Remember this guy? He and his family members worked for the House of Representatives doing who knows what with vital US secrets.
Well, the Democrats have quietly paid him off for his pain and suffering at the hands of the “right-wing media.” (Ha! Ha!)
From Frontpage magazine (hat tip: Judy):
Democrats Pay Off Intrusive IT Man Imran Awan
And Biden taps Awan’s collaborator Xavier Becerra for HHS boss.
“Congress Pays $850,000 to Muslim Aides Targeted in Inquiry Stoked by Trump,” reads the November 25 New York Times headline. According to the story, the previously unreported settlement is one of the largest to resolve discrimination or harassment claims, in this case by people who “lost their jobs and endured harassment in part because of their Muslim faith and South Asian origins.”
Reporters Noam Scheiber and Nicholas Fandos give no date for settlement and do not explain why it was “previously unreported.” Congress reportedly made the payment but the only House member quoted is Florida Democrat Ted Deutch, a leading figure in Democrats’ charge that candidate Donald Trump was guilty of collusion with Russia and a vocal proponent of impeaching President Trump.
“It is tragic and outrageous the way right-wing media and Republicans all the way up to President Trump attempted to destroy the lives of an immigrant Muslim-American family based on scurrilous allegations,” Deutch told Sheiber and Fandos. As they explain, the settlement was also “an attempt to bring a close to a convoluted saga that led to one of the most durable — and misleading — story lines of the Trump era.”
What started as “a relatively ordinary House inquiry into procurement irregularities by Imran Awan, three members of his family and a friend, who had a bustling practice providing members of Congress with technology support, was twisted into lurid accusations of hacking government information.” That side of the story could use more detail.
Of all the IT people in all the IT firms in all the world, House Democrats thought Imran Awan was best man for the job. Sometimes working from his native Pakistan, Awan and his family team accessed the computers of some 40 Democrats, including those on the intelligence and foreign affairs committees. Without their consent Awan and his team stashed the Democrats’ data on a server controlled by Xavier Becerra, chair of the House Democratic Caucus.
Capitol Police wanted a copy of the server but the one Awan produced turned out to be a fake. In February, 2017, Awan and his team got booted off the House computer network, but Becerra had already fled to California where Gov. Jerry Brown made him state attorney general. Becerra had nothing to say about Awan’s IT intrigue, and he got additional protection from federal judge Tanya S. Chutkan.
Interesting tidbit here: Shahid Imran Awan got here by ‘winning’ the green card lottery another immigration scam on the American people.
I wonder if there is more information about this case that the President might see fit to declassify? With the public no longer trusting the FBI/DOJ you never know what they might be hiding.
Now for your daily chuckle!
I have been itching for an opportunity to post the video of bumbling Biden announcing a big job for Becerra. Listen to him completely butcher the name and not even know that the Department of Health, Education and….. hasn’t existed since 1979!
It really is pathetic how the crooked Dems used this mentally incompetent man.
Not even “President Elect” yet and already filling imaginary cabinet positions with fictitious people… sure this was a fair & just election- nothing to see here! Exactly what is the department of “Health and education ggddhuuv”? pic.twitter.com/Im6FZWiQox

LOL! Wouldn’t you like to know what Queen Kamala is saying behind that mask!
I bet it goes like this: ‘Keep it up Joe and I will be President before you spend one night in the White House!’
