Arrested Dem IT staffer caught fleeing US is out on bail – lawyers up with major Clinton ally

Who promptly blames Islamophobia. Source: Arrested Dem IT staffer’s attorney is MAJOR Clinton ally

by Jordan Schachtel

The attorney for a prominent Democratic congressional employee at the center of a major criminal investigation has deep ties to the Clinton machine in Washington.

Attorney Chris Gowen is serving as the lawyer for Imran Awan, a Pakistani-American IT professional who was apprehended at Dulles Airport this week as he reportedly attempted to leave the country for Pakistan.

Awan has been charged with bank fraud (which the Daily Caller reports as a potential “placeholder” charge for much more serious coming charges), and the FBI has been deeply involved in the process, leading some to suspect that there may be a foreign espionage component to the investigation. As an IT staffer, Awan secured highly sensitive information from several members of Congress, including representatives in the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees. Imran Awan is just one of the individuals in a criminal probe. Other suspects in the investigation reportedly fled to Pakistan.

After Awan’s arrest, Gowen immediately jumped into the fray, alleging that Awan was a victim of Islamophobia. He labeled Awan’s arrest as part of “a right-wing media-driven prosecution by a United States Attorney’s Office that wants to prosecute people for working while Muslim.”

His statement displays a remarkably similar tone to the one often promulgated by his former boss, Hillary Clinton, who often spoke of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” to undermine her family and her leftist ideals.

Gowen’s past includes several stints in the Clinton machine’s orbit. He began his legal life as a public defender but left that job for the Bill Clinton White House. At the time, he also worked for then-Senator Hillary Clinton. Years later, he jumped on board Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, directing advance operations there, according to his biography from his law firm, Gowen Rhoades Winograd & Silva, PLLC. In another bio page, Gowen states he has consulted with former Democratic presidential contenders John Kerry and John Edwards.

Another biography, from American University, says Gowen worked with several controversial Clinton projects, including The Clinton Global Initiative, The Clinton Foundation, and The Clinton Health Access Initiative.

In 2012, Gowen went to bat for Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, whose family is deeply connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. After GOP reps explored Abedin’s nefarious ties, Gowen pledged to “stand with Huma.”

Along with his private practice, the longtime Clinton aide is also an adjunct professor at American University Washington College of Law, where he teaches courses in legal ethics and law practice management.

Gowen’s Clinton connections are intriguing on another level, given that Awan’s employer in the House, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, remains a close Clinton confidant. The former Democratic National Committee chair resigned from her position after emails surfaced alleging she attempted to tip the scales of the Democratic primary in Clinton’s favor. Wasserman Schultz was also the 2008 campaign co-chair of Hillary Clinton’s first failed run for president.

It remains unclear at this time how Imran Awan managed to link up with Gowen and retain his services.

A preliminary hearing for Mr. Awan is scheduled for August 21.

As the Daily Caller reported, Awan:

was arrested Monday attempting to board a flight to Pakistan after wiring $283,000 from the Congressional Federal Credit Union to that country.

And now he’s out on bail, via CNN:  Democratic staffer arrested on bank fraud charge

Bill Miller, a spokesman for the US attorney’s office in DC, said Awan was arraigned in US District Court on Tuesday and charged with one count of bank fraud. He pleaded not guilty and was released “pursuant to a high-intensity supervision program,” Miller said.

Miller said Awan would have a curfew and a GPS monitor and that he could not go more than 50 miles away from his home and had to turn over his passports, according to the conditions of his release.

So a Pakistani Muslim under investigation by the FBI for numerous crimes and was arrested trying to flee the country is now out on bail! And the Clinton’s are involved. Are more arrests pending?

Christopher Gowen, an attorney for Awan, said Schultz’s office fired him after the arrest. David Damron, a spokesman for Wasserman Schultz, confirmed to CNN that Awan had worked in the Florida Democrat’s office and had been fired.

Asked if Alvi, who the complaint refers to at length, had been charged, Gowen said, “Not yet.”

The activities of the Awan’s is so far reaching and tangled it is mind-blowing. Don’t believe it? Just watch a few minutes of the crowd-sourced investigation into the Clintons and Awads. Since the elite media has chosen to ignore the story.

  1. Now why would Clinton support and defend someone who has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood? Its as if the Clintons were in the pay of shady, crooked organizations solely for the sake of enlarging their modest Swiss bank accounts! Color me skeptical. I mean Buba swore to us he had nothing to do with that woman in front of hundreds of millions of Americans. Can we hold anyone to higher standards than that?

  2. Don’t forget, while he was then Gov. of Arkansas, both Clintons were involved in MAJOR cocaine ring (The Clinton Crime Family’s Circle of Power was on vhs, but I’m confident someone has uploaded it online). Denying receiving top-piece from Ms. Lewinsky is most assuredly the least of the crimes committed. They’re both criminals. George Soros was the biggest contributor to Hillary’s campaign, born a Hungarian Jew in Budapest, he later changed his last name to Soros, (which means, “to soar”) then went to work for the invading Nazis in 1944, at the tender age of 14 yrs old (Awwh..such a ‘good’ boy). It is said that until the end of the war in 1945, he worked with a government official, helping him confiscate property from the local Jewish population(!).

    In an 1998 interview with 60 Minutes, Soros described the year of German occupation as “the happiest time in my life.” These people literally get away with murder. Why should anyone be surprised that Awan is out on bail, wearing his new, fashionable ankle bracelet?!? Not that I condone it, just that I’m NOT at all shocked or surprised. It’s part of the ongoing travesty of justice. And the scope of corruption is very wide-spread.

    • Correction: Tivadar Schwartz, George’s father (lawyer) changed the family’s name from Schwartz to Soros.

      I mentioned Soros in my comment, as it’s certainly relevant, given both the connections to the Clintons, as well as his ongoing globalist agenda. He’s behind the European refugee crisis & you can best believe he’s involved in the massive influx of Muslims into this country. “Order from chaos” is a maxim of ordo novus seclorum/NWO. Nothing they do is for anyone’s benefit but their own.

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