The computer specialist, Imran Awan, who worked for many Democrats in Congress, including Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and is now charged with bank fraud sent money and gifts to Pakistani officials.

A now-indicted IT aide to various House Democrats was sending money and gifts to government officials in Pakistan and received protection from the Pakistani police, multiple relatives claim.

A Democratic aide also said Imran Awan personally bragged to him that he could have people tortured in Pakistan. Awan’s lawyer acknowledged that he was sending money to a member of the Faisalabad police department, but said there was a good explanation.

The relatives said Awan and his brothers were also sending IT equipment, such as iPhones, to the country during the same period in which fraudulent purchase orders for that equipment were allegedly placed in the House, and in which congressional equipment apparently went missing. Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, said the brothers were paying police officer Azhar Awan and that he is their cousin.

The article suggests that Awan was involved in a lot of shady deals, and was also somewhat of a thug in how he treated others. It also suggests that the money and equipment he obtained was obtained illegally. Whether he was funneling information to Islamic sources hostile to the U.S. remains unclear, though what has been released so far suggests that this remains a strong possibility.

    Who wants odds that this story is left to gather dust and not be spoken of again in the main stream media?
    I suspect there may be something fairly big here: large or sensitive data lost; a possible blackmail case (ALL SPECULATION).
    At the least, it appears the situation is such that sensitive data could be lost – very lax security again. This is a very embarrassing situation for the Democratic Party. For the Congress as a whole this situation is intolerable and I hear nothing to note it is being remedied.

    Chris–
    Good stuff.

    (Personally, I have no doubt whatsoever, the muslim-brotherhood has thoroughly infiltrated huge portions of our federal government and 100% of the democrat-party ruling elite.)
