Imran Awan Asks Judge to Remove GPS Claiming ‘Emergency With Kids’ – In Pakistan! (VIDEO)
Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s former IT staffer, Imran Awan was arraigned in federal court Friday on four felony fraud charges.
He appeared with three attorneys including Chris Gowen, a former close aide to Hillary and Bill Clinton, The Daily Caller reports.
Investigative reporter for The Daily Caller, Luke Rosiak broke the story about the Awan brothers several months ago. Since then, he has written well over a dozen reports documenting their various scams and illegal activities. Awan was arrested at Dulles airport trying to flee to Pakistan.
The Daily Caller reported that Imran Awan wired $283,000 from Congressional Federal Credit Union in a House office building to two people in Pakistan. Awan and his wife were also carrying $12,000 at the time of the arrest.
Former Chairwoman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is knee-deep in this scandal. She threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with ‘consequences’ for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against Imran Awan.
Questions have also surfaced regarding Awan’s attorney.
One of the first questions is how can the Awan brother afford his attorney? Already reported was Awan’s financial duress. If he was in poor financial condition who is paying his attorney? His attorney is Chris Gowan who is a high-powered Clinton attorney.
Fox News’ Jesse Watters even asked, “Now why is a Clinton attorney getting involved, representing a low-level IT Staffer for the House Democrats? Doesn’t make a lot of sense.”
Now Awan’s attorney is asking for his client’s GPS monitor to be removed so he can travel to Pakistan!
Daily Caller’s Rosiak reported:
Gowen asked that Imran Awan’s GPS monitoring bracelet be removed, citing that Imran might need to attend to an emergency with his children. In a press conference outside court, Gowen admitted that the children are in Pakistan and refused to explain the discrepancy.
Prosecutors opposed the motion strongly, saying Imran is a severe flight risk who made a massive and deliberate effort to send hundreds of thousands of dollars to Pakistan before trying to board a flight to the country. The FBI arrested him at the airport. They said his wife is already in Pakistan and that authorities are sure she has no intention to return.
