The Daily Mail also reported that one of Imran Awan’s relatives threw the Awan brothers under the bus and exposed them for their criminal behavior.
Now they are at the center of a probe into what happened to the data they had access to – and one of their relatives told DailyMail.com: ‘For the sake of money they would have done anything.
‘There are possibilities that [Imran] or them might have been selling this information to anybody who is not authorized to have them.’
‘They are not being picked up because they are Muslims. They are being picked up because they did something wrong,’ said Syed Ahmed, who is related to them through their stepmother.
She accused her stepsons of domestic abuse earlier this year.
‘There are possibilities that [Imran] or them might have been selling this information to anybody who is not authorized to have them. For the sake of money they would have done anything,’ he added.
‘They were not living an honest life. They were living like they were gangsters.’
Paul Sperry of the New York Post previously reported that Awan may have sold sensitive information to hostile governments such as Pakistan or Russia:
Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say.
What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects.
Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.
“This is a massive, massive scandal,” a senior US official familiar with the widening probe told The Post.
