For John, BLUF: I suspect the to many Democrats on Capital Hill computers and the internet are just magic and they need magicians to operate their systems. Anyone will do. Nothing to see here; just move along.

The original article was in The Daily Caller, by Reporter Luke Rosiak, 1 April 2018. Unfortunately, it wasn't an April Fools Day Joke.
Here are two key paragraphs:
Every one of the 44 House Democrats who hired Pakistan-born IT aides who later allegedly made “unauthorized access” to congressional data appears to have chosen to exempt them from background checks, according to congressional documents.And you wonder why they don't seem hot on illegal immigration? They don't care. It is all one great big party and since we are a land of immigration, what could possibly go wrong?
All of them appear to have waived background checks on Imran Awan and his family members, even though the family of server administrators could collectively read all the emails and files of 1 in 5 House Democrats, and despite background checks being recommended for such positions, according to an inspector general’s report. The House security policy requires offices to fill out a form attesting that they’ve initiated background checks, but it also includes a loophole allowing them to simply say that another member vouched for them.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
