Feds arrest IT staffer for Wasserman Schultz trying to leave country

A House IT staffer at the center of a congressional computer equipment scandal has been arrested by federal officials and charged with bank fraud, Fox News has learned. Fox News is told officers and agents from the U.S. Capitol Police, the FBI and Customs and Border Protection were involved in the arrest of Imran Awan at Dulles International Airport. Awan, 37, of Virginia, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in federal court in Washington, D.C. He was released but will have to wear a GPS monitor and abide by a curfew. Awan also was ordered to turn over all his passports. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 21. Law enforcement authorities for months have been looking into how Awan may have double-billed the House for equipment like computers, iPads, monitors, keyboards and routers. Several relatives of Awan worked for House Democrats and were fired months ago. Awan, however, was kept on staff by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., even though he was no longer allowed access to the House server network. Wasserman Schultz, though, has now fired Awan.

Well, yeah..  He got arrested..  So, Debbie is cutting her loses there.  Unlike the whole Russian collusion with the Trump campaign fake news, THIS is a real scandal that the dominantly liberal mainstream isn’t covering.  This story is developing…and we’ll keep ya updated.
