More information on the House IT Awan investigation

Daily CallerA top aide to Democrat Rep. Yvette Clarke told Capitol Hill investigators she believed the New York congresswoman’s chief of staff, Shelley Davis, was working with IT aide Abid Awan to steal equipment from the congressional office.
Clarke “wrote off” one-tenth of her annual budget after $120,000 in equipment could not be located.
She did not mention it publicly and waited to fire Abid until House officials approached her about it months later. Davis no longer works there, but has not been arrested.

It sounds like there was a lot of theft involved in this ring, along with likely exfiltration of data for espionage purposes, and possibly blackmail to keep it quiet judging by how desperately certain House members are trying to cover it up. Why this hasn't gotten more attention I have no idea.
