According to a recent report by Fox News, Imran Awan, the former IT aide for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) as well as more than 30 House Democrats, has entered a plea of not guilty in response to federal charges of bank fraud and conspiracy.

During the hearing Awan’s attorney, Chris Gowen, a former aide to Hillary and Bill Clinton, asked that the court remove the GPS monitoring bracelet from his client, claiming his client may need to attend to an emergency with his children in Pakistan.

However, Awan’s wife was not present in court, as she and her children were allowed to flee to Pakistan in March after being stopped by Capitol Police and U.S. Customs and Border Protection at Dulles International Airport.

According to the Daily Caller, during a press conference held outside of the courthouse, Gowen admitted that the children are in Pakistan, but refused to explain the discrepancy.

Awan’s attorneys further asked for other restrictions on his movement to be lifted, claiming that he has been driving for crowdsourced taxi service Uber. However, Uber has no record of any driver matching Awan on their systems.

The prosecution opposed this motion, claiming that Awan is a severe flight risk, and that his wife has no intention to return to the United States.

Last month, after attempting to wire $283,000 from the Congressional Federal Credit Union to bank accounts in Pakistan, Awan was arrested by FBI agents before he was able to board a flight to Pakistan at Dulles Airport.

The arrest came just days after it was reported that FBI agents had seized smashed computer hard drives from Imran Awan’s residence. Awan and his wife Hina Alvi, were subsequently indicted by a grand jury on four counts of bank fraud and making false statements on August 17.

After entering his plea of not guilty, Awan will not return to court until his scheduled status hearing on October 16.

5 Thoughts on “Imran Awan Pleads ‘Not Guilty’, Asks for Ankle Monitor to Be Removed”

  • Those who make a mockery of truth and justice, make violent, bloody revolution inevitable.
    The sewer known as USSA is primed and ready to blow and all the BS about Lil Kim and his fire works show aint gonna stop jack s#it.
    Karma is here bitchez.

    George Webb exposed this Awan Paki intelligence agent punk almost a year ago, yet the pre$$titutes and the corrupt FBI did all they could to bury it. Expecting anything to come of this is absurd in the extreme and proof that most USSANS are beyond helping.

  • I understand that Steve Wasserman is overseeing this case and had omitted the information in the lawsuit about being caught fleeing the country. Therefore if it is true at a later date these facts can not come out. More shady shit from democrats. It matters not that republicans hold house, senate and presidency they still are on the robes because they are bought off and they are liars. 2018 is going to see change.

  • Awan is involved in bank fraud, money laundering, spying on Congress, selling intel and domestic abuse. George Webb has a fascinating series on the Awan Brothers in Congress.
