Imran Awan Hires High Powered DC Attorney Closely Linked to Clinton Crime Family
Three brothers who managed office IT for government officials were relieved of their duties in February on suspicion that they accessed specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.
Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives in February.
Imran Awan was arrested on Monday night trying to flee the country with $12,000 of cash on him.
The brothers accessed computers unauthorized. They were getting foreign information. The three brothers were making $161,000, $165,000, and $160,000.
One of the brothers has a criminal background.
According to reports earlier this week Imran Awan was still employed by Wasserman Schultz after his arrest on Monday night.

Imran hired Chris Gowan of Gowen, Rhoades, Winograd & Silva, PLLC to represent him this week.
Gowen is a high powered attorney linked to the Clintons and Clinton Foundation.
Despite having declared bankruptcy, the top suspect in the Democrat’s House hacking scandal, Imran Awan, has somehow acquired the services of one of the top power attorneys in Washington.
And not just any power attorney, but one deeply connected to the Clintons.
According to the biography of Chris Gowen on the website of the law firm of Gowen, Rhoades, Winograd & Silva, PLLC, he has:
- Worked in the White House for former President Bill Clinton (for five years) as a traveling aid (sic) on national and international trips
- Worked for Senator Hillary Clinton
- Worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign by directing advance operations
- And was a fact checker for President Clinton’s memoir, “My Life”
According to his biography at American University, where Gowen is an adjunct professor of law, he “worked on several different initiatives with former President Clinton including”:
- The Clinton Foundation
- The Clinton Global Initiative
- The Clinton Health Access Initiative
- The Clinton Library
Gowen’s client was arrested by federal agents Tuesday at Dulles Airport in Virginia as he tried to flee the country for his native Pakistan.
Awan was then arraigned in federal court in Washington and pleaded not guilty to one count of bank fraud following allegations he tried to defraud the Congressional Federal Credit Union. According to an affidavit obtained by the Daily Caller, Awan had wired “$283,000.00, to two individuals in Faisalabad, Pakistan,” on Jan. 18.
