Wasserman Schultz staffer caught trying to escape to Pakistan with $300,000 most of it wired to Paki
As previously reported, Chad Pergram of Fox News tweeted a breaking report on Dem Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Pakistani IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested at Dulles airport while trying to flee the United States.
Awan had $12,000 cash on him at the time of the arrest.
The Daily Caller is reporting that the Pakistani IT staffers wired $283,000 from Congressional Federal Credit Union in a House office building to two people in Pakistan. Awan was also carrying $12,000 on him at the time of the arrest.
"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 the Congressional Federal Credit Union in a House office building to two individuals in Pakistan.
“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.
Wasserman Schultz has refused to fire Imran, 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 him.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported the FBI seized smashed hardrives belonging to Imran Awan.
Is justice finally being served to the DNC? In an exclusive report by the Daily Caller reveals “FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator.“
Daily Caller reports:
"Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, the individual told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
A high-level congressional source, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.
Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.
TGP also previously reported that former Chairman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with ‘consequences’ for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani IT staffer suspected of massive cyber-security breaches.
It is becoming more and more evident that Wasserman Schultz and the DNC are the ones hiding the truth from the American people and from investigators. This scandal is way bigger than the Russia hoax. As usual, the Democrats use lies to deflect from their own crimes.
