Howie Carr: Why isn’t Comey’s FBI investigating the Awan Bros. and Democrats?

In the aftermath of FBI Director James Comey’s testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee, NewsmaxTV talk show host Howie Carr asked a rhetoric question: Why are the Democrats and Republicans wasting time and money investigating a case that’s failed to materialize and ignoring a case of suspected radical Islamic spies being given carte blanche on the IT system at the House of Representatives? 

Democratic members of the House shared the services of three suspected spies from Pakistan.

A former police department’s intelligence official told Conservative Base on Wednesday that he believes part of the reason the Democratic Party and their allies in the news media continue their overall narrative — that Donald Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin colluded to destroy innocent Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations — is to divert attention away from the alleged shenanigans of three Pakistanis hired by Democratic politicians.

“The Democrats in Congress hired three brothers to work in key jobs in the House of Representatives and it’s believed they spied for radical Islamic groups with the blessings of American politicians like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz,” the former police intelligence expert told Conservative Base. “They dread the thought of having to explain why they are so careless with classified intelligence,” he added.

During the early days of the Trump administration in February, three brothers — all Pakistani immigrants — who were hired by Democratic lawmakers to manage their information technology (IT)  for their party’s members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other components of the House of Representatives were quietly and suddenly suspended pending an investigation. It was believed that the three Muslim siblings accessed classified-documents on lawmakers’ computers without clearance, authorization or permission.

The three Pakistani nationals named Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan  were told they were  — and are — banned from all computer networks at the House of Representatives and throughout the U.S. government, according to Washington, D.C. insider Charles “Chuckie” Palmeriera, a former police intelligence unit commander.

According to the Conservative Base source, three Democrats sitting on the intelligence panel and five Democrats on the foreign affairs committee were among the members who employed the suspects on a shared basis.  Both of these panels routinely receive and generate many of the U.S. government’s highly sensitive documents, including those related to the global war on terrorism.

A primary target among those who were targeted was Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the Florida Democrat who was also the target of an unrelated email hack when she served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign. While the news media covered Wasserman-Schultz’s DNC hacking scandal, they totally ignored the far more serious Awan brothers case.

“The media appeared more concerned over the DNC — a group that isn’t part of the government and is responsible for its own security — being hacked than the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees being compromised by ‘insiders’ hired from a country known for its duplicitous dealings with radical Islamic terrorists,” said political consultant and former criminal prosecutor Samuel Heckerstein.

The Plot Thickens

All three of the Pakistani Awan brothers were employed by the House Democrats. The politicos who utilized their IT expertise included Democratic Congressmen Jackie Speier, Andre Carson and Joaquín Castro. Congressman Castro, who also sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, utilized the services of Jamal Moiz Awan while Speier and Carson’s offices utilized Imran Awan.

Brothers Imran, Abid, and Jamal Awan as well as Hina Alvi, Imran’s wife, each made $160,000 a year as information technology workers for the House. Their time was shared among dozens of Democratic members, including former Democratic National Committee Chairman Rep. Wasserman-Schultz.

“The lawmakers also included members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. This is how

seriously Democrats take national security. In fact, if one mentions these brothers are Muslims from a country in which al-Qaida’s notorious leader Osama bin Laden hid that person is lambasted as being an Islamophobe or worse,” said political consultant Henry Davernport, a former military officer himself.

Congresswoman Gwen Graham, who served on the Armed Services Committee and on the Tactical Air and Land Forces subcommittee, had employed Jamal Awan. Jamal was also employed by Rep. Cedric Richmond who is part of the Committee on Homeland Security and on its Terrorism and Cybersecurity subcommittee. He is a ranking member of the latter subcommittee. Also Rep. Mark Takano of the Subcommittee on Science, Space, and Technology employed Imram.

Imran also had worked for the office of John Sarbanes who sits on the House Energy and Commerce Committee that oversees the nuclear industry and the nation’s power grid.

    These three brothers were reportedly under suspicion for a period of time prior to their getting canned. They were fired three days after the Yemeni raid, during which our soldiers learned the mission had been compromised. When contact was initiated, the Seals were amazed at how prepared and organized the al-Qaeda response was.

    Now the media says the mission was compromised because of the noisy U.S. air cover that preceded the raid, giving the enemy time to prepare for the raid, but there are reports that our guys learned about the compromise via a communications intercept and that, ultimately, intel pointed back to a U.S. source. Think about it. The Obama Administration had okayed the mission months before it was executed. Members of the congressional intelligence and foreign affairs committees are briefed about missions of this nature in advance. No doubt there were exchanges of electronic communications between the congressional sources on what they had presumed were secure channels.

    Conclusion? The Anwan brothers, with access to congressional communications, learned of the mission and tipped off their network. The Seals learned via the in-field communications intercept of the compromise. Military assets ran traces on the intercept and, via NSA databases and other resources, trace the source back to D.C. and eventually to Capitol Hill. A fairly quick analysis, relatively speaking, narrows the intel to the House classified communication channels. The Democrat Members’ chiefs of staffs are briefed by U.S. intel and, bingo, the Anwan brothers are fired and banned from accessing congressional IT systems, suspected, if not accused, of having illegally accessed the most sensitive intel, among other things.

    So they are “under investigation.” And completely off the radar map. I suspect that what investigators have already learned is so incredibly embarrassing to these Democrats and Congress in general, this story may never get fully vetted in public. And these three guys still walk our streets.
