Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s right-hand information technology (IT) aide was arrested attempting to leave the country just a few hours after The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group revealed that he is the target of an FBI investigation.

The employees had wired $283,000 from a House office building to two individuals in Pakistan, and carried $12,000 in cash on him at the airport.

“On January 18, 2017 at 12:09 pm, an international wire transfer request form was submitted [at the Congressional Federal Credit Union] at the Longworth House Office Building in the District of Columbia, in the amount of $283,000.00, to two individuals in Faisalabad, Pakistan,” according to a 10-page affidavit obtained by TheDCNF.

Imran Awan, a Pakistani-born IT aide, had access to all emails and files of dozens of members of Congress, as well as the password to the iPad that Wasserman Schultz used for Democratic National Committee business before she resigned as its head in July 2016. He was apprehended while attempting to flee the U.S., Fox News first reported.

Soon after Imran began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, four of his relatives appeared on the payroll of other Democrats — many from Wasserman Schultz’s home state of Florida — at inflated salaries, but Democratic staffers said they were rarely seen at work. They collected $4 million in total.

House authorities told members in February that Awan and his relatives were suspects in a criminal investigation into theft and IT abuses, and they were banned from the Capitol network.

Wasserman Schultz has refused to fire Awan, despite being a known criminal suspect in a cybersecurity probe for months, and has blocked Capitol Police from searching a laptop they confiscated because it was tied to Awan.

TheDCNF reported Sunday night that the FBI had joined the investigation and seized smashed hard drives from Awan’s home. The next day, the FBI apprehended him at Dulles Airport after noticing that he had purchased a ticket to Pakistan, routed through Qutar.

The affidavit says he was charged with bank fraud due to a mortgage scheme, which was one of several financial schemes TheDCNF has detailed. It appears to be a placeholder for future charges, spurred because of the attempt to leave the country, and does not mention his work for Congress, which is the investigation’s primary focus.


Read it all and all of Luke Rosiak’s reports on the Awan brothers congressional intelligence breach. There is, however, conflicting reports about when and who smashed the hard drives. via FBI Says ‘Awan Brothers’ Hard Drives Were Smashed After Confiscated As Law Enforcement Evidence.

  1. Freedom of Speech and the complete destruction of Sharia Law and its supporters will come from the barrel of Vigilantes.

  2. The Dems need to be removed from having any access to any Classified Information, Period. They have a proven track record of mishandling information and not protecting interests of The United States. Anybody else would be in jail for the gross Security Violations these folks did.

  3. Big, big stuff here, folks. This should be top news on every news outlet. But is it? No.

    This is the Watergate scandal the Dimocrats have been trying to cover up.

  4. I am outraged,Wasserman Schultz is guilty of ‘COLLUSION’. And many other criminal activities.
    And the islamic controlled news now shouts that about President Trump over nonexistant offenses.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
