This report says that these guys have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and are being investigated for espionage, including the previously mentioned crimes?


Yes, Maria's guest says he has talked to Congressional members who
said that espionage is where this investigation is going. Its not hard to believe,
but here we are with the "news" gatekeepers that have a
choke hold on some peoples minds.



How did these guys get clearance to work in IT for Congress personnel?


Good question! I'd look back to the previous administration
with a review, hope someone does!

I saw this, but I don't know if the source is good.
It's worth looking into further:


Navy SEAL William Ryan Owen was killed in an al Qaeda ambush in Yemen, leading to speculation that they leaked sensitive intel that led to Owen’s death. If so, this is a Muslim terrorist spy ring and they should all be in custody. The terrorists knew Americans were coming it would seem. It will be interesting to see if this accusation plays out and sticks.

Computers and Servers huh, that could definitely do it, thanks for that clarification.

Everybody knows that no good "hacker" uses anything in the "cloud" to store data, sheesh. I would have covered my @ss a little better than that. The next step would be to find where this data is going(or went).

Some of the 40+ Democrats for whom these guys worked:

Three members of the intelligence panel
five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Rep. Joaquin Castro - Texas Democrat - serves on both the intelligence and foreign affairs panels
Rep. Cedric Richmond - Louisiana Democrat - Committee on Homeland Security
Rep. Andre Carson - Indiana Democrat - member of the intelligence committee
Rep. Jackie Speier - California Democrat - member of the intelligence committee
Rep. Tammy Duckworth - Illinois Democrat - member of House committees dealing with the armed services, oversight, and Benghazi
Rep. Lois Frankel - Florida Democrat - member of the foreign affairs committee
Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.)
former Rep. Robert Wexler
previous House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra, currently the California attorney general

This is serious. Very serious.

I think this might be why Cory Louie, chief information security officer for the White House’s Executive Office, was fired.
This was happening right under his nose.

Connecting the dates for a timeline:

Thursday February 2nd it was announced that evening to
the affected members their staff had been blocked from
the networks and were under investigation.

According to ZDNet, that same evening White House
Cyber Security Chief was also fired, and walked out.
ETA: to clarify, he was escorted from the building
by security, or police or both.

This all happened at the same time, Thursday Feb2 evening.

It must be connected. If it is as serious as Espionage, or
Treason ( that is if they are U.S. Citizens) would think
there will be another agency involved soon.

What would be the point of giving it to Wikileaks though, spread discord? If they as some have suggested belonged to the muslim brotherhood why not just put the info on an sd card ship it back to the dessert and blackmail them... If they're smart enough to hack into it (which I doubt they were probably just in a position of trust) they should be able to maneuver that intel somewhere more useful than the Wikileak dump which claims to be in the best interest of the free world.


Maybe somebody hacked into the collected information.

Somebody that knew what was going on and saw a different opportunity.

But remember the DNC and Podesta were on different systems.

Yeah I'm leaning towards that more than the whole "Democratic committee hired 4 middle eastern folk in the spirit of America and they were betrayed" aspect. Don't get me wrong im more xenophobic than a warhammer 40k player larping as the god emperor... it would be devastating if these 5 that do appear to be middle eastern abused their position as IT personnel to spread discord, but attributing the CISO (chief information security officer) dismissal (also on thursday) to this could either be because he didn't know about it happening or worse he did know it was happening and Trump didn't like that one bit.
Check out Abid's failed facebook page for his "car's international" Some guy gave it a one star yesterday meaning he was either looking into this before ATS or the shop is still open and he got terrible service.

Interesting....
There are questions about that raid yet unanswered.

Trump followed his Sec of Defense and Joint Chiefs in that,
that in turn would have Spec Ops and Regional would have
been in accord. The media has demonized Trump, and wrongly
so. McCain, cant say anything good about him before this,
let alone his recent actions.

Time will tell.
ETA: if that mission was compromised, heads will roll.

Hope no stone is left unturned.

I wonder if that failed mission was what prompted this investigation.
They already knew there were leaks in the White House and were looking into it - Trump mentioned it was a priority.

Maybe if there was a leak that resulted in someone tipped off about that mission, it gave them a direction to look.
That would include looking into everyone who knew about the mission, including members of certain committees in Congress.
This could be why they started looking at who had access to their computers, and found this stuff going on.

A sign this is HUGE...
Most of MSM is ignoring it.
There is a reason for that.

It might be because it is an embarrassment to the Democrats - that they were an indirect source of leaks for years.
Or it might be because the Russians were not responsible, and they don't want to admit that.

Did you know that one Democratic representative Tammy Duckworth you posted about earlier was the first female double amputee of the Iraq war in 2004? They all sound like the crux of the american dream but that woman tops it.

I think you hit the nail on the head MSM has been reporting on trumps administration's being "dismayed" by how quickly information on white house (triggered); info was leaking out so what better way then to go ahead with a previous administrations planned and approved plan of action. Could it be that other moves this administration has made has been to smoke the rabbit from its hole? I wonder how many more "counter terrorism" plans have also remained on the table?

Either way this thread is intriguing We're left with the possibility's of a conformist or inept CISO, muslim brotherhood in the DNC (which blamed it on Russia who we destroyed vie economic warfare), or my personal favorite a shadow government only disclosed to top elite representatives of each party meaning either Trump is in on it or isn't...

Very well could be, I'll check the timelines!

Am fairly certain that raid was already a go
under the Obama administration.

If anyone turns up anything, would appreciate
the links. Thanks!

Another curious thing is this photo of Bill Clinton with Imran Awan, one of the IT contractors under investigation.

Going back and looking at some early reports of the leaks
that first came on Trump Administration.




President-elect Donald Trump has announced plans to investigate an alleged intelligence leak to NBC, after he claimed the American broadcaster was able to access “top secret” information before him.

“I am asking the chairs of the House and Senate committees to investigate top-secret intelligence shared with NBC prior to me seeing it,” he wrote on Twitter.

Independent UK



Top Secret info leaked; what committee did that come from?

You must live in England or something because all of your domains are inaccessible!
www.cnn.com...
US investigators corroborate some aspects of the Russia dossier;
"None of the newly learned information relates to the salacious allegations in the dossier. Rather it relates to conversations between foreign nationals. The dossier details about a dozen conversations between senior Russian officials and other Russian individuals. Sources would not confirm which specific conversations were intercepted or the content of those discussions due to the classified nature of US intelligence collection programs."
