Wasserman Schultz aide arrested trying to leave the country

Posted July 27, 2017

Fox News reports that "officers and agents from the U.S. Capitol Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Customs and Border Protection were involved in the arrest of Imran Awan at Dulles International Airport".

The Hill is reporting Awan and his family worked for House Democrats for years making millions before the scandal erupted.

Former House IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested Monday night at Dulles International Airport where he was "trying to leave the country", Fox news reported Tuesday evening.

Imran Awan, 37, was sacked by Wasserman Schultz after his arrest Monday night at Dulles International Airport. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as of Tuesday morning.Awan pled not guilty on Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. "He was a taxpayer-funded government employee until yesterday when she finally fired him", McDaniel said during a Fox Business Network interview on Wednesday.

Per the Daily Caller, Awan transferred about $300,000 to an account in Pakistan in January.

In July 2016, Wasserman Schultz resigned from her DNC position after whistleblowing website Wilileaks released hacked emails revealing she and other DNC staff acted to influence the presidential primary process in favor of candidate Hillary Clinton and against US Senator Bernie Sanders.

The couple said they had wanted to give Charlie a real chance of getting better and that a "whole lot of time has been wasted". He travelled to London last week to examine Charlie for the first time and discuss the case with Great Ormond Street doctors.

Hina Alvi, Awan's wife, and three other House aides, including Abid Awan and Jamal Awan, relatives of Imran Awan, and Rao Abbas, are all linked to the criminal investigation.

Law enforcement authorities for months have been looking into how Awan may have double-billed the House for equipment like computers, iPads, monitors, keyboards and routers. "Alvi had numerous pieces of luggage with her, including cardboard boxes..."

According to the arrest warrant, the children "were abruptly taken out of school without notifying" their teachers, and investigators do not "believe that Alvi has any intention to return to the United States".

The feds nabbed Pakistani-born Imran Awan - who was the target of a federal investigation for allegedly being involved in theft and IT abuses while working for the Democratic National Committee, according to The Daily Caller.

A spokesman for Wasserman Schultz's office told Politico in March that Awan worked for the staff in an "advisory" role "providing advice on technology issues". Awan is also unable to travel more than 50 miles away from his Virginia home.

An arraignment is scheduled for August 21, according to Gowen. He added, "No charges, evidence or findings from the investigation have been formally shared with our office, so we can not comment on them".
