Wasserman Schultz staffer arrested trying to leave the country

BY JOHN BOWDEN - 07/25/17 05:49 PM EDT

A House IT aide working for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), the former Democratic National Committee chairwoman, was arrested Tuesday on bank fraud charges while trying to leave the country.

Fox News reported that Imran Awan was arrested at Dulles International Airport.

Awan, an IT staffer who has worked for many House Democrats and is currently employed by Wasserman Schultz, was allegedly at the center of a scheme that involved double-charging the House for IT equipment, and may also have exposed House information online, according to Fox.

Awan and his family have reportedly worked for House Democrats for years. He declared bankruptcy in 2012, but has made millions of dollars on the House payroll over at least a decade of work for various members, according to a Politico report.

In March, a group of House Democrats fired Awan and one other staffer over their alleged involvement in the scheme and the looming criminal investigation. However, Fox News reported Tuesday that Wasserman Schultz still has Awan on her staff's payroll despite him being barred from accessing the House's computer system since February.

At the time, Reps. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) and Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) both defended Awan.

“As of right now, I don’t see a smoking gun,” Meeks told Politico in March. “I have seen no evidence that they were doing anything that was nefarious.”

“He needs to have a hearing. Due process is very simple. You don’t fire someone until you talk to them,” Fudge added

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.”

The big worry for DWS and other Dems is the question of these people pledging out lesser charges for what they know. If I ama Dem and those people EVER touched my office's systems and I had some IG to hide, I would be very worried at this point.

The Dems should be turning states evidence against the bad guys....but they're trying to defend them and cover up.

You would think that if they were taken advantage of, or victims, they wouldnt be acting this way.

What do you think DWS is hiding? Does she just not want the good guys to access her communications? Or is she just hiding incompetence?

Why would Imran Awan be getting Pelosi's iPad while she was in an all day meeting? 

Congress intel sold for cash to foreign buyers, used for blackmail?
