While the MSM is still in full "attack Trump" mode, breathlessly reporting each of his tweets, attacking his cabinet picks, gleefully celebrating how the most liberal court in the land, as well as the one that has the most over-turned rulings by the Supreme Court, has temporarily blocked the immigration pause, we see that one of the biggest bombshells was dropped on February 4, 2017, yet major outlets like Washington Post, New York Times and other mainstream outlets, has either downplayed it or simply hidden it from their audience.
Three Pakistani brothers, are under criminal investigation for unauthorized access into congressional computers. The suspects had access to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence's and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs', most sensitive information.
Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.
All three brothers were employed by Democrats.
Maria Bartiromo of Fox News discusses this issue in the short clip below.
How sensitive is the information these men had access to? That is explained in detail by FrontPage:
The offices that employed them included HPSCI minority members Speier, Carson and Joaquín Castro. Congressman Castro, who also sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, utilized the services of Jamal Moiz Awan. Speier and Carson’s offices utilized Imran Awan.
Abid A. Awan was employed by Lois Frankel and Ted Lieu: members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Also on the committee is Castro. As is Robin Kelly whose office employed Jamal Awan. Lieu also sits on the subcommittees on National Security and Information Technology of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Tammy Duckworth’s office had also employed Abid. Before Duckworth successfully played on the sympathy of voters to become Senator Tammy Duckworth, she had been on the Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces of the Armed Services Committee.
Gwen Graham, who had also been on the Armed Services Committee and on the Tactical Air and Land Forces subcommittee, had employed Jamal Awan. Jamal was also employed by Cedric Richmond’s office. Richmond sits on the Committee on Homeland Security and on its Terrorism and Cybersecurity subcommittee. He is a ranking member of the latter subcommittee. Also employing Jamal was Mark Takano of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
Imran had worked for the office of John Sarbanes who sits on the House Energy and Commerce Committeethat oversees, among other things, the nuclear industry. Other members of the Committee employing the brothers included Yvette Clarke, who also sits on the Bipartisan Encryption Working Group, Diana DeGette, Dave Loebsack and Tony Cardenas.
But finally there’s Andre Carson.
Carson is the second Muslim in Congress and the first Muslim on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and, more critically, is the ranking member on its Emerging Threats Subcommittee. He is also a member of the Department of Defense Intelligence and Overhead Architecture Subcommittee.
The bold print emphasis above is mine, showing the amount of critical, dangerous information that these men had access to. One would think that major media outlets would at least be asking why these people were accessing data they were unauthorized to access, to the point where there is now a criminal investigation into those security breaches, and more critically, what were they doing with the information they were accessing?
According to Politico, Imran Awan, who has worked for more than two dozen Democrats since 2004, is still on the payroll of former DNC Chair and current Representative of Florida's 23rd congressional district, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who was forced to step down from the DNC Chair after Wikileaks exposed her corrupt practices during the presidential campaign season.
That same article reports that Imran Awan's wife, Hina Alvi, is also still employed by Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), pending investigation.
We have multiple Congressional employees, from Pakinstani descent, accessing information critical to national security on almost every level, with no idea what they have been doing with said information, all under criminal investigation........ so where are the mainstream media reports?
In the video below after a very brief description of why I am doing Google searches in the New York Times and Washington Post, in a one month time frame, for the names Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan, we see that according to Google, all three names when plugged into their search engine come up as "did not match any documents," in both major newspapers.
Below the video are screen shots from a direct search from over the last seven days at the NYT website itself, which comes up with the same results..... nothing, nada, zip.
We are left wondering why both the NYT and Wapo is hiding what could arguably be one of the biggest national security breaches of the century, from their readers.
