BREAKING: Former Wasserman-Schultz IT Staffer Imran Awan Arrested at Airport While Trying to Flee U.S.

Chad Pergram of Fox News tweeted a breaking report on Dem Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Pakistani IT staffer Imran Awan who was arrested at Dulles airport while trying to flee the United States.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported the FBI seized smashed hardrives belonging to Imran Awan.

Is justice finally being served to the DNC? In an exclusive report by the Daily Caller reveals “FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator.“

Daily Caller reports:

Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, the individual told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

A high-level congressional source, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.

Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.

Awan’s younger brothers, Abid and Jamal, his wife, Hina Alvi, and Rao Abbas, Imran’s best friend, are also under investigation. There have been no arrests in the case.

There is also evidence of financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan, where Imran spends significant portions of the year.

The Gateway Pundit has closely reported the story of the Awan brothers from the beginning. Below is all you need to know about who they are and what they were doing in Congress.

In an interesting turn of events, it appears that the Russians may have not been behind the hacks into the American political system after all. Meet the three men who are now the center of attention for the hacks: Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan.

The Daily Caller News Foundation is reporting that three brothers who managed office IT for government officials have been relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.

From The Daily Caller:

Brothers Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues, information and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.

The Daily Caller goes on to state that one of the possible computer systems that may have been hacked in connection to these three brothers belongs to Florida Democrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Schultz served as the chairman for the DNC when the now infamous DNC hacks took place during the 2016 presidential campaign. Many Democrats and media outlets reported for months, with little evidence, that the Russians were behind the hacks in a deliberate attempt to help President Trump win the election.
