DEMOCRATS — Finding their hands in a new scandal with potential terrorist ties, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is struggling to bury a series of crimes committed by Imran Awan.
In a shocking new discovery, federal authorities and state police in Washington D.C seized Imran Awan, an IT Staffer under former Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Awan was propped up on charges of bank fraud — which he since maintained he did not commit.
Awan’s bank fraud crime broke the scope of just the domestic economy — leaving an offshore paper trail of roughly $283,000 to over an overseas beneficiary in Pakistan. The Daily Caller reported that the money was transferred over to Pakistan through the Congressional Federal Credit Union.
But the depth of the scandal doesn’t end there. Recent bombshells revealed a potential connection between Awan’s attorney and former President Bill Clinton — yet another Democratic Party figurehead with scandals staining his reputation. Chris Gowen, Awan’s defense counsel, has a bio online that traces to President Clinton and his wife:
Gowen’s past includes several stints in the Clinton machine’s orbit. He began his legal life as a public defender but left that job for the Bill Clinton White House. At the time, he also worked for then-Senator Hillary Clinton. Years later, he jumped on board Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, directing advance operations there, according to his biography from his law firm, Gowen Rhoades Winograd & Silva, PLLC. In another bio page, Gowen states he has consulted with former Democratic presidential contenders John Kerry and John Edwards.
Another biography, from American University, says Gowen worked with several controversial Clinton projects, including The Clinton Global Initiative, The Clinton Foundation, and The Clinton Health Access Initiative.
His connections to the President are fairly extensive, and multiple articles explore the depth of these ties. Serving as a travel aide to President Clinton is just the beginning.
Further damning is the knowledge that Awan had attempted to flee the country. Where was he going? Pakistan! It is known that his pending bank fraud charges will prevent him from stepping outside of U.S. borders until the District Court of Washington D.C has decided on moving forward with his indictments.
The wire transfer included hundreds of thousands of dollars, creating a defraud attempt of the aforementioned Congressional Federal Credit Union:
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.
Speculation began from numerous journalists across the swath of media outlets covering the breaking story that the DNC has been using the Trump-Russia narrative (referred to as “Russiagate”) to distract from this scandal — unfortunately for them the news is out there. The case of the “Awan Brothers” has become a boiling point in national publicity for DNC leadership.
What’s worse? Apart from the likely commission of bank fraud — illegally sending U.S. funds abroad — the Awan Brothers’ case even contains a potential connection to terrorism!
The jaw-dropping client list beefed up by the Awan Brothers definitely incriminates a potential for some hot button terrorist ties, as well:
All three of the Pakistani brothers had been employed by Democrats. The offices that employed them included HPSCI minority members Speier, Carson and Joaquín Castro. Congressman Castro, who also sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, utilized the services of Jamal Moiz Awan. Speier and Carson’s offices utilized Imran Awan.
Abid A. Awan was employed by Lois Frankel and Ted Lieu: members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. Also on the committee is Castro. As is Robin Kelly whose office employed Jamal Awan. Lieu also sits on the subcommittees on National Security and Information Technology of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Tammy Duckworth’s office had also employed Abid. Before Duckworth successfully played on the sympathy of voters to become Senator Tammy Duckworth, she had been on the Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces of the Armed Services Committee.
Gwen Graham, who had also been on the Armed Services Committee and on the Tactical Air and Land Forces subcommittee, had employed Jamal Awan. Jamal was also employed by Cedric Richmond’s office. Richmond sits on the Committee on Homeland Security and on its Terrorism and Cybersecurity subcommittee. He is a ranking member of the latter subcommittee. Also employing Jamal was Mark Takano of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
Imran had worked for the office of John Sarbanes who sits on the House Energy and Commerce Committee that oversees, among other things, the nuclear industry. Other members of the Committee employing the brothers included Yvette Clarke, who also sits on the Bipartisan Encryption Working Group, Diana DeGette, Dave Loebsack and Tony Cardenas.
The pattern of Pakistani involvement is particularly alarming, as well as the abstract overlapping of significant roles in the realm of U.S. security that makes the case so dangerous for America. A transcript is available on Real Clear Politics depicting the suspicion behind the entirety of the case.
So while the Mainstream Media continues to report “Russiagate” and in the meddling of Russian intelligence and government officials in U.S. political affairs, the DNC has been harboring terrorist collaborators and conspiring as an institution to pay off their connections.
