Fled Pakistani IT Worker, Wife of Imran Awan, Strikes Deal with DOJ; Will Return to US and Face Charges

In exchange for testimony? That's what we'd hope, but I doubt that's true. As the media is now the primary institution for suppressing the truth and colleges now the primary vehicles for punishing questioning or proposing new ideas, the Department of Justice is now focused mainly on covering up crimes.

Hina Alvi is the wife of Imran Awan, and both face charges of conspiracy and bank fraud. Both worked for Democrats for several years, and Awan worked directly for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., when she was chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.


A document filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia indicates that federal prosecutors have struck a deal with Alvi that would allow her to return to the U.S., but would also require her to surrender her passport and afterwards not book any international travel. The deal only surrounds how Alvi will turn herself in, and is structured so that she can avoid being arrested in front of her children when she returns to the U.S., "during the last week of September 2017."

And on the IT5 beat, this story is insanely curious, though I don't know what to make of it.

The notorious computer in the possession of the Capitol Police -- which Debbie Wasserman-Schultz first seemed to indicate was her own, then later claimed was just Imran Awan's and that she was just trying to get it back to protect his rights -- was discovered in a way that almost suggests Imran Awan wanted it to be connected to him.

U.S. Capitol Police found the laptop after midnight April 6, 2017, in a tiny room that formerly served as a phone booth in the Rayburn House Office Building, according to a Capitol Police report reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation's Investigative Group. Alongside the laptop were a Pakistani ID card, copies of Awan's driver's license and congressional ID badge, and letters to the U.S. attorney. Police also found notes in a composition notebook marked "attorney-client privilege."

The laptop had the username "RepDWS," even though the Florida Democrat and former Democratic National Committee chairman previously said it was Awan's computer and that she had never even seen it.

...

The laptop was found on the second floor of the Rayburn building a place Awan would have had no reason to go because Wasserman Schultz's office is in the Longworth building and the other members who employed him had fired him.

The article goes on to detail the vehemence with which Debbie Wasserman-Schultz insisted that her computer be returned to her, even though it was evidence in a crime, and then her changing the story to say it was Imran's computer, and she'd never seen it before.

I don't know what to make of this.
