The Daily Caller News Foundation Editor-In-Chief Christopher Bedford explained Sunday who the “mystery man” from Pakistan the president referenced Friday really is.
Former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz hired a Pakistani IT worker — Imran Awan — to be her e-mail server administrator while she served in the House of Representatives. Nearly every member of Awan’s family went on to work for Democrat members, until they were on the payroll of 1 in 5 House Democrats.
During their time at the House, the Awan’s had the “keys to the kingdom,” with the ability to access nearly every file on House servers, the chamber’s inspector general said.
The Awan’s were making “unauthorized access” to data, the House inspector general warned leadership in September 2016. The Awan’s behavior mirrored a “classic method for insiders to exfiltrate data from an organization,” the inspector general said.
After the inspector general presented that information, the Caucus’ server physically disappeared. Despite warnings, The Awan’s were left on House servers until Feb. 2, 2017.
