Rep. Steve King talked about the Breitbart New’s Whatever it Takes with Curt Schilling Wednesday. At the end of the discussion, they briefly addressed the arrest of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s IT tech, Imran Awan. He warned that facts are unclear at this point but it’s very suspicious.
“If the reports are right, if these three individuals…drew down, over this period of time, $4 million and Debbie Wasserman Schultz had a part-time employee who’s making $165,000 that she just fired – what – yesterday afternoon?” King mused with Schilling.
There are other reports of smashed computer hard-drives, desperate attempts to recover seized computer equipment and years of access to the computer systems of the House Democratic caucus. This needs investigation. The concern is that in addition to alleged theft and fraud, there is the possibility of spying and national security threats by the Pakistani family though there is no evidence of that yet. King said:
They had access to the information on the multiple clients that they had, and that number is nearly a score, as I recall, they would have had access to all the information that came through all those computers in all those offices and access to…all the communications of the foreign affairs committee.
“I think this could be an enourmous act of treason with a lot of people complicit,” Schilling said in reply.
Even if the Awans were thieves and not jihadists, which seems to be the case baring new information, the intel they had would be worth a great deal of money to radical jihadists.
We really need to investigate the Awans, the entire family. It’s also very strange that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz protected Imran to the day he was arrested.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC she led is being sued by a group of Bernie supporters for her apparent corruption of the primary. Her goal was to keep Bernie from becoming a serious contender. There are new accusations that Imran helped her in this escapade, including the voice modulation calls made frothier office to the lawyers in this suit.
A possible tie to the Muslim Brotherhood
One of the democratic congressional computers the Awans worked on was that of André Carson, a fairly radical Muslim member of Congress according to a number of reports. Frontpage Magazine made the connection which is indirect and could mean nothing but it should be looked into.
Eight members demanded and received access to top secret classified information: André Carson, Luis Guiterez, Jim Himes, Terri Sewell, Jackie Speier, Mike Quigley, Eric Swalwell and Patrick Murphy.
These are the sections of the Frontpage Mag report that make the links most interesting:
Carson had inherited his grandmother’s seat and exploited it to promote a radical Islamist agenda. He has interfaced with a laundry list of Islamist groups from CAIR to ISNA to ICNA to MPAC. Islamists have funded Carson’s career to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars. The Center for Security Policy has put together a dossier of Carson’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is the parent organization of many key Islamic terror groups posing a threat to our national security including Al Qaeda and Hamas.
Andre Carson shared the stage at a CAIR banquet with Sirraj Wahaj: an unindicted co-conspirator in the World Trade Center bombing who had once declared,” You don’t get involved in politics because it’s the American thing to do. You get involved in politics because politics are a weapon to use in the cause of Islam.” CAIR itself had been named an unindicted co-conspirator in terror finance.
Carson had praised Tariq Ramadan who had been barred from this country for funding Islamic terrorists. And the Muslim politician was a co-sponsor of the Free Syria Act which attempted to aid Islamist Jihadists in Syria linked to the Muslim Brotherhood such as the Free Syrian Army.
Imran Awan and his two brothers, Jamal and Abid, are at the center of an investigation that deals with, among other things, allegations of illegal access. They have been barred from the House of Representatives network.
A member of Congress expressed concern that, “they [the Awans] may have stolen data from us.”
If nothing else, he is a far-left member of the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Progressive Caucus. He has made some controversial statements:
In 2011, Carson told the Congressional Black Caucus that “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me hanging on a tree” and accused tea party members of creating “the effort that we’re seeing of Jim Crow.”
In 2012, HuffPo reported that Carson said, “America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Quran.”
Pamela Geller quoted him as saying, “9-11 Was Tough On Muslims,’ Islam In America Is ‘Under Attack, But Must Not Retreat.”
