According to a recent report by the Daily Caller, Imran Awan, the embattled Democratic House IT aide, still has an active email account on the House computer system.  Awan’s email address, 123@mail.house.gov, is linked to Nathan Bennett, who works for Representative André Carson (D-IN).

Bennett currently works as Rep. Carson’s Deputy Chief of Staff. Currently, Carson is a member of the House Intelligence Committee, the House Homeland Security Committees, and is a ranking member of the House Intelligence Subcommittee on Emerging Threats.

When questioned about the email address, Bennett stated that he has no control over that account.  Bennett went on to add that: “However this happened, it was not with my consent or control…For the record, I do not, nor have I ever, had control of the 123@mail.house.gov email account or any other account connected with Imran Awan or his family.”

According to one Democratic IT aide, Awan and Carson were very close, and used to play video games together in Carson’s office. The aide added that Awan had been teaching Carson a foreign language.

This comes just weeks after reports emerged indicating that federal authorities had opened an investigation as to whether the Awans stolen sensitive data, which they may have then sold to Russian or Pakistani intelligence. Disobedient Media previously reported that the scope of the scandal may be much wider than has been covered thus far by establishment press, with intelligence potentially having being passed to countries including Israel, Saudi Arabia and China via Pakistan’s intelligence agency, the ISI.

Since this news broke, Imran Awan has hired Christopher Gowen as his attorney. Gowen had previously worked for the Clinton campaign and the Clinton Foundation. The case against the Awan family was brought by the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia, run by Obama appointee, Channing D. Phillips. Phillips had previously served for one year as the Deputy Associate Attorney General under Eric Holder, before serving as Holder’s Chief Counselor for the next four years. This has raised concerns of bias surrounding the investigation of such politically well connected individuals.

Phillips’ ties to the Democratic Party run very deep. In 1968, Phillips father, Channing E. Phillips, headed the presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy. That same year, Phillips led the delegation from the District of Columbia to the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

Phillips, who was appointed in October of 2015, has yet to be approved by the Senate. President Trumps’ appointee to replace Phillips is Jessie K. Liu.  However, the confirmation process has been slowed, as the Senate received notification of Liu’s appointment on June 15, but did not add it to their calendar until August 3.

Further complicating the case is the role of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s brother, Steven Wasserman.  Steve Wasserman has served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia for the past 14 years. His involvement in this case in light of the relationship between Imran Awan and Debbie Wasserman Schultz has become the subject of much debate over the past few months as investigators attempt to determine the scope of the data breach.

Despite these and many other issues surrounding the Awan scandal, legacy media has remained virtually silent on the proceedings. This is an important ongoing story and Disobedient Media will continue to provide coverage as it unfolds.

9 Thoughts on “Media Silent As Awan Scandal Deepens”

  • I find this whole story and case so strange and so interesting, I feel like I must be crazy. Why am I the only person I know following this?!? I’m afraid to even mention it to people because I’d sound like a nut if I bring it up. Then I would be called a russian bot and then a nazi, even though neither Nazis nor Russians or Nazi bots have anything to do with this story It just has unanswered questions.

    • Confront, educate & red pill everyone…anyone! I stopped giving af (except professional repercussions) when We, as a Nation, faced another clinton occupation of Our WH!

      Watch Breitbart vids on YouTube for inspiration!

    This is what Mueller and company should be investigating, not the asinine Russian propaganda BS that Trump colluded with Putin to win the election.
    Passing government information to foreign governments is an act of treason, or least an act of espionage.

    The number of congress members who are involved with the Awans is around 20-30. For what reason would they have to go with a foreign IT company instead of an American one?

    And of course our mainstream media is ignoring this.
    Great article.
    I can’t wait to see where this goes.,

    • They had better get hard provable facts or all this smells of deflection and diversion away from our vanity riddled narcisticlly driven Trump.

      • You mean like the hard, provable facts the Dems have on Russia and Trump? This will prove to be the biggest scandal in America politics. Trump gets his appointees and the lame stream media won’t be able to cover up for the corrupt Dems!

      • I don’t think this is a distraction from the Russian propaganda. The fact that the media isn’t covering it makes me think that this is a true story and crime. And just like Hillary got to skate on her email server problem, these people might skate too.
        But you could be correct, who really knows what’s true anymore?

        • The truth is always the opposite of what comes out of Washington and the main stream media, is a good starting point. RT is more factual.

    • And Awan hired his friend who is a terrorist to encode blackberries to Congress! So now a foreign terrorist has all USA intel! Clear and present danger!

  • Wasserman investigating Wasserman-Schultz is definitely an obvious conflict of interest. As for the MSM, I quit their cable networks and websites after they thoroughly botched election coverage. Even as they were exposed as incompetents, they changed nothing.
