Daily Caller News Foundation reporter Luke Rosiak said Democrats exhibited terrible judgement in the wake of the House IT scandal Monday on Fox Business and questioned why they still haven’t taken action.
The Awan brothers — who worked as IT aides for many Democratic members of Congress, including Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz — have been the focus of an investigation into security practices on Capitol Hill.
The brothers were not given background checks before being given access to highly sensitive government information and no explanations have been given as to why.
“The House policy actually says that background checks are required, but if you delve into the fine print there’s technically a loophole that these members may have been able to invoke that essentially allowed another member just to vouch for them,” Rosiak said on “Mornings With Maria.”
“Before you turn over the passwords that give the guys access to all of the emails of the members of Congress and every file on their hard drives and all the staffers’ hard drives — they just kind of ask casually ask a friend, ask a fellow member of Congress and fill out this form — and turns out that all 44 members who employed Imran Awan, they never ran a background check,” he said.
