It was near the end of July when Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s former IT aide, Imran Awan, was on his way out of the country when he was arrested at Dulles International Airport and charged with bank fraud. Just days earlier, the Daily Caller reported that the FBI had seized smashed hard drives from Awan’s home.

Fox News is reporting Thursday evening that Awan and his wife have been indicted on four counts, including bank fraud and making false statements.
Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July.
The case has put renewed scrutiny on Wasserman Schultz for keeping Awan on the payroll for months, even after a criminal investigation was revealed and he was barred from the House IT network.
Hey, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Since she was his manager, she is responsible after the fact. She needs to be charged.
