If you rely largely upon the mainstream media for your news, you likely have heard little, if anything, regarding the FBI’s arrest on Monday of a Pakistani information technology staffer for Democrat Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Politico reported that Imran Awan was arrested at Dulles International Airport as he was trying to flee the country for Lahore, Pakistan. He faced arraignment in federal court Tuesday on a charge of bank fraud related to a home mortgage scheme, though he is suspected of committing other crimes and will likely face additional charges in the near future.
The IT staffer who has worked with dozens of Democrat members of Congress has been under criminal investigation for several months for alleged procurement theft, and is suspected of stealing money, equipment and information — potentially of the classified variety — from those for whom he worked.
The Gateway Pundit noted that Julian Assange of WikiLeaks on Tuesday posted to his Twitter account a portion of an email showing that Awan had access to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s iPad, a device that likely held state secrets and other sensitive information.

That email, part of a larger chain sent May 12, 2016, from one Wasserman Schultz aide to another, read, in part: “Pelosi is doing s(sic) closed door meeting. No staff or anyone allowed. Kaitlyn come to Rayburn room and get her iPad for Imran. Thanks.”
Though it is entirely possible that Pelosi was unaware of the IT staffer who was presumably doing routine maintenance on her iPad, considering the fact that Awan worked on Capitol Hill for years and provided IT service for dozens of Democrat lawmakers, it is equally as likely that she was acquainted with or at least aware of Awan.
Thus, it was rather strange when Pelosi was asked directly about the ongoing investigation of Awan by a reporter during a news conference in May and the Minority Leader claimed to be unfamiliar with both Awan and the suspicions swirling around him, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Asked about the investigation, Pelosi initially replied, “Well, the people who are under investigation are the Attorney General of the United States. I mean, what are we talking about here?”
Asked if Awan should still be employed by Democrat members of Congress — he was only released from Wasserman Schultz’s payroll Tuesday — Pelosi dodged the question and stated, “I’m not familiar — you have a very specific charge there. I haven’t followed that so closely. We’ve been busy with a lot of other things.”
“But, there are plenty of people who are under investigation who still have their jobs,” she quickly added, no doubt a shot at members of the Trump administration.
You can watch Pelosi dance around the pointed questions about Imran Awan right here:
The question has now become, how long has Awan had access to devices used by leaders and members of the Democrat party, and exactly what did he do with the information contained therein?
Hopefully all will be revealed when the investigation has concluded and additional charges are filed against the Pakistani IT staffer who attempted to flee the country while under criminal investigation.
