    "Whatever Is On Imran Awan’s Smashed Hard Drives Likely Can Be Recovered"

    "Somebody must have thought they were hiding something by smashing those computer hard-drives the FBI recovered from the home of Imran Awan, Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s former information technology (IT) aide.

    But odds are excellent they were wrong. Federal law enforcement authorities may have already recovered and read whatever was on those hard drives.

    “It depends on what happens, but even if it is hit with a hammer, it probably doesn’t damage the platters that actually hold the data, which remains recoverable,” said Tom Hakim, engineering supervisor for
    werecoverdata.com, a New York-based lab that specializes in difficult digital retrieval.

    “In most cases, it’s very likely” the information on a smashed hard drive can be recovered “in two or three days, maybe a week,” Hakim said."

    "That may be very bad news for Pakistani-born Imran. He and his younger brothers Abid and Jamal, his wife Hina Alvi and his best friend Rao Abbas are criminal suspects in a federal investigation first made public in February into abuse of the congressional IT servers, including the possible transfer of data, emails and files from the offices of dozens of House Democrats.

    Imran had worked for Wasserman Schultz — who resigned in July 2016 as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee after its IT system was hacked..."

    “There is something quite amiss as to why Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz continued to use taxpayer funds to employ former technology staff member, Imran Awan, even months after he was barred from accessing the House’s computer systems and a number of her colleagues severed ties with Awan,” said Matthew Whitaker, FACT’s executive director.

    “Since Awan’s arrest last week, Wasserman Schultz has been evasive and unable to answer even basic questions about the nature of Awan’s employment with her office. This only further confirms the urgency of an investigation into her unethical and illegal actions,” Whitaker said in a statement released by the non-profit government ethics watchdog."

    What is her job these days? I know Hillary put her on her campaign after she left the DNC, but the election is over. So where does DWS work now?

    It's getting tougher and tougher to keep up with all the scandals, conspiracies, accusations and investigations.

    Lots of partisan noise.

    There is something very fishy--or very stupid--about the whole situation.

    According to the media, duck the press and attempt to prevent the Keystone Capitol cops from looking at her laptop they have in their possession. :p
