A very long post because of my answer (below) to this Session Bailout!

Sessions DOJ Declares 'No Evidence' Imran Awan Broke Law with Congress's Computer Systems

Quote
The Department of Justice (DOJ) revealed a plea deal Tuesday to Imran Awan — former IT staffer for top House Democrats — which states the federal government found “no evidence” that Awan “violated federal law with respect to House computer systems.” The plea deal states:

    The Government has uncovered no evidence that your client violated federal law with respect to the House computer systems. Particularly, the Government has found no evidence that your client illegally removed House data from the House network or from House Members’ offices, stole the House Democratic Caucus Server, stole or destroyed House information technology equipment, or improperly accessed or transferred government information, including classified or sensitive information.

The DOJ’s offer allows Awan to plead guilty to making a false statement on a loan or credit application; a violation of 18 U.S. Code § 1014. Although the crime carries a maximum sentence of 30 years imprisonment and a fine possibly exceeding $1,000,000 with restitution and interest penalties, the DOJ estimates a prison sentence of between zero and six months and a fine between $500 and $9,500 in the event of Awan’s acceptance of its terms.

The offer includes dismissal of all charges against Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, listed in an August-issued indictment. It expires at the end of the day.

Awan, a Pakistani national, managed IT services for more than 20 congressional Democrats, including former DNC chairwoman Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) over several years.

Democratic IT Aide Says Imran Awan Solicited Bribe From Him In Exchange For Contract With Then-Rep. Gwen Graham
(Democrat-Florida)

Quote
Democratic IT aide Imran Awan solicited a bribe from an IT vendor in exchange for contracting opportunities with the office of then-Rep. Gwen Graham, the vendor alleged to The Daily Caller News Foundation, adding that Imran spoke to him in detail about his alleged financial fraud schemes in the House.

The Department of Justice knows of the source — the longtime owner of a major House IT company — and what he is prepared to testify, a high-level official in Jeff Sessions’ DOJ with knowledge of the investigation confirmed. But the vendor said no law enforcement ever even tried to interview them.

**SNIP**

“Imran said, ‘There is this new member from Florida named Graham, let’s make a deal and I’ll get you into this office,’” the vendor said. He was clear in his allegation that Imran was soliciting a cash bribe.

During Sept 2016, The Awan clan continued to use Cong Xavier Becerra’s House Democratic Caucus computers in anomalous ways:

<><> logging on as “system administrators”

<><> changing identities

<><> logging onto Cong Becerra’s server using 17 different user account credentials

<><> some credentials belonged to Democrat House members

<><> the Awans did not work for 9 of the 17 offices to which user accounts belonged.

<><> investigations found “possible storage of sensitive House information” outside the House

<><> Dropbox is installed on two Democratic Caucus computers used by the suspects

<><> user accounts had thousands of files in their Dropbox folder on each computer

<><> Using Dropbox is against House rules because it uploads files offsite.

<><> Wash/Po reported “Based on the file names, some of the information is likely sensitive.”

<><> post-awan clean up discovered many computer set-ups were little more than “thin clients”

<><> computer set-ups were portals to an outside computer.

<><> Awans were using terminal servers from a computer in a different location.

<><>Virtual Private Networks can make a server’s hard drive appear to be local to a computer.

<><> remote sessions remained active for months at a time.

<><> data was always out of the members’ possession

<><> the Awans were using Becerra’s House Democratic Caucus as their central service warehouse.

<><> the Awans collectively logged onto Becerra’s Caucus system 5,735 times, avg 27 per day

<><> other offices were accessed less than 60 times.

<><> the pattern of login activity suggests steps were taken to conceal their activity

<><>aggregating multiple members’ data means all that data was absconded with

<><> L/E said Becerra’s entire Democratic Caucus server physically disappeared while being monitored by L/E.

<><> no scenario exists where the Awan clan’s access was appropriate

<><> House members are not allowed to accept services from people not on their payroll

<><> House employees are not permitted to log in to servers of members for whom they do not work.

<><> House policies are codified by law.

Logical thinking.
Why was the case against AWAN filed under BANK FRAUD?
The result today is re: BANK FRAUD.

The Feds didn’t find any evidence...
1) never examined the mysterious laptop computer that was found in a “telephone booth” in the Capitol

2) major server is said by the Sgt at Arms to have “disappeared”, with implication that a lookalike device had been substituted.

3) vast quantities of smashed hard drive parts found at an Awan residence.

Nope, no evidence found.

I find with each new day I trust the FBI and DOJ less and less each day.  It going to take some time to clean them out of b o and Hillary's people.

Hopefully, once convictions begin, it'll snowball.

Sounds good,  Sooooo!!  If I remember correctly he still has State charges against him in Virginia,
plus Federal Charges in the Eastern District.  The DC court was probably correct as far as DC is concerned.
As listed above there are a whole lot of violations of computer and computer security rules and guidelines
for the House of Reps, but most likely not in the law.  Remember he was caught destroying the hard drives
in Virginia...

Q indicates this will keep him around for a bit, and most likely he will go States Evidence.

I agree but what is pizzing me off is Sessions is a Trump appointee! It might as well be Eric Holder back in office...the results are similar.
You make me wanna roll my windows down and Cruz!

We did not get this way over night.  IF Trump can clean 75% of this up in the next two years that would be great.   Then he is for the next 4 years.
