Townhall -- Imran Awan, the Pakistani IT vendor of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, was arrested by the FBI while trying to flee the country Tuesday, according to a Fox News reporter.
Fox News Capitol Hill reporter Chad Pergram tweeted about the arrest at Dulles International Airport, which he said stemmed from “bank fraud” charges:
According to Pergram, Rep. Wasserman Schultz responded to the news by terminating Mr. Awan: The investigative unit of the Daily Caller News Foundation reported Monday that Imran Awan and other members of the Awan family were under investigation by both the FBI and Capitol Police for “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network.” According to that report, the Awans had rented their former Washington, DC-area residence to a family while they departed for parts unknown. After discovering they had left “smashed computer hard-drives” and other computer equipment at the Lorton, Virginia home, the Awans tried desperately to retrieve them before they were seized by investigators, going so far as threatening to sue the renters.
The contents of the hard drives is unclear, but Imran Awan and his brothers are reported to have provided services as IT vendors for several House Democrats.
Pergrams tweets suggest that the central criminal violation involved embezzling IT budget money from House Democrats:
It is unclear what connection these allegations have to the reports of smashed hard drives and laptops now seized by federal authorities. An earlier report from the investigation appeared to show Rep. Wasserman Schultz prepared to go to bat against Capitol Police on Awan’s behalf, raising further questions about the nature of the computer equipment. Wasserman Schultz asked Capitol Police Chief Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa to return a seized laptop to her, appearing to threaten “consequences” if he did not.
Blog Author's Comments: This could be the beginning of a big story, but the leftist media will no doubt ignore it because of a Democrat's involvement. Her laptop has something that Wasserman Schultz does not want the FBI to divulge. One would have to believe that there really is too much out there concerning the DNC and Hillary Clinton to just dry up and go away. This gets crazier by the week.
We have to know that the whole Trump/Russia fake news thing was concocted as a smoke-screen to distract from the real crimes, those committed by the Clintons, DNC and Obama White House and his people. The DNC looks more and more like a criminal organization every day. Can you imagine the secrets these people are trying so hard to hide? I would say the FBI should be doing a thorough investigation of them but they are infected with liberalism too.
Why would you hire two guys from Pakistan to be your IT managers? Ms. Wasserman-Schultz did everything she could to make this investigation go away. I wonder what is really happening here. She fired him? Apparently for getting caught because the only thing new here is him trying to leave the country and getting apprehended while doing so. Once the mainstream media runs with this story, if they even touch it, they will make Wasserman-Schultz the victim.
Quote For The Day: "What Trump is talking about here is: Why aren’t these Republican committees, why aren’t these Republican investigators — why isn’t my attorney general — looking into Hillary Clinton’s crimes? If you’re gonna investigate what-all went on with Russia, how in the world do you leave the Democrats out of it? How do you leave Hillary Clinton out of it? The Republicans run the show! It’s time for the Republicans to start acting like it." -- Rush Limbaugh
