By now I’m sure you’ve all heard about the incredulous story of former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’ IT staffer, Imran Awan, a Pakistani national. It is finally being covered on FoxNews and other outlets that attempt to portray reality and let the viewers and readers decide for themselves. It is of course being ignored by the Amazon Washington Post, New York Times, and even The Wall Street Journal, with other liberal propaganda outlets such as FakeNews CNN giving it only a brief mention.
This needs to be given more air and let us hope justice is served in the end. Again, the Russia / DNC / election hacking story could go up in smoke if we find the truth that Awam might have in his possession.
After being arrested at Dulles Airport while attempting to flee to Qatar, Awan quickly hired a lawyer with deep ties to, you guessed it, the crooked Clinton family. They know the right attorneys and Awan needs all the help he can get.
Chris Gowen, a founding partner at Gowen, Rhoades, Winograd and Silva, has been the Clintons’ go-to attorney for just about everything it seems. Shortly after Awan’s arrest, Gowen came right out of the gate claiming that the IT staffer was a victim of Islamophobia. He called the arrest part of “a right-wing media-driven prosecution by a United States Attorney’s Office that wants to prosecute people for working while Muslim.” These words are eerily similar to Hillary’s defense of her husband throughout the morally disastrous Clinton administration. Deflect blame for your obvious crimes while playing the victim card is vintage Clinton.
As ZeroHedge noted last night, Imran Awan was charged with bank fraud technically but that could very well just be a placeholder for other much more serious charges to come. Many media reports point to the Awan brothers running a scheme in which they bought equipment and then overcharged various House members. In addition, some aides are claiming that the Awan’s were also blackmailing representatives based on what they found in their emails and files.
Imran was first employed back in 2004 by former Democrat Rep. Robert Wexler (FL) as an information technology director before starting work in Wasserman Schultz’s office the next year. And he raked in the dough. Awan was being paid nearly $2 million working in IT for House Democrats. Furthermore, Imran’s firm was employed by 31 Democrats in Congress, some of whom had positions high up on the intelligence and foreign affairs committees.

Perhaps the most compelling part of this developing Awan narrative is that Wasserman Schultz kept him on the taxpayer-funded payroll right up until his arrest this week! Could this be because he had something to do with the DNC / Hillary email scandals that erupted last summer during the presidential campaign? Why did she have to keep paying him all this time despite his more than suspect past? And why was he fleeing the country? He’s got more than enough dirt on her, that’s why.
You also might remember the video from May where kind ‘ole Debbie threatened the DC police commissioner with “consequences” if he did not give back a laptop used by Awan that the police had obtained. She actively tried to sabotage the investigation into Awan. She was that horrified by what they might find. And she was of course fine with the taxpayer paying for this crooked Pakistani staffer because he had more than enough information to blackmail her since he was working for her for so long.
A preliminary hearing for Mr. Awan is set for August 21st. However, in one of the most blatant conflicts of interest I’ve seen in quite some time, Steven Wasserman, Assistant Attorney for DC and brother of Wasserman Schultz, has been put in charge of overseeing the investigation of Awan. How can this possibly happen? The swamp in DC is deeper than we all thought and its corruption knows no bounds. Hypocrisy is the Democrats’ middle name and cowardly is the Republicans’.
President Trump and Attorney General Sessions need to step in to ensure that justice is served and the truth comes out.
I knew Wasserman Schultz was one of the more crooked and disgusting Democrats in DC but I did not think she was this horrendous. This Awan story has more twists and turns to it. Stay tuned.
