    It seems the DNC felt the need to use foreign nationals for their IT support - why?

    While the Russia spin continues, here you have foreign nationals with access to DNC and potential sensitive security information. What background check did they get? Probably none, its difficult to run even the most basic US background check on foreign nationals since they do not have SS#s.

    So why were foreign nationals from 3rd world nations used for IT support?

    Whatever the reason Debbie Wasserman-Schultz wants the laptop they used - its in custody (or was). She does not want that laptop reviewed.

    Do you really think anything is left on those servers?

    Yes. Even with Bleach Bit, if you can find what servers the DNC servers talked to, you can retrieve information. Normally internet traffic goes through a proxy server that prides security for the servers that initiate server traffic.

    One arrested while leaving country.

    Feds arrest IT staffer for Wasserman Schultz trying to leave country | Fox News


    A House IT staffer at the center of a congressional computer equipment scandal has been arrested by federal officials and charged with bank fraud, Fox News has learned.

    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.

    ....
    The criminal complaint and affidavit said he had bought a ticket to fly Monday to Doha, Qatar, and then Lahore, Pakistan, with a return flight booked for early January.

    Go to 2:45 of this video to see how DWS tried to get back Awan's laptop. Her main argument was that the Capital police could not hold equipment without someone under investigation. Guess that moot now.

    A fired House staffer was arrested on a bank fraud charge while trying to leave the U.S. for Pakistan, according to reports Tuesday.

    Imran Awan, who most recently worked for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), was busted Monday at Dulles International Airport, Politico reported.

    Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were accused of lying about a housing equity loan to pilfer $165,000 from the Congressional Federal Credit Union, according to documents filed in the District of Columbia. The couple obtained the loan for a rental property — rather than a primary residence. That money was then wired to Pakistan, documents allege.

    Prior to the FBI probe, the couple worked under several House Democrats.

    Alvi left the country suddenly in March. She pulled their three children from school and flew to Lahore, Pakistan, with “numerous pieces of luggage” and at least $12,000 cash. Investigators believe Awan was ready to do the same with a Monday flight bound for Pakistan, court documents show.

    Several lawmakers, including Reps. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) and Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio), had already cut ties with the couple as the investigation heated up in late February.

    Awan remained employed by Wasserman Schultz as a technology adviser until Tuesday although he had been prohibited from accessing the House network for about six months, according to Politico.

    Lee Cruse covered the Awan matter on Live with Lee today on 590 in the Lexington area.

    He pointed out that here are real criminal matters at hand involving foreign nationals who had substantial access to Democratic IT resources. He said Mueller quit focusing on the Russian angle and probably could wrap-up the break in of the DNC servers in 48 hours if he just would look into this case.

    From zerohedge yesterday:

    Wasserman-Schultz And The Pakistani IT Scammers: "There's More Than Just Bank Fraud Going On Here" | Zero Hedge


    Yet bank fraud was the stated charge on which Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport this week, just as he was trying to flee the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar. That is the same route taken by Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled the country, with three young daughters she yanked out of school, mega-luggage, and $12,400 in cash.


    By then, the proceeds of the fraudulent $165,000 loan they’d gotten from the Congressional Federal Credit Union had been sent ahead. It was part of a $283,000 transfer that Awan managed to wire from Capitol Hill. He pulled it off — hilariously, if infuriatingly — by pretending to be his wife in a phone call with the credit union. Told that his proffered reason for the transfer (“funeral arrangements”) wouldn’t fly, “Mrs.” Awan promptly repurposed: Now “she” was “buying property.” Asking no more questions, the credit union wired the money . . . to Pakistan.


    As you let all that sink in, consider this: Awan and his family cabal of fraudsters had access for years to the e-mails and other electronic files of members of the House’s Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees. It turns out they were accessing members’ computers without their knowledge, transferring files to remote servers, and stealing computer equipment — including hard drives that Awan & Co. smashed to bits of bytes before making tracks.

    They were fired in February. All except Awan, that is. He continued in the employ of Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat, former DNC chairwoman, and Clinton crony. She kept him in place at the United States Congress right up until he was nabbed at the airport on Monday.


    This is not about bank fraud. The Awan family swindles are plentiful, but they are just window-dressing. This appears to be a real conspiracy, aimed at undermining American national security.

    (Emphasis is authors in original posting)

    ....


    Democrats now say that any access to sensitive information was “unauthorized.” But how hard could it have been to get “unauthorized” access when House Intelligence Committee Dems wanted their staffers to have unbounded access? In 2016, they wrote a letter to an appropriations subcommittee seeking funding so their staffers could obtain “Top Secret — Sensitive Compartmented Information” clearances. TS/SCI is the highest-level security classification. Awan family members were working for a number of the letter’s signatories.
