This is huge:
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) has fired an aide who was arrested on Monday at Dulles International Airport seemingly attempting to flee the United States. Imran Awan, who worked for Wasserman Schultz and several other Democrats for 12 years, was an IT aide. He is accused of double-charging the House of Representatives for IT equipment, and possibly for exposing sensitive House information online. Awan has been charged with bank fraud. He was born in Pakistan.
In March, he was fired by other House members, yet was still being paid by Wasserman Schultz until his arrest on Monday.
Per the Daily Caller, Awan transferred about $300,000 to an account in Pakistan in January. His wife was stopped at Dulles when it was found that she had $12,000 in her suitcase, but she was permitted to board the plane.
Investigators discovered smashed hard drives and other damaged equipment at Awan’s house in Virginia. Awan left his home after he learned he was under investigation, and one of his new tenants discovered the broken hard drives and reported them to authorities. The FBI has since confiscated the equipment.
That was from Townhall, an online conservative news magazine. Here’s what the Washington Post had to say:
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has fired an information technology staffer following his arrest on a bank fraud charge at a Virginia airport where he was attempting to fly to Pakistan.
Wasserman Schultz spokesman David Damron says Irman Awan was fired by the Florida Democrat Tuesday.
Awan’s attorney, Chris Gowen, confirmed that his client was arrested at Dulles Airport Monday. He says Awan was cleared to travel and had informed the House of his plans to visit his family before the scheduled trip.
Gowen says the federal bank fraud count stems from a “modest real estate matter” and is motivated by anti-Muslim bigotry. He’s confident Awan “will soon be able to clear his name and get on with his life.”
An arraignment is scheduled for Aug. 21, according to Gowen.
Notice anything different about the two versions?
Here’s what CNN reported:
So, once again a major scandal connected to the Democrats gets ignored by the fake news media.
