Capitol Police Accidentally Gave Evidence To House Hacking Suspect’s Defense Attorney

The Capitol Police turned over a trove of evidence in the alleged Imran Awan House cyberbreach and theft case to the defense attorneys when they were supposed to deliver it to prosecutors instead, according to court documents and a source.

And hours after The Daily Caller News Foundation asked prosecutors about the disclosure, Awan’s lawyer said he had learned of the forthcoming story from a source on Capitol Hill. TheDCNF had not told anyone other than prosecutors about it.

“The cop came to [Awan’s defense attorney] Chris Gowen’s office with a stack of papers … Then he came back and said, ‘I thought you guys were the other party.’ He was very, very angry. But Gowen made copies,” the source, who’s familiar with The Awans, told TheDCNF.

Here's an example of a major civil service screw up, but will anybody take responsibility? Only if they can be guaranteed that it won't affect their job status. That's the way the civil service unions work.

This cop is a traitor and should be fired for his ignorance. No one is that stupid and if he "accidentally" did this then it shows how poor the vetting for quality officers for the Capital Police is.
