Three Brothers Working for (Democrat) Congressional IT Department Are Suddenly Forced From Their Jobs on Suspicion of Intruding Into Intelligence Computers, But They Media Isn't Interested in the Story At All

Let this short clip from Maria Bartiromo (from a couple of weeks ago; sorry I didn't cover this then) catch you up quickly.

The Daily Caller News Foundation wrote about this two weeks ago:

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 hosta told TheDCNF Friday.

....

A criminal investigation into five unnamed people began late last year related to serious and potentially illegal violations of House IT policies, Politico reported Thursday. Chiefs of staff for the members were briefed Thursday by the Sergeant-at-Arms.

Capitol Police spokeswoman Eva Malecki said the investigation was still ongoing, and arrests have not been made but staff were "asked to update their security settings."

Despite brief mentions on Politico and Buzzfeed, no one in the media seemed very interested in the story.

Now House Conservatives say they want to investigate this non-fake-news story of illegal hacking with possible connections to hostile foreign powers:

House conservatives want to investigate three IT employees, all brothers, suspected of compromising the networks of Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

Conservative Republicans -- disappointed in House Democrats for hushing up the issue and in the media for failing to widely report the story -- hope the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform (HOGR) will examine how House Democratic offices allowed the potential breach in national security information.


...

Perry, who first heard the story on WMAL radio Monday morning, more than a week after TheDCNF first reported the story, expressed frustration that the media isn't giving the story more attention and that, in the initial reports he heard, "not one name was mentioned."

We should definitely trust our Deep State pencil-pusher overlords, though.
