Angry Marine Who Discovered Awan's "Smashed Hard Drives" Breaks Silence, Unloads On Wasserman Schultz

Tyler Durden's picture

Andre Taggart, the U.S. Marine who alerted the FBI when he moved into a house he rented from Imran Awan only to find a garage full of "smashed hard drives", has decided to reveal his identity in a stinging, at least for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, new interview with the Daily Caller.

Taggart, a black U.S. Marine who says he typically votes Democrat, is apparently fed up with Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Islamophobia smoke screen which he views as just a dishonest attempt to shield the Awans from their crimes.  In his epic rant to the Daily Caller, Taggart says the whole thing just "pisses me off" and that he's "absolutely disgusted with everything going on in the country right now."

“It pisses me off,” said Taggart, a black Marine who says he votes Democrat. He believes Wasserman Schultz is crying wolf and devaluing the meaning of genuine discrimination, while also exposing herself and the nation to risks.


“I just want to get these [guys] locked up and exposed and now,” Taggart told TheDCNF. “The people who facilitated them should also be locked up, as far as I’m concerned.”


Taggart said he made the decision to no longer be anonymous because he is concerned that his fellow Democrats are making a grave mistake by ignoring a scandal with serious criminal and national security implications.


“I’m absolutely disgusted with everything going on in the country right now, mostly because of right-wing conservatives, but with respect to this situation, political affiliation is irrelevant,” Taggart said.


“Him, his wife, his brother, all working down there — there’s no way they could do this without help. If we can drag Trump and his wingnuts through the mud for the Russia influence that they are having, then it’s only fair that we also expose this s–t,” Taggart said.



As we noted a few weeks ago, Taggart first discovered Awan's smashed hard drives after he rented a house in Lorton, Va. that belonged to them.  Upon moving in, the Marine found a trove of abandoned computer equipment in the garage, much of which had been destroyed, and called the FBI to take a look.

One of the new tenants — a Marine Corps veteran married to a female Navy Officer — said he found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner.”


The tenants called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and, not long after, FBI agents arrived together with the Capitol Police to interview them and confiscate the equipment. The Marine spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns for his wife’s naval career, saying she doesn’t want to be associated with a national security incident.


“It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.”

Of course, Wasserman Schultz has rejected concerns about Imran as “absurd” and “laughable,” even though he had access to all of her congressional emails and files, as well as her iPad password, is suspected by police of cybersecurity violations, and had long been accused of defrauding people for financial gain.  Meanwhile, she has maintained all along that Awan is being “persecuted” by the Capitol Police and FBI and even went so far as to threaten the Capital Police Chief earlier this summer.


As we noted earlier this week (see: Former U.S. Attorney On Awan Indictment: "There Is Something Very Strange Going On Here"), Imran Awan and his wife have indicted by a grand jury on 4 counts of fraud but speculation continues to swirl over whether additional charges are forthcoming.  In addition to allegations of blackmail and theft of taxpayer-funded IT equipment, the Daily Caller suggests the Awans may have been running a "ghost employee" scam.

Evidence suggests that the Awans were running a ghost employee scheme, collecting $6 million in salaries from taxpayers even though only a few of the six people on the House payroll actually performed IT work. Congressional offices signed off on those time-sheets for unknown reasons.


Imran Awan’s brother Abid operated a Virginia car dealership while being paid $160,000 annually working for multiple House Democrats. The dealership received $100,000 from an Iranian fugitive linked to Hezbollah, according to court records.


Amjad Khan, a former business partner, told the Daily Mail that “[Abid] would just go in [to the Hill] a couple times a week for a couple of hours, just to show his face. On paper, I think [Abid and Imran] were both working, but in reality only one was working, the other was running the [car] business.”


Khan added that “when he would go to D.C., [Abid] would spend $3,000 or $4,000 a night.”

But again, we're sure it's nothing...frankly, we're just excited that the Washington Post's investigation was able to figure out exactly where Stever Mnuchin viewed the solar eclipse...because that fact was just absolutely critical to maintain a properly functioning democracy.

What the hell is wrong with you people who denigrate someone for serving in the military?  Yea, this country has faults and the damn government is corrupt but that doesn't mean we don't need people willing to defend us.  The hate on this website is becoming a joke.  Do you also hate the idea of Russian or Chinese or Swedish or Egyptian or whatever citizens defending their countries?  Talk about a load of bull shit.  :/

Blaming younger, uneducated kids for wanting to enlist and serve is like blaming your Rottweiler for eating the raw steak you left on the coffee table while you went off to work.   For many, the services are the only viable career path (due to location, education, circumstances).   

Who is to blame are those politicians (and those electing them into power) who keep upping the incentives for joining.  Whether it be life-long free healthcare, $50k in education grants, free housing, retiring after 20 years of service, discounts everywhere for wearing a uniform, etc - THOSE are the people leaving the steak on the table for the dogs.

Sorry bro, you are talking a load of bull shit, the US military has little to do with PROTECTING our country. They are hired goons used to enforce the will of the elite, if the people benefit tangentially it's pure coincidence. Think TSA. Also, some would say they do more harm than good creating "blowback " through indiscriminate killing.

richsob's picture

HisBoyElroy says "Sorry bro, you are talking a load of bull shit, the US military has little to do with PROTECTING our country."  That has to be the stupidest comment I've ever read on this website.  Disband the U.S. military and we would be at the mercy of whoever decided to take whatever they wanted from us or whoever demanded we do anything they wanted to avoid being annhilated.  NO country would do that because it would always lead immediately to their destruction.  But you contend the U.S. military has little to do with protecting the little guy?  What a tool.  That is pathetic.

pods's picture

The majority of the military is in fact unconstitutional. Ironic they swear to protect the very document they are violating. 

And if we had no standing army there would be no invasion of the USA. That is what the militia is for. Standing Army= adventures around the world.  

To me it appears that the bankers have conquered this country and now use the military to protect their racket. So how is that protecting me?

Richsob needs to read Smedley Butler's "WAR IS A RACKET". This has been going on for a long, long time. If I had been awake at 18 I never would have enlisted. If I was compliant I could have done my 20 and out and been retired 20 years now. Needless to say, pods you are correct, that was part of what #2 is all about.

greenskeeper carl's picture

Im not for 'disbanding' it entirely, but I do think it needs to be downsized in a big way. As I've said on here many times, the budget on that should be no more than what it was when Bush II took office, about 300B. So, less than half what it is now. Even that would be too much, but its a start. If you can't keep AMERICA safe on 300B, fire the whole lot of them and find people who can.

Everyone who joins is a hero, right? Thank you for your service..... quit drinking the Kool-Aid bro. Most of these kids only join to get out of the shit hole they were born in, due to the fact that they have little to no prospects due to the fact the we spend 600 BILLION a year on defense (more than the next 10 countries combined) and little to nothing on our own infrastructure. Invest that money here and we live in a paradise, instead we go around the world poking hornets nests.

richsob's picture

Not everyone who joins is a hero, I can agree with you on that.  And I do appreciate the thank you.  I also agree we need to spend less IF we can ever change the system that is in place now.  It is ridiculous to see money wasted by the government on stupid expenditures and I also include welfare fraud, corporate fraud, etc. in addition to ill advised military spending.  I am all in favor of a line item veto.  That would be a start and a Prez with some balls could begin the process of cutting spending.  We can only hope it will happen some day soon before it's too late and this whole thing goes down the dumper.

OMG..... I was being sarcastic. An ability to interpret sarcasm requires higher level thinking.... something you clearly lack. By the way, that makes you a perfect military man.

There is plenty enough force in these here hills of America to defend our country without the need of a mercenary military. And if there was no millitary ain't no mother fucker gonna mount an attack on America that wouldn't be met with force and unity. This country is easily defensible without needing a standing army.

Here's a thought, RichSOB, how about you sell all your earthly possessions and join the fuck all brigade. I hear they're hiring.

Rich SOB, the military is indeed in the business of doing the bidding of the elite. There's another stupid comment on ZH for ya. It's been said the U.S. is an oil company with an army, and you'll probably find more than a few here agreeing with that.
