Events are continuing to escalate in the scandal involving Ex-Democrat IT Aide Imran Awan, the now indicted employee of former Democratic National Comittee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and dozens of other congresspeople. Earlier this week, Congressman Trent Franks said he expected Awan to reveal some ‘very disturbing’ information about Debbie Wasserman Schultz through a possible plea deal with prosecutors.
We previously highlighted some of the recent developments which could have Debbie worried that Imran Awan, and her fellow establishment politicians, may soon turn on her to protect others higher in the chain of corruption. Including “the move by prosecutors to give Awan the laptop owned by Wasserman Schultz [a device Schultz had threatened police to return in an attempt to shut down the investigation], the decision by Awan’s wife to return to the United States to give testimony, statements from politicians like congressman Franks suggesting that Schultz will be exposed through the trial, and fellow Democrats asking her to ‘just go away’.”
The discovery of a secret server which Awan allegedly used to secretly hold data on House Democrats was reportedly behind law enforcement’s decision to ban him from the House computers.
Another potential new lead, involves the recent discovery of Imran Awan’s still active e-mail address, email@example.com, which is registered under the name of Democratic Rep. André Carson.
Carson was one of the last Democrats to fire Awan after the investigation had become known. Another Democratic IT aide told the Daily Caller that Carson and Awan played video games in Carson’s office. And as the DCNF previously reported Carson’s office appears unconcerned about the fact that Awan was using a “secret email address using the name of his deputy chief of staff.”
This has created more possible leads in the case. As today researcher George Webb shared a link to a Steam Account which appears to be tied to the same firstname.lastname@example.org address used by Awan, Webb speculates that this is possible evidence that Representative Andre Carson may have been fooled by Awan into verifying the House email address for video games, and that this move by Awan would have resulted in a huge security breach potentially “opening a pipe to Pakistan” through Steam’s messaging system.
