George Webb, a citizen journalist with Crowdsource the Truth, fleshes out the latest chapter in a major scandal involving Imran Awan, a mysterious Pakistan-born IT engineer who through high-level contacts in the Democratic Party set up a family business handling restricted accounts of dozens of Democratic members of Congress.
On July 24, federal agents arrested Awan at Dulles International Airport on bank-fraud charges as he attempted to leave the country. His wife, Hina Awan, in a separate but related action, also has been charged with bank fraud.
Webb has been untangling an intriguing web that appears to connect Awan and his unusual family business to Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the ousted leader of the Democratic National Committee.
In following the trails of this story, Webb has been encountering a dark, criminal underworld that one would hardly suspect is connected to the world of politics.
