Former Democratic National Convention chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz continues to have skeletons in her closet regarding her IT adviser, Imran Awan.
Awan and several of his family members were found guilty of multiple felonies in regards to government property and money laundering.
But Awan took a plea deal to snitch on Schultz. But newly released police reports are out that the women Awan was in relationships with, allege he was physically and mentally abusing them.
“Officers found one of the women bloodied and she told them she “just wanted to leave,” while the second said she felt like a “slave,” according to Fairfax County Police reports obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group. A third woman claimed she was being kept “in captivity.”
The third woman is Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, who said in court documents that Awan invoked his authority as a congressional employee to intimidate immigrant women, in part by telling them he had the power to have people kidnapped.”
Gilani alleges that Awan treated her and many others very inhumanely.
“She continued: ‘Imran Awan did admit to me that my phone is tapped and there are devices installed in my house to listen my all conversations … Imran Awan introduces himself as someone from US Congress or someone from federal agencies … Imran Awan manages to have police mobile based on his position in US congress or Federal Agencies to escort him during his visit to Pakistan.’
Separately, Gilani told TheDCNF that Imran ‘captivated me in house for a long time.’ She accused him of storing ill-gotten money in his father’s name, and said that as she mourned the father’s death, Imran was focused on getting her to sign papers giving him rights to that money.”
Wasserman Schultz should be ashamed of herself for many reasons. But continuing to protect a criminal and violent abuser is at the top of the list.
