Former Wasserman Schultz Aide Accused Of Bank Fraud

In May Wasserman Schultz told US Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa to'expect consequences if he did not promptly return a laptop that was part of the investigation

- The arrest of a now-former IT aide to Rep.

Wasserman Schultz was not pleased. "No charges, evidence or findings from the investigation have been formally shared with our office, so we can not comment on them", Fox News quoted Damron as saying.

The group of IT staffers were also being suspected by authorities of putting sensitive House information on the "cloud" and possibly exposing it to others.

The feds nabbed Imran Awan at Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C.as he prepared to board a flight to Lahore, Pakistan, reported Politico.

The credit union does not provide loans to home that are used for rental income, because they are a "riskier" forms of collateral, according to court documents. It did not appear to go in depth into the other matters investigators have been looking into.

Tim Canova, the liberal law professor who challenged Wasserman Schultz in a 2016 Democratic primary and has filed to run against her again in 2018, noted the arrest of Imran Awan in a fundraising letter sent Tuesday night. "It is their equipment and it is supposed to be returned".

Fox News first reported last week that arrests were coming in the case. Many of his relatives, who have also worked for House members, have also been a part of that investigation.

Awan's convoluted schemes have been going on since 2005 when he was first hired by DWS.

Agents found smashed hard drives at his residence, and Wasserman Schultz previously had a heated exchange with the Capitol police chief when she refused to turn over resources belonging to Awan.

Who is this guy?

Awan's attorney, Chris Gowen, says his client was cleared to travel and even went as far as to alert the House that he planned on traveling to Pakistan to see family.

The investigation is ongoing and more arrests are likely. Who is Imran Awan?

A former IT staffer for Rep.

Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) has fired an IT staffer after he was arrested on a bank fraud charge at Dulles Airport in Virginia, where he was attempting to fly to Pakistan.

Most lawmakers cut ties with Awan and his family after the criminal investigation came to light in early February.

But months after Awan was sacked by everyone else, Wasserman Schultz grilled Capitol Police Chief Matthew Verderosa in May over why computer equipment was confiscated from her office as part of the investigation into Awan even though she was not under investigation.

Awan's wife, Hina Alvi, briefly worked for Wasserman Schultz this year and recently left for Pakistan, although Federal Bureau of Investigation agents also approached her as she awaited her flight at Dulles.
