Daily Caller News Foundation investigative reporter Luke Rosiak said Congress was hacked during the Imran Awan IT scandal and thinks Democrats are responsible, Tuesday on “The Ingraham Angle.”
“The House policy says if you’re going to give someone super user permissions on the House network, meaning they can read all of the members emails, you’ve got to do a background check,” Rosiak said. “But they hired this guy Imran Awan and his brother, and soon they brought other relatives, too. And these guys had criminal records, they had a dozen lawsuits, they had ties to foreign officials, and they never even checked their backgrounds.”
“In other words, Congress was hacked,” Rosiak continued. “You never heard about this. This is a shocking revelation.”
“These are the Democrats that are constantly lecturing us about cyber security,” he added. “They basically brought the fox into the hen house and the worst happened. Congress was hacked.”
Rosiak accused Democrats of trying to sweep the story under the rug and claimed they knowingly withheld information from the public.
“This is something that the Democrats basically covered up,” Rosiak said. “They actually let them stay on the network for four months after the inspector general informed them of unauthorized access being made. So you have to think that it comes back to the narrative for Democrats. They don’t actually care about hacking. They have this Russia thing. They want it to keep going.”
“It was an inconvenient truth that Congress was hacked by Pakistanis at the same time. And so they withheld it from the public and there was a lot of cover-ups in the 2016 election, but this is the most successful one.”
