Let's look into Awan

I am late to the Awan party, as I usually am when it comes to politics. Last I looked, the Awan family was in the employ of the Democratic Party, in which capacity the family had access to a lot of DNC research - and, the boundaries between the Democrats and the administrative state being as porous as they are, confidential US research.

Mrs Awan fled to Pakistan. Later, Mr Awan followed her shipped money thataway and tried to follow her, but got nabbed. The head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, kept sending cash and - in the latest news - wanted to send more, before being reined in.

The story hasn't entered the news much, but Right blogs are looking into it, and Asking Questions. Such as - what was Awan providing for all that extra(?) money DWS sent him? I can sort-of see why the rest of the country doesn't care much since, on the face of it, it looks like a political party got bilked and/or blackmailed, but left the rest unscathed.

Except for the bit about the party in question being the effective party of the whole Acela Corridor and the wannabe rulers of the whole planet. Except for the party (like the Republicans) owning an extensive database of volunteers and of "potential Democratic voters", which means every voter in range of a booth last year. Hell, since I didn't vote in 2012, I was probably on it for 2016. This leaves aside the Clinton penchant for misusing Federal property.

It is time the rest of the country did care. If we had a useful media, it could think of some questions to ask. Such as, on how much of this data has ended up in a nuclear Islamic republic.

HOLY CRAP 15:40 MST: McCarthy at NRO

Awan and his family cabal of fraudsters had access for years to the e-mails and other electronic files of members of the House’s Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees. It turns out they were accessing members’ computers without their knowledge, transferring files to remote servers, and stealing computer equipment — including hard drives that Awan & Co. smashed to bits of bytes before making tracks.
