DOJ swings and misses on Imran Awan prosecution

July 03, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement questioning the decision by the Department of Justice not to charge Imran Awan with theft:

“The decision to give the Pakistani who is the heart of the Congressional IT scandal, where hundreds of thousands of dollars, where taxpayer’s computer equipment went missing and the security of the entire Congressional email system was compromised, a slap on the wrist is a punch in the gut to the rule of law.

“It is unconscionable that the Department of Justice has dropped the ball so thoroughly on this case.”
