Trouble Brewing in the Democratic Party

By Craig Andresen with contributions from Diane Sori – Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is finished…or she should be

Last week, her IT officer, one Imran Awan, was arrested as he attempted to flee the United States for Pakistan, with a layover in Qatar…the very country that specializes in being the halfway house for former GITMO terrorist inmates as they reenter their natural workforce in various terrorist fields of endeavor.

Imran Awan had, just a few months ago, wired nearly $300,000 dollars to relatives in Pakistan, and his wife, Hina Alvi, a Congressional aide to New York Democrat Gregory Meeks, soon after that, fled the United States for Pakistan with more than $12,000 in cash stashed in her bag.

Trust me, it get plenty worse.

It also seems that once employed by Debbie Wasserman Schultz in or about 2005, several of Imran Awan’s relatives somehow also showed up on the government payroll, including brothers Abid Awan and Jamal Awan, and Awan’s best friend, Rao Abbas. Altogether, the Awan syndicate managed to pocket slightly more than $4 million dollars while working for Debbie Wasserman Schultz…that’s $4 million U.S. taxpayer dollars, but as I said…it gets worse.

Last February, the Awan syndicate found themselves under investigation for theft and IT abuses…whatever that means, and I’ll get back to that in a moment…and they were banned from any and all Capitol computer networks.

Let that roll about in your minds…the IT officer for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former head of the Democrat National Party, and his family and friends who were all on the government payroll thanks to Wasserman Schultz, were suspects in various criminal enterprises including IT abuse and theft…and yet Wasserman Schultz refused…I’ll say it again…refused…to fire Awan, his family or their friend.

Did I say it gets worse…because it does.

Not only did Wasserman Schultz refuse to fire the Awan syndicate, which had amassed some $4 million U.S. taxpayer dollars while in the employ of her, and nearly two dozen other members of the House, she also blocked investigators from forensically looking into the computer Awan had possession of…a computer that belonged to Debbie Wasserman Schultz and was the property of the U.S. government, and therefore belonged to We the People. Wasserman Schultz actually threatened the Capitol Police with “consequences” if they didn’t give back the computer, tied to the main suspect in an official investigation, that was actually seized from the House Office Building.

Okay, I said that I would get back to what “IT abuse” means, and here it is…according to the Capitol Police, they were investigating Awan and his brothers in a criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” and let’s be extremely clear here…not only did the Awan syndicate have the password to the iPad that Wasserman Schultz used for Democratic National Committee business before she resigned as its head in July 2016, they also had complete access to all the emails, files…and documents of better than 25 House democrats.

ALL the files, and ALL the documents.

How many classified documents and/or files do you suppose were amongst them?

Now, we go from bad to even worse…

After the arrest last Monday of Awan at Dulles Airport during his attempt to flee the country, authorities revealed that they had discovered, at Awan’s former home, smashed hard drives. This was a home that Awan and his wife abruptly moved out of and rented after the scandal first broke last February and it was the renters, a Marine Corps veteran and his wife, a Naval Officer, who found the smashed hard drives, along with other government computer equipment including wireless routers, expensive toner (used for printers) and laptops stashed in some garage cabinets.

Upon their discovery, and the reporting of it to NCIS, Awan threatened the couple with a lawsuit for “stealing” the hard drives and other equipment because, according to the Marine veteran, he seemed to be “desperate to get the stuff back.”

A few points of clarification here are necessary…first, one doesn’t smash hard drives with a hammer if one doesn’t have something to hide, and second, one certainly doesn’t threaten a lawsuit to get those hard drives back if one isn’t afraid of what an FBI forensics team might be able to recover from them down the road.

Perhaps more to the point…what was contained on those smashed hard drives, and on that laptop computer that made Debbie Wasserman Schultz go so far as to threaten the Capitol Police with “consequences” were they not immediately returned…not to Awan…but to her?

As the investigation progresses, it has become known that Awan was indeed sending documents and files to points outside our country and it is better than just a fair bet that he, and his IT syndicate had some sort of goods on Wasserman Schultz…perhaps on several of the democratic House members they were employed by, and speculation has, for months, revolved around the notion that the Awan syndicate was engaged in blackmailing several members of congress.

But it wasn’t just foreign entities to whom the Awan syndicate was sending files and documents…and I’ll clarify that point in a moment.

This would account for why, after the seizure of the laptop and smashed hard drives by the Capitol police and the FBI…nearly all the House members who had employed the Awan syndicate cut their ties with them. Debbie Wasserman Schultz however, refused to fire Awan until last Tuesday’s arrest at Dulles Airport.

It now seems that not only is this Awan character the primary suspect in an ongoing criminal investigation…he could also turn out to be a state’s witness against Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Again, let me be very pointed here…

No group of IT specialists, working for a bunch of congress people is worth between $4 million and $5 Million dollars regardless of who is paying them, and certainly not worth that sort of money when it has been appropriated from the American taxpayers…not by any known ethical means anyway.

That leaves the unethical…

As stated earlier, it wasn’t just foreign entities to whom Awan was apparently sending files and documents, as there is apparently also evidence that he had been sending files and documents to an…off site server…and who do we know, who would have had direct ties to Wasserman Schultz that had an off sight…private…server?

Hillary Clinton, of course.

As the head of the DNC until July of 2016, it would be no stretch to believe that Wasserman Schultz was directly tied to then Secretary of State, and after that, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and as we are all quite plainly aware, Hillary had some 32,000 emails, documents and files wiped and bleachbitted from her private server.

Wanna bet against the idea that some of those bleachbitted files and emails involved unethical business being conducted between the former head of the DNC and the former Secretary of State and candidate, Hillary Clinton?

Me either.

And how close were the Awans with the Clintons? This image, of which most in the media have cropped down to just the left side of it, shows a reality that the liberal mainstream media would rather you not see.

So…between 2005, when Awan went on the payroll along with the rest of the IT syndicate, and the time in or around 2009 up to the present when they were all employed by nearly two dozen other liberal House members, the Syndicate raked in between $4 million and $5 Million dollars, which seems absurd unless there was a healthy amount of hush money involved…and because both blackmail and the financing of the payoff against it with taxpayer dollars are criminal enterprises…it seems that there could well be a boat load of trouble brewing on the left side of the House.

For the sake of comparison, an average IT staffer in that area makes between $50,000.00 and $60,000.00 per year while the Awan brothers were raking in better than $160,000.00 per year each and Imran Awan’s wife was making more than that.

Obviously, any time you have someone sending files and documents related to official government business, to offsite servers or foreign entities, there are security concerns of a serious nature to be investigated, and indeed the investigation of Awan and his IT syndicate does deal with security threats, but there is yet another aspect to this which must also now be investigated.


The House Intel Committee has, for some time now, been leaking like a sieve with info from closed door hearings making its way to the liberal mainstream media even before transcripts and their redacted parts have had an opportunity to dry…but how could this be related to the Awan IT syndicate?

One of the two dozen or so democrats in the House who were paying money to the Awan syndicate, was House Intel Committee member, Andre Carson who, one year before being named to that committee in 2015, was the keynote speaker at the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations…a fringe U.S. political party which happens to be quite openly funded by…the Muslim Brotherhood.

You remember the Muslim Brotherhood, whose motto is: “Allah is our objective; the Koran is the Constitution; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; death for the sake of Allah is our wish.” Isn’t that just delightful, how a sitting member of the House, a Muslim, and now member of the House Intel Committee is thought of in such high regard by the Muslim Brotherhood as to be named their keynote speaker?

And isn’t it also delightful that Andre Carson’s list of known associates also includes Mazen Mokhtar, the national director of the North America/Muslim American Society, who…in 2004…was suspected of soliciting online funding for the Taliban and al-Qaida terrorists and recruiting Muslims to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan?

Now then, here’s a question I’ll bet you never saw coming…what does an IT syndicate, being paid $4 million to $5 million taxpayer dollars need with a…car dealership?

Well…Imran Awan and his syndicate owned an LLC by the name of Cars International A, or CIA for short (nice acronym huh) and that car dealership, potentially a money laundering set up, took a loan of $100,000.00 from one Dr. Ali Al-Attar. And who exactly is this Dr. Ali Al-Attar?

According to a former CIA agent (that’s the intel agency, not the car lot CIA) says that Dr. Ali Al-Attar, “was observed in Beirut, Lebanon conversing with a Hezbollah official in 2012.”

Now then, why other than the blatantly obvious, is it a concern that Awan and his syndicate have financial ties to someone who has the ear of Hezbollah officials? Because…and it’s worse than you might think…the Awan IT syndicate actually worked for more than just roughly two dozen members of the House…they, over just the past six years, have been doing IT work…having complete access to all files, documents and emails…of 80 democrat members of congress…members of the homeland security, foreign affairs, intelligence committees…and the Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces of the Armed Services Committee.

It appears as though the jobs the Awan IT syndicate were, in many if not most cases where these 80 democrats were concerned, revolving around or were related to intelligence, terrorism, and cybersecurity with regards to the U.S. government.

Suddenly, having complete access to files, documents and emails takes on a whole different and even more dire meaning.

Bear in mind, that at least at this point, nobody is saying that all 80 members of congress somehow tied to the Awan syndicate had full knowledge of when their files, documents and emails were accessed…in fact, most of it seems to have been done covertly…but how much of what was accessed was classified? Frankly, at this time, we just don’t know…but there is something we do know…

Just a year ago, eight members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence signed a letter demanding that they, and their staffers, be given access to top secret classified information. Those members were…the aforementioned Andre Carson, Luis Guiterez, Jim Himes, Terri Sewell, Jackie Speier, Mike Quigley, Eric Swalwell and Patrick Murphy, and all of them are among the two dozen or so democrats who had the Awans on their payrolls…but it gets worse…and I mean a whole lot worse…as also on the list of staffers that those eight House democrats demanded…again for emphasis…demanded…have access to top secret classified information were…the Awans.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz also requested that the Awans have full top level security clearance.

The Awan brothers, Pakistani nationals, not U.S. citizens, one of whom has a criminal record and none of whom would have passed a background check for such a level of clearance, were both requested and demanded, by democrats including Wasserman Schultz to be granted full access to top secret classified information. Imran Awan the first of the brothers to he hired, was hired from Pakistan in 2003 by Congressman Wexler, and started working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005. The second of the brothers,  Abid Awan, was brought to Washington from Pakistan in 2005. Imran Awan’s wife came from Pakistan in 2007. Abid’s wife, Natalia Sova, arrived from Pakistan and got on the congressional payroll in 2011. Jamal Awan became the last of the brothers to be hired directly from Pakistan to join the democratic congressional payroll.

Rao Abbas, a supposed friend of the Awans to whom they owed money then was added to the payroll of democrat Congressman Patrick Murphy as an IT staffer at the incredible sum of $259,000.00 per year.

Wasserman Schultz also “vouched” for the Awan syndicate members to bypass standard visa procedures which is how they all managed to get into the United States to begin with, and she also requested that the Awans have full top level security clearance.


It all comes back to Hillary Clinton.

The Awan IT syndicate went into full operational mode in the House at almost the exact same time as Hillary became the Secretary of State. Imran Awan, the syndicate’s leader, build a separate server for the purpose of storing classified information and documents. Wasserman Schultz was then, as the head of the DNC, inexorably tied to Hillary Clinton. Hillary’s top aid, who also had access to any and all of the emails and documents both kept on and erased from Hillary’s private server was, and is, Huma Abedin who is part of the Muslim Sisterhood, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

One of the many congressmen who also employed the Awan IT syndicate was Andre Carson, a Muslim sitting on the House Intel Committee who has known ties to several Islamic organizations including, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA); the Muslim American Society (MAS); and the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO).

The Awan IT syndicate was sending documents, files and emails not only to foreign entities, but to an offsite server which could have been the one Awan built, perhaps the one Hillary had in her home, or potentially both.

After Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign her DNC position over her close ties to and overt campaigning for Hillary Clinton…and sabotaging of the campaign of Bernie Sanders, Wasserman Schultz was immediately hired on as honorary chair to the Clinton campaign’s 50-state program. Why? Because she’s such a great strategist that she got caught fixing the primaries in favor of Hillary Clinton, or ss that Hillary could keep a close eye on the woman who was the liaison between all the various sensitive and security House committees and the Awan IT syndicate that was syphoning them for classified intel?

After initially being blocked from access to congressional IT networks when this all first broke last February, Debbie Wasserman Schultz changed the titles of the Awan syndicate from “IT Support” to “Senior Aides,” which carries the designation of clearance “Above Top Secret,” thus restoring their unfettered access to all congressional networks even though she knew full well of the ongoing investigation into their activities.

This is also when Imran Awan’s wife fled back to Pakistan, and Imran rented out their home coinciding with the smashing of hard drives…a tactic also employed by Hillary Clinton.

If you think linking the Awan IT syndicate to Hillary Clinton is a stretch, think again, as it isn’t even a reach when one stops to realize that Imran Awan has lawyered up with high-priced and well connected D.C. attorney, Chris Gowen, a close associate of both Bill and Hillary Clinton who has also worked for The Clinton Global Initiative, The Clinton Foundation, and The Clinton Health Access Initiative.

In fact, Gowan immediately jumped into the Awan mess directly upon Imran Awan’s arrest at Dulles Airport last Monday releasing the statement that Awan was a victim of “a right-wing media-driven prosecution by a United States Attorney’s Office that wants to prosecute people for working while Muslim.”

A “Vast right wing conspiracy” quote from Hillary’s past leaps to mind.

It is impossible to believe that whatever information that was once on Hillary’s private server before it was bleachbitted and destroyed doesn’t still exist somewhere, and it seems to be a good bet that all of that missing info now resides somewhere in Pakistan with the members of the Awan syndicate that managed to flee the U.S. for their homeland.

If one really wants to find collusion, obstruction of justice, espionage, treason and many other assorted criminal actions, President Trump and the Russians is nothing but a democrat smokescreen to divert attention away from Hillary and Bill Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama and Loretta Lynch along with potentially several left of the aisle members of the House through the use of their willing puppet, Debbie Wasserman Schultz who thought all of this would be swept under the proverbial rug because they all believed that Hillary would be the next president, keeping all of this at bay, so that their illegal activities could continue unabated.

To be clear, the Wasserman Schultz/Awan brothers IT syndicate and all of its theft of classified materials and potential holding of Hillary’s erased materials would have never come to light had it not been for Hillary’s loss in November 2016. And because the secrets of Obama’s back door dealings including Benghazi may well also be on the Awan’s offsite server…Hilary’s loss has also opened yet another door into exposing his traitorous actions.

So far, Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton Debbie Wasserman Schultz and their collective minions have all operated above the law, and with the walls closing in on all three of them…one question remains…will any of them ever pay the price for their illegal and oft times treasonous actions?

Now is the time to prove there is not a two-tiered system of justice in this country…one for the ilk of them, and quite another for the rest of us, and I say, if Attorney General Jeff Sessions fails to go after the ilk of them with the full weight of the law, he needs to go, or the final result will be anarchy.
