Former Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wassermann Schultz has just come under fire for her ties to her information technology staffers.
Right Wing News reported that Imran Awan worked for Wasserman Schultz for thirteen years since she came into office in 2004 as a Florida representative. Awan and his two brothers were relieved of their duties in February of 2017 after they came under suspicion for accessing specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.
It has just been revealed that the Awan brothers’ server with much of the key evidence to the case has gone missing. In a 2016 briefing to House leadership, the inspector general said their activity was suspicious in part because the IT workers had taken steps to conceal their identities.
“Excessive logons are an indication that the server is being used for nefarious purposes and elevated the risk that individuals could be reading and/or removing information,” the inspector general said at the time. He went on to warn of the risk that the server could be used as a repository to store documents “taken from other offices or evidence of other illicit activity.”
“We have not been permitted to view content of the files on these workstations. However, based on the file names, some of the information is likely sensitive,” he continued before warning House leadership that the accounts could have been used to exfiltrate information.
“While file-sharing sites, such as Dropbox, have legitimate business purposes, use of such sites is also a classic method for insiders to exfiltrate data from an organization,” he said.
It’s incredibly fishy that this server has gone missing, and it’s clear that Democrats are desperately trying to cover this up. We can only hope that President Donald Trump is able to get to the bottom of this and hold Wasserman Schultz and her fellow Democrats accountable for what they did!
