Title companies can wire large sums abroad without attracting the suspicion Imran did at the bank, and with Hina — the nominal sole owner of each of the houses — residing in that country, it would be natural to send the proceeds to her.

In addition to the three houses sold or slated to be sold since June 20, Imran’s lawyer, Chris Gowen, told The New York Times that the $283,000 wire in January was preceded by other similar transfers to Pakistan. “Gowen said the transfer represented the latest payment by his client for a piece of property he was buying in the country,” The Times reported.
Gowen would not tell TheDCNF whether the proceeds of the $360,000 June 20 home sale were wired to Pakistan, nor where the income from the two upcoming sales would go. The office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia declined to comment on whether it would block the disbursements.
The value of the known homes that have been sold since November or are currently being sold is $1.8 million. There is also the $283,000 January wire transfer from the Congressional bank, in addition to previous wires of unknown amounts that Imran’s lawyer acknowledged.
Authorities arrested Imran at Dulles airport trying to fly to Pakistan and accused him of taking out a home-equity loan on a rental house by falsely claiming that it was his primary residence and that the money would be used for home improvements. Real estate pictures show no improvements were made, and the money was sent to Pakistan.
The November 2016 sale of the Linnett Hill home from Imran’s wife to his brother likely broke the same law. Realtors said it was extremely unlikely that the five-percent-down loan Jamal Awan used to buy the house from his brother would have permitted Jamal to continue to rent it out to others, which he did.
A fourth Awan sibling, Adeela, and her husband Naeem Shah have now been drawn into the web with the June 20 sale of the Sprayer Street home to Naeem. Naeem also used a five-percent-down mortgage that would almost always require the couple to use the house as their primary residence, but they already own another home.
So you have FOUR homes! One home with an asking price of $618,000. Another home with an asking price of $200,000. A third home, sold for $360,000 to his brother-in-law. A fourth home sold for $620,000. A bank financed ALL of these? WOW! Talk about connections!
How does someone who has a salary as an IT staffer for the DNC make the MAXIMUM salary $160,000 afford to have 4 homes and a couple car dealerships?
Sounds like Imran must have a few really nice connections…and a connection at the title company. A title company that can wire large sums of money to an international bank account. It’s time to Follow the money!
So, we have at least 3 houses AND $283,000 wired overseas. Doesn’t anyone even find that a little suspicious? This guy could have wired at least $4 million bucks overseas! Where did it go? What is he financing?!
The Imran family was paid extremely well. Imran himself was paid over $2 million working as an IT support staffer for the Democrats. Democrats who were members of committees like the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Imran and the other Awans had access to the emails of these Democrats that served on these committees that shared classified and high security clearance information. Information that would be valuable to our enemies like ISIS.
Members from Florida that employed Iran Awan and his family members in addition to Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, included Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, U.S. Reps. Lois Frankel, D-West Palm Beach, and Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, and former U.S. Reps. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, and Gwen Graham, D-Tallahassee, who is now a 2018 Democratic candidate for governor.
(Deutch even paid an associate of Imran’s, Rao Abbas a salary when he threatened Imran about defaulting on a loan. What’s up with THAT?)
Earlier last week the FBI “seized smashed computer hard drives” from a home that Imran Awan owned and had been renting to tenants.
Hmmm. Smashed computer drives…does that remind you of anyone?
“We have to get to the bottom of this, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz has obstructed at every level on something that affects potentially our national security. So to have this gentlemen try and leave the country yesterday, and now we know there is bank fraud and we know he destroyed these hard drives…I mean, it is a long story but something we have to get to the bottom of,” said Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel in Fox News interview this week.
