In relating an example of insanely lax cybersecurity on the part of the DNC and Hillary’s 2016 campaign --- the “iPhone left in the ladies’ room” incident --- I mentioned that the breach of security by the mysterious Awan family from Pakistan was a story unto itself. So let’s take a fresh look at it today, because it may be the biggest head-scratcher of them all. The whole thing just doesn’t make sense.

Now, class, what do we assume when something makes no sense? Answer: that there’s at least one very important piece of the puzzle still missing. If that’s where your mind goes whenever something doesn’t make logical sense, you get an “A.”

Recall that in February of last year, the House Inspector General’s office notified several House offices of a criminal probe into the activities of five members of the Awan family, who had been working as IT staffers for 40 (!) Democratic Congressional offices. These people had reportedly been subjected to no background checks whatsoever, which is hard to fathom considering all the emails and confidential files they had access to. In fact, two of the brothers had criminal records. Since 2009, the family has netted $4 million for their work for the Democrats, having been paid salaries three times what the average House IT staffer makes. As I’ve mentioned before, they were able to log in with usernames and passwords of members of Congress, even to access the servers of those for whom they didn’t work. This included members of highly sensitive committees, and would certainly have captured the files of Republicans, too. (A spy might kill for access like that, and not just on TV.)

With all the hyperventilating about Russia, this story has received scant media attention, though the Daily Caller News Foundation has been on top of it. If you’d like to refresh your memory on the stunning details, here is a very well-written article about it from the site American Greatness. It does read like a spy novel.

Now that the DNC has filed a lawsuit against all those it suspects of hacking and leaking information damaging to Hillary’s 2016 campaign, it’s time to take a deeper look at the Democrats’ odd approach to cybersecurity. They insist on pointing fingers at the Trump campaign and the Russian government when their own security was so lax that a typical 10-year-old could have breached it. In fact, compelling evidence has been brought forward to suggest information that ended up leaked by WikiLeaks wasn’t hacked from the DNC, but rather leaked from within.

Funny that as open as the DNC was with the Awan family regarding the information on its servers, it refuses access to the FBI. But, hey, why should we need a forensic investigation to find out who breached their security when we have the word of Debbie Wasserman Schultz?

That’s not quite enough for Republican strategist Roger Stone, who is on that long list of defendants named in that crazy lawsuit. He plans to use discovery to examine those DNC servers “to test the basic underlying claims that ‘Russians’ hacked, stole and disseminated DNC data, rather than the various other plausible scenarios, including internal theft,” as his lawyers wrote in a letter to the DNC.

Of course, they were already well aware that they can’t let it go that far, and that’s the tipoff that this is just a stunt. They hope the bogus lawsuit helps them keep their likewise-bogus “Russia” narrative going through the midterm elections before it’s dropped or conveniently thrown out of court.

    When I first heard Wasserman-Schultz attacking the Capital Police for taking a laptop, I smelled a rat. Mainly her, of course. Then the information about that Awan family eventually came out, not vented and drawing $4 million?? And, of course, not a DemonRat has been investigated, charged or arrested!!

    Must I forever see these evil deeds? Why must I watch all this misery? Wherever I look, I see destruction and violence. I am surrounded by people who love to argue and fight. The law has become paralyzed, and there is no justice in the courts. The wicked far outnumber the righteous, so that justice has become perverted.
    Sound familiar? It is from Habakkuk 1:3-4 (NLT).
    P. S. Keep reading.

    dems are more and more pathetic every day. If their servers ARE finally examined and it is discovered that they were NOT hacked by Russians this whole narrative and a special counsel, blows up in their face. And it would appear the dems would be humiliated before the world. I like many others DEMAND the servers be examined so we find out WHO in the dem party hacked. maybe some jail time for some high profile players would do the country good and destroy the socialist-communist party once and for all. Integrity in government since 1964 has become decreasingly apparent. And the new movie about Ted Kennedy will likely shine a light on that!

    They do not need to test the basic underlying claims that “Russians” hacked, stole, and disseminated DNC data. It has already been proven beyond any doubt, without any further questioning necessary, that the data was taken from a server, in the eastern time zone, and put on removable storage media. It could not have been uploaded to the internet from the server, because the file contained info on the speed of the transfer, and at the time there were no internet connections on the planet fast enough for the speed that the file was written to the removable media. All files have this basic info in their headers. If they want to find the actual machine it was transferred from, all they need to do is examine all machine's Seth Rich had access to, although finding the machine is irrelevant, knowing that it came from an internal leak, blows the whole basis for their lawsuits. By now, the DNC has bleach bitted, and smashed with hammers, the drive that the file was written from. They know exactly how and when the data was taken, and made sure no one will ever talk. Hmmm, maybe we should watch for mysterious accidents of DNC IT employees in DC, especially if the drives get subpoenaed during the discovery phase of these DNC lawsuits.
