The ongoing investigation into the now-jailed former Pakistani IT staffer for then-DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Imran Awan, has taken an interesting turn. According to a recent police report, there is
According to a recent police report, there is reason to believe that the laptop which sparked the investigation into a cyber-intelligence breach may have been planted by Awan.
Capitol Police found it in an obscure room near midnight in one of the congressional office buildings that Awan had no reason to be in.
And this was after he had been banned from the congressional network for being named in the investigation, despite that the DNC continued to employ him as a consultant.
So, if Awan did indeed plant the laptop, what did he want police to find and whom does it implicate?
We’ll give you one guess.

A laptop computer that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., fought to keep prosecutors from examining may have been planted for police to find by her since-indicted information technology staffer, Imran Awan, a police report indicates.
U.S. Capitol Police found the computer after midnight April 6 in a tiny room in a House office building that formerly served as a phone booth, according to a Capitol Police report reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
Alongside the laptop were a Pakistani identification card, copies of Awan’s driver’s license and congressional ID badge, and letters addressed to acting U.S. Attorney Channing D. Phillips, a Democrat who is the top federal prosecutor for the District of Columbia.
Police also found notes in a composition notebook marked “attorney-client privilege.”
The laptop had the username “RepDWS,” even though the Florida Democrat and former Democratic National Committee chairman previously said it was Awan’s computer and that she had never seen it.
Awan was banned Feb. 2 from the congressional computer network because he is a suspect in a cybersecurity investigation, but he still had access to House facilities because Wasserman Schultz continued to employ him.
The laptop computer was found on the second floor of the the Rayburn House Office Building—a place Awan would have had no reason to go because Wasserman Schultz’s office is in the Longworth House Office Building, and other House members who employed Awan had fired him.
