Tick tock….tick tock…
Background: Earlier this year, the story broke about some muzzie ITs—Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan—the Dems hired to maintain their computer network. They ended up hacking into the Dems’ congressional computer networks, and it was later discovered that they took money from a Hezbollah-connected Iraqi politician, and sent sensitive intelligence to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The federal case against Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, expanded Thursday with an indictment on four counts including conspiracy and making false statements.
He originally was charged with a single bank fraud count; his wife Hina Alvi also was indicted Thursday.
The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from.
Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July.
……The case has put renewed scrutiny on Wasserman Schultz for keeping Awan on the payroll for months, even after a criminal investigation was revealed and he was barred from the House IT network.
Awan and other family members for years had a lucrative arrangement for IT-related work on Capitol Hill for House Democrats. According to The Daily Caller, the members of the Pakistani family made at least $4 million since 2009.
Wasserman Schultz blames her scandal on “right-wing media circus fringe” . She owns this clusterfuck and she should be brought up on charges as well.
