Cybersecurity and The Awan Brothers
Note: Since this report first aired on Full Measure, the Justice Department allowed Imran Awan to avoid jail time by entering a guilty plea to making a false statement on a loan application. The agency did not pursue charges related to the Inspector General’s findings or the original FBI indictment including improper or unauthorized access to the official computer accounts of multiple members of Congress and providing false information on tax returns.
When it comes cybersecurity scandals, as tough as Congress is on private companies like Equifax and Facebook, you might be surprised to learn that they’ve been quietly dealing with a scandal of their own. Some claim it’s the most important investigation you’ve never heard of in Washington D.C. It involves the FBI, an Inspector General, 42 members of Congress, and five Pakistani American IT workers.
