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.
Hours before President Obama’s second-to-last State of the Union address, Debbie Wasserman Schultz made her first TV appearance since the Democrats lost their majority in the Senate and slipped further into the minority in the House.
Up til yesterday, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz (D-FL), the DNC’s chairwoman, had been in hiding after the humiliation her party suffered in last November’s mid-term elections. Frankly, I’m stunned she still has her job. But, hey.. If the DNC wants to rally around a loser like her, then that’s their call.
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Wednesday refused to associate Democratic Senate candidates with President Barack Obama’s policies.
Rep. Debbie “Blabbermouth”-Schultz (D-FL) is like every other Dem federal legislator running for election, or re-election. They’re running away from Obama as fast as they can because he is about as popular with the electorate as Ebola. Unfortunately for her, she’s also the DNC chief. So, when asked about Obama, she just dances and avoids the subject…even on MSNBC.
GOP blasts Dem party leader for saying Gov. Walker gives women ‘back of his hand’
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) is a disgusting tool.. Not only do I hope Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) wins his well-deserved re-election in November..something that is definitely possible. But, additionally, I hope whoever is challenging Debbie, unseats her. This is not the first time Debbie has seriously crossed the line with her obnoxious, over-the-top, unfounded, hateful rhetoric designed to whip up the base. Its time for her and her blabbermouth to go. Hopefully the good people of Florida’s 23rd Congressional District agree and throw her butt out of office in November.
