Grand Jury Indictment For Democrat Intelligence Staffer Imran Awan and Spouse…

(Via Fox News) Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, was indicted Thursday on four counts including bank fraud and making false statements. The indictment also includes his wife Hina Alvi.

The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from.

Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July.

The indictment itself, which merely represents formal charges and is not a finding of guilt, addresses separate allegations that Awan and his wife engaged in a conspiracy to obtain home equity lines of credit from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by giving false information about two properties – and then sending the proceeds to individuals in Pakistan.

The case has put renewed scrutiny on Wasserman Schultz for keeping Awan on the payroll for months, even after a criminal investigation was revealed and he was barred from the House IT network.

Awan and other family members for years had a lucrative arrangement for IT-related work on Capitol Hill for House Democrats. According to The Daily Caller, the members of the Pakistani family made at least $4 million since 2009. (read more)

        Wasserman may take the fall; but the Hilldabest is the heart of the whole thing.

        Hilldabeast’s running mate, Tim Kaine, stepped down from the DNC Chair position and ran for VA Senate.(the seat held by retiring Jim Webb, the one who briefly ran for POTUS)

        Obie and the Beast more than likely “encouraged” (snicker – bought off) Kaine to step down with the promise of the VP slot, when the Queen was to be anointed.

          The Clintons have been working since they got married for this his & her POTUS thing.

          Hilldabeast took the Senate gig, because “being a first lady” was not a credential to run a POTUS campaign on. Then Obie interfered.

          So they started making plans.

    I’m hoping Congress puts the breaks on the Congressional hearings for the time being, and lets the wheels of justice grind away to find the truth.

    Congressional hearings have a way of mucking up legal cases, and sometimes I think Congress does it deliberately. Hearings are especially worrisome when one of their colleagues is involved. They protect their own. In that respect they are truly bipartisan.

      Yes the FBI is still investigating. The FBI was surveilling Awan & was not expecting him to flee so when he went to the airport, the FBI had to scramble to make placeholder charges to keep him in the country. This was just to keep him here while they finished the investigations into the House IT case.

          The case started when the step-mother called Va police because of Awan brothers mistreatment of her. Her relative knew what the bros were up to & reported them to someone with the Capitol Police & got initial investigation started.

          The case stayed with the Capitol Police & didn’t get turned over to the FBI until the man found the computer hard drives smashed in his garage. (I believe that’s what opened the FBI case )

          Awan went to the airport not long after the computer hard drives were turned in. I don’t remember exact timeline but the FBI’s part is not that old.

          “TheDCNF reported Sunday night that the FBI had joined the investigation and seized smashed hard drives from Imran’s home. The next day, the FBI apprehended him at Dulles Airport after noticing that he had purchased a ticket to Pakistan, via Qatar.”

              A Fed Grand Jury hears more than one case. When they seat a jury, they will serve for about 6-8 months so anything that happens during that time period is what they will hear. Nov 13 was the start date of a new jury.

              This case didn’t start until after Jan 2017 because the step mother called Fairfax, VA police on Jan 5, 2017. That was the beginning of all this.

              A few days after Jan 5th, a relative called the Capitol Police to tell them what the Awan bros were doing. Feb 2, 2017 the House banned the brothers but Debbie & Greg Meeks NY stood by them.

              I can’t find the article but I read that the House members tried to keep the case in the hands of the Capitol Police & not allow other agencies to get involved. Capitol Police doesn’t have the power to dig deep so it would have been a shallow investigation.

              You are right about not knowing exactly when FBI got in but Little Debbie tried her best to keep them out of it.

            Imran Awan, a longtime IT aide of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., is under investigation for allegedly stealing equipment and improperly accessing the House IT network, while working in Congress. Shortly after the case went public, Awan moved out of his home in Lorton, Virginia, renting it eventually to a couple, one a Marine Corps veteran and one a Navy Officer.

            The renters told The Daily Caller they found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and]a lot of brand new expensive toner.” They called the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which coordinated with the FBI and Capitol Police to seize the equipment.”

            So, the military may have been the go-between with the FBI.

    “…allegations that Awan and his wife engaged in a conspiracy to obtain home equity lines of credit from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by giving false information about two properties – and then sending the proceeds to individuals in Pakistan.”

    _______________

    Who does that?!?

    Why does a borrower do something that leaves a paper-trail straight to his own door, and why does a lender give money to someone without verifying the collateral?

    Did the bank extend them a significant amount of credit without doing their due diligence?

    Was an appraisal of the property value done?

    Was there a title search to verify whether the homes were owned free and clear or whether they had liens or mortgages?

    If you get a line of credit based on the equity in your house, and you withdraw cash, what you do with that cash is your business, as long as what you’re doing isn’t unlawful. And the lender wouldn’t care what you did with the cash (if they extended a line of credit to you), as long as you made your minimum monthly payments on time.

    If you DON’T make your payments on time, that leads to penalties and accrued interest, the credit lines are shut down, and eventually foreclosure proceedings are initiated. Is THAT when the discovery was made that the Awans gave false information about the two properties which were used as collateral to secure the equity credit lines?

    That should have been discovered before the application for the credit lines was ever APPROVED in the first place.

    Or is this another case of special privileges for another ‘protected class’, where the ‘regular rules’ for the ‘regular folks’ don’t apply?

      Excellent questions, Scott. I was Business Manager for a Real Estate firm at one point in my past and also a loan officer decades ago. The bank certainly didn’t do their due diligence and the bank employee handling the transaction should be FIRED. Sloppy work and probably some Congressional names dropped into some very gullible ears. Even so, the bank employee had to have accepted some very sketchy documents going into that file. He/she will have to testify unless Awans plead guilty. Yikes!

        ______________

        At least several people had to screw up or purposely commit fraud of some kind.

        It was a loan officer who took the application. Their job (among other things) is to make sure all the forms are filled out correctly and all standard documentation (W-2s or other proof of income, credit reports, etc.) are collected and added to the file. The Loan Officer must get the signature of the applicant’s employer (or someone in the applicant’s employer’s Human Resources department) on a form which confirms the applicant’s employment history. There is a whole list of documents to be collected and verifications to be obtained.

        When the file is more or less complete, the file is submitted to Underwriting. The Underwriter is either internal (if the entity is a bank) or external (if you are applying through a mortgage broker, in which case the broker is working with a third-party Lender).

        The Underwriter goes over the collected documents, and if no red flags jump out at them, issues a Conditional Approval contingent upon the completion of the Appraisal (value being as expected), contingent upon clear title after the chosen Title company performs their Title search, and any extra documents which may be required by the Underwriter (e.g., most current income statement or other proof that you haven’t been fired since the time of the initial loan application).

        If the appraisal is too low, the loan or line of credit is dead.

        If the title search shows any liens or mortgages that were not reported or factored into the CLTV (cumulative loan to value) equation at the initial application stage, the loan is dead.

        If they have less than the required amount of time on the job (e.g., 2 years), the loan is dead.

        There are a hundred ways for a loan application to end up dead.

        If there was intentional deception involved, it almost necessarily involves multiple individuals (a conspiracy). The Loan Officer can purposely misrepresent information to Underwriting, but that’s crazy, because all Underwriting has to do is make a quick call to the borrower’s employer for a verbal verification before the loan closes (which the often do!), or check any other conditional item, and if it turns out the Loan Officer lied or misrepresented something, he’s GONE and if he worked for a mortgage broker, that broker is probably cut off from doing business with that Lender again.

        The appraiser could fudge the value, but he’s not going to do it for the fun of it, so we’re back to conspiracy.

        I suppose it’s possible that the Underwriter could be dirty, but to what end? It doesn’t make sense, and no matter who did what, there are so many paper trails that you’re going to get caught sooner or later.

        And then beyond all that, once the loan is completed, it has to be reviewed by the bank’s or the Lending institution’s Compliance Officer.

        The people who lend money (or create money out of thin air by your signature on the dotted line, as the case may be) didn’t fall off the turnip truck yesterday. There are multiple levels of safeguards and gatekeepers that have to be defeated in order to deceive a Lender into making a bad loan.

        If it was just a small line of credit, the application process may be much less vigorous and more streamlined, but if it was a small line of credit, there would be no reason to go to all the trouble in the first place. A small line of credit would not facilitate a large sum of cash to send to Pakistan.

          Yes. It’s a process with safeguards against fraud, but according to the indictment the Awans made some misrepresentations (which carry penalties) and got away with it long enough to get a line of credit (equity). It would be interesting to know how!

            _______________

            Yes, I see that, now that I read the post below quoting part of the indictment:

            As The DCNF has reported, the Awans own numerous rental properties that often have multiple mortgages taken out on them, and they have told renters they want payments in untraceable ways.”

            That creates all kinds of problems. First, you need to be able to show that you have enough income to cover the proposed loan payment, and you can’t show that income if you have been collecting payments in cash or ‘other untraceable ways’. You have to be able to PROVE income. Ideally from the proposed property itself. f not from the property itself, then you have to prove that you have enough income from other sources to cover the proposed monthly payments, and that includes ALL of your monthly debt obligations, from utilities to credit card debt and other investment properties. The lender has a Debt-to-Income ratio which will kill the loan if you exceed that ratio, and if you are hiding income by taking cash rental payments, you already have trouble showing provable income.

            This is one reason why cash businesses (bars, prostitutes, you name it) have trouble getting loans, they cannot prove their income. They may have LOTS of income, but if they can’t prove it with 12 to 24 months of consistent bank deposits and 2 years’ worth of tax returns, the Lender cannot count that income.

            And how many properties is ‘numerous’? It is difficult to get financing from traditional lenders if you try to go over ten properties, unless you do an umbrella loan over several properties (which is usually undesirable for the borrower, because it ties those properties together, i.e., you can’t sell one without redoing the loan on all of the properties, which gets expensive), or you incorporate, and then you are looking at Commercial Lending, which is a whole different animal. Interest rates are higher, and loan-to-value ratios are lower. You are probably in a Commercial Lending scenario anyway, if it is a multi-unit rental building that has more than 4 units/apartments to the building.

            In any case, the Lender is not going to allow you to exceed debt-to-income ratios, and the fact that they were hiding income by requiring cash payments is putting up red flags all over the place.

            .
            .

            “The charging documents say Imran’s wife Hina Alvi, who also made $165,000 working for House Democrats, took out a second mortgage against a house from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by falsely claiming it was her “principal residence” and that she will “occupy” the property, and also fraudulently reported no rental income on her taxes.”

            _______________

            That’s another big problem.

            The loan-to-value ratios are different for Non-Owner Occupied than they are for your primary residence. For example, if a property is worth $100K and you own it free and clear, and you LIVE there, you might be able to obtain a $90K cash-out loan against the property, depending on your credit, income, etc.

            But in the same scenario, if it is an investment property that you rent to others, and NOT your primary residence, you might only qualify to get a $65K cash-out loan against the property. And you’re going to pay a higher interest rate (which will change your debt-to-income ratios, possibly killing the loan). Lenders know that if finances get tight, you are going to skip payments on your investment property before you skip payments on the roof over your own head.

            Non-owner Occupied = higher risk to the Lender = higher interest rate AND lower loan to value.

            If they lied about the property being their ‘principle residence’, that’s going to be a problem… maybe a little one in the greater scheme of things as they’re shaping up, but it’s plenty for prosecutors to start with.

          Pretty solid write-up on the loan process. I would agree that wholesale fraud would almost have to be involved. However, I’m wondering if the Congressional Federal Credit Union has its own “perks” similar to those that were exposed during the House Banking Scandal. These bastards never follow the same rules as everyone else. This could be a real eye-opener.

    Here’s what Awan did that he was indicted for.

    The last paragraph is is mind blowing.
    Awan tried to wire the money for a funeral & the credit union said that’s not acceptable so he said he would look on-line for an acceptable reason. There was a long pause & he said the reason for the wire was ‘buying property.’ The representative accepted the reason & did the wire transfer to Pakistan.

    The affidavit says he was charged with bank fraud involving fraudulently taking out mortgages, which was one of several financial schemes TheDCNF has detailed. It appears to be a placeholder for future charges, spurred because of the attempt to leave the country, and does not mention his work for Congress, which is the investigation’s primary focus.

    As TheDCNF has reported, the Awans own numerous rental properties that often have multiple mortgages taken out on them, and they have told renters they want payments in untraceable ways. The charging documents say Imran’s wife Hina Alvi, who also made $165,000 working for House Democrats, took out a second mortgage against a house from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by falsely claiming it was her “principal residence” and that she will “occupy” the property, and also fraudulently reported no rental income on her taxes.

    The affidavit also paints him as an overly confident con artist, saying he listed his House phone number when initiating the wire transfer, and pretended to be a woman — his wife — on the phone when a Congressional Federal Credit Union questioned the transfer. “The person answering the call, who was a male, pretended that he was Alvi. On the call, the [bank] representative asked the man to verify the address of where the wire was being sent and the purpose of the outgoing wire,” the document says.

    Imran claimed the $300,000 was for “funeral arrangements.”

    “The CFCU representative then stated that ‘funeral arrangements’ may not be an acceptable reason for the wire. The male speaking to the representative then responded that he would look online for an acceptable reason for the wire. After a long pause, the male said that the reason for the wire was ‘buying property.’ The representative accepted that reason and initiated the wire transfer to Pakistan.”

    • The last paragraph – is it really verbatim as it happened or fiction writing? I thought any transfer over 10K automatic triggers reporting to FBI or some agency from the bank?
      There was also another article about his wife being held at the airport due to undeclared 12K in cash but there was direct order from the FBI head honchos to let her go. The FBI agent made a note in his report that he was aware that the lady was never going to return but had to stand down. Frankly I do not know how much is real and how much is fiction in these articles about these brothers and their spouses working for our “esteemed” congress people.

        Under Count 4 the $10,000 is mentioned as a charge against Awan but I don’t know what happened as far as the credit union reporting it.

        unlawful monetary transactions, by engaging in a monetary transaction, by,

        From Formal Indictment

        19. On or about January I 8, 2017 , a wire transfer specialist at CFCU contacted the
        phone number listed on the intemational wire transfer request form, (202) 225-XXXX, and asked
        to speak with ALVI. AWAN answered the phone and pretended to be ALVI. The wire transfer
        specialist asked AWAN for the reason for the wire transfer, and AWAN stated that it was for
        “funeral arrangements.” The wire transfer specialist questioned whether “funeral arrangements”
        was a sufhcient reason for such a large transfer. AWAN then changed his reason to “purchasing
        property.” The wire transfer specialist then initiated the $283,000 wire from the United States to
        the trvo individuals in Faisalabad, Pakistan, listed on ALVI’s wire transfer request form.

    George Webb has been investigating the Awans for many months. Frustrated at getting zero media coverage he wandered the halls of congress and spoke to as many Reps as he could find about the Awans. He also started wearing t shirts with “Ask Me About The Awans” printed on them. Finally he gave the story to Rozniak who published.

    However, what Rozniak reports is just the tip of the iceberg. According to Webb, the Awans also took loans from the Congress in house savings and loan to start multiple businesses in the DC area with several of the businesses closing and defaulting on the loans. At least a couple of the businesses were prestige auto sales. You can’t make this stuff up it’s so out there. One was called Cars International Awan or CIA LLC. Basically the Awans would take high end cars on consignment from outer areas, they particularly liked Bentleys. Then the cars disappeared. Various consignors sued. One consignor was murdered. George Webb alleges the Awans held diplomatic passports (only obtained through the White House) and used diplomatic pouch immunity to cover the cars being shipped out to Africa and the middle east in shipping containers (apparently diplomatic pouch these days covers shipping containers).

    Another creditor who threatened to sue the Awans, Rao Abbas, suddenly appeared on the congressional payroll and ended up receiving $250,000 in taxpayer-financed salary through the end of 2016. On top of all that, the Awans’ dealership was unable to repay a $100,000 loan to an Iraqi businessman, Dr. Ali Al-Attar, who has ties to the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, and fled to the Mideast to avoid prosecution for tax fraud in the U.S.

    And that’s just the cars.
    Then there’s the weapons shipments, the depleted Uranium shipments, these guys are into everything. They have shipping companies as well. As I say above you couldn’t in your wildest dreams make this stuff up…

      There is no telling who in Congress knew what the Awans were up to.
      I hope we see some justice done.

It is mind blowing what is going on and remains unreported by the media.So many well known names involved, that of Andrew McCabe is especially troubling.
