Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Former IT Staffer Indicted On Four Felony Counts

Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Former IT Staffer Indicted On Four Felony Counts

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., has been indicted on four counts, including bank fraud and making false statements, according to a Fox News report Thursday.

Imran Awan, who along with three members of his family and one friend made over $4 million by providing IT services to Democratic politicians since 2010, had access to sensitive congressional information.

The grand jury for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia made the decision nearly a month after Awan was arrested on bank fraud charges at an airport trying to fly to Pakistan in July.

Glen Vernon, head of Prestatyn High Sixth Form, said: "These significant increases are unprecedented. I've had to work hard to get to this point and I'm really proud of what I have achieved".

In a statement released last month, Wasserman Schultz explained that she did not fire Awan until after he was arrested because up until then, her office did not believe he had done anything illegal.

Juan Williams said it's "puzzling" that Wasserman Schultz kept Awan on the payroll, even after a criminal investigation was revealed and he was barred from the House IT network. "The indictment also includes his wife Hina Alvi".

Awan, who worked for more than two dozen House Democrats, was paid almost $2 million since 2004. A few weeks later, Wasserman Schultz finally granted police access to a laptop in their possession related to the investigation, though it's unclear if it is the same laptop that she demanded be returned for her.

Sierra Leone, a former British colony, meanwhile received condolences from Queen Elizabeth II, who said she was "deeply saddened".

Wasserman Schultz also blamed the "right-wing media circus fringe" for obsessing over Awan, accusing them of only doing so to distract from the investigation into Russian collusion with the Trump campaign.

"Any opportunity they can to pull people's eyes and ears away from that they take", she told the Sun-Sentinel.

Government officials say possible security breaches from the former DNC head's staff are very serious, and being closely looked into.
