House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs Committee Members Compromised By Rogue IT Staff

DC: Three brothers who managed office information technology for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were abruptly relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission.

Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.

Also among those whose computer systems may have been compromised is Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida Democrat who was previously the target of a disastrous email hack when she served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 campaign.

The brothers are suspected of serious violations, including accessing members’ computer networks without their knowledge and stealing equipment from Congress.

Jamal handled IT for Rep. Joaquin Castro, a Texas Democrat who serves on both the intelligence and foreign affairs panels.

“As of 2/2, his employment with our office has been terminated,” Castro spokeswoman Erin Hatch told TheDCNF Friday.

Jamal also worked for Louisiana Democrat Rep. Cedric Richmond, who is on the Committee on Homeland Security.

Imran worked for Reps. Andre Carson, an Indiana Democrat, and Jackie Speier, a California Democrat. Both are members of the intelligence committee, and their spokesmen did not respond to TheDCNF’s requests for comment. Imran also worked for the House office of Wasserman Schultz.

  1. Aren’t those middle eastern names? In charge oh IT for Foreign Affairs! I wonder who caught on?

  2. SWAP moles are so hard to spot!

    Not like Philby, Ames, et alia, who were so easy to spot.

    Carson? Isn’t he a Muslim? Hmmm, It looks like “the imams” have had broadband access to D.C. via these Datan rimmers.

  3. The dems are not capable of being trusted with computers. They are putting our national security at risk. The password is password.

  4. Obama supported, financed and armed Islamic terrorists, fact.
    Islamic operatives were placed in our Federal Government in high security compartmental areas.
    Who vetted these appointments and hires?
    Were they the same Obama/Clinton operatives who vetted the radical Islamic terrorists who were allowed in the US as “Refugees” ?
    Just one more effort by Obama to undermine the US and cause violent chaos across the country.
    The Soros funded and Islamic refugees are supporting and in concert with BLM, anarchists, fascists, communists, Marxists, Democrats and other left wing funded organizers.
    A whirlwind of Chaos is the aim.

  5. The plan was that they were all supposed to report to Huma.

    And Machloja is right. I hope that there is a thorough review of Congressional IT staff going on.

  6. No rational person has reason to assume the Democrats were completely oblivious to the possibility, if not the fact, of the infiltration and compromise.

    Never, ever trust Leftists. They want to destroy everything you believe in and take everything you have.

  7. “Jamal, who public records suggest is only 22 years old and first began working in the House when he was 20, was paid nearly $160,000 a year, or three times the average House IT staff salary, according to InsideGov, which tracks congressional salaries. Abid was paid $161,000 and Imran $165,000.”


  8. God knows who Hank Johnson and John Lewis have working for them. Makes me wonder about that DHS unauthorized accessing of the Georgia SOS computers.

  9. When I have your equipment I don’t need network access, I have your data, I own you. The dems still don’t get IT.

  10. Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan: Three good old Irish names.

    I’m sure the information went right to the Ayatollah Khameni.

  11. Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan.

    The people that hired them are too stupid to live. They bring absolutely nothing good to society. They should be transferred to the Northwest where euthanasia is legal and then be done with it. I apologize to there families but I care more about the country than you.

    You demmies are the most ignorant people ever I believe. Trump won’t have to spend a dime to win in 2020, you are running the best campaign for him ever.


  12. Not to worry, I am sure all three were thoroughly vetted by the Obama administration. Besides, what greater security breach could there be than having democrats on the select committee for intel?

  13. Not one.
    Not two.
    But THREE brothers of questionable backgrounds with access to the most top secret information in the country.
    Stupid politicians in charge of that fiasco.

  14. Of course these dumb asses thought they were going to prove something to us by hiring trustworthy, patriotic Muslims. And all from the same litter, no less. As far as I’m concerned they got exactly what they deserved and only proved we continue to be right. These three belong in federal prison for a long time and should go there directly after Trump appoints an investigator to stick a microscope up the collective asses of the IT department.

  15. Jeff Sessions will have his hands full for the next 4-8 years. Audit the bank accounts of the democrat operatives, Congress, Senate, etc. and see how many deposits are traced to the Saudis.

  16. Couldn’t the Dems at least outsourced to Indian tech service? But, nooo they had to go bottom of the barrel Pakistani.

  17. Abid, Imran, and Jamal

    Arab for Larry, Moe and Curly.

    You just know there’s a Shemp back at home coordinating the flow of info.

  18. Is it possible these guys tipped off the terrorist in Yemen about the planned SEAL raid? It seems possible the HIFAC may have had documents about the planned raid, scheduled for the darkness of a new moon.

  19. I have located so much available info on these infiltrators. OMG, these clowns are the tip of the 5th column iceberg. and lets just say it seems to be a family and friends thing here.

    did you hear about it on the mainstream media news channels too?

    nope, neither did I

    but hey, at least the patriots won the super bowl, am i right? cus we all know this is way more important then this little security bump in the road thing a ma gig. Pppfft!!!
