The scandal currently rocking the Washington Democratic establishment—despite a mainstream media blackout—is continuing to grow.

Imran Awan, who worked for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fl.) for nearly 12 years, was caught attempting to flee the United States to his native Pakistan last week—after taking out a fraudulent loan from the Congressional Federal Credit Union. His wife had already fled to Pakistan weeks earlier with their three children, taking tens of thousands of stolen taxpayer dollars with them.

In addition to bank fraud, Awan—along with his two brothers, who also worked for Democrats on Capitol Hill—are now being accused of selling U.S. government secrets to foreign agencies.

Judge Anthony Napolitano, on Fox News, explained that Imran Awan “was arrested for some financial crime. That’s the tip of the iceberg.”

Napolitano added, “The real crime against him was that he had contact, he had access to emails of every member of Congress and he sold what he found in there. What did he sell and to whom did he sell it. That’s what the FBI wants to know. This may be a very, very serious national security investigation.”

Awan’s two brothers were fired in February, and barred from the computer networks at the House of Representatives. But Awan himself continued to work for Wasserman Schultz up until the day he was arrested at Washington Dulles International Airport, while attempting to board a flight out of the country.

In addition to his work for Wasserman Schultz—who, until her resignation as Democratic National chairwoman last summer, was one of the most powerful people in the Democratic Party—Awan had access to the emails of multiple members of Congress. He also had access to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s iPad.

Awan is alleged to have stolen a number of secrets from his superiors in the House of Representatives, housed on hard drives that he smashed before attempting to flee to Pakistan.

The FBI is continuing to investigate Awan. Despite mounting evidence about his intentions, so far, he’s only been charged with bank fraud.
