Wasserman Schultz fires aide arrested trying to leave country

Wasserman Schultz aide arrested trying to leave the country

An IT staffer for Democratic Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) was arrested for bank fraud Monday night while trying to flee the country.

The Awan brothers worked for more than 30 House and Senate Democrats, as well as former head of the DNC Wasserman Schultz, who kept Imran on even as he was being investigated for serious crimes.

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 Global Positioning System monitor and abide by a curfew.

It has been noted that Awan also violated the Congressional Federal Credit Union policy by seeking to receive $165, 00 for a rental property through the union, since it wasn't for the owner's primary residence and was later transferred to two individuals residing in the city of Faisalabad, Pakistan. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was arrested trying to leave the country. In February, POLITICO reported that Awan's network access had been cut off and that several of his family members were under investigation for an "alleged procurement scam".

Capitol Police ordered Awan to no longer come near House servers during the investigation, but Schultz chose to get around that by keeping him on an "advisory position" and allowing him to work remotely.

Awan's attorney told CBS News that his client was told he was cleared for flying and blamed "anti-Muslim bigotry" for the attacks on him.




Awan has worked for various members of the House since 2004.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for August 21, according to Gowen.

After the criminal probe was revealed, Awan moved out of the house involved in the fraud charges.

"Mr. Awan previously served as a part-time employee but his services have been terminated", a spokesman for Wasserman Schultz said in a statement.

One of the new tenants - a Marine Corps veteran married to a female Navy Officer - said he found "wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner". "Alvi had numerous pieces of luggage with her, including cardboard boxes... We turned that stuff over". Wasserman-Schultz fired Awan on Tuesday, despite the fact he had been under investigation for months. "They left in a huge hurry", the Marine said.

"It was unbelievable. I don't know where they get off thinking they're going to sue us for items we have no obligation to hold onto", he said. The Florida Democrat used a Capitol Police budget hearing to threaten "consequences" for them if the laptop wasn't returned.
