Awan and his brothers springs back to life. Why does Judicial Watch have to do all the heavy lifting without any cooperation from the DOJ? It is about time Barr got control of his department and cleaned up his particular part of the swamp. Talk about a surprise. Good old Deb Wasserman-Swartz must be sweating bullets.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch filed multiple FOIA lawsuits seeking documents related to the Imran Awan Democrat IT scandal and just last month the DOJ responded by saying they couldn’t produce any documents related to Awan due to “technical difficulties.”
A hearing was ordered following the Court’s demand to know why no records were produced in the Awan case after the DOJ filed documents under seal.
The hearing is scheduled for today January 15 at 10 AM ET.
Judicial Watch reported:
Judicial Watch announced today that a federal court yesterday ordered a snap hearing after the Justice Department submitted information under seal on Friday following the court’s demand for an explanation of why no records have been produced in the ongoing legal battle for documents about the Congressional Democrat IT (information technology) scandal involving the Awan brothers. The hearing is set for tomorrow, January 15, at 10 am.
In a joint status report filed on December 5, 2019, Judicial Watch reported to the court that the DOJ claimed in a phone call that it was now unable to produce any records to either of the FOIA requests “because the agency was waiting for some unspecified action by Judge [Tanya S.] Chutkan in some other matter so as to avoid having to produce records in this case.” In that same report the DOJ told the court that Judge Chutkan is “presiding over a related sealed criminal matter” that prohibits the government from releasing the requested FOIA information.
In a hearing last month, U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta expressed frustration and ordered the Justice Department to explain its failure to produce records by January 10 and to provide Judicial Watch some details about the delay. Instead, the Justice Department made its filing under seal and has yet to provide Judicial Watch with any details about its failure to produce records as promised to the court.
“The cover-up of the Awan Brothers Democratic IT scandal shows the FBI and DOJ’s penchant for dishonesty isn’t just limited to FISA abuse,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The DOJ’s handling of the Awan Brothers case has long been an issue of concern and now we are expected believe some secret investigation prevents the public from knowing the full truth about this scandal. We are skeptical.”
Did we ever think it would come to be?

It’s not an unreasonable suspicion that the US Attorney’s office for the District of Columbia, which brought the indictment, could be intentionally blowing the Imran Awan case. You’ll forgive us for being suspicious that the US Attorney’s office in DC, on the roster of which sits one Steven Wasserman, the brother of Debbie. For more on Awan see
Maybe this had something to do with it?
“This was a call from the top, Comey and McCabe,” a well-placed FBI agent said. “Anyone else would have been held and with that cash she didn’t declare she could have been locked up. The agents at Dulles wanted to hold her but they were told to stand down.”
Alvi Awan was suspected of helping swindle $283,000 from banks and was busted carrying over $12,400 in undocumented cash when the FBI caught up with her at Dulles International Airport in March.
But incredibly Awan — the wife of Imran Awan, the IT specialist and con man employed by Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was arrested last week for bank fraud — was never detained or forced to stay in the United States.
Addendum to original post:
Word has it that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is an absolute wreck since Imran Awan was arrested. Calls for her to testify to Congress are increasingly growing as well.
Wasserman Schultz knows she’s in hot water over this IT scandal. The Gateway Pundit previously reported the FBI seized smashed hard drives belonging to Imran Awan. Also reported that Debbie Wasserman Schultz, threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with ‘consequences’ for holding equipment that she says belonged to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani IT staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches.
Here Debbie threatens Capitol police Chief at hearing. Well, Debbie. Is it or is it Awan’s laptop? The relevant part starts at about 2:40.

Other than that all is swell in the swamp.
For the best in conservative news.
