EXCERPT----The tech vendor said it was clear that Imran was soliciting a cash bribe. Imran said to the vendor,
There is this new Democrat House member from Florida named Graham. Lets make a deal and Ill get you into her office (as a supplier).
Imran showed me a letter and I said, Look Imran, I cant do that, its not legal.' The letter, the vendor said Imran showed him, was a House member's commitment to award a tech contract. And at 8 am the very next morning, he had another signed letter from a House member rescinding it and said Lets go with Lockheed instead,' the vendor told TheDCNF.
Imran has that much power, the vendor continued. How the hell did he have that much control over a Democrat House member that by 8 am the Democrat House member has done his exact bidding? If you were a new House member who just got elected you'd think theyd be like, Well, why are we switching, you told me yesterday the other was better?'
I cant articulate how loyal House Democrat members were to him, the source alleged. Id say something like Id do [tech services] for a quarter of the cost [what members were paying Imran] and Democrat House members would say no. (Saving money for the taxpayers was not in the Democrat House members lexicon.)
The vendor provided a variety of other detailed information about Imran that TheDCNF independently corroborated.
<><> He told TheDCNF in February 2017 that Imran described in detail how the Democrat House member's aide falsified official US govt invoices months before others publicly reported the scheme.
<><>The vendor said Imran told him he routinely misstated the value of Democrat House members' tech purchases so they were treated as petty cash and not tracked.
<><>House officials later confirmed Imran's MO.
