Skip to comments.Lawyers for Awans cite evidence of widespread procurement fraud by House Democrats
Posted on 10/08/2017 4:14:00 PM PDT by Libloather
Imran Awan, his brothers and their associates were merely doing what they were ordered to do by Democratic members of Congress when the IT aides allegedly falsified records on how the members office budgets were spent, according to lawyers for Awan.
One of Imrans lawyers, Aaron Page, who acknowledged the invoicing discrepancy on office equipment last month, told DCNF, This is just how things have been done for forever. This is what experienced members of Congress expect: to expedite things, they adjust the pricing.
Luke Rosiak of DCNFs Investigative Group noted that If members or senior staff instructed IT aides to misrepresent how budgets were spent, that could potentially explain why officials have not charged the Awans with crimes related to procurement, even a full year after House authorities gathered documentation showing invoices that claimed expensive technological items cost $499 instead of their true price: potentially an open-and-shut violation.

RATS take a knee?
Here’s a little problem for Nancy Pelosi to sink her teeth into.
The Awans roll on the whole DNC? Could it be happening?
Hahaha. Winning! In my dreams, I see all 18 or so DIM idiots who employed these enemies being frog-marched into a Fed SuperMax. Traitors! Losers!
Wow, maybe they're secretly Russians, that would explain it!
And the testicularless RINOcrat in Congress are too gutless to politically waterboard the traitorous Demonicrats into cooperating.

ACTION NOW-Contact your Representative and Senators Capitol Switchboard 1-866-220-0044
Call President Trump---- Comments: 202-456-1111 Switchboard: 202-456-1414
TALKING POINTS: (A) taxpayers demand action on House shakedown schemes. (B) sever all public monies that fund this activity.
Shirley, you jest.
Imran's employer, Democrat Yvette Clarke
proudly describes herself as a "Caribbean American."
There's even a "Caribbean Caucus" on Capitol Hill.
Democrat Clarke's Caribe Connection could prove to be interesting.
Clarke had the answers for Democrats as to where to stash tax dollars.
REFERENCE---Investigators found Ponzi King Bernie Madoff had stashed billions offshore---into a labyrinth of financial entities. Some $8.9 billion was funneled to Madoff through a dozen so-called feeder funds based in Europe, the Caribbean and Central America.
Madoff's stash in hedge funds, management companies and service providers evaded scrutiny for decades.
The Republicans are doing it too. Count on it.
My, my, my....Isn’t this a precious group.
Perhaps, someone can conjure up the image of old Dan Rostenkowski (D-Illinois). He worked the money machine at the congressional post office.
Then, he learned to make license plates.
Nothing to see here.
Did you know Harvey Weinstein was fired?
Oh, look! A Squirrel!
In this venue, it all hangs out.
Probably just one among many corrupt practices by both parties in the swamp. It would be such shadenfraude if the crack in the dam of Congressional criminality comes by way of defense attorneys for the crooked Awan brothers. We Freepers learned about them last winter. I wonder if people who get their news from the propaganda MSM have ever heard of them.
Still no action on Obama's illegal wiretaps? Thanks Libloather.
They made fun of us and thought George Webb was crazy.
