Wasserman Schultz IT staffer arrested for bank fraud, tried to flee country on plane

This opens up a whole new can of worms for the Democrats in Washington as their entire world will soon be turned upside down

WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) — IT staffer of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a man by the name of Imran Awan, 37, was arrested by the FBI and U.S. Capitol Police for bank fraud at Dulles airport just before he attempted to flee the country on a plane to his planned destination of Pakistan.

The Pakistani-born information technology staffer is at the center of a criminal probe which may link others, possibly even the Florida Congresswoman.

The foreign national allegedly billed the U.S. government and may have profited off of the scheme along with others who are potentially involved.

“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,” according to Politico.

The IT staffer was released by a federal court on bail with a GPS ankle monitor to later stand trial.
