Wasserman Schultz IT Staffer “Frantically” Liquidating $2 Million In Real Estate Assets!

0 220
Last week, a congressional aide to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Imran Awan  was arrested by the FBI at Dulles Airport as he was trying to flee the country. Imran Awan is a Pakistani IT staffer who made over $160,000 a year working for Debbie ‘Blabbermouth’ Schultz and has been employed since 2005.
Imran was arrested by the FBI after wiring $300,000 to Pakistan and misrepresenting the purpose, had previously wired money to the country and was frantically liquidating multiple real estate properties on the day he was arrested, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
You have to ask yourself, how does an IT staffer, first of all, get high security clearance? Second of all, how does an IT staffer make this kind of money to own at least 3 homes, a couple car dealerships, and still sock away a few million? Does crime pay?
It does if you work for Debbie ‘Blabbermouth’ Schultz and the DNC, especially if Hillary Clinton is involved. Did I mention his lawyer is a long-time Clinton friend and attorney that worked for the Clinton Foundation?
Imran was arrested July 24 — four months after the FBI says his wife Hina Alvi moved to Pakistan after learning the family was the subject of a criminal investigation into their work as IT administrators for House Democrats. On the day of Imran’s arrest, the couple accepted a buyer for one house owned by Hina with an asking price of $618,000 (Hawkshead Dr.) and listed another property for sale at $200,000 (Pembrook Village), real estate records show.
On June 20, a third house his wife owned was “sold” to his brother-in-law for $360,000 (Sprayer St.). In November 2016, a fourth home his wife owned was “sold” to his brother Jamal for $620,000 (Linnett Hill Dr.). In both cases, the bank financed nearly all of the purchase.
Home sales could be a vehicle to continue moving large amounts of money to Pakistan even after Imran’s arrest. Authorities released him with a GPS monitor and confiscated his passport.
Soon after Imran began working as an IT aide for Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, various House Democrats added his wife Hina, his brothers Abid and Jamal, Abid’s wife Natalia Sova, and two friends to their payrolls. But just as real estate transactions appeared to use relatives as stand-ins, there are reasons to believe not all of them were actually showing up for work.
During their time supposedly working on the Hill, one in the group was running a car dealership. Another worked at McDonald’s until he was fired, at which point he sat home all day, his housemate told The DCNF. A third of the IT troop was a 20-year old college student, and multiple members of the group spent months at a time in Pakistan.
Most of the group were paid salaries far higher than the norm for House IT staffers. They collected $4 million since 2009 — money that seemed to disappear with no sign of lavishness in their lifestyles, a six-month investigation by The DCNF found.
Capitol Police informed congressmen that the family was the target of a criminal investigation Feb. 2. Days prior, Imran wired nearly $300,000 to Pakistan and told the bank manager over the phone to wait as he googled what excuse to give him for the transfer — all while pretending to be his wife, according to an FBI affidavit.
A neighbor told The DCNF the couple abruptly moved their possessions hurriedly out of their home in February, and the FBI later confiscated hard drives Imran had left in the garage. Hina moved to Pakistan March 5 with her children. Authorities stopped her at the airport and found $12,000 cash in her suitcase, but they did not prevent her from boarding.

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.
