The former top IT aide who worked for prominent House Democrats is on the verge of striking a huge plea deal with prosecutors. According to Fox News, given the massive attention on the case and what he knows, several top democrats should be very worried about what information he may agree to hand over.
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan granted a request from federal prosecutors to set a plea hearing on July 3 for Imran Awan — the former IT aide — and his wife, Hina Alv. Awan is in big trouble in the “espionage” case, and the hacker is begging for a plea deal.
The filing from federal prosecutors didn’t reveal any details about the terms or conditions of the agreement, but said the two parties are currently working to reach a deal in the explosive case involving former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz and other top House Democrats.
Awan, who previously served as Wasserman Shultz’s IT aide, was arrested earlier this year on charges of financing terror back home in Pakistan. The specific charges against Awan also are not clear, as he has not been charged for breaching one-in-five House Democrats’ systems in Congress, stealing equipment and taking it home, or any of his other illegal actions.
As such, many believe that the government will offer him a favorable plea deal in exchange for information on Wasserman Shultz and other democrats who may have been aware of his hacking, illegal activity, and money laundering.
Awan controlled the network servers and managed office IT for democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and others.
Awan’s plea deal means that Wasserman Shultz is likely on the verge of a complete meltdown as she was allegedly involved in the hacking scandal and cover-up.
As previously reported by Conservative Daily Post, Awan was exposed more than a year ago for his alleged illegal activity on Congressional data networks. He has been accused of bank fraud and money laundering connected to terror groups in Pakistan. Awan was a senior IT aide for Wasserman Shultz until he was found guilty last year of wiring money to terrorists.
Earlier this year, CDP published a detailed report highlighting how Awan was arrested and charged with bank fraud after trying to flee the country back to the Middle East. Awan and his wife were wiring hundreds of thousands of dollars — which they received from their cushy jobs helping democrats with their servers — to terrorists back home.
Since 2010, Awan, his wife, and two crooked brothers were paid more than $4 million from House Democrats for their “services” on their computers, servers, and data networks.
With Awan fighting for a plea deal to avoid serious jail time, Wasserman Shultz and other democrats could be in serious trouble.
Many are hoping that federal prosecutors will only agree to a deal that involves Awan giving up all of the democrats who were complicit in the hacking scandal and allowing American taxpayer money to be sent to terrorists.
