Key Evidence Goes Missing in New Dem Scandal

Florida Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz employed now indicted IT staffer Imran Awan for 13 years. 

Awan and his brothers were begrudgingly fired after a lengthy investigation discovered they accessed restricted computer networks for the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees without permission – also known as hacking.

Although federal prosecutors seemed willing to extend Imran a plea deal (RELATED: NEW Dem Scandal Explodes With Possible Plea Deal), we're suddenly finding out the Awan brothers' server along with compelling evidence in the case has gone missing.

The bombshell could turn the painstaking hacking probe into disarray. (The Epoch Times)

The server had disappeared just weeks before Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), who was the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, left his position to become California’s attorney general.

Police had informed Becerra that the server was the subject of an investigation and had requested a copy of it, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported last year, based on an account from a senior official.

The official also said that the police were provided with an elaborate falsified image of the server.

According to the inspector general, the Awans made numerous unauthorized logins to systems of House members. Besides the members they worked for, they also accessed servers of 15 House representatives they didn’t work for.

The information stored on the congressional server is considered extremely sensitive and contained Members of Congress' personally identifiable information (contact information, e-mails, medical records, and even Social Security numbers).
