Awan Brothers: House IT Aides Fear Suspects In Hill Breach Are Blackmailing Members With Their Own Data

Congressional technology aides are baffled that data-theft allegations against four former House IT workers — who were banned from the congressional network — have largely been ignored, and they fear the integrity of sensitive high-level information.
Imran Awan and three relatives were colleagues until police banned them from computer networks at the House of Representatives after suspicion the brothers accessed congressional computers without permission.
Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them.

The Lawyer Bringing The Lawsuit Against The DNC Speaks Out

In this latest episode of Redacted Tonight VIP, Lee Camp talks to Jared Beck, the attorney leading the lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee, and its former leader Debbie Wasserman Schultz, for rigging the 2016 Democratic Primary for Hillary Clinton. Beck goes into detail with Lee about how Bernie Sanders and his supporters got screwed by an organization that, according to court hearings, felt no obligation to be transparent or impartial during the election process. While one would think such a blatant disrespect for the democratic process would get more play in the mainstream media, it's falling on deaf ears. In the second half, Lee Camp gets into the importance of the release of prisoner Chelsea Manning, who was originally sentenced to 35 years for revealing classified information about inhumane behavior in the U.S. military, including the slaughter of innocent civilians. Manning isn't the only one who suffered the worst for revealing the ugly truth about our country. Lee digs into other examples of how our government has made a habit of punishing people whose only mission was to reveal abuses in our society. Voting is beautiful, be beautiful ~ vote.©
