    The IT Guy and Wasserman Schultz

    In 2016, the Awans caught the eye of congressional investigators. The initial allegations, contained in presentations by the House inspector general, did not look good. Rosiak, who obtained a PowerPoint summary of the presentations, reported that the Awans “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.” “Excessive logons are an indication that the server is being used for nefarious purposes,” the IG presentation said, “and elevated the risk that individuals could be reading and/or removing information.” Investigators also discovered that the Awan group had logged on to one Democratic Caucus server 5,735 times over the course of seven months. The networks that the Awans were accessing don’t hold classified information, but they do hold lawmakers’ password-protected email, according to the Washington Post.

    The House’s chief administrative officer told lawmakers this April that the IG had also uncovered “evidence of procurement fraud.” The Awans had manipulated invoices for expensive equipment into incremental payments of less than $500. This allowed the purchases to be “left off the official House inventory,” according to the Post, which also reported that this equipment was sometimes delivered to the Awans’ homes.

    The matter was passed on to Capitol Police and the FBI in October 2016 and is ongoing. Gowen rejects the basis for the investigation, which he says is politically motivated and grew out of the IG report on shared employees. “The right-wing media and a few members of Congress blew this up and got the FBI’s attention, got the U.S. attorney’s attention,” he says. “They started this giant investigation that’s probably the most thorough, exhaustive investigation in the history of this country probably. Or close to it.” The available clips of the IG report, he added, have been “taken out of context.” “There’s multiple logins because they shared a workstation,” he notes. “They worked for separate offices so you have to log in to one office, then when you switch to do a different assignment for the other office, you log in to that office.”



    The IT Guy and Wasserman Schultz
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    DWS needs to go to prison, perhaps be executed, for this. She certainly knew about this, and if she didn't she should swing for epic stupidity.

    Saying we are a country of "Immigrants" is an insult to our ancestors.
