    FBI: Awans Security Clearances “Forged;” Granted Access to Congressional Intel

    Despite Falsified Vetting.

    Federal law enforcement agents working the Imran Awan and Hina Alvi fraud probe said the couple, along with other members of the family, were never properly vetted for Congressional security clearances.

    Instead the clearances, which provided the Awans access to dozens of Congressional Democrats computer networks and IT systems, were likely approved absent each individual background file getting “fully investigated.”

    “I seriously doubt they could have passed a full background (check),” one FBI insider said. “These clearances were pushed through.”

    FBI insiders used the word “forged” to describe the process of what happened to the Awan files. Federal law enforcement sources with knowledge of the case divulged:

        3. I have the same impression.

        "The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything. There would be no place to hide."  Frank Church "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat, 1848

      that this can drag down dws and the hope beyond hope also bring down HRH and the other higher up turd wayer scum.

      4. I wonder why such apparently incompetent people were considered so necessary.

      Who sold what bill of goods to get them in there and why?

        5. The Awan's had access to the other members computers. Thus they could

        inform their bosses on the secrets. Washington is all “who has the dirt on who”. The question is “Who got the Awans in, R or D?”.

            to spy on everyone.

            11. I fell they were hired to snoop on the other Democrats by the Democrats

            Situations like this is why the best person in the world can become a rep or senator and a few months out the are like the rest. Someone gathers information on them and holds it over them until they do what the people in charge want.

              12. ok, but still the question remains – why these guys from PAkiSTAN with

              visa issues?

              Why hire foreigners, espcially from pakistan?

              With documentation problems?

                14. they would do what you would want?

                A lot of foreign people are raised in a society where bribery, stealing are the normal way of doing things. They do not think anything about it.

                  15. well, maybe. but so would the mafia. i can't help thinking there's some

                  missing piece here.

                    19. Business people these days like to bring in the H1B folks as they can be

                    treated like slaves. Who ever brings them in really owns them. That was my experience at work. If they don’t do what you want, you have them sent back to what ever hell hole they came from. That will not work for a mafia person or western countries.

            20. Because competent people lock things down so that you can't spy.

            And the immigration issues are leverage so that you can keep them under control.

      7. Who helped push this through?

      I could easily be mistaken, but the system for this is like a machine. Imran Awan and his family members aren’t configured correctly to wind their way through the machine, it will balk. So some person or persons would have to step in and scootch along their applications at various points of the process. That might be have done by verbal directives, or it might have left a paper trail. Either way, let’s investigate.

      But no more of former FBI Director’s Jim Comey’s crazy standards for guilt, or allowing political appointees incredible leeway based on his experience that they’re incapable of following regulations. Save that for the plea bargaining, at which point I’ll truly be sympathetic. I won’t get my jollies from knowing they’ve gotten hammered, but rather by the exposure of the bullshit, and the record being set straight.

        13. the creepiest thing is that the Awans are seeming more and more like

        middlemen than the ultimate villain: that’s for DWS, who’s already approaching 0% approval like some cartoon villain

      8. Anyone daring to consider that there might have been an element of Abscam?

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abscam

      Maybe after Awan got caught doing something illegal, he got recruited? And that a lot of the courtroom stuff is partly smoke and mirrors to throw everyone off?

      The operation initially targeted trafficking in stolen property and corruption of prestigious businessmen, but was later converted to a public corruption investigation.

      Huh, trafficking in stolen property, isn’t that what the Awans are suspected of with office equipment?

        16. the story doesn't quite make sense as it stands and that's the

        best explanation i’ve heard so far.  to me it doesn’t make sense that they’d hire guys from pakistan with visa problems to do their dirty work.

          17. Yes…that is the question…

          Unless we have more investigations about Pakistan/US Relations:  :shrug:

          it doesn’t make sense that they’d hire guys from pakistan with visa problems to do their dirty work.

            18. wow; i hadn't heard this part (but it's the national review, so add salt)

            Abid Awan, while working “full-time” in Congress, ran a curious auto-retail business called “Cars International A” (yes, CIA), through which he was accused of stealing money and merchandise. In 2012, he discharged debts in bankruptcy (while scheming to keep his real-estate holdings). Congressional Democrats hired Abid despite his drunk-driving conviction a month before he started at the House, and they retained him despite his public-drunkenness arrest a month after. Beyond that, he and Imran both committed sundry vehicular offenses. In civil lawsuits, they are accused of life-insurance fraud.

            pakistan-us relations per wikipedia:

            Despite a worsening of relations following the election of the left-oriented Pakistan Peoples Party under Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, relations quickly improved and deepened during Operation Cyclone in the 1980s, which was directed against Soviet expansion in Central Asia and South Asia, by funding and training Muslim mujahideen in Afghanistan to combat the Soviet Union.

            Relations once again soured after the collapse of the Soviet Union, when the United States approved sanctions against Pakistan by passing the Pressler amendment, which was enacted against Pakistan for its nuclear weapons program, which was initiated after the war with India in 1971 and accelerated after India detonated a nuclear bomb in 1974.

            Pakistan once again assumed an important role in American geopolitical interests in the region following the attacks of September 11th, 2001, and the subsequent War on Terror. Relations were strengthened as the United States named Pakistan a major non-NATO ally in 2002 – which allowed for the release of over $25 billion of aid to Pakistan.[1][2]

            American recovery efforts following the 2005 Kashmir earthquake were widely appreciated by the Pakistani public.Relations began to strain as both sides began to criticize one another’s strategy in the War on Terror, with the United States government frequently accusing Pakistan of harboring members of the Afghan Taliban and Quetta Shura, while Pakistan has alleged that the United States has done little to control security in eastern Afghanistan, where Pakistan’s most-wanted terrorist, Mullah Fazlullah is believed to be hiding. Furthermore, as a result of the Raymond Allen Davis incident in Lahore, the secret U.S. operation in Abbottabad which resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden, followed by the Salala incident, relations between the two countries became increasingly strained in recent years with high levels of mistrust. Public opinion in Pakistan frequently ranks the U.S. one of its least favored countries, and vice versa.[3] In 2015, according to Gallup’s annual World Affairs survey, 15% of Americans had a favorable view of Pakistan.[4]

            The United States today engages in extensive economic, social, and scientific assistance as well as vital military relations with Pakistan,[5] while Pakistan continues to occupy a strategic position in the United States’ interests in Central and South Asia. The United States is the second-largest supplier of military equipment to Pakistan after China, and is one of Pakistan’s largest donors of foreign assistance.[6][7][8]
