Skip to comments.A Strange Tale: the Congressional Federal Credit Union and Democrats' IT spies
Posted on 07/29/2017 8:10:59 AM PDT by Liz
SOME RESEARCH PROVIDED BY ANDREW McCARTHY (sarcasm provided by poster): bank fraud was the stated charge on which Debbie Wassermann Schultz's IT aide, Imran Awan, was arrested at Dulles Airport, as he was fleeing the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar.......the same route taken by his wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled, with $12,400 in cash (NOTE: it is against the law to take more than $10,000 out of the US).
By the time of Imran's arrest, the proceeds of his fraudulent $165,000 "loan" from the Congressional Federal Credit Union had been wired to Pakistan.... part of a $283,000 transfer that Awan managed to wire from Capitol Hill.
The conniving Imran pulled it off by pretending to be his wife in a phone call to Capitol Hill's true believers---the Congressional Federal Credit Union. Told that his proffered reason for the transfer (funeral arrangements) wouldnt fly, Mrs. Awan promptly regrouped: Now she was buying property.
Asking no more questions, the compliant Congressional Federal Credit Union wired the money......to Pakistan.
One assumes the trusting Congressional Federal Credit Union had every expectation of getting repaid (cue laugh machine here).

The employee or bank officer that approved this needs looking into. They had to know that was a farce.
Don’t be shy——tell us why Andrew McCarthy’s take on this is wrong.
Plus....did Cong Debbie have to sign off on any financial transactions of her employee?

Failing to *report* more than $10k cash and filing an official form is illegal. There isn’t really an upper limit, but no doubt the Feds will investigate where the money came from.
For someone even remotely connected to a scam, it might be a Catch-22; illegal to not declare and incriminating if declared.
I’m sorry, but we’re going to have to start hanging thieves.
There are too many of them and they aren’t afraid of prison.
Evidently they allowed her to make a declaration after they discovered the money. I’ve seen that happen coming into the states and it was a foreigner who claimed to speak no english.
What an interesting point!

TALKING POINTS: Americans demand to know the scope and dimension of the Congressional Federal Credit Union using the power of the Congress and the US govt to engage in shady financial transactions ......particularly w/ individuals attempting to flee the country, suspected of committing treasonous crimes.
Yes. I believe there are official instructions available that tell a traveler to get the form and help from a customs/border agent.
It's not illegal. Just ya have to fill out a FinCEN 105 form.
Was the loan officer paid a commission or bonus based upon the dollar volume and/or new transactions booked onto the loan ledger?
Really, its not like this credit union has growth potential. /sarc
Find the loan audit team and read the credit review report. There may be some real gems in the work papers.
There are too many of them and they arent afraid of prison.
