More evidence has surfaced about the
disturbing political coverup of grave national security violations
committed by the Pakistani who ran House Democrats’ information
technology. His name is Imran Awan and last year he was arrested on
bank-fraud charges at Dulles International Airport in Washington D.C.
while trying to flee to his native Pakistan. Even after getting
fired by some members of Congress for stealing computers and data
systems, Florida’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz, then Democratic National
Committee (DNC) chair, kept him and let him have access to her emails
and files as well as the password to the electronic device she used for
DNC business. At one point, Awan had access to the computers of dozens
of members of Congress, including those on the House Intelligence and
Foreign Affairs committees. Judicial Watch has launched an investigation
and is pursuing public records.
The government’s bizarre failure to
prosecute Awan for the national security violations he appears to have
committed points to a political coverup that’s dangerous, craven and
borders on traitorous. A House Office of Inspector General investigation
determined earlier this year that Awan and his relatives committednumerous
violationsof House security policies, including
logging into the House Democratic Caucus server thousands of times
without authorization. The same news agency that reported that story

concluding that “Democrats appear to want to keep the case out of court”
because “a trial could expose their reckless IT practices.” It turns out
that, not only has Capitol Police failed to make any arrests, it
inadvertently gave evidence to defense attorneys that was supposed to go
to prosecutors. It gets better; prosecutors appear to be sharing
information with someone on Capitol Hill who in turn is leaking it to
Here is an excerpt from the news article
published just a few days ago: “The Capitol Police turned over a
trove of evidence in the alleged Imran Awan House cyberbreach and theft
case to the defense attorneys when they were supposed to deliver it to
prosecutors instead, according to court documents and a source.” Someone
inside government apparently tipped off Awan’s lawyer,Chris
Gowen, that a reporter was digging around for information on the
Capitol Police’s suspicious mistake involving the mishandling of
evidence. Gowen, a former public defender in Miami Florida, worked for
Bill Clinton and on Hillary Clinton’s failed 2008 presidential campaign.
The exchange of information (known as discovery) in a federal criminal
case occurs between prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office and
defense lawyers by either registered mail or a third-party copy service.
Law enforcement is never involved, according to federal law enforcement
sources contacted by Judicial Watch.
Legal experts and veteran federal agents
contacted by Judicial Watch say something smells rotten in this case.
The so-called inadvertent disclosure to Awan’s defense team by Capitol
Police was intentional for one of two reasons, the experts assert.
Perhaps the prosecution is alerting the defense of particular facts of
the case to generate cooperation and further the probe into political
figures. “This is possible because prosecutors are always gun shy when
it comes to prosecuting political figures, especially the figures who
may be culpable in the case,” said a longtime Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI) official who has worked on similar cases. “They do
not want to go to trial for a number of reasons, so they are showing
their hand to induce a plea with cooperation.”
The second reason, according to Judicial
Watch’s sources, is that there is corruption and the inadvertent
disclosure was purposeful to help bolster the defense without being
obvious and backing down in court. “Either way, something is up,” a
longtime federal agent told Judicial Watch. “I have never heard of
anyone at the federal level inadvertently handing over documents to the
defense en mass like this, never happens.” Chris Farrell, Judicial
Watch’s Director of Investigations and Research, maintains that “the
Awan case has all the characteristics of a major national security
USC Sec 793(f),” which carries a punishment of up to 10 years in
prison. A former military intelligence officer specializing in
counterintelligence and human intelligence, Farrell added that treating
the Awan case as anything less than a major national security crime is
either negligence or complicity. “The bungled handling of evidence is
disgraceful and amateurish,” Farrell said, adding that “the effort to
bury, constrain and minimize the Awan case is deeply disturbing, and
points to the need for a legitimate, full investigation by a competent
law enforcement agency with substantial experience in
counterintelligence and cyber-crime arenas.”
Clinton Tentacles Engulf Every Single Russian Collusion Narrative - All
Roads From Russia Lead To Hillary Clinton
the recent release of the Senate Judiciary Committee's witness
transcripts from those that attended the June 9, 2016, Trump Tower

Donald Trump Jr. of some type of Russian collusion with the Trump

long story short on the circumstances surrounding the meeting, by all
accounts by those participants, was that Donald Trump Jr. thought the
other attendees, especially Natalia Veselnitskaya, had some type of
opposition research on Hillary Clinton, but none was provided at the
meeting and the meeting ended up being focused mainly on the
Magnitsky Act. There was no follow-up meeting scheduled.

he was asked "Did you ever have any meetings with the Hillary Clinton
campaign or campaign officials officials?" His answer was "Not with
officials, no." After some back and forth with interviewers

was asked "Well, regardless of whether you were involved, did you ever
have any meetings?" He answered "I knew her, I knew some people who

The court was not informed that Mr. Steele was personally opposed to

where several Muslims were being tried for child rape — when he was
set upon by several police officers. In the space of the next few
hours, a judge tried, convicted, and sentenced him to 13 months in
jail — and also issued a gag order, demanding a total news blackout

Yaxley-Lennon, was immediately taken to Hull Prison.
media outlets were remarkably compliant. News stories that had
already been posted online after Robinson’s arrest at the Scottish
Live, The Mirror, RT, and Breitbart
News were promptly pulled down, although, curiously,
a report remained
up at the Independent, a
left-wing broadsheet that can be counted on to view Robinson as a
hooligan. Indeed, the Independent‘s
article described Robinson as “far-right” and, in explaining what he
was doing outside the courthouse, used scare quotes around the word
“reporting”; it then summed up the least appealing episodes in his
career and blamed him for an attack on the Finsbury Park Mosque last
January. Somehow, the Independentalso

all the articles in the British media pulled down “voluntarily”?
There is no way to know for sure. On Sunday, at about noon Central
European Time, one of my Facebook friends posted a link to
what was apparently a new story at Breitbart UK, about Robinson’s
imprisonment in Hull. Three hours later, however, the story was no
longer there. Shortly afterward, I clicked on a link to
an article at the Hull
Daily Mail that Google summed up as follows: “Supporters
of former EDL leader Tommy Robinson are urging people to write to
him in Hull Prison — where they say he is in ‘grave danger.'” When I
clicked on the link, however, the story had been pulled.

politics, and political correctness with wit and panache. He is

even sounded mournful.

minute or so into his video. “I’ve been saying it for ages… and
nobody listens.” He made it clear he was not about to violate the
gag order — not, as he put it, about to “blunder into the jaws of
the beast, in much the same way as I guess Tommy has,” and thus
“deliberately put myself in the line of fire with the UK government,
giving them just cause to arrest me.”

look on his face somehow brought home the dark reality underlying
Robinson’s fast-track arrest, trial, conviction and incarceration.
Benjamin emphasized that the most “sensible” thing for someone like
himself [Benjamin] to do right now — he used that word, “sensible,”
repeatedly — is to do his best to stay out of jail so that he can
continue to speak up. “I am in a country that is not free,” he
repeated gravely. “My options are limited… I feel jealous as hell of
you guys in America. You don’t know how lucky you are.”
upside — and the irony — of this case is that the gag order, while
silencing the British news media, has caused people around the world
to take notice. To be sure, a quick tour of major mainstream
newspaper websites in Western Europe, North America and around the
Anglosphere turned up nothing. But on alternative news sites around
Europe, the story was front and center. The Fox News website reported on
Robinson’s arrest — but even Fox, frustratingly, insisted on calling
him a “right-wing activist.”
