Pakistani-born Imran Awan, The House Democrat IT staffer who was arrested and charged with bank fraud as he attempted to flee the United States, is still liquidating U.S. assets, according to Luke Rosiak, Investigative reporter for the Daily Caller.
Awan and at least four additional members of his family have been under criminal investigation since February. With charges of “stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” pending, most of the suspected staffers were fired months ago. However, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, (D-Fla.) kept Awan on staff until his arrest on July 24.
In addition to nearly $2 million in property sales, Awan and four of his relatives collected an estimated $4 million in taxpayer salaries collected since 2009, all while privy to full access of House members’ classified emails and confidential files. The story developed further when investigations revealed that the FBI recovered smashed hard drives from one of Awan’s properties and didn’t stop there.
“Every time we talk, I always say, well, I’m sure there’s going to be another development,” said Dana Loesch to guest, Luke Rosiak, on today’s “Dana,” “And, lo and behold, three days later there’s another development.”
“This is a very significant House scandal,” said Rosiak. “Multiple millions of dollars are involved here.”
