US president Donald Trump asks Democrats to look into 'Pakistani fraudster', Hillary's deleted emails
The President's Pakistani fraudster is Imran Awan, who along with his brother Abid Awan, and five other family members, is at the heart of the brewing IT Scandal which has put government data at risk.
WASHINGTON: United States President Donald Trump on Sunday asked the "angry" Democrats to look into "the Pakistani fraudster" and former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's "illegally" deleted emails, among other things.
Trump also railed against special counsel Robert Mueller's probe to prove Russia's alleged role in 2016 presidential election and branded it "a Democrat con job."
"The Rigged Witch Hunt, originally headed by FBI lover boy Peter S (for one year) & now, 13 Angry Democrats, should look into the missing DNC Server, Crooked Hillary's illegally deleted Emails, the Pakistani Fraudster, Uranium One, Podesta & so much more. It's a Democrat Con Job!," Trump tweeted.
President Trump's Pakistani fraudster is Imran Awan, who along with his brother Abid Awan, and five other family members and associates, is at the heart of the brewing IT Scandal which has put Congressional data at risk.
Awan, a former IT aide to Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who investigators concluded, made "unauthorized access" to the House of Representative's servers.
They worked as shared IT employees for 44 House Democrats and had access to the House members' sensitive data, including emails, calendars, constituents' data, and personal files, despite having little to no IT experience, according to the local media reports.
Awan's father Haji Ashraf Awan was giving data to Pakistan, alleged the father's ex-business partner, adding that Imran bragged he had the power to "change the U.S. president," the New York-based Epoch Times reported.
Imran began working for the House of Representatives in 2004. A report in the Epoch Times states that most members of his immediate family are also working as IT aides to Democrats in the House of Representatives.
In his tweet, the US president also targeted FBI agent Peter Strzok who was removed from Mueller's probe last year after it was discovered that he had exchanged anti-Trump text messages with another FBI staffer, Lisa Page.
A slew of anti-Trump messages were found to be exchanged between the two via government devices. One of them was about Strzok vowing to 'stop' Trump from being elected just months before the presidential elections.
On August 8, 2016, Page had sent a message to Strzok asking "[Trump's] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!" and Strzok replied "No. No he won't. We'll stop it."
He is set to testify before the House Judiciary Committee next week.
On a related note, Trump has repeatedly taken an aim at Mueller's investigation, calling it a "witch hunt".
