Since the election, Democrats have made a big stink about Russian hacking and data breaches.
But there was another more serious data breach that occurred right under everyone’s nose.
And the implications are bone chilling.
Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan are brothers who worked as top Democratic staffers for members of the House Select Committee on Intelligence.
They are under criminal investigation for accessing members’ computers without permission and stealing data.
The Daily Caller reports:
“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.
