Shocking and disgusting, someone needs to stop this deal of immunity for Awan. He will say little and get away with security fraud, data theft, and financial theft.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DNC Chair, kept the Pakistani Brothers and their wives on the payroll for 9 months AFTER it became clear he was stealing data. SICK!
So for all the claims of “Russian Hacking” the real hackers were allowed to run free for years.
The Department of Justice said it “found no evidence that [Imran] illegally removed House data from the House network or from House Members’ offices, stole the House Democratic Caucus Server, stole or destroyed House information technology equipment, or improperly accessed or transferred government information.”
That statement appears to take issue — without explaining how — with the findings of the House’s Nancy Pelosi-appointed inspector general, its top law enforcement official, the sergeant-at-arms, and the statements of multiple Democratic aides.
In September 2016, the House Office of Inspector General gave House leaders a presentation that alleged that Alvi, Imran, brothers Abid Awan and Jamal Awan, and a friend were logging into the servers of members who had previously fired him and funneling data off the network. It said evidence “suggests steps are being taken to conceal their activity” and that their behavior mirrored a “classic method for insiders to exfiltrate data from an organization.”
Server logs show, it said, that Awan family members made “unauthorized access” to congressional servers in violation of House rules by logging into the servers of members who they didn’t work for.
Prior to her appointment to the District Court, she was a partner at law firm Boies Schiller & Flexner (BSF) where she represented scandal-plagued biotechnology company Theranos – which hired Fusion GPS to threaten the news media. Because of this, Chutkan had to recuse herself from two cases involving Fusion GPS.
Meanwhile, BSF attorney and crisis management expert Karen Dunn – who prepped Hillary Clinton for debates and served as Associate White House Counsel to Obama – represents Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Another BSF attorney, Dawn Smalls, was John Podesta’s assistant while he was Obama’s Chief of Staff. And if you still had doubts over their politics, BSF also republished an article critical of Donald Trump in their “News & Events” section.
In short, the Judge in the Awan case – appointed by Obama after years of contributing to him, was a partner at a very Clinton-friendly law firm. It should also be noted that Obama appointed Chutkan’s husband, Peter Krauthammer, to the D.C. Superior Court in 2011.
