portions of the year.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said in March that the Capitol Police are “getting the kind of technical assistance they need to do that. This is under an active criminal investigation, their capabilities are pretty strong but, they’re also able to go and get the kind of help they need from other sources.”

The brothers’ stepmother independently filed court documents in Virginia accusing the brothers of wiretapping and extorting her.

Soon after Imran began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, his two brothers and two of their wives — plus Abbas and another friend — began appearing as IT staffers on the payrolls of other House Democrats. Collectively, the Awan group has been paid $4 million since 2009.
