…Mohammad Weiss Rassool, whom the FBI busted last decade for tipping off an al-Qaida terrorist suspect, reportedly now works for the deputy IRS chief financial officer as a financial management analyst, drawing a lucrative salary at taxpayer expense.
According to investigative reporter Patrick Poole, who broke the explosive story in PJ Media, the Obama administration has let a Muslim man convicted of abusing sensitive government data have access to the sensitive financial data of millions of Americans at an agency known for abusing such information.
Astonishingly, the dangerous felon is still at the IRS, where he goes by the name ‘Weiss Russell….’
Rasool who immigrated into the US from Afghanistan worked for the Sherriff’s Department in Virginia and was not Rasool soon worked his way up that the Fairfax County Police realized that they had an Al Qaeda spy in their ranks.
A complaint was filed in 2008 by DOJ. According to the complaint, Rasool accessed a “national criminal database containing names of terrorist suspects and confirmed that FBI agents were tailing a Muslim pal from his mosque.”
…In 2008, Russell/Rasool was prosecuted for his role in tipping off Abdullah Alnoshan, a close associate of al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and a friend of Russell’s from their mosque. According to the Justice Department’s Statement of Facts filed at the time of Russell’s indictment, Alnoshan provided license plate numbers to Russell for cars he believed were conducting surveillance on him. Russell then checked those plate numbers in the FBI’s NCIC database, which came back to a leasing company which federal prosecutors claimed would have tipped off Russell to the bureau’s surveillance.
He left a phone message for Alnoshan that the FBI intercepted….
It was not until agents arrived to arrest Rasool who along with his family were destroying records after having breached the database of the NCIC system on at least 15 occasions that law enforcement realized the extent of the breach.
Moreover, how is it that Rasool changed his name to Weiss Russell and the connection was never made? Well the answer may be not what you know but you and Rasool’s case, a member of CAIR.
That individual in CAIR lobbied on behalf of this spy. The CAIR official liasaioned between Rasool and the Sherriff’s Department and now that same individual has connections inside the White House.
Translation: The devil has his foot in the door everywhere in Washington, D.C. and Rasool, the Internal Revenue Service.
