This story continues to fly right under the radar, but we’re not going to ignore it. This needs to be out there for all to see.
First, a quick recap.
Imran Awan is Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s former IT staffer who was arrested for bank fraud after attempting to flee the country. Before his attempted escape, the FBI raided his home and found a ton of smashed hard drives. Oh. And he has a bunch of weird financial dealings. He’s suspected of selling US secrets to foreign agents and was indicted on four counts “including bank fraud and making false statements.”
According to a bombshell report from the Daily Caller, 44 Democrats exempted Pakistani IT aides from background checks. These are the same IT aides who “later allegedly made ‘unauthorized access’ to congressional data.”
And now, there’s this. Word has it the father of Debbie’s sketchy IT aide transferred data to the Pakistani government.
FAISALABAD, Pakistan — The father of Imran Awan — an IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who investigators concluded made “unauthorized access” to House servers — transferred a USB drive to a Pakistani senator and former head of a Pakistani intelligence agency, the father’s ex-business partner, Rashid Minhas, alleged.
Minhas told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Imran Awan’s father, Haji Ashraf Awan, was giving data to Pakistani official Rehman Malik, and that Imran bragged he had the power to “change the U.S. president.”
Asked for how he knew this, he said that on one occasion in 2008 when a “USB [was] given to Rehman Malik by Imran’s father, my brother Abdul Razzaq was with his father.”
“After Imran’s father deliver (sic) USB to Rehman Malik, four Pakistani [government intelligence] agents were with his father 24-hour on duty to protect him,” he said. Minhas did not say what was on the USB.
I know, I know. We obviously need further confirmation, and the Daily Caller tried to get us just that.
TheDCNF traveled to Pakistan for this story and interviewed numerous residents who interacted with Imran, and they confirmed that he does travel that country with a contingent of armed Pakistani government officials and routinely brags about mysterious political power.
Minhas said “Imran Awan said to me directly these words: ‘See how I control White House on my fingertip…’ He say he can fire the prime minister or change the U.S. president,” Minhas said. “Why the claiming big stuff, I [didn’t] understand ’till now.”
And to think. This guy was on the congressional payroll. Sorry, I meant almost his ENTIRE FAMILY was on the congressional payroll.
Nearly Imran’s entire immediate family was on the House payroll working as IT aides to one-fifth of House Democrats, and he began working for the House in 2004.

Because there are porn stars to listen to and golden shower tapes to find. DUH.
There’s nothing to see here. Nope. Nothing at all. MSM will continue to ignore this, so you probably should too. It’s probably nothing.
