Feds Charge DWS' Former IT Aides

A federal grand jury Thursday indicted two former information technology (IT) aides of Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz — Pakistani-born Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi — on four counts of conspiracy in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

The FBI arrested Awan at Dulles International Airport July 24 as he was preparing to board a flight to Pakistan. When his wife Alvi left the U.S. for Pakistan in March, federal authorities found more than $12,000 in cash hidden in a suitcase. She had withdrawn the couple’s three children from local schools and does not intend to return to the U.S., according to the FBI.

“Defendants AWAN and ALVI did unlawfully, willfully, and knowingly conspire, combine, confederate, and agree with each other to commit offenses against the United States,” including bank fraud, false statements, and unlawful monetary transactions, the indictment said.

There's an awful stink coming from this new chapter in the Dems' "how can we screw up even more" narrative. But it doesn't overpower the smell coming from the bowels of its organization, where corruption rules and people mysteriously die on a regular basis.

if the wife does decide to return to the us, I'm sure she will be welcomed with open arms.

DWS needs to be charged.
