Largest Political Scandal in US History? Feds Investigating Whether Wasserman Schultz Aide Imran Awan Sold Secrets to Russians
Are Democrats about to be caught in the largest political scandal in US history?
So why was he hanging around Wasserman Schultz for 13 years?
Federal officials are investigating whether sensitive information was passed from Imran Awan to the Russian or Pakistani governments.
The New York Post reported:
Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say.
What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects.
Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.
“This is a massive, massive scandal,” a senior US official familiar with the widening probe told The Post.
