Here’s What You Need to Know About the Awan Brothers

Here’s what you NEED TO KNOW about the Awan brothers.

The news has been filled the last few days with headlines regarding Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her ties to the Awan brothers. There is a ton of information out there and it can be difficult to digest. Additionally, there is a ton of information that is believed, but is unverifiable at this point. Here’s what you need to know in chronological order:

 The Awan brothers and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Imran Awan is a Pakistani national, IT professional. He began working for Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2004. He joined her team during her campaign for Representative for Florida’s 23rd district. Imran continued to work for Wasserman Schultz in multiple positions over the years, but settled into a more tech advisory role. Subsequently, Imran’s advisory services were procured by multiple members of Congress covering most of the House Democrats. The eldest Awan brother was joined by his two brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife Hina Alvi, his brother’s wife Natalia Sova (Ukranian, the only non-Pakistani of the group) and his long-time friend Rao Abbas in doing IT work for multiple congressional members per reports from The Daily Caller and World Net Daily. They worked in this capacity until February 2017. The relationship between the Awans and Wasserman Schultz, however, is even deeper than just workplace. They have been reported by Politico to be very close friends.

Exorbitant pay for IT workers.

The Awan brothers and their cohort were paid handsomely by you, the taxpayer, for their services.

From World Net Daily:

Public records show Imran was paid $165,000 a year; Abid made $161,000; Jamal, Hina Alvi and Natalia Sova earned $160,000 each.

Here’s the rub with those figures. Per Glassdoor.com, a widely known employment/salary tracking site, the average IT person within the federal government earns $89,411. The top rate for IT specialists (for tenured employees, not workers under 15 years within the government) would be $115,000. So, just so you understand, members of the Awan family were each earning close to $50,000 more than even the most season IT professional in the federal government. It is reported that the family has received over $4 million dollars in salaries since the beginning of 2009 and over $5 million since 2003. Imran has recieved $2 million just by himself, putting him among the top 0.4% of all wage earning House employees. Why the exorbitant salaries for a fairly common type of worker? What services were they providing that the American people aren’t privy to? Were the Awans using information from their work on congressional servers to blackmail members of Congress? It seems highly likely.

From the Daily Caller:

“I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point” with no arrests, said Pat Sowers, who has managed IT for several House offices for 12 years. “Something is rotten in Denmark.”

Additionally, there were multiple instances that other workers in the IT field offered their services to House Democrat members at much lower prices and with wider service packages, but were declined, despite reports that the Awan brothers did shoddy IT work overall. There is definitely a reason that House Democrats didn’t want any other IT specialists other than the Awans.

Keeping their stepmother quiet.

The Awan brothers were good at IT. Very good. They allegedly kept their step mother, Samani Galani, away from their father while he was on his deathbed in a local hospital. Using scare tactics and tech, the brothers bugged the home and phone of Galani and used their leverage to keep her quiet.

“I am fighting to protect the country. These are very bad people.”

Additionally, to keep Galani from the insurance money and estate of the father, the Awan brothers used intimidation (sending people to scare her) and fake documents without notarization or certification of signatures. When the brothers no longer felt like the wire-tapping was working sufficiently, they even threatened to kidnap and kill her if she didn’t cooperate. The stepmother filed police reports dictating just how sinister these men were.

Widespread, unfettered access to government files.

It’s never a good idea to allow an individual (or small group of individuals) wide-spread access to our countries most sensitive materials, but that is exactly what has taken place with the Awan brothers. The coverage of access for the Awans is reported to be widespread. The Awans worked with 32 different House members for IT services and had access to all their servers and email systems. While working with those congressmen, they would have had access to servers for multiple committees and subcommittees including the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and the Committee on Homeland Security. Additionally, Imran had the password and access to Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ iPad that she used for DNC business while serving as it’s head. That means that these brothers and their cohort could see communication from every congressman from either side of the isle and had unrestricted access to the files and contents of some of our nation’s most sensitive servers. Why would any one person (or small group of people) be allowed access to all that information, especially when they are Pakistani nationals?

The investigation beginning on February 2, 2017.

We now see the type of people the Awan brothers were and the high levels of access and pay that they were privy to. Now it’s time to look into the criminal investigation that was launched by Capital Police on February 2, 2017. Imran, along with his family/friends, came under investigation for “wide-range equipment and data theft” per Politico. Additionally, it is reported that the Imran was using secret servers, hidden partitions within servers, and was even transferring government data off-site to non-protected, private servers (where have we heard people using private servers before?). Capital police and the FBI have confiscated mutiple computers and servers tied to the investigation which they are using to track the actions of the Awans. It has even come out that the Awan brothers have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah groups. Oddly enough, multiple Democrats have come out in defense of Imran and the rest of the Awan group saying that if something was done illegally, it must be a mistake and not malicious. One Democrat in particular has been feverish in her defense of the Awan brothers: Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She even went so far as to threaten the Capitol Police chief over the confiscated laptop.

This investigation led to many of the House Democrats that were using the Awans for IT to sever ties and fire them due to conflicts of the investigation. This was a reasonable action to take. However, Debbie Wasserman Schultz chose not to fire Imran, but rather change his title to ‘advisor’ which allowed him to stay on with Schultz. Imran Awan was still on the payroll of the former DNC head up until the day he was arrested at Dulles airport, but we’ll get into that in a bit.

Smashed Laptops and Computer Equipment.

Last week, the FBI and Capital Police responded to a call from a Marine veteran in regards to the contents that were found in the home he was renting. The veteran was renting the Virginia home from none other than Imran Awan.

From the Daily Caller:

‘Shortly after the criminal probe was revealed in February, Imran abruptly moved out of his longtime home on Hawkshead Drive in Lorton, Va., and listed it for rent on a website that connects landlords with military families.

One of the new tenants — a Marine Corps veteran married to a female Navy Officer — said he found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner.”

The tenants called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and, not long after, FBI agents arrived together with the Capitol Police to interview them and confiscate the equipment. The Marine spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his wife’s naval career, saying she doesn’t want to be associated with a national security incident.

“It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.”’

Additionally, Imran tried to threaten the Marine veteran into giving him the smashed government equipment, but to no avail. Upon realizing it was government issue tech, the FBI and Capital Police were involved. At the minimum, it shows the negligence of the Awan brothers in their use of sensitive material. Leaving those items just lying around in a rental could have been disastrous, but thankfully through the quick wit of one of our nation’s finest, it is back in the hands of investigators.

Imran tried to flee the country.

In the latest with this ever-growing story, Imran Awan was arrested on July 25, 2017, at Dulles Airport, trying to flee the country for Pakistan.

From Fox News:

Fox News is told officers and agents from the U.S. Capitol Police, the FBI and Customs and Border Protection were involved in the arrest of Imran Awan at Dulles International Airport.

Awan, 37, of Virginia, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in federal court in Washington, D.C. He was released but will have to wear a GPS monitor and abide by a curfew.

Awan also was ordered to turn over all his passports. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 21.

Earlier that day, Awan had wired $283,000 from the Congressional Federal Credit Union to a bank account held in Pakistan. Interestingly enough, this only took place a few days after the raid by the FBI to retrieve smashed hard drives and laptops previously in the ownership of Imran. It was at the moment of his arrest that Debbie Wasserman Schultz finally severed ties to Imran and issued this statment through spokesman David Damron:

“Mr. Awan previously served as a part-time employee but his services have been terminated,” He added, “No charges, evidence or findings from the investigation have been formally shared with our office, so we cannot comment on them.”

So what does this all mean?

The Awan story is huge. It’s tentacles reach into so many recesses of the Democratic Party. If it comes out that Democratic members of Congress knowingly gave unrestricted access to our nation’s greatest secrets and intel to foreign nationals due to blackmail or collusion, it would utterly destroy the Democrat Party. This has the ability to be one of the greatest security breaches in American history. This would not only put our soldiers overseas at risk but it could result in national emergencies here on the home front. Was Al-Qaeda tipped off in Yemen earlier this year due to this breach? Did Ryan Owens lose his life because Debbie Wasserman Schultz was colluding with Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah-tied Pakistani nationals? Even if that instance wasn’t due to this case, it is a perfect example of what could come of such a breach. This story could very possibly be why the Democrats have doubled down on the Russian collusion story. To keep the American people off their trail. It’s following Aleister Crowley’s Rules for Radicals to perfection: Use whatever your weakness is and make it the weakness of your opponent. Sorry, Debbie and company, we’re on to you. If there be any justice left in America, I pray that it be fulfilled to the fullest extent on anyone who was involved in this travesty. I said it before in my periscope video on Tuesday, and I still believe it now: The Awan brothers story could bring down the entire Democrat Party.

NOTE:


I must say that there is even more information swirling out there about the Awan story that is continuing to come in, but at the time of writing this article, could not be proven. Though much of it may come out as fact, I am choosing not to include it here at this time. That being said, KEEP DIGGING. The way stories like this continue to gain momentum and eventually are solved is through the work of citizen journalists like you and me. Your work is vital!

    I do not understand how living in a country with its republic established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called “Organizing for Action” – (OFA).

    OFA – 30,000 strong working to disrupt everything that our current president is trying to do. This goes against our Democracy, it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If this is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws? If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know.

    It is explained below. Do your part: read it and at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a “PERFECT TARGET” for our enemy! Article from the New York Post – If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America!

    The ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration’s top dogs over to an organization called Organizing for Action (OFA). OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance we are seeing across America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution.

    OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for “progressive” change. Issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform. OFA members were propped up by the ex-president’s message from the shadows: “Organizing is the building block of everything great we’ve accomplished. Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities – and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2016 and beyond.”

    OFA’s website says it obtained its “digital” assets from the ex-president’s re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short, it’s the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic – AMERICA

    Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president “will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.” Sperry writes that the ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the incoming administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate OFA has 32,525 volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office near the White House.

    Think about how this works – for example: Trump issues an immigration executive order;
