Capital Police investigating IT contractors
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/02/...ccess.html

To summarize the article, Capital Police are investigating congressional IT contractors for a security breach (hacking), improper handling of sensitive material, theft, etc.

Five specific individuals are involved. These persons provide IT services and are shared by 40 Democrat congressmen.

They made "unauthorized access" to the House computer system which puts sensitive info at risk. They placed House info on an external cloud server in direct violation of House rules.

Quote:Fox News is told the contract employees, shared by about 40 House Democratic members, removed hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment from offices, including computers and servers. There also were bookkeeping and inventory irregularities where the employees would purchase equipment at one price, bill the congressional office for another and potentially pocket the difference.

I've been searching for more recent info as I just heard about this about an hour ago on Fox News Channel. It seems that few are talking about it.

In the story I heard earlier today, it seemed the investigation had narrowed to three employees. All brothers, all had middle eastern names. This alone isn't the issue.

The three brothers are 20, 21, and 22 years of age. They're all making $165K/year. Needless to say, most of the IT guys I know in this area are like "WTF?"

If someone works the system and profits, I can't hold it against them. But I have to wonder who is asleep at the switch? Who was the genius who gave these kids this much access and money? Somehow I doubt it had much to do with their skills and experience, and more to do with Democrat virtue signalling. I hope at least one of the media outlets runs with this story.

Of course they are. Politicians don't know what the fuck they are doing IT wise. Hillary and Platt River and the DNC leaks were an inside job. Can't blame Russia for everything.

RE: Capital Police investigating IT contractors
Tip of the iceberg, I'm guessing. The whole administration is faced with a government that has been staffed by globalists for 30 years. The level of treachery will be monumental unless there is very significant turnover. There are lots of IT people in the country, outside of DC, who are unemployed or underemployed due to guest worker and offshoring practices ... give some of them jobs.

You can when you are out of options.

Latinopan found a youtube video about the story. In it they mention the suspect's names. They also raise the question of is this where Debbie Wasserman Shultz got hacked?





One of these guys apparently had a prior criminal record as well.

Apparently these brothers leaked info to some camel humpers in Yemen which cost the life of one of our special forces guys.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-02-11...aned-house

Quote:“Initial reports are always wrong, but it doesn’t appear to be a failure of planning or intelligence,” said the former special forces officer.

Almost immediately, the raiding force on the ground took intense fire, according to the briefing paper and a senior military official. Occupants of the targeted house and its compound, along with their guard force, moved to a separate cluster of houses nearby where families, including women and children, were staying. Armed women fired on the U.S. and Emirati forces.

“There were a lot of female combatants who were part of this,” said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, the Pentagon’s chief spokesman, on Monday. “We saw during this operation, as it was taking place, that female fighters ran to pre-established positions — as though they had trained to be ready, and trained to be combatants — and engaged with us.”

They sound like the nice immigrants I hear all the time why the I.T. Industry needs more visas for. Not.

One of our boys is dead. Give them the death penalty. I hope Trump and Sessions goes law and order on all these traitorous assholes. Bring back firing squads.

Update:
http://dailycaller.com/2017/02/20/exclus...aqi-money/

This story gets even more complex. Read the article in the link.

Three brothers from Pakistan granted full access and providing IT services to several high profile Democrats in Congress (including one Debbie Wasserman Schultz.) Their wives go on the congressional payroll as well.

It's no wonder the MSM is trying to ignore this story and still insisting that Russia and wikileaks are responsible for the DNC hacks. I'd like to think there's a lot of career ending incompetence that took place.

Here's another article on the story:
http://dailycaller.com/2017/02/21/congre...-fugitive/

One of the brothers in question filed for bankruptcy in 2012 and listed $1 million in liabilities. Bankruptcies are serious issues for employees in positions requiring a security clearance.

RE: Capital Police investigating IT contractors
This is actually the nature of the IT business. It doesn't matter how smart you are or how hard you work. If you are properly connected, however, you can easily score a job with a six-figure salary.

It's a lot being an actor. It's a lottery to make the "big bucks." But it is a career where you can make a living, while most actors don't make one.

Needless to say, this is why most people leave it in disgust.

RE: Capital Police investigating IT contractors
It's not really business as usual when you've got a 20 year old who is at best qualified to do help desk, pulling in $160K/year. It's not business as usual to get to put your wife on the payroll for $160K/year when she doesn't work at all. But the outlandish salaries are the tip of the iceberg.

They were stealing equipment. They were grossly overcharging for hardware. They were moving sensitive material to off site servers when such actions are prohibited.

They're engaged in some rather shady and unstable business practices outside of congress. Bankruptcies, DUIs, and other nefarious shenanigans. A lot of things that would disqualify most people from obtaining and retaining a security clearance.

Were they all hired as some hardcore show of Democrat virtue signalling? Or were they hired for "other" reasons?
