Imran and Abid Awan, a Pakistani family that formerly worked as IT aides for members of the House, ran a car dealership that is now suspected of money-laundering for Hezbollah, maybe other nefarious entities. The family is suspected of gathering intelligence for a foreign entity on US soil.
House Democratic Caucus’ server was being used for purposes other than good ones, and the computers were still being accessed even through the computers of Congressional members the Awans’ didn’t work for. They had taken steps to mask their activity. But that wasn’t the only little project the Awans were involved in:
Cars International A- a money laundering venture
Here again is the chart that showed how a car dealershp laundered money for Hezbollah. Hezbollah is a terror group sponsored by Iran. Iran has the nuclear deal. Nobody seemed to want to rock that boat at the time.
The Daily Caller reported,
Imran Awan and his family members were congressional IT aides who investigators said made unauthorized access to the House Democratic Caucus server thousands of times. At the same time as they worked for and could read all the emails of congressmen who sat on committees like Intelligence, Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs, they also ran a car dealership that took money from a Hezbollah-linked fugitive and whose financial books were indecipherable and business patterns bizarre, according to testimony in court records.
While Imran and Abid Awan ran their car dealership in Falls Church, Va. in the early part of the decade, Drug Enforcement Agency officials a few miles away in Chantilly were learning that the Iranian-linked terrorist group frequently deployed used car dealerships in the US to launder money and fund terrorism, according to an explosive new Politico expose.
The Awan’s car dealership was called “Cars International A” or C.I.A. for short. Either they thought that was hilarious, or something else was going on that they could operate with apparent impunity within the United States for so long.
The court documents relevant to the Awan investigation so far are at this link.
But the depth of this IT mess goes far beyond “Project Cassandra” which we reported previously. Imran and Abid Awan, brother Jamal Awan, wife Hina Alvi (Ukrainian also an IT aide), all were paid $160,000 per year, yet displayed no outward signs of their wealth. They rented out properties and demanded rent money in cash.
They frequently wired large sums of money overseas and deposited large sums of money. The FBI purportedly has a thick file on these issues.
Is this fishy?
The Daily Caller article goes on to say,
Abid declared bankruptcy in 2010 to discharge debts racked up by the car dealership. One person who was listed on bankruptcy documents as being owed money by the dealership, Rao Abbas, later appeared on the House payroll as an IT aide, even though his most recent job experience was working at McDonalds. Democrats have refused to explain why they hired him.
Abid kept ownership of two houses in the bankruptcy by saying he was separated or divorcing from [Natalia] Sova, but even this year, they were still together, and Sova used Abid’s residence when incorporating her own car companies. Sova established a mysterious company called Alain LLC in 2009, followed by Discover EZ Car Buying Co. in 2014 and Regional Car Center Inc. in 2015.
Rep Debbie Wasserman-Schultz kept Imran on staff as an IT person long after everyone else had fired him. Something is extremely wrong here – these so-called IT people were ALL hired by Democrats. Either the Dems were completely oblivious to them, or they knew about the spurious nature of their hires and did nothing.
The Hezbollah expose of Obama blocking prosecutions and this information speaks volumes about the agenda that has been trying to bring down the United States from within.
