Imran Awan, a House staffer at the center of a criminal investigation potentially impacting dozens of Democratic lawmakers, has been arrested on bank fraud and is prevented from leaving the country while the charges are pending.
A senior House Democratic aide confirmed Awan was still employed by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) as of Tuesday morning. But David Damron, a spokesman for Wasserman Schultz, later said that Awan was fired on Tuesday.
Awan pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
Awan is accused of attempting to defraud the Congressional Federal Credit Union by obtaining a $165,000 home equity loan for a rental property, which is against the credit union’s policies since it is not the owner’s primary residence. Those funds were then included as part of a wire transfer to two individuals in Faisalabad, Pakistan.
Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport on Monday evening before boarding a flight to Lahore, Pakistan. His wife, Hina Alvi, has already left the country for Pakistan along with their children. Federal agents do not believe Alvi has any intention of returning to the U.S., according to a court document.
This is a huge story that the MSM should be covering, but of course it would be damning to the Russian BS they are spewing.
Awan, a longtime IT staffer who worked for more than two dozen House Democrats, has been at the center of a criminal investigation on Capitol Hill for months related to procurement theft. Several of his family members, also IT staffers at the time, were implicated in the ongoing investigation.
Most Democratic lawmakers cut ties with Awan and his family after the criminal investigation came to light in early February. But Awan has continued to be employed by Wasserman Schultz, although it’s unclear what his job duties are given he has been barred from accessing the House IT system for months.
Alvi, another House staff member involved in the Capitol Hill investigation, left the country with their three daughters, headed for Pakistan in March, according to an affidavit filed in the Awan case. Alvi had “numerous pieces of luggage” and more than $12,000 in cash, FBI agent Brandon Merriman wrote in the affidavit.
In March, a group of House Democrats fired Awan and one other staffer over their alleged involvement in the scheme and the looming criminal investigation. However, Fox News reported Tuesday that Wasserman Schultz still has Awan on her staff’s payroll despite him being barred from accessing the House’s computer system since February.
At the time, Reps. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) and Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) both defended Awan.
“As of right now, I don’t see a smoking gun,” Meeks told Politico in March. “I have seen no evidence that they were doing anything that was nefarious.”
“He needs to have a hearing. Due process is very simple. You don’t fire someone until you talk to them,” Fudge added
Active Duty Hawaii Soldier, Ikaika Erik Kang, Arrested for Trying to Provide Material Support & Training to ISIS
Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang Arrested in Hawaii, Pledging Material Support to ISIS …
34 year old Sgt. Ikaika Erik Kang, a decorated veteran of two deployments to the Middle East, was arrested by an FBI SWAT team at the Schofield Barracks in Honolulu, Hawaii for trying to provide material support and training to ISIS. According to the criminal complaint, Kang “attempted to provide material support to ISIS by providing both classified military documents, and other sensitive but unclassified military documents, to persons he believed would pass the documents to ISIS.” The FBI said that no classified materials actually ended up in the hands of the terrorist group. Kang swore an oath of loyalty to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Saturday, shortly before his arrest. After doing so, Kang allegedly told an undercover agent that he wanted to use his rifle to “kill a bunch of people.”
His father is shocked by the allegations and believes his son may be suffering from PTSD from his tours overseas. According to his military service record, Ikaika Kang was deployed to Iraq in 2010, and served in Afghanistan in 2014.
An active duty Hawaii soldier who was arrested for allegedly trying to provide material support and training to the Islamic State told an undercover federal agent Saturday that he wanted to kill “a bunch of people.
A criminal complaint alleges that Ikaika Erik Kang, 34, was arrested at his Waipahu apartment Saturday, shortly after pledging his loyalty to ISIS and making the threatening statement.
“A probable cause arrest was made in the interest of public safety,” Honolulu FBI Special Agent in Charge Paul D. Delacourt said Monday, after Kang’s first appearance in federal court.
He added, “We believe that Kang was a lone actor and was not associated with others who present a threat to Hawaii.”
Democrat Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe Says After GOP Attempted Mass Assaination … 93 Million Americans Are Killed By Guns Everyday (VIDEO)
ANOTHER IGNORANT LIBERAL QUICK TO EXPLOIT A TRAGEDY TO GRAB PEOPLE’S GUNS …
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said following the shooting in Alexandria, VA yesterday that 93 million Americans were killed every day by guns. Huh? McAuliffe, the so-called Democrat darling to run for president in 2020 repeated it, 93 million. Imagine that, there are on 321.5 million people live in the United States. In other words, according to this brain surgeon who was so quick to bring up gun control following the shooting, without knowing any of the facts, it would take 3.5 days to kill everyone in the U.S. by gun violence. Care to amend your data Gov.McAuliffe? He would later correct himself when questioned by a reporter and say 93 individuals. Missed it by that much, McAuliffe says this is not what this day is about, yet he made it exactly about gun control. Interestingly enough, it was the two Capital police individuals that there there as a protective detail that saved all of these Congressmen and prevented this massacre.
“Let me say this, I think we need to do more to protect all of our citizens,” McAuliffe said. “I have long advocated—this is not what today is about, but there are too many guns on the street. We lose 93 million Americans a day to gun violence.”
“Sir, just checking. Ninety-three million is a big number. Did you mean to say 93 million?” one reporter then asked.
“Ninety-three individuals a day,” McAuliffe corrected himself.
GOP Assasination Gunman ID’d as 66 Year Old James Hodgkinson … Was a Trump Hating Democrat, Volunteered For Sanders Presidential Campaign (Update: Suspect Died at Hospital)
ASSASSIN WAS A FAR-LEFTY, HATED TRUMP, BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTER …
The gunman who opened fire yesterday in Alexandria, Va on Republican Congressman as they practiced baseball for an upcoming charity even has been identified as 66 year old James T. Hodgkinson from Belleville, Illinois. According to accounts, he was an uber-lib who hated Donald Trump and Republicans. By all accounts, this man snapped. One has to wonder whether it was made worse by the hateful political rhetoric spewed by the MSM and the far-Left. His former lawyer, Lyndon Evanko, described Hodgkinson was “a pushy little bastard” and said “He came across as a very irascible, angry little man, but not somebody I would expect to do something like this.” So what do you think now?
One has to question the out of control, vile and hateful, over the top rhetoric coming from the LEFT. Townhall questions whether this shooting of Republicans: Was the Gunman Influenced by ‘The Resistance’?
The gunman who was killed by cops after opening fire on a Republican congressional baseball practice on Wednesday, the president’s 71st birthday, was a Trump-hating Democrat and Bernie Sanders supporter with a long history of violence.
James T. Hodgkinson, 66, from Belleville, Illinois, was killed by Capitol Police after firing up to 100 rounds from an assault rifle at a baseball park in Alexandria, Virginia, leaving five injured including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise at 7am on Wednesday.
Scalise’s condition worsened throughout the afternoon and was deemed critical by hospital staff after he he was released from emergency surgery on his hip.
Two Capitol Police officers were shot as they bravely returned fire on Hodgkinson while the lawmakers scrambled across the field to safety. Congressional staffer Zachary Barth and lobbyist Matt Mika were also shot but both are expected to recover.
Hodgkinson was a staunch Sanders supporter and campaigned for the left-wing senator to get the Democratic nomination for president last year.
He ranted against President Trump on social media and had previously described The Rachel Maddow Show as his favorite thing on TV.
The married union tradesman threatened to ‘destroy’ the president, whom he called a ‘traitor’ on social media – but was not known to Secret Service.
THE CONTINUED DOWNWARD SPIRAL OF TIGER WOODS …
Tiger Woods was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence early Monday near his home in Jupiter, Florida, according to an online Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report. My how the mighty have fallen. The man who was once the greatest golfer in the world, has fallen even further. Tiger Woods is accused of driving under the influence. It is really starting to look like that Tiger will be making no come back. Between back injuries and an addictive personality that seems to have manifested itself in yet another way, it truly looks over for the once number 1 player in the world. The fall all began in November 2009.
Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday on a DUI charge in Jupiter, Florida, and spent nearly four hours in a county jail before he was released.
Woods, the 14-time major champion who ranks second with his 79 career victories on the PGA Tour, has not played for four months. He is out for the rest of the season while he recovers from his fourth back surgery.
Woods was arrested on suspicion of DUI about 3 a.m. Monday and taken to the Palm Beach County jail, Jupiter Police spokeswoman Kristin Rightler said. He was arrested on Military Trail, south of Indian Creek Parkway.
Jail records show that the 41-year-old was booked into Palm Beach County jail at 7:18 a.m. and released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m. The jail released a booking photo of Woods in a white T-shirt.
Although, Tiger Woods arrested on DUI charge in Florida, says alcohol ‘not involved’. Well, what exactly did you think he was going to do, admit it?
In a statement released Monday night, Woods said alcohol was not a factor in his arrest, which he said stemmed from an “unexpected reaction” to prescription medication.
“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Woods said in the statement. “I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.
“I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.
