Over a year ago, Democratic Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz was part of a massive scandal which threatened the security of the nation.
Wasserman Schultz’s aide, Imran Awan, not only had unauthorized access to many government servers, but also reportedly stole some key equipment.
Over a year later, more information is still being uncovered as to what the exact extent of his betrayal was–and the truth will shock you.
A key aspect of the Imran Awan case has been uncovered.
The Pakistani-born IT aide of former DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz took a laptop with username “RepDWS” after he was banned from the House computer network for “unauthorized access to data,”
Awan then left the laptop unattended in a phone booth with a letter to prosecutors.
The Daily Caller reported:
On Friday, President Donald Trump tweeted: “Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC Server that they refused to give to the FBI, the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails.”
Trump appears to have accurately identified a key issue with the “Pakistani mystery man” that comes straight from court documents.
- Lawyers for Pakistani-born Imran Awan currently have a copy of the contents of a laptop with the username RepDWS
- Wasserman Schultz wanted to block prosecutors from seeing what was on it
- Imran’s lawyers have attempted to set up a situation where it is up to Imran whether prosecutors can see the laptop, claiming “attorney client privilege”
- Other analysts say the laptop should be fair game for review
Each twist has increased the intrigue:
- On Feb. 2, 2017, Imran was banned from the House computer network for making “unauthorized access” to congressional data, according to the House inspector general
- This happened not long after Wasserman Schultz was fired from the DNC after a cyber breach, yet she refused to fire Imran or even put him on paid leave, claiming that an IT aide didn’t need to access the internet to do his job
- Wasserman Schultz’s refusal to fire him meant he had continued physical access to the congressional office buildings, even though all of his other part-time employers fired him and he knew there was an ongoing criminal investigation
- On April 5, 2017, despite not being allowed to connect to the House network, he was in possession of a laptop with the username RepDWS and left it in a phone booth, where it was picked up by police who confiscated it because they recognized that it was left there by a criminal suspect
Let that sink in. A Pakistani IT aide, who had just been fired by all his other employers for being a suspected hacker, left a laptop with the username pDWS in a phone booth. The laptop was placed next to a letter to prosecutors. What it said is not publicly known. The cache of documents also included copies of Awan’s ID (which assured that police tied the laptop to a criminal suspect and seized it as evidence rather than returning it as lost property) and a note that said “attorney client privilege,” which put the laptop into legal limbo.
It is unknown why the laptop was left in a phone booth as the contents of the letters are also unknown.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s reaction just adds further to the mystery.
Wasserman Schultz used a hearing later that month which was intended to discuss Capitol Police’s budget to threaten Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa with “consequences” if he didn’t return what was described as a “character’s equipment.”
When that didn’t work, she used campaign funds to hire a lawyer to keep the laptop out of prosecutors’ hands.
Do you believe this information proves Debbie Wasserman Schultz is guilty of colluding with Imran Awan?
