Members of the House of Representatives IT-tech team are bringing some major security concerns into the spotlight.

Specific members of the team have found suspicious documents and concerning behaviors from certain government officials, leading them to believe blackmailing tactics may be at work against Congress members.

Now the team is working to bring this information to the public-eye, and is mounting a case to prove there may be something treacherous afoot in Congress.

Allegations against some former IT-tech workers may prove to be the spark in a big blackmail scandal at Capitol Hill.

The new IT-tech team is working to prove that the four former employees may have data-mined information from House Reps and using it to blackmail political leaders.

The Daily Caller reported:

Congressional technology aides are baffled that data-theft allegations against four former House IT workers — who were banned from the congressional network — have largely been ignored, and they fear the integrity of sensitive high-level information.

Imran Awan and three relatives were colleagues until police banned them from computer networks at the House of Representatives after suspicion the brothers accessed congressional computers without permission.

Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them. The baffled aides wonder if the suspects are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access.

“I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point” with no arrests, said Pat Sowers, who has managed IT for several House offices for 12 years. “Something is rotten in Denmark.”

The Awans, while being accused of felony-level charges, are doing surprisingly well considering the situation put them out of work.

And interestingly enough, many of the congressional offices still hold the Awan crew in high regards – begging the question, “What do they have on them?”

The Daily Caller reported:

“There’s no question about it: If I was accused of a tenth of what these guys are accused of, they’d take me out in handcuffs that same day, and I’d never work again,” he said.

The Awans’ ban sent 20 members searching for new IT workers, but another contractor claims he’s had difficulty convincing offices to let him fill the void, even when he seemed like a shoo-in. He says he has the sense some members wrongly believed that he blew the whistle on the Awans’ theft and they were angry at him for it.

Politico reported the Awan crew is “accused of stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network.”

So, what does it all mean?

Are the Awan family members simply elitist members of society that can get away with data-mining members of Congress?

Or are they blackmailing the Congressional leaders to maintain their lifestyle amidst getting caught?
