LEFTY RAT CAUGHT TRYING TO FLEE THE SHIP ... THIS IS THE WATERGATE STORY THE LIBERAL MSM REFUSES TO COVER!!!
Imran Awan, a Wasserman Schultz aide arrested at Dulles International Airport trying to leave the country. Awan is 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. But that did not stop him from trying. 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. As reported at Legal Insurrection, Imran Awan also under investigation for breaching House IT systems and stealing equipment.
Much more at The Daily Caller.
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
Yasmin Seweid, Woman Accused Of Making Up Story Of Anti-Muslim Harassment On Subway … Update: Arrested for Filing a False Police Report
HMM, DO THE DEMOCRATS AND MSM CARE ABOUT THIS FAKE NEWS ….
18 year old Yasmin Seweid, the woman who claimed she was a victim of a hate crime and anti-Muslim harassment appears to have made up the entire story. Oh wait MSM and Democrats, would that be fake news? The Muslim student who said she was harassed on the subway by drunken, hate-spewing white men shouting “Donald Trump!” It was all a lie. She made the story up because she broke curfew. She was charged with filing a false police report and obstructing governmental administration. So we are presented once again with another phony “Islamophobic” hate crime that the MSM was all too willing to embrace and jump on. Maybe the hate crime is that she accused Christians of assault?
Police on Wednesday said a New Hyde Park teen made up a story about being verbally attacked on a New York City subway train because she is Muslim.
Yasmin Seweid, 18, was brought in for questioning by police around 2:30 p.m., sources told CBS2. She was charged with filing a false police report and obstructing governmental administration, sources said.
Seweid claimed that she was verbally assaulted by a group of three men on the subway around 10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1. She told CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco she got on the No. 6 Train at 23rd Street and Park Avenue after leaving an event at Baruch College.
“I heard them talk, but I had my headphones in, I wasn’t really listening, I had a long day. And they came closer and I distinctly heard them saying, ‘Donald Trump,’” she said.
“They were surrounding me from behind and they were like, ‘Oh look, it’s an f-ing terrorist,’” she said. “I didn’t answer. They pulled my strap of the bag and it ripped, and that’s when I turned around and I was really polite and I was like, ‘can you please leave me alone?’ and everyone was looking, no one said a thing, everyone just looked away.”
Seweid said no one stopped the men, not even when she claimed they tried to tear off her hijab.
“They kept saying, ‘You don’t belong here, get out of this country, go back to your country,’ and finally they came really close and they were like, ‘Take that rag off your head,’” she said.
Seweid also criticized President-elect Donald Trump personally.
Since Donald Trump’s election night victory and at the direction of Hillary Clinton campaign operatives, social media users have been scolded and warned over the scourge of “fake news” from supposedly respected journalistic outlets, on the web and on network television. Clinton herself, just last week, even blamed her election loss partly on the dangerous spread of fake news.
So enter the curious case of Yasmin Seweid, the 18 year old New York City college student whose story of being harassed and assaulted by three Donald Trump supporters on a line 6 subway train went viral. This came on the heels of reports — many exaggerated — a so-called “surge” in Trump-fueled, hate-filled activity.
Socialist Bernie Sanders Who Railed Against the Democrat Party Establishement Now Says, ‘This is Not the Time for a Protest Vote’
BERNIE SANDERS TURNS OUT TO BY A LYING, IN THE TANK ESTABLISHMENT FRAUD AFTER ALL …
Sorry millennials and those that backed Bernie Sanders because you thought he was more than just a political candidate and in fact was a political movement, you have been “BERNED”. What a joke and a fraud. The man who ran as a self-proclaimed socialist in the 2016 Democrat primary against Hillary Clinton and a an alternative and protest vote against Hillary and the establishment now says … “This is not the time for a protest vote, in terms of a presidential campaign,” and don’t vote for Libertarian Gary Johnson or for the Green Party’s Jill Stein. FRAUD!!! Its nice to see that the socialist has gotten in line behind the Democrat party establishment. I can say that I agree with pretty much nothing, but I could respect him because I thought he believed in what he was saying. Guess what, the respect is gone too because he is a sell out. However, there is already a large group of Bernie voters who will never vote for Hillary.
Remember when Sanders actually stood for something and was against the establishment?
Anyone driving into Bernie Sanders’s rally here, anyone with a radio tuned to ABC News, could hear the low-key voice of Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson. In 60-second radio spots, the former governor of New Mexico introduces himself as a pragmatist who, like most voters, resented a presidential choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
“Our economic challenges will be conquered not by force, but by cooperation and mutual respect,” Johnson says in one of the ads. “For the independent majority of Americans who feel as I do, I say: Why wait one more day?”
At the rally itself, Sanders continued making the pitch he’s been honing since he returned to the campaign trail: This isn’t a year to vote third party. Mentioning Clinton’s name sparingly, Sanders told several hundred voters — many still wearing gear from the Democratic primary — that their votes could stop the election of a Republican “who thinks climate change is a hoax.”
Sanders, who was the most prominent independent in American politics even before his run, is gradually embracing a role as a third-party critic, a spoiler of the spoilers. As Democrats contemplate ways to tamp down a protest vote for Johnson, or for the Green Party’s Jill Stein, Sanders is already arguing that anyone who voted for him would set the movement back by voting against Clinton. In an interview after the rally — the first in a three-state weekend tour for Democratic candidates — Sanders said that Democrats and the media need to focus on Clinton’s actual policies more than they have been, in a campaign dominated by back-and-forths about Trump’s gaffes.
“This is not the time for a protest vote, in terms of a presidential campaign,” Sanders said.
I could not disagree more … this is exactly the time and place for a protest vote. It is time to vote for anyone who is not the establishment which also means it is time to vote for a non-politician.
I GUESS THIS IS MORE OF HILLARY CLINTON BEING FOR THE LITTLE GUY … REPEATEDLY OVERCHARGING DONORS WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT.
The Observer is reporting that the Hillary Clinton campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website. According to the report, her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100. And why is that? Because as a fraud expert explains, “We don’t investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100.” They went on to say, “the Clinton campaign knows this, that’s why we don’t see any charges over the $100 amount, they’ll stop the charges just below $100.” As BPR opines, Apparently donating to Hillary’s campaign with a credit card is, “the gift that’ll keep on giving, and giving, and giving, even without your consent!”
Hillary Clinton’s campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, multiple sources tell the Observer.
The overcharges are occurring so often that the fraud department at one of the nation’s biggest banks receives up to 100 phone calls a day from Clinton’s small donors asking for refunds for unauthorized charges to their bankcards made by Clinton’s campaign. One elderly Clinton donor, who has been a victim of this fraud scheme, has filed a complaint with her state’s attorney general and a representative from the office told her that they had forwarded her case to the Federal Election Commission.
“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of job security, from the Wells Fargo fraud department told the Observer. The source claims that the Clinton campaign has been pulling this stunt since Spring of this year. The Hillary for America campaign will overcharge small donors by repeatedly charging small amounts such as $20 to the bankcards of donors who made a one-time donation. However, the Clinton campaign strategically doesn’t overcharge these donors $100 or more because the bank would then be obligated to investigate the fraud.
“We don’t investigate fraudulent charges unless they are over $100,” the fraud specialist explained. “The Clinton campaign knows this, that’s why we don’t see any charges over the $100 amount, they’ll stop the charges just below $100. We’ll see her campaign overcharge donors by $20, $40 or $60 but never more than $100.” The source, who has worked for Wells Fargo for over 10 years, said that the total amount they refund customers on a daily basis who have been overcharged by Clinton’s campaign “varies” but the bank usually issues refunds that total between $700 and $1200 per day.
Don’t the Little People who support Hillary understand this is how the pay for play system works with Hillary and the Clinton Foundation/Campaign?
AMERICA, WAKE THE HELL UP TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED AROUND YOU FOR THE PAST 8 YEARS … OBAMACARE IS IMPLODING AND RATE FEES GOING UP BIG TIME … DO YOU WANT ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF THIS UNAFFORDABLE CRAP!!!
As reported at The Politico, Obamacare sticker shock hits key Senate races and could affect the outcome of many political races in the Senate and House. However, the dirty little secret is that massive Obamacare rate increases on insureds could also swing the presidential vote. Welcome to the reality of Obamacare and Barack Obama’s “UNAFFORDABLE” healthcare act that was one of the greatest frauds ever perpetrated on We the People. The rate increases are escalating out of control and insurance companies are leaving Obamacare as fast as they can.
As insurers push large premium increases for 2017 Obamacare plans, some of the steepest hikes have been requested by insurers in crucial swing states that could determine control of the Senate.
In nine of 11 states with competitive Senate races, at least one insurer seeks to hike rates for Obamacare customers by at least 30 percent next year:Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield in Pennsylvania wants to jack up average premiums by more than 40 percent. In Wisconsin, three insurers have asked for rate hikes of more than 30 percent. In New Hampshire, two of the five carriers want to sell plans with rate increase above 30 percent.
The potential sticker shock — coupled with the likelihood many consumers will have fewer choices next year after major insurers scale back their exchange participation — creates a potential political opening for Republican candidates, especially since the next Obamacare enrollment season starts one week before Election Day.
“People who are feeling it in their pocketbooks are going to be very unhappy about [rate hikes],” said Brian Walsh, a former communications director for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. “You would expect to see this will be part of the campaign messaging for House and Senate Republicans. … If it hasn’t started, it will be coming.”
While Donald Trump often cites eye-popping rate hikes as proof the health care law is a “disaster,” rate hikes haven’t yet emerged as a major campaign issue in most Senate races — although several Republicans said they plan to spotlight the issue in the fall.
In Indiana, where Indianapolis-based Insurance giant Anthem wants to raise Obamacare premiums by as much as 36 percent, Rep. Todd Young, the Republican candidate for Indiana’s open seat, is already making the rate hikes an issue against former Sen. Evan Bayh his Democratic challenger. Bayh voted for Obamacare but didn’t run for reelection in 2010.
But it is not just battleground states, its all states that these ridiculous double digit insurance rate increases are coming with is the underlying dirty little secret of the 2016 elections. Americans awake to the real truth of Obamacare, its not affordable and not sustainable. Wow, who was saying that 7 years ago?
- Obamacare users in New York brace for double-digit 2017 premium hikes.
- California Obamacare rates to rise 13% in 2017, more than three times the increase of last two years.
- Get Ready for Huge Obamacare Premium Hikes in 2017.
- Illinois Obamacare rates could soar as state submits insurance premium increases to feds.
- Price increases for Obamacare depend on where you live, mostly up big.
In Vermont, the proposed 2017 premium increase for the average silver plan that covers a 50-year-old, nonsmoking male is a whopping 44 percent, going up to $685 per month, Avalere said.
The proposed price hike for a similar man and plan in Oregon, however, is 22 percent, up to $540 per month, Avalere said.
Other double-digit price hikes for that kind of plan are proposed in Virginia (19 percent), Maine (18 percent) and Maryland (18 percent).
