Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DWS) has been caught, yet again.
By Taylor Foland
Thirty-seven-year-old Imran Awan was a former IT staffer for the House of Representatives, along with several other of his family members. Imran was arrested on July 25, 2017 at Dulles International Airport for bank fraud while attempting to flee the country for Pakistan. Back in February, there was an investigation opened into several people related to Imran who were also IT staffers in the House of Representatives. The people included in that investigation were: Imran himself, his brothers Amid and Jamal, his wife, and a family friend. Imran and people connected to him worked for nearly thirty Congressmen and women, providing technical support for them.
Imran virtually had access to everything that was going on within the House of Representatives, including the House Intelligence Committee. He had access to the House Intelligence Committee’s server, as well as the House Foreign Affairs Committee’s server, and had access to several computer mainframes with classified intelligence on them. Wasserman Schultz kept Imran on payroll after everyone else had already fired him (and his family). This is a scandal that could be connected to past scandals, including the DNC hacking. The Democratic National Convention, and the Democratic National Committee were unprotected when it came to their IT networks. You would have thought that the DNC would have had rigorous security, but they didn’t. Debbie Wasserman obviously was fired from her position as Chairwoman of the DNC.
Could Imran be connected to the Clinton email scandal? In some way?
This is just the tip of the iceberg, this strange and disturbing story has more beneath its surface. Representative Ron DeSantis (Florida’s Sixth Congressional District) is calling for the Attorney General to investigate Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Carla Spalding is running against Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and is calling for her resignation.
Wasserman-Schultz put up a pretty pathetic defense, to say the absolute least. She claimed that anti-Muslim sentiment was why Imran was being targeted, and that it was the “right thing” to keep him on payroll for a different position. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was trying to shift everything back to identity politics, like most Democrats do when confronted with reality, and facts.
The Democratic Party operates on the insanity of identity politics. However, by March, this year most Democrats had fired these four IT staffers, with the exception being Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office with Imran Awan! So, for Debbie Wasserman Schultz to act like such a racial justice warrior is just beyond the pale really, it’s quite absurd. This story should be covered more, but the mainstream media, as usual, is completely one-sided and extremely biased. Imran Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi was one of those fired IT consultants, after being fired she left the country in March, and abruptly took her children out of school.
According to Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley, the amount of pay that these contractors received was more than three times the normal rate for the same positions. It’s estimated by the Chairman that these people collected over four million dollars over the last thirteen years. Why so much money?
Imran’s attorney, Christopher Gowan released a statement which blames “a frenzy of anti-Muslim bigotry” and “extremist right-wing bloggers” for the firings of the IT consultants, including Imran. Except, there is a contradiction is that statement, because Debbie Wasserman Schultz was the last Democrat to keep Imran on her payroll, under a different duty. All other Democrats had already fired the others. DWS decided to keep Imran on-board after everyone else had fired his family, and the family friend.
According to an official FBI affidavit, Imran had wired over $283,000 to Pakistan, $165,000 of that sum of money being wired from a faulty home-equity loan. Imran was arrested for bank fraud, upon his arrest, only then did DWS fire him. This is the definition of “the swamp”. A story made complete with bank fraud, and corrupt officials on Capitol Hill covering for people. The only reasonable explanation that comes to mind of why Wasserman Schultz would do this is that there was some kind of secret deal between her and Imran, perhaps related to the DNC.
Why else would she have kept him on for so long, and then throw him under the bus when he was arrested?
The mainstream media’s coverage of this story has dwindled in recent days. (Not surprising.) As usual, the liberal press sides with the democratic view: that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was protecting an innocent IT staffer, from religious discrimination, and “Muslim bashing.” Instead of reporting on any alleged corruption, they slant the views in a way that makes it seem like Conservatives are the ones in the wrong. It’s the playbook the Democrats have used every single time.
The New York Times (failing fake news) came out with a July 28 article with a clear liberal bias: “conservative news outlets have built a case against Imran Awan, his wife, two brothers and a friend, piece by piece.” No coverage on why she kept him on so long though? Why would she have kept him on payroll by then switching his job title? This story has ‘cover-up’ written all over it.
The double standard is glaring, and it is the last thing the mainstream media wants to talk about. So, this story will continue to grow, all the way until the Midterms. This is the reason why Congress has below 20% approval. This Imran, was being paid by the government to cover in some way for DWS. There needs to be a thorough investigation conducted into this situation.
Let’s not hold our breath on that one though! We are still waiting for Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Hillary, Samantha Power, Loretta Lynch, and James Comey to be investigated, and held accountable. We’re still waiting.
With all this being said, the real losers here are the people in District 23 of Florida. They have someone in the House of Representatives who is using their prestige, their office, and their power to intimidate and threaten people, it’s disgraceful.
Why is the House Ethics Committee not throwing the book at DWS? After the violation of security policies, why did DWS allow Imran Awan to stay on her office’s payroll? The Washington Post, the New York Times, and other liberal outlets have reported so voraciously on Russia, but barely covered this.
It is looking more and more unlikely that DWS will answer any questions on this subject. It is time to DRAIN THE SWAMP. There is more to this story, don’t let it go.
