Why Does Imran Awan Work At His Clinton-Linked Attorney's Law Firm?

A stunning video by investigative journalist Jason Goodman of Crowdsource the Truth reveals that Pakistani IT worker Imran Awan is reportedly answering phones at the office of his attorney, Chris Gowen. 

Gowen notably worked for both Bill and Hillary Clinton in various capacities.

Gowen is a founding partner of Gowen, Rhoades, Winograd and Silva law firm, with offices in Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, Penn.

His official bio on the firm’s web site notes that he “left the Public Defender’s office to work for former President William Jefferson Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton. Chris was a fact checker for President Clinton’s memoir, ‘My Life.'”

He also served as a traveling aid for President Clinton’s national and international trips. Chris finished his tenure with the Clintons by directing the advance operations for then-Senator Hillary Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign.”

Conservative Review — which first reported Gowen’s extensive Clinton connections Wednesday — said they also include work for the Clinton Foundation and its Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Health Access Initiative. -Daily Caller

In the video, Goodman can be seen visiting the law offices of Awan's attorney, where he asks to speak with the former House IT staffer. After his request was denied, Goodman asks: "Is Imran here?", to which the employee replies "Uh, he is, why?"

Goodman responds "'Cause it sounds like he's answering your phones," which drew the retort "What's your point?

"Is he working for you?" asks Goodman, to which the employee whispers back "Go away." 

Watch: 

Awan and several family members worked for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz along with 20% of House Democrats as IT staffers who held - as the House Inspector General called it - the "keys to the kingdom," when it came to accessing confidential information on Congressional computer systems. He is currently on trial on allegations of bank fraud unrelated to his work in Congress, while potential crimes committed go unprosecuted. 

Awan was arrested one day after reports emerged that the FBI had seized a number of "smashed hard drives" and other computer equipment from the residence Imran Awan, the IT aide of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, we learn that Awan has been captured at the Dulles airport while attempted to flee the country. While charged with bank fraud, there is ample evidence that the Awans were spying on members of Congress through their access to highly-sensitive information on computers, servers and other electronic devices belonging to members of Congress. 

After months of delays Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi, appear to be about to slide right out of a D.C. courtroom with a plea deal in their bank fraud case - while a litany of far more serious allegations documented by the Daily Caller's Luke Rosiak remain unprosecuted.

“Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, were charged last summer with bank fraud. They now appear poised to strike a plea deal with the Department of Justice. A plea agreement hearing is set for July 3 before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington,” -Fox News

President Trump wasn't too pleased with the rumored plea deal:

Meanwhile, as we noted last week, the judge in the Awan case, Tanya Chutkan, was appointed to the D.C. US District Court by President Obama on June 5, 2014, after Chutkan had contributed to him for years.

 

 

Prior to her appointment to the District Court, she was a partner at law firm Boies Schiller & Flexner (BSF) where she represented scandal-plagued biotechnology company Theranos - which hired Fusion GPS to threaten the news media. Because of this, Chutkan had to recuse herself from two cases involving Fusion GPS.

So we've got Imran Awan working for his Clinton-linked attorney, appearing in for his fraud trial in front of an Obama-appointed Judge - perhaps about to receive a plea arrangement - while a litany of allegations against the Awans including high level espionage remain uninvestigated.

"Yeah, I got arrested at the airport trying to flee the country to avoid felony charges, but now I work at a Clinton-tied law firm.  What's your point?"

Burn EVERYTHING the Clintons ever touched (including Obama).  The infection is unstoppable without drastic measures.  

Fire still works because it can't be corrupted- it eats everything, no matter who pays it.  Not much else does.  Therefore, it can be trusted when nothing else can.

While on pre-trial supervised release federal probation officers require an indictee to be either searching for work or gainfully employed. Either monthly job search forms must be submitted or check stubs (proof of employment). The terms of pre-trial release are stringent and a violation could, and usually does put a person back in FCI until trial. 

Most attorneys (99.9%) will not hire a client. Someone did Imran a huge favor. Or they wanted to keep him on a very short leash.

Chris Gowen has told the court that Imran Awan has been supporting himself as an Uber driver. Claims that his client should not be restricted to less than a 50 mile radius of travel because it might cause employment issues. Imran is wearing an ankle bracelet.

There is more to the story. Jason Goodman accompanied one of Imran's tenants of a house Imran owns when they went together to the DC Metro police to hand over her laptop as evidence. Imran had a key to the house and would enter the property 2-3 times a week. Her laptop disappeared for a few days then reappeared on her bed. As stated before, his usual line of work is in IT. Rather than turn over the laptop to the prosecutors as requested, someone at the DC Metro police handed it over to the attorney for the defense. So now Imran is working at the defense attorney's office where he probably has access to the laptop/evidence.

Of course, you have to balance this off with the fact that Debbie Wasserman Schultz's brother Steve is the Asst. US Attorney in the same office that is prosecuting Imran. So, he is in a top supervisory position over the first year line prosecutor who was assigned this case.

Things are filthy dirty in the swamp.

Simple question, many answers:

1. So HRC can keep an eye on him.

2. So HRC has a mechanism for paying him off, indefinitely.

3. So he is surrounded by "HRC's team" to prevent anything "bad" from happening.

4. Because he has tons of secrets and until HRC has collected all of the physical evidence he possesses he is a very valuable (dangerous) commodity.

5. Once he has outlived his usefulness he can be immediately Arkancided by the team at the law firm.

And that is just for starters!

Fix the thing in a refined Ottoman style. Sultan sends a silk rope to a person and should he not understand the message or does not comply with, soon come guards and give him help with the decision.

Jason Goodman is not an investigative journalist.  His YouTube channel features at least weekly programs with a meth addict who lives in his car, among other colorful personalities.  And today is the one-year anniversary of Goodman's immortal meltdown -- "Who spoofed the Seth Rich files?"  Need better sourcing on this one.
