WASHINGTON – Democrats may have a major national security hacking scandal on their hands that’s on the brink of exploding into public view.

Investigators, including Capitol Police, have been looking into whether classified or other sensitive information has been hacked by former information technology, or IT, staffers employed by Democrats in Congress.

Now, a source has confirmed to WND that the problem is so big, it is being handled as a criminal matter. And the source says suspects will likely receive prison sentences.

Philip Haney, a former Department of Homeland Security officer and co-author of “See Something, Say Nothing,” a book about his effort to expose the U.S. governments capitulation to Islamic supremacists, said the case will be a bellwether.
A House committee that deals with security-related issues is cooperating with Capitol Police in their investigation, according to the source.

Politico initially reported two weeks ago that five House employees were under investigation for possible equipment theft and unauthorized access of House IT systems.

Then the Daily Caller reported the focus has been on three brothers, Abid, Imran and Jamal Awan, “suspected of compromising the networks of Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and House Committee on Foreign Affairs.”

The Awan brothers were all barred from access to House computer systems then fired, apparently sometime in the last 10 days, after the story initially broke.

Last week, Frontpage Magazine reported the brothers are Muslims from Pakistan, but that has not been reported elsewhere and WND could not independently confirm it.

The brothers were not employed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence or the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, but their services were shared by the offices of numerous Democratic Party lawmakers.

I think I have an idea. Mexico has stated it wants to extradite and try those responsible for Fast and Furious, which killed hundreds of people. If they can deliver legal documents sufficient to gain the extradition of Obama and Holder to Mexico, President Trump can have them detained and held for an extradition hearing. This is a battle for keeps. Obama is trying to bring down the Trump presidency and install a Soviet style government. Removing him will kill that conspiracy. Obama is truly the Aaron Burr of our day. A traitor to the nation. But if we have him tried in Mexico, we don't have to bother with treason evidence and trial here.

A few more cockroaches in a Mexican prison won't be noticed.

Would anyone like to make a small wager on the outcome of this, or any other, "investigation" into recent democrat party escapades?

I'm betting on the side of "nothing will happen but a bunch of media blather and politician squealing".

I think I can afford as much as $0.25, if my pension check continues to arrive as promised.
