A More Positive Take on the Awan Plea Deal
Stream ^ | 7/11/18 | MIKE HUCKABEE

Posted on 07/12/2018 2:22:08 AM PDT by Libloather

**SNIP**

So, if it’s not going to be handled in D.C., where WILL it be handled? Robinson suggests that it’s moving from D.C. to Utah, under U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was selected by Attorney General Sessions to handle cases related to the IG report. Remarkably, Huber operates with a staff of 470 investigators, far exceeding the investigative power of a special counsel. One other possibility, if the cases relating to Awan include allegations of treason or other matters of national security, is that they will be tried in a military court, away from the media and the chance of compromising sensitive information, sources or methods. That lessens the likelihood that any “big fish” will get away on a technicality.

“Rest assured,” Robinson concludes, “this entire case is being handled with the utmost care.”

It’s hard to have confidence in that, especially when we’ve watched certain people skate for so long, but let’s hope she’s right. Sessions’ decision to call upon John Huber to team up with the IG and conduct a full-fledged criminal investigation in Utah, in the clean mountain air far from the stinky D.C. swamp, may turn out to be every bit as brilliant as top legal expert Jonathan Turley said it was in March.

I’ve always wondered why the taxpayers are kept in the dark when it is the taxpayers that fund their activities. One has to suppose our elected are afraid of the truth being told about what they spend taxpayer money on

What happened? Was there some sort of deal about the Amwan case?

This is the first I am hearing of it

HOW THE HOUSE DEMOCRAT IT SCAM WORKED: CDW Government, Inc (approved tech supplier to the US govt) knowingly accepted falsified invoices from House Democrats who employed the Awans. The invoices routinely showed high-priced tech items falsely billed at just under the $500.00 ......the cutoff rule that kept the purchases off the House tracking radar.

<><> CDW Government, Inc then made up the difference in the actual price by rigging the cost of a service plan.

<><> More shockingly, CDW Government Inc. then shipped the equipment..... not to the Congressional office that ordered it...... but to Imran’s house.

=================================

Could be major kickbacks involved. The paper trail is readily available.

Cong Yvette Clarke and all of the House Democrats that employed the Awans should be audited and complete
investigations of their IT transactions, as well as House office and financial records should commence:

<><> payroll, vouchers, expense accounts, office expenditures,

<><> travel itinerary, credit card accounts, family finances,

<><> campaign income and outgo,

<><>personal/office/campaign bank accounts,

<><> wire-transfers, snail mail, email, UPS packages,

<><> electronic devices, hard drives, spreadsheets, text files, etc etc etc.

Keep in mind, as the Awan clan worked House Democrats' intel, Cong Debbie W/S was a big shot, riding on AF One with Obama---and heading the DNC.

D/W/S mentored the Awan clan and facilitated huge IT govt paychecks for them....a group not particularly trained in IT.

An even bigger mystery than how they got here is how the shady Pakis as criminal suspects got visas to abscond.

Did "someone" with a lot of political pull facilitate the visas to help them abscond?

Some reports say the Pakis traveled on WH visas.

If you’ve been searching for ‘Amwan’, you may have missed it. Try an FR search for Awan. It’ll pop up.

Imram Awan's team of lawyers (headed by Chris Gowen) are top members of the Clinton Crime Machine, well seasoned in corruption and deceit. They are probably the tip of the iceberg with unseen thugs threatening, bribing, blackmailing and stealing evidence.

No plea deal is good for the US if they are still "working for" Awan and his gang. It's got to be a sham. If we ever hear those lawyers have been fired; well, then I might believe Awan would turn. As long as that nest of snakes is writhing around him - no.

The Pakis were cocksure of themselves. They were being protected by D/w/S and “someone” high up in the political food chain......they left a huge paper trail figuring no one would ever see it.

EXHIBIT A—— Earlier data indicates Imran was quite the landowner and operator.

HAT TIP LUKE ROSIAK, DAILY CALLER

The Awans owned numerous homes that operated as rental properties.
Interviews w/ tenants revealed the Awans demanded cash or blank money orders as rental payments.

DEMOCRATS’ IT, IMRAN AWAN, FINDS TIME TO BROKER REAL ESTATE-—Virginia licensing documents show that Imran Awan became a licensed real estate broker during the time period he was earning $160,000 tax dollars from House Democrats. The licensing process requires certifying that the applicant was working “an average of at least 40 hours per week” as a real estate agent at the time. Brokers typically supervise real estate agents and handle large amounts of money.

HAT TIP PTSAL—— All of the Awan’s property record data, appraisals, home inspections, title reports, mortgage applications, escrow disbursement records, etc. are archived in the cloud. IMHO, many people KNEW and used nuanced language in their reports that avoided words that would trigger an audit. At the lowest level start w/ the appraisers because these licensed professions had to physically inspect these properties owned by the AWANS.

EXHIBIT B——The scam Imran Awan pulled at the Congressional Federal Credit Union
for which he is under indictment has the potential to open a can of worms.

<><> there is a paper trial——Imran’s loans should be well-documented.

<><> One document to be examined is the appraisal, particularly the FORM NUMBER of the appraisal.

<><>A home appraisal would be on one form, while an income property would be on another.

<><> Falsifications here starts to unravel the story.

<><>The appraiser is obligated to archive the file for five years. Many appraiser are archived on the cloud with national data services.

<><>The Awans apparently had a number of facilitators. Is there any commonality in the service providers associated with the multiple property purchases that are reportedly associated with the Awan clan? Real estate agent, title company, escrow, closing attorney, appraiser, home inspector, etc. So many of these folks have been on-site and seen something, IMHO.

<><> important to know that appraisers are regulated at the state-level.


Two sources said that in recent weeks, Imran has discussed providing third parties with money and having them travel to New York City to buy and return with a 1-kilogram gold bar. “He wants to hide his money,” one source said in relation to the gold.

(NOTE better check Imran’s toothpaste——one thief turned his money into diamonds and stuffed them in a toothpaste tube to get it out of the USA.)

I IG report regarding the Awans was a bust. A “see no evil” conclusion as regards possible espionage and data theft.

It is becoming increasingly clear. There are two doors leading into the DOJ. The left door leads to no accountability and freedom. The right door leads to ruined careers and lives.

But one response offered an interesting take. Mind you, it involves giving Jeff Sessions the benefit of the doubt and picturing him as working steadfastly behind the scenes to ensure that justice is eventually done. Not easy, I know; it’s like being the kid who gets a pile of manure at Christmas and just KNOWS there has to be pony in there somewhere! But for the moment, let’s try to do that and take the ride with reader Bonnie Robinson.

So Robinson is just some random reader of Mike's blog...got it.

IT Suspects Wanted Untraceable Payments — Millions Disappeared
Daily Caller ^ | Jul 5, 2017 | Luke Rosiak / FR Posted on ‎7‎/‎30‎/‎2017‎ ‎by Ray76

The Awan gang may have engaged in myriad other questionable schemes besides allegedly placing “ghost employees” on the congressional payroll. Imran Awan, his wife Hina, and brothers Abid and Jamal collectively netted more than $4 million in salary as IT administrators for House Democrats between 2009 and 2017. Yet the absence of signs of wealth displayed among them raise questions such as was the money sent overseas or did something other than paychecks motivate their actions?

But official documents, court records and multiple interviews suggest the crew may have engaged in tax fraud, extortion, bankruptcy fraud and insurance fraud and the money could have been funneled overseas. Abid has hired high-profile attorney James Bacon who specializes in anti-money laundering litigation.

The family owns significant amounts of Virginia rental properties, which are heavily financed, with second mortgages sometimes taken out. It’s unclear where the rental income goes because the Awans insist tenants pay in odd ways. The Daily Caller News foundation interviewed multiple current and former tenants who said Imran insisted rent be paid in untraceable ways.

"He only wants cash — for the security deposit, everything. The mortgage is probably $600, we pay $1,800 a month,” one said. “I would write the rent to all sorts of different people,” another claimed. While still another tenant said the family insisted on blank money orders. (Excerpt) Read more at dailycaller.com ...

(HAT TIP FREEPER IAMACONSERVATIVE): Imran had control of ALL of the House Dems' Blackberrys. If the Dems were using a Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES), and I'm betting they did, then Awan could easily have backdoored all the SMS and Email content, including classified intel, sent through their Blackberry's for however long he had that access. Definitely makes Awans' blackmailing elected members like ten Cong Xavier Becerra a possibility.

============================================

UPDATE Xavier Becerra is now California's top L/E officer. His employment of Imran raises serious questions about Becerra's law enforcement abilities and his qualifications for office.

ITEM--- The Awan clan is under investigation for double-billing Congress, for stealing House members' electronics for resale, for placing no-shows on the House payroll.

<><> Did Becerra ever file a police report about missing/stolen govt-issue equipment?

<><> Did Becerra ever alert federal L/E authorities that Imran stole tax dollars?

<><> Did Becerra ever file a police report about falsified official govt documents and that tax dollars went missing due to ghost employees Imran placed on the Congressional payroll.

<><> Did Becerra ever issue a warning to his constituents that their emails and private info had been compromised?

NOTE: The Awan clan had access to all of Becerra's emails and Congressional correspondence. This means they have Becerra's constituents' SS nos and personal info.....b/c constituents are required to give the member their SS no when corresponding w/ the member.

“I would write the rent to all sorts of different people,”

So Amran did not show income coming in on his income property investments? Did he ever file a Schedule E? That is an IRS tax form for rental and investment income. I have filed that form for over 18 years now, am very careful about rental deposits and expenses. I have not deposited cash occasionally, but always? I would be scared to not show any income from my income properties for years on end.

Maybe since he was a foreigner he did not know the tax code concerning property investment, maybe that is why he never got audited as he had no intent to defraud, because he was from Pakistan and did not know our tax laws?

One of Imrans's tenants said: “I would be asked to write the rent check to all sorts of different people.....”....

So Amran did not show income from property investments? Did he ever file a Schedule E?.....
an IRS tax form for rental and investment income. I, myself, would be scared to not show any income from my properties for years on end.

Maybe since he was a foreigner, "Imran did not know the US tax code WRT property investment?"
.....he had no intent to defraud; he was from Pakistan and did not know our tax laws?

========================================

He could have copped the "hillary no intent defense" but he was pretty savvy about all other financial dealings.
So I dont think that defense holds water for him.
