One of the IT aides to Democrat and former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was caught trying to flee the country. His wife, who was also an IT aide, successfully fled to Pakistan. But now she’s being returned to the United States to face charges.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Democratic IT staffer who fled the country strikes deal to return, face charges
A former House Democrat tech staffer who fled the country to Pakistan while under criminal investigation has struck a deal with federal officials to return to the U.S. and appear at an arraignment, according to court documents.
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.”
Will Debbie Wasserman Schultz face any charges? When this investigation really gets going, you know she’s going to go under a microscope.
