Just a day after reports emerged that the FBI had seized a number of “smashed hard drives” and other computer equipment from the residence Imran Awan, the IT aide of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, we find out that Imran Awan has been arrested by U.S. Capitol Police, FBI agents and Customs and Border Protection officers at Dulles International Airport while he was attempting to flee the country. Oops.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DNC must be sweating bullets right about now. I’d say the shit’s about to hit the fan. According to Fox News, Awan has been charged with bank fraud.
There is no doubt, Imran Awan is a hired schmuck hired by the DNC and Debbie ‘Blabbermouth’ to do the dirty work for Hillary Clinton. You can bet the DNC is nervous about this guy being arrested. Now, let’s hope there’s a dominoe effect from this arrest.
H/T Zero Hedge:
Inexplicably, or perhaps not, Awan has been kept on the payroll of former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz despite a rapidly escalating scandal that potentially involves multiple federal crimes.
For those who have managed to avoid this story, which wouldn’t be difficult given that the mainstream media has made every attempt to ignore it, the Pakistani-born brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan are at the center of a criminal investigation by U.S. Capital Hill Police and the FBI. Up until now, allegations of wrong doing have varied from simply overcharging taxpayers for congressional IT equipment to blackmailing members of Congress with secrets captured from the emails of their Democrat employers.
The Awan brothers worked for more than 30 house and senate democrats, as well as Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. The substantial scandal has raised questions about who may have been passed data which the Awans had access to, given Pakistan’s history of collaborating with a number of foreign countries who have demonstrated past willingness to influence U.S. politics.
Just yesterday we learned that FBI agents reportedly seized a number of “smashed hard drives” and other computer equipment from the Awan’s former residence in Virginia.
As background, Imran was first employed in 2004 by former Democrat Rep. Robert Wexler (FL) as an “information technology director”, before he began working in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office in 2005.
The family was paid extremely well, with Imran Awan being paid nearly $2 million working as an IT support staffer for House Democrats since 2004. Abid Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were each paid more than $1 million working for House Democrats. In total, since 2003, the family has collected nearly $5 million.
The staffer’s services were so important to congressional members, that on March 22, 2016, eight democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence issued a letter, requesting that their staffers be granted access to Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI). Of those that signed the letter were representatives Jackie Speier (CA) and Andre Carson (IN), the second Muslim in Congress, both of whom employed the Awan brothers.
The brothers were also employed by members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, such as: Jackie Speier (D-CA), Andre Carson (D-IN), Joaquín Castro (D-TX), Lois Frankel (D-FL), Robin Kelly (D-IL), and Ted Lieu (D-CA). Lieu has since openly called for leaks by members of President Trump’s administration despite the fact that he may until recently have been under surveillance by a foreign entity.
One bombshell that has been all but ignored by the main stream media is that Imran Awan had access to Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s iPad password, meaning that the brothers also had direct access to the notorious DNC emails.
The brothers are accused of removing hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment from congressional offices, including computers and servers, while also running a procurement scheme in which they bought equipment, then overcharged the House administrative office that assigns such contractors to members.
But even when other staffers let him go and he was blocked from having access to the House servers, Wasserman Schultz kept him on the payroll. Back in March, Hina Alvi — Awan’s wife — was let go as IT support staff for Rep. Gregory Meeks, Politico reported. Awan had been working for Rep. Marcia Fudge, and he was let go from that position too. Meanwhile, Wasserman-Shultz kept him on as a technology adviser, even though he had been blocked from accessing the House computer system since February.
Awan earned nearly $2 million since 2004 as an IT support staffer for House Democrats. But according to Fox News report today, Debbie ‘Blabbermouth’ Schultz claimed Awan was just a “part-time employee”. Seriously!?
Wasserman Schultz has now fired Awan. Spokesman David Damron said Tuesday in a statement:
“Mr. Awan previously served as a part-time employee but his services have been terminated. No charges, evidence or findings from the investigation have been formally shared with our office, so we cannot comment on them.”
WOW! Who makes THAT kind of money in part-time job?
Despite a six figure salary, one member of Awan’s family and a staffer declared bankruptcy in 2012 with more than $1.1 million in debt, Fox News reported.
Remember Awan borrowed money from Dr. Ali al-Attar a known Iraq politician with ties to Hezbollah. I highly doubt the doctor is going to be happy about THIS guy having that kind of unpaid loan or being arrested. Something tells me, he won’t last long.
The criminal complaint and affidavit said he had bought a ticket to fly Monday to Doha, Qatar, and then Lahore, Pakistan, with a return flight booked for early January. The affidavit specifically alleged he engaged in a scheme to defraud a Congressional Federal Credit Union. It did not appear to go in depth into the other matters investigators have been looking into.
According to Fox News, Awan, 37, of Virginia, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in federal court in Washington, D.C. He was released but will have to wear a GPS monitor and abide by a curfew.
Awan also was ordered to turn over all his passports. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 21.
Look out folks…things are about to get interesting. Pandora’s box has been opened. This should help solve a lot of crimes committed by the Democrats, however, the real criminals…Hillary and Debbie still need to be brought in and questioned.
Of course, we know they will deny knowing anything and everything the Awan brothers did….but we all know who’s behind the Awan brothers don’t we? Follow the money.
Maybe we will finally get #JusticeForSeth, and solve a few other mystery murders like Shawn Lucas and Bernaton Whisenant, not to mention Molly MacCauley. It’s all tied together believe me.
