Wasserman Schultz staffer arrested trying to leave the country

Imran Awan 37 was arrested trying to board a flight at Virginia's Dulles Airport. He was on his way to Qatar and then Pakistan

Fox News reported that Awan was arrested at Dulles International Airport Tuesday after buying a ticket to Pakistan on Monday with a return ticket for January. Awan declared bankruptcy in 2012, but has made millions of dollars on the House payroll over at least a decade of work for various members, according to a Politico report.

The feds nabbed Imran Awan at Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C.as he prepared to board a flight to Lahore, Pakistan, reported Politico.

The 37-year-old Awan of Lorton, Virginia, was arraigned Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on one count of bank fraud.

Awan's attorney told CBS News that his client was told he was cleared for flying and blamed "anti-Muslim bigotry" for the attacks on him. Awan is also suspected of disclosing sensitive information of the lower house of Congress to outside sources. According to Fox News, Awan has been charged with bank fraud.

The feds nabbed Pakistani-born Imran Awan - who was the target of a federal investigation for allegedly being involved in theft and IT abuses while working for the Democratic National Committee, according to The Daily Caller.

Schultz's spokesman David Damron said in a statement that Awan was sacked on Tuesday, according to the broadcaster. "No charges, evidence or findings from the investigation have been formally shared with our office, so we can not comment on them", Damron said, according to Fox News. The affidavit specifically alleged he engaged in a scheme to defraud a Congressional Federal Credit Union. Five total House employees were investigated for stealing computers and other electronics.

Awan, who was hired in 2005, was reportedly in possession of an iPad used by then-DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz, a Florida representative, around the time that DNC emails were leaked to WikiLeaks. Until this point, she had resisted USCP efforts to look at her computer - even suggesting "consequences" for the agency if the computer was not promptly returned. Majority had cut ties with Awan after the accusations came out, but Wasserman Schultz actually kept him on the payroll in an advisory capacity; that ended Tuesday. A Marine corps veteran and his Navy Officer wife now occupy the home and he discovered "wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner".
