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.

It's okay, I'll let it slide this time because there is a schedule to keep. Don't do it again if you really want your Pepperidge Farm sausage gift box this Christmas!

Haha. Nice to see some folks on here still retain a sense of humour. It seems to be sorely missing from the world in which we live.

Just get one thing into your head,

Nobody is going to Jail !!

Not now, Not Ever, they are all protected by the CIA.

The real problem is NOT these F'Wits in the DNC, it's the CIA.

And while everybody knows about the Illegal activites with the CIA, the people that are trying to bring them to Justice are trying to do it LEGALLY.

There will never ever be Justice in the USA as long as the CIA exists, period.

If you try to shut the CIA down, you will be made backrupt or whacked.

Get a grip, man. They're just bureaucrats collecting and analyzing information. Selective release of information is how all the high-level officials do their damage. The dishonest fairy tale assessment of Assad's "sarin" attack was pretty cheap.  Think the agency seventh floor helped with that.

The rest perform a useful function. 

JailBanksters's picture

The CIA is way beyond a spy agency, they can change governments in any country, they can lock anybody up without cause, they can whack any head of state in any country. They don't obey any US Laws or any International Laws, they are a Law onto themselves.

So far any way, it appears that the FBI is protecting DWS.  McCabe seems to be a pivotal player but he now has a very new boss.

We will find out over the next few years what happens when the governed are far more moral than than those that govern.

Hey Taggert,

You want to go there ... I hope you get lit up from an arkacide friend .

You want to be cucked by your bitch wife and be a fukkin faggot liberal, suffer the consequences bitch.

They will nail you to the wall queer.

runnymede's picture

Please--come off the ledge. Mr. Taggert has done a difficult thing. It may have taken longer than hoped, but his credentials as a marine will make this harder to ignore. The mere passage of time sorts things out.

Thank you Andre Taggart. I think you maybe the pivoted history

Not a chance Taggart. AG Sessions can't be woken up until Jan. 2021. (for the obvious reasons.) Debbie and her Awans - and several dozen congressional "book-cooking customers" of these Pakistani spies will walk. Not to mention thousands of swamp dwellers that are officially untouchable. Why did Trump hire and now refuses to fire Sleeping Sessions? Therein lies the truth of all that we now see.  Condolences. 

FoggyWorld's picture

This is too big to go away and people are filing civil suits.   Sessions is sleeping as he seems to always do when government corruption is involved.

At some point someone will wake him up.  What's holding that back is the MSM isn't reporting anything about the many strands in this story but now there are hundreds of civilians, some former government employees, doping out just what happened and I don't think after all of the effort put in that this will just fade away.

Whatever else Geo Webb may or may not be, he has done a great service by just exposing the highly organized crime that D.C. and the MIIC has become. Petraeus, the Clinton Foundation, the Awans, KK & R, DWS and the DNC. Literally selling out US tech and foreign policy, our security; congressional spying. We'll see if there's a shred of competency or integrity left in the Republic. This may be the biggest scandal in US history. The Awans are the tech that facilitated the opacity and coordinated it. Hence all the smashed equipment. 

We'll see

No, she is very, very criminal. Her behavior is that of a person trying to cover up a crime and avoid legal accountability for crimes she believes she has committed.

LA_Goldbug's picture

I agree. If she thinks she is fooling anyone then she is deluded. However I think she is trying to threaten the police official and that is the reason for the theatrics.

runnymede's picture

Bingo ^^^^

The fact that she has had to engage in the theatrics is of great value. There are many thinking people that see thru it. Every day there are more who do. Flushing the game out in the open. If nothing happens, a greater chunk of thinking people will see the diminishing morals and corruption of The Republic. Do not underestimate the power of shining light on the truth and the passage of time. 

PrivetHedge's picture

Her concern for other people's laptops is touching.

Her motive there has to be criminal to a reasonable level to make that much fuss about getting evidence removed by the backdoor.

A more innocent question would be 'what did you find?', not 'You need to give those laptops back to their owners ASAP'. How does she know the owners? How did they end up in Awan's garage? 

She stinks.

I too am confused. Are we talking about Wasserman the female or Schultz the man? Perhaps Wasserman-Schultz the it?

Smashed hard drives are not a sign of crime. ANY hard drive you discard should be physically destroyed, and make sure you destroy the disk inside. There are companies that specialize in restoring the data on smashed hard drives. For example, a laptop that got smashed in a car accident. If the disk inside is intact, the company finds another HDD same make and model and swps out the disks. 

A few years ago I had about six HDD's to get rid of. I had used them in all different computers over a few years, some with banking and credit card information. I decided to wipe them. It takes a LONG TIME to wipe six HDDS. I opted for the drill press. Multiple 1/4" holes throughout. Done.

A computer professional like Awan would certainly make sure that he made the HDD's unrecoverable, even if it is not involved in a crime. 

desertboy's picture

Yeah - lining a Pakistani's garage sounds totally like how government hard-drives would be normally decommissioned.

Antivenom's picture

However, in DC, the federal government has struck protocals on the legal destruction of computer assets.

They must be documented prior to wiping, and the whole process of destruction MUST BE BY SHREDDING, by one of the few FEDERAL GOVERNMENT APPROVED companies that provide paperwork and witnesses of shredding destruction.

Debbie's swinging dick lover boy Awan, wasn't authorized, or government approved for destroying computer assets...

In other words, he's fucked.

FoggyWorld's picture

You are right but what turned the Andre Taggert's head around was that every single piece - including the cabinets - had US Government property labels and numbers on them.   That concerned him - thank God.

navy62802's picture

Something is not right about "Andre Taggart." A random Marine officer who happens to be married to a Navy intelligence officer does not randomly decide to rent a property from Imran Awan and then discover his entire off-site, covert server before turning said materials over to NCIS and the FBI. Sorry, but that bullshit story doesn't pass the sniff test. It smells like pure bullshit. So who is Andre Taggart really? Who is his wife?

hooligan2009's picture

i agree. this looks like a double bluff false flag to me.. what are the odds on a marine married to a ranking naval officer getting an awan house with stolen/destroyed gear

FoggyWorld's picture

The odds in that area of a military family RENTING a home are very high.   Awan slipped up and not just there but in other ways as well.  The charges now against him do not include what the Taggerts found.

So far, he is only being charged for a fraud situation pertaining to one of his many outside businesses and it appears that a serious case has been purposely downgraded.  The Awans did have a Blackberry network that they set up for at least 20 and probably more Congress people.  Debbie Wassermen Schutz found the Awans when she took over from her predecessor and she seems to have selectively found 19 others to carry those blackberries that had been let's say modified.  

The Prosecutor running the case is in the Federal DC prosecutor's office and he just happens to be Debbie's brother.   He has not recused himself and he has not included the theft of government property because that would open up his sister to all sorts of discovery.  And the FBI seems to be asleep at the wheel.


FoggyWorld's picture

Think you ought to dig deeper.  Andre Tagget is a recently retired marine and his wife still serves in the USN.  

He did not find a server for starters.   He found in the house he rented as many military families do, cabinets in his garage that were marked as government property.   He opened them and found about 20 blackberry phones, 3 lap tops, a few iPads, a router and damaged hard drives.  He was concerned because all of that equipment had US government markings so he notified the Navy because of what he formerly and his wife currently do.

The Navy turned the information over to the FBI who swooped in and took the evidence.   It is a very typical way for a marine to live his life.

Andre Taggert did the right thing and maybe that's unusual in today's world but I would have done what he did only would have bypassed the Navy. The equipment had been damaged and he had no idea what it was all about but it concerned him that all of the items were US government property.

His wife had connections in the Navy, it's a no brainer that's who they would call.

It's the bottomless pit to uncover these suspicious deep ties because it's related to DNC and Clintons and they are the tip of the iceberg.

Follow the link and you will see how deep the rabbit hole goes, the deep state.

We all have a very good idea the level of crime committed by all the parties here, enough to put most of them in jail for many years.

And there would be many uncovered in the crimes and corrpution in the DNC and some Democrat Congressmen.

This thing is a small lid on a huge septic tank fo deep stinking trouble.

And this is why nothing will happen.

I suspect the evil and corruption is so immense, if it were revealed, the government would collapse.

If you want to know how deep this really is, check out George Webb on YouTube.   He has been digging away for well ove 300 days and putting up often several reports during the day.   He also takes you to the places involved so you get a better idea of what went on.
