Trump Is Right: A ‘Pakistani Mystery Man’ Awan Has Documents Wasserman Schultz Didn’t Want Prosecutors To See

 

The story of Deb Schultz and her infamous laptop was making the rounds last September and B-ville was on it: Police Report Indicates Wasserman Schultz IT Aide Planted Computer For Investigators To Find

 “This was a call from the top, Comey and McCabe,” a well-placed FBI agent said. “Anyone else would have been held and with that cash she didn’t declare she could have been locked up. The agents at Dulles wanted to hold her but they were told to stand down.”

Alvi Awan was suspected of helping swindle $283,000 from banks and was busted carrying over $12,400 in undocumented cash when the FBI caught up with her at Dulles International Airport in March.

But incredibly Awan — the wife of Imran Awan, the IT specialist and con man employed by Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was arrested last week for bank fraud — was never detained or forced to stay in the United States.

What happened next adds to the mystery. On May 17, 2017, Wasserman Schultz used a hearing on the Capitol Police’s budget to threaten Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa with “consequences” if he didn’t return what she characterized as “a member’s equipment.”

Here Debbie threatens Capitol police Chief at hearing. Well, Debbie. Is it or is it Awan’s laptop? The relevant part starts at about 2:40.

 

A key, if under-covered, aspect of the “Pakistani mystery man” story is that Imran Awan, the Pakistani-born IT aide of former DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz, took a laptop with username RepDWS after he was banned from the House computer network for “unauthorized access to data,” and then left it in a phone booth with a letter to prosecutors.

Trump appears to have accurately identified a key issue with the “Pakistani mystery man” that comes straight from court documents.

  • Lawyers for Pakistani-born Imran Awan currently have a copy of the contents of a laptop with the username RepDWS
  • Wasserman Schultz wanted to block prosecutors from seeing what was on it
  • Imran’s lawyers have attempted to set up a situation where it is up to Imran whether prosecutors can see the laptop, claiming “attorney client privilege”
  • Other analysts say the laptop should be fair game for review

Snip….

Let that sink in. A Pakistani IT aide, who had just been fired by all his other employers for being a suspected hacker, left a laptop with the username RepDWS in a phone boothThe laptop was placed next to a letter to prosecutors. What it said is not publicly known. The cache of documents also included copies of Awan’s ID (which assured that police tied the laptop to a criminal suspect and seized it as evidence rather than returning it as lost property) and a note that said “attorney client privilege,” which put the laptop into legal limbo.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz “Absolute Wreck – Barely Able to Function” over Imran Awan Arrest

Earlier post: July, 2017   How many in Congress are being blackmailed by IT Imran Awan?

 

“I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point” with no arrests, said Pat Sowers, who has managed IT for several House offices for 12 years. “Something is rotten in Denmark.

“There’s no question about it: If I was accused of a tenth of what these guys are accused of, they’d take me out in handcuffs that same day, and I’d never work again,” he said.

A House IT employee who requested anonymity said tech workers who have taken over some of those offices found that computers in some — but not all — offices were “thin clients” that sent all data to an offsite server in violation of House policies. Additionally, staffers’ iPhones were all linked to a single non-government iTunes account.

The investigation goes far beyond the theft of millions of dollars. The employees could read all emails dozens of members of Congress sent and received, as well as access any files members and their staff stored. Court records show the brothers ran a side business that owed $100,000 to an Iranian fugitive who has been tied to Hezbollah, and their stepmother says they often send money to Pakistan.

Awans suspicious used car dealership – simply a money laundering business?

 

Paging Debbie Wasserman-Schwartz. We haven’t heard a peep in months. Interesting that the Awan story seemed to have faded away into the dust bin of history never to rise again. But then I see this little number. Well worth going over to the Daily Caller for the full read and where the money was probably going. There is a handy dandy chart that gives specific details of what they raked in. For those of us of a certain mind-set, no big surprise but I have to think that Deb must be thinking about “the woods and Chardonnay” too like her criminal pal Hillary. I could ask about Sessions, but as I posted back in October,

AG Sessions says he will not prosecute Clinton or any deep state criminals

The used car dealership known as CIA never seemed like an ordinary car dealership, with inventory, staff and expenses.

On its Facebook page, CIA’s “staff” were fake personalities such as “James Falls O’Brien,” whose photo was taken from a hairstyle model catalog, and “Jade Julia,” whose image came from a web page called “Beautiful Girls Wallpaper.”

If a customer showed up looking to buy a car from Cars International A, often referred to as CIA, Abid Awan — who was managing partner of the dealership while also earning $160,000 handling IT for House Democrats — would frequently simply go across the street to longstanding dealership called AAA Motors and get one.

“If AAA borrows a car to Cars International and they have a customer, it was simply take the car across the street and sell it, and then later on give the profit back or not,” Nasir Khattak, who ran the longstanding AAA dealership, testified in a lawsuit. “There was no documentation which is write every transaction that takes place. … If you go and try to dissect, you will not be able to make any sense out of them because there were many, dozens and dozens, of cars transferred between the two dealerships and between other people.”

Khattak did not explain why he would ruin his existing business to help the Awans. “All of those transactions was to support Cars International A from AAA Motors,” he testified. “That’s why I did not make any money from my dealership because my resources were supporting Cars International A.”

He said only Imran Awan knew what became of the money. “It was Imram, [Abid] Awan’s brother, who was running the business in full control,” he said.One person who was listed on bankruptcy documents as being owed money by the dealership, Rao Abbas, later appeared on the House payroll as an IT aide, even though his most recent job experience was working at McDonalds. Democrats have refused to explain why they hired him.

Imran Awan and his family members were congressional IT aides who investigators said made unauthorized access to the House Democratic Caucus server thousands of times. At the same time as they worked for and could read all the emails of members of the House intelligence, homeland security and foreign affairs committees, they also ran a car dealership that took money from a Hezbollah-linked fugitive and whose financial books were indecipherable and business patterns bizarre, according to testimony in court records.

While Imran and Abid Awan ran their car dealership in Falls Church, Va. in the early part of the decade, Drug Enforcement Agency officials a few miles away in Chantilly were learning that the Iranian-linked terrorist group frequently deployed used car dealerships in the US to launder money and fund terrorism, according to an explosive new Politico expose.

The money that disappeared between the Awans’ dealership, some $7 million in congressional pay, the equipment suspected of disappearing from Congress under their watch, and their other side businesses — all while they displayed few signs of wealth and frequently haggled in court over small amounts of money — raise questions about whether the Awans might have been laundering money or sending it to a third party.

Sessions must go!!

DWS IT Awan was running a secret server, banned when discoverd

If reports are true, Imran Awan’s wife has cut a deal and no doubt gotten immunity to come on back to the USA. Husband Imran leaving the laptop with his personal info appears to be begging for a deal as well. Fox is the only one covering this, but I betcha 

Now-indicted former congressional IT aide Imran Awan allegedly routed data from numerous House Democrats to a secret server. Police grew suspicious and requested a copy of the server early this year, but they were provided with an elaborate falsified image designed to hide the massive violations. The falsified image is what ultimately triggered their ban from the House network Feb. 2, according to a senior House official with direct knowledge of the investigation.

Data was also backed up to Dropbox in huge quantities, the official said. Congressional offices are prohibited from using Dropbox, so an unofficial account was used, meaning Awan could have still had access to the data even though he was banned from the congressional network.

A good review of what we can figure is going on.

Why did McConnell refuse to recess the Senate this month?

If you thought that the Senate was in recess you would be mistaken. There sure is no love lost between McConnell and Trump but is McConnell really that nasty and would impede the function of government and the DOJ specifically? Or is he protecting his buds in Congress? Hamstringing the DOJ with not moving forward a vote on Trump’s nominees which only requires a simple majority for approval. How about our buddy Sessions who seems more concerned with MS-13 gangs and the cities who by the way are blocking him every step. Why not bear down on all the scandals? Let’s look at Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as an example. Here goes how this could have worked:

This sounds like a plan: Opinion: Trump could use recess appointments to fill cabinet positions

KTAR.comJul 29, 2017.
..recess appointments would be the perfect way for Trump to stick it to the sellouts in the Senate who have stopped his agenda in its tracks at every opportunity. Well so much for that.

….Said Caddell, “Look at what the Senate did. It didn’t even recess so he could appoint recess appointments. That’s what the Democrats would have done. All these positions he can’t move through the Senate, he could have appointed them the day they recessed. But they made sure he couldn’t. They stayed in session, technically.” From Breitbart: Caddell – Republican Senate didn’t recess Trump so he could make recess appointments

So how does this impact Debbie? Here is what is going on at the DOJ with her.

….Well, here’s a peculiar thing about the Justice Department’s indictment of Imran Awan and Hina Alvi, the alleged fraudster couple who doubled as IT wizzes for Debbie Wasserman Schultz and many other congressional Democrats: There’s not a word in it about flight to Pakistan. The indictment undertakes to describe in detail four counts of bank-fraud conspiracy, false statements on credit applications, and unlawful monetary transactions, yet leaves out the most damning evidence of guilt.

By the way, the U.S. attorney’s office is currently led by Channing D. Phillips, an Obama holdover who was never confirmed. Still awaiting Senate confirmation is Jessie Liu, nominated by President Trump in June. Meanwhile, Steven Wasserman, Representative Wasserman Schultz’s brother, has been an assistant U.S. attorney in the office for many years.

….I have seen no indication that he has any formal role in the case, notwithstanding some cyberspace speculation to the contrary. What is clear, however, is that the office is low-keying the Awan prosecution.It is common Justice Department practice, in pleading a conspiracy indictment, to allege that the scheme began “on or about” its starting date and continued “up to and including the date of the filing of this indictment.”

Strictly speaking, a conspiracy ends when the crime that is its objective has been completed. But there is no requirement that a specific end date be set forth in the indictment. Therefore, prosecutors go as long as they can — i.e., right up to the date the grand jury voted to indict — to give themselves the widest berth possible to argue that evidence damaging to the defense is relevant and admissible. But that is not what happened in the Awan indictment.

The Justice Department alleges that the conspiracy took place “from on or about December 12, 2016 through on or about February 27, 2017.” February 27 was six days before Alvi fled and five months before Awan was arrested trying to leave the country. This makes no sense. Indeed, it does not even make sense in the context of the narrow scheme prosecutors have charged: Although the indictment says the conspiracy ended on February 27, it alleges a relevant $83,000 interbank transfer occurred on February 28 (see indictment, paragraphs 8 and 22). That is, prosecutors assert that a money transfer supposedly in furtherance of the conspiracy happened a day after the conspiracy was already over.

The National Review goes on to tell us more of the unexplainables about the charging…well worth the read. It looks like the fix is in……McConnell- what’s his role? Why not fill all of these vacancies in the DOJ among others?

By the way, the U.S. Attorney for Vermont remains unfilled. This is the Attorney that is handling Bernie Sanders Wife’s little misadventure with Burlington College.Thus an old Obama holdover is in place.

Wasserman Schultz Says Laptop She Sought To Keep From Police Was Awan’s, Not Hers

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz never actually saw the computer she fought to block the Capitol Police from examining as evidence in a criminal case against her IT aide by saying it was hers, she told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel Thursday.

She threatened “consequences” on May 18  for the chief of the Capitol Police unless the laptop was returned — despite police contending it was needed to help determine whether a staffer may have violated the House’s cybersecurity.

See earlier post:

Debbie Wasserman Schultz threaten’s Police Chief over hacking scandal, wants evidence returned to her

Back to the original post:

What is amazing is that the FBI did stop Imran Awan at least at the airport. Someone apparently didn’t get Comey’s message to let the Awan clan get out-of-town. The rest of the family was permitted to leave by apparently no less than okayed by Comey. Just more proof that the swamp includes the FBI and Comey in particular:

Debbie threatening Capitol Police

Alvi Awan was suspected of helping swindle $283,000 from banks and was busted carrying over $12,400 in undocumented cash when the FBI caught up with her at Dulles International Airport in March.

But incredibly Awan — the wife of Imran Awan, the IT specialist and con man employed by Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was arrested last week for bank fraud — was never detained or forced to stay in the United States. Her arrest in fact was blocked by then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI sources said.

So federal agents and Capitol Police watched as the former Democratic congressional aide and suspected bank fraudster stepped onto Qatar Air1ines Flight 708 to Doha, Qatar, on her way to Lahore, Pakistan with her three daughters, bulging luggage and $12,400 in undocumented cash — a federal crime in itself. Awan had essentially been given a license to disappear from the clutches of US law enforcement, never likely to return to the United States. She was in the wind, courtesy of the FBI.

 “This was a call from the top, Comey and McCabe,” a well-placed FBI agent said. “Anyone else would have been held and with that cash she didn’t declare she could have been locked up. The agents at Dulles wanted to hold her but they were told to stand down.”

Comey has since been fired and McCabe was Acting FBI Director until the new FBI director was recently sworn in.

As a sidebar, Alvi Awan would also have served as a key witness in the emerging case building against Wasserman Schultz, the DNC, and what role Hillary Clinton played into the emerging labyrinth of Awan-related security breaches.

Imran Awan Had Access to Every member of Congress — sold secrets to Foreign Agents!

 

Looks like the noose is tightening around Schultz…better yet, her henchmen just might go down as well. But then again, the Swamp goons are alive and well. How careless of both Congress and Clinton. But to get justice, we have to overcome:

Imran Awan worked for Debbie Wasserman Schultz for thirteen years since she came into office in 2004 as a Florida representative. She only fired him this past week and would have kept paying her “IT expert” even when he was living in Pakistan. As an aside,

Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives in February.

Most of the House Members fired the Awans subsequently.
Only Debbie Wasserman Schultz kept Imran Awan on the pay roll up to the day he got arrest for bank fraud after trying to flee the country.

The rest of the family fled to Pakistan and brought with them tens of thousands of tax-payer money with them.

Democrats were willing or unwillingly compromised by the Awans and sensitive information leaked to foreign Enemies

On Monday Judge Napolitano dropped this bomb on the Imran Awan investigation.
Judge Nap says Awan was selling US secrets to foreign agents.

Judge Napolitano: He was arrested for some financial crime. That’s the tip of the iceberg. The real crime against him was that he had contact, he had access to emails of every member of Congress and he sold what he found in there. What did he sell and to whom did he sell it. That’s what the FBI wants to know. This may be a very, very serious national security investigation.

I.T. Awan lawyers up with Clinton’s lawyer, Debbie W. Swartz’s brother U.S. Attorney overseeing investigation

The U.S. attorney who’s going to be overseeing the federal criminal fraud investigation into Pakistan-born Imran Awan, the Muslim IT spy hired by Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2005 to serve her congressional colleagues’ offices, is none other than — Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s brother.More at Pamela Geller

Chris Gowen, Imran Awan’s lawyer, is a long-time campaigner for former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a member of an attorney team that brought a fraudulent lawsuit against energy giant Chevron.

Politico reported the criminal probe concerned “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network.”

Gowen is a founding partner of Gowen, Rhoades, Winograd and Silva law firm, with offices in Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, Penn.Conservative Review — which first reported Gowen’s extensive Clinton connections Wednesday — said they also include work for the Clinton Foundation and its Clinton Global Initiative and the Clinton Health Access Initiative.

His official bio on the firm’s web site notes that he “left the Public Defender’s office to work for former President William Jefferson Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton. Chris was a fact checker for President Clinton’s memoir, My Life.”

“He also served as a traveling aid for President Clinton’s national and international trips. Chris finished his tenure with the Clintons by directing the advance operations for then-Senator Hillary Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign.”

Gowen described Awan’s arrest as “clearly a right-wing media-driven prosecution by a United States Attorney’s Office that wants to prosecute people for working while Muslim.”
