The FBI has joined Capitol Hill police in the investigation of Imran Awan, who along with other Pakistan relatives worked for top Democrats including U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette.

The FBI recovered smashed computer drives belonging to Awan, who is suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches, the Daily Caller reports.

Then THIS happened Monday night:



Awan worked for DeGette from 2009 through 2016 as well as a dozen other Democrats on key panels including Intelligence.

Awan as well as his brothers Abid and Jamal were already under a criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police on suspicion they abused their administrator-level access to sensitive congressional data and were fired in February.

The men also worked for U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and have been paid $4 million since 2009, the reports said.

It’s hard to say what this data breach means for Coloradans whose private information was at risk of access by the suspect gatekeepers. Very little of this scandal has been reported in the mainstream media, let alone investigated to determine the impact.

Observed one individual familiar with the investigation:

“If Donald Trump and the Republicans had hired foreign nationals to be their top IT guys and somehow their congressional files had been compromised, this would have been all over the news.”
