For the past two decades, whenever there is news of Democratic corruption, there are two names that turn up more frequently than anyone else: Bill and Hillary Clinton.
It happened again this week, in fact, in relation to the arrest of a Pakistani-born information technology (IT) worker who worked for a number of congressional Democrats, including Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schulz, the former head of the Democratic National Committee who also worked on Hillary’s last presidential campaign, and Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee.
As reported by Conservative Review, attorney Chris Gowan is representing Imran Awan, the IT professional who was arrested at Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C., as he was attempting to flee America for his native country. Gowan, it turns out, has deep ties to the Clinton political machine. (Related: The REAL Swamp: Democrat Corruption And Foreign Collusion Under Obama, Hillary, Pales In Comparison To Trump.)
Awan has been charged with bank fraud, though The Daily Caller — which has been tracking the Awan story for months now, says those are likely just “placeholder” charges until the Justice Department and FBI come up with what will likely be much more serious charges.
As The DC reported further:
[Awan] had access to all emails and files of dozens of members of Congress, as well as the password to the iPad that Wasserman Schultz used for Democratic National Committee business before she resigned as its head in July 2016.
In May during a hearing with U.S. Capitol Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa, Wasserman Schultz threatened him with consequences after he refused to agree to turn over electronic equipment she said belonged to her, but he said was part of an investigation into suspected cyber security breaches committed by Awan and other members of his family. Awan had been in charge of technology for the Florida Democrat since 2005; he was banned from the House IT network in February on suspicion of improper breaches of data and theft, The DC reported.
The news site also reported this week that the FBI discovered smashed hard drives from Awan’s home. Awan and three of his family members had access to files of more than two dozen Democrats in the House, who employed them on a part-time basis.
Conservative Review further noted:
As an IT staffer, Awan secured highly sensitive information from several members of Congress, including representatives in the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees. Imran Awan is just one of the individuals in a criminal probe. Other suspects in the investigation reportedly fled to Pakistan.
As for Gowan, he quickly played the race and politics card, saying his client’s arrest was due to Islamaphobia and claiming that it was all part of “a right-wing media-driven prosecution by the United States Attorney’s Office that wants to prosecute people for working while Muslim.”
You may recall that Hillary Clinton once claimed that criticism of her husband, including media reports of his many sexual dalliances, were all part of a “vast right-wing conspiracy” aimed at discrediting her and her family.
Gowan has a long history with the Clintons, beginning his professional life as a public defender but leaving soon thereafter to take a job in Bill Clinton’s administration. He also worked for then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., at the same time; in 2008, he joined Hillary’s first presidential campaign and directed some of its operations. Also, according to online biographies cited by Conservative Review, Gowan also worked on a number of controversial Clinton-related projects such as the Clinton Global Initiative, The Clinton Foundation, and the Clinton Health Access Initiative.
Finally, Wasserman Schultz — who was co-chair of Hillary’s 2008 campaign — also remains a close Clinton confidante.
The D.C. swamp is wide and deep, and the Clintons always seem to be floating around in it.
