National Spoliation Notice to Congress by George Webb

This petition had 404 supporters

Dear Member of Congress:

It has come to my attention, through an investigative reporter named George Webb, that a spy ring may have operated in Congress since January of 2000. I am deeply troubled by this news. I have read articles in the Daily Caller publication by reporter Luke Rosiak and reporter Heather Cagill of the publication Politico that state: (1) there have been twenty Congressional burglaries, (2) and key information technology equipment (like hard drives and laptops) may have been stolen.

Further, reporter Sean Boburg of the Washington Post publication also writes that the House Inspector General issued a report outlining 5,100 unauthorized logins (authentication events) over a period of seven months from March 2016 to October 2016 to a House Caucus network computer server. This is especially troubling to me since this was during the period of a key campaign between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

When these revelations are viewed in the shadow of the infamous Democratic National Committee (DNC) and John Podesta Wikileaks scandals, it paints a troubling picture, considering that the alleged ringleader of this spy ring, I.T. consultant Imran Awan, worked directly for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former head of the DNC.

I also understand a physical confiscation of hard drives and a laptop were made on April 6th, 2017 at the Rayburn Office Building (next to the Capitol Building) from the person of Imran Awan (this event occurred after he was banned from access to the Congressional network on February 2nd, 2017).

I understand there is a chance my private conversations and concerns that I have shared in confidence with Congressional staff are contained in a I.T. system known as "iConstituent", and that system may have been breached by alleged hacker activity.

In view of the foregoing, this is your notice, under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, to safely protect and archive all electronic messages, text messages, electronic files, and other evidence that has been transmitted, stored or processed by any information technology (I.T.) system in your possession. This would include all such I.T. systems, no matter in your personal use, Capitol office or district offices. As you know, this includes all media such as USB sticks, DVD/CD media, hard drives, etc. Any destruction of evidence will be viewed by the federal courts as an abuse of this notice and can be construed as a criminal act or be liable for criminal sanctions. You now have a duty to safely archive, store and protect all such evidence between 2000 to 2017. Your office and staff should seek legal counsel to implement this litigation hold demand (spoliation notice).

This notice should be forwarded to your custodian of records, Philip G. Kiko.

Thank you,

Your Constituent,
