Imran Awan Transferred Nearly $300K To Pakistan Before Attempting To Flee, Lawyer Claims Islamophobia

Content originally published at

Following news of the arrest and booking of Debbie Wasserman Schultz's top IT staffer which followed a report on Monday that destroyed computer equipment was recovered from a home owned by Imran and his wife - the Daily Caller's Luke Rosiak is out with another bombshell; Imran Awan wired $283,000 to Pakistan before attempting to flee the country to join his wife (who left the country with $12,000 cash) - hours after the Daily Caller reported Awan was under investigation.

Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s top information technology (IT) aide was arrested Monday attempting to board a flight to Pakistan after wiring $283,000 from the Congressional Federal Credit Union to that country.


He attempted to leave the country hours after The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group revealed that he is the target of an FBI investigation, and the FBI apprehended him at the airport.

Credit union officials permitted the wire to go through, and his wife has already fled the country to Pakistan, after police confronted her at the airport and found $12,000 in cash hidden in her suitcase but did not stop her from boarding, court documents show.

Shady Loan From Iraqi Doctor

In February, the Daily Caller delivered two bombshells: that the Awans were under criminal investigation after being caught accessing congressional computers without permission, and they had borrowed, laundered, and never repaid $100,000 from a super shady Iraqi expat physician - Dr. Ali al-Attar, a Hezbollah-linked fugitive who led a group of other expats which regularly advised the Bush administration on their plans to invade Iraq in 2002-2003 (source <-- read up on this guy)

Philip Giraldi, a former CIA officer, wrote that Attar “was observed in Beirut, Lebanon conversing with a Hezbollah official” in 2012–shortly after the loan was made. -DC

Al-Attar's license to practice medicine was revoked by the Maryland State Board of Physicians and he had to pay a $50,000 fine for unprofessional conduct, healthcare fraud, and failure to cooperate with an investigation.

Sugar Daddy 

Rep Theo Deutch (D-FL) paid a disgruntled vendor the Awans owed money

Adding to the list of interesting connections, when the Awans stopped paying vendors for a car dealership they owned, a U.S. Congressman from Florida began paying a monthly salary to a man who had threatened to sue the Awans. 

The brothers had numerous additional sources of income, all of which seemed to disappear. While they were supposedly working for the House, the brothers were running a car dealership full-time that didn’t pay its vendors, and after one — Rao Abbas — threatened to sue them, he began receiving a paycheck from Rep. Theodore Deutch (D-FL), who like Wasserman Schultz represents Florida.

While they were working for House members including members of the homeland security and foreign affairs committees, the dealership took and never repaid a $100,000 loan from Dr. Ali Al-Attar, who is a fugitive from U.S. authorities and has been linked to Hezbollah.

-Daily Caller

Oddly, their car dealership was called "Cars International A, LLC," referred to as "CIA" in court documents:

Debbie, Debbie, Debbie

Although Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is now trying to distance herself - claiming "Mr. Awan was a "part-time" employee whose serviced had been terminated," DWS refused to fire him after Awan was barred from accessing house computer equipment - instead changing his title and allowing him to continue to access House property.

Wasserman Schultz lashed out at investigators and changed Awan’s title to “adviser” instead of firing him after House authorities banned him from the network. -Daily Caller

Except that Schultz appears to have been much closer friends with the Awans than her statement would imply. Again, from Daily Caller:

Wasserman-Schultz also had computer equipment seized by investigators - including a laptop found hidden in a shady corner of the House building, which was recovered by DC Capitol Police, and which Wasserman-Schultz threatened the police chief with "consequences" if it wasn't returned.

Imran Awan also had the password to an iPad used by Debbie Wasserman Schultz when the DNC emails were given to Wikileaks.


Predictably - the Awans' lawyer fired off a statement claiming "anti-Muslim bigotry in the literal heart of our democracy, the House of Representatives," weaving in "ultra-right-wing" and "pizzagate" references to somehow suggest that the Awans holding their stepmother captive in a house before carting her to Pakistan so they could extort her inheritance (fraud) is somehow racist. Or that the House of Representatives banned the Awans from their computer network because of bigotry, as opposed to members of congress noticing the Awans had gained unauthorized access to sensitive information.

An aside - credit where credit's due

Luke Rosiak of the Daily Caller News Foundation has been all over the Awan family situation from the beginning. Here's an interview with him from a few weeks ago discussing the case. Controversial investigator and YouTube personality George Webb has also done extensive research into the Awans, and while some have criticized Webb - the arrest of Imran Awan validates much of what he's been saying for months over his YouTube channel. Here's a summary.

Imran Awan is currently out on bail with a GPS tracker and a curfew. No word on whether he's depressed, distraught, or otherwise feeling like committing suicide with two bullets to the back of the head.

Something tells me Steve Wasserman will represent the Awan brother, and if necessary his sister Debbie Wasserman Schultz as well. Hopefully, indictments come down for all the dnc who were part of the Clinton foundation with Awan testimony, whatever evidence is on the hard-drives or on servers.   Forgot, he will never see trial due to suicide too bad.

James Comey's gotta be bummed that he missed his chance to bust a spy ring.And Awan's gotta be bummed that his whereabouts are tracked to within a few feet whilst a lot of well-connected folks would prefer him dead.

Almost 300K is what they've been able to Trace in 2 days since he got arrested at the Airport.I guarantee you that they moved a shit ton more Goodies when nobody was watching, probably with the help of Diplomatic pouches and all kinds of neat stuff.It's Pakistan we are talking about and these guys are not entirely dumb. Dude might have an accident in Jail but I bet his cousins back in the old country have been holding some Assets for their clan for quite some time. It's a cultural certainty.

They will not murder Awan like they did Seth Rich because he probably has a kill file that would lock up half of Democrat Congress.DWS is the one they will kill

If a democrat is involved, something probably is not right.  If that democrat is a muslim, something for sure is not right.  If it's a Pakistani Muslim, well....  is there something more sure than "for sure"?

Last night I read that this guy was swiftly out on bail with an ankle bracelet and that shows up in this article.    Anyone know if that's still the case because if that were you or me, we would be in isolation in the slammer with 15 minute checks.

Duplicate passport and private jet out of the country to a non-extradition island in the Carribean."You bastards put me in jail and I shall revel all your dirt."Senator (putting his hand over the mic and turning to his friends), "We gotta get this guy out of here. What do we do?"Senator's aide leaning over and whispering in the Senator's ear.  "Put an ankle bracelet on him and release his on a measly bail amount. He will leave the country in a heartbeat."

Cars International A .... they couldn't come up with something else?

Anyone who Isn't enraged by this on several levels is a muppet.

Anyone who paid these dirty little fucks needs to be investigated for aiding and abetting.

At least CNN is giving this equal time to whatever racy dress Ivanka wore. Oh wait, they haven't said shit. Prima facia evidence of intent to flee justice after getting paid off and that doesn't warrant a sniff from the bloodhound Carl Bernstein? My faith has been shaken.

Just so everyones paying attention, these are the ones who need to be primaried for voting nay on a clean ObamaCare repeal...Sens McCain, Murkowski, Capito, Lamar Alexander, Collins, Portman, and Heller. That is of course, if McCain survives to make it to a primary.
