] Federal Court Orders Snap Hearing on Awan Brothers Democrat IT Scandal: Judicial Watch
Cristina Laila by Cristina Laila January 14, 2020
A federal court this week ordered a snap hearing on the Congressional IT scandal involving the Awan brothers and their Pakistani spy ring.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch filed multiple FOIA lawsuits seeking documents related to the Imran Awan Democrat IT scandal and just last month the DOJ responded by saying they couldn’t produce any documents related to Awan due to “technical difficulties.”
A hearing was ordered following the Court’s demand to know why no records were produced in the Awan case after the DOJ filed documents under seal.
The hearing is scheduled for (tomorrow) January 15 at 10 AM ET.

JUDICIAL WATCHJudicial Watch: Federal Court Orders Snap Hearing on Awan Brothers, Congressional Democrat IT Scandal After DOJ Files Document Under Seal
In a hearing last month, U.S. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta expressed frustration and ordered the Justice Department to explain its failure to produce records by January 10 and to provide Judicial Watch some details about the delay. Instead, the Justice Department made its filing under seal and has yet to provide Judicial Watch with any details about its failure to produce records as promised to the court.
“The cover-up of the Awan Brothers Democratic IT scandal shows the FBI and DOJ’s penchant for dishonesty isn’t just limited to FISA abuse,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The DOJ’s handling of the Awan Brothers case has long been an issue of concern and now we are expected believe some secret investigation prevents the public from knowing the full truth about this scandal. We are skeptical.”
