MCCARTHY July 29, 2017 4:00 AM @ANDREWCMCCARTHY There’s more than bank fraud going on here. In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud. Yet bank fraud was the stated charge on which Awan was arrested at Dulles Airport this week, just as he was trying to flee the United States for Pakistan, via Qatar. That is the same route taken by Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, in March, when she suddenly fled the country, with three young daughters she yanked out of school, mega-luggage, and $12,400 in cash. By then, the proceeds of the fraudulent $165,000 loan they’d gotten from the Congressional Federal Credit Union had been sent ahead. It was part of a $283,000 transfer that Awan managed to wire from Capitol Hill. He pulled it off — hilariously, if infuriatingly — by pretending to be his wife in a phone call with the credit union. Told that his proffered reason for the transfer (“funeral arrangements”) wouldn’t fly, “Mrs.” Awan promptly repurposed: Now “she” was “buying property.” Asking no more questions, the credit union wired the money . . . to Pakistan.

Unfortunately… SHE”S BACK..
The Democratic Party is no stranger to criminal investigations
Employee of Corruption Magnet Debbie Wasserman Schultz Under Criminal Investigation
The New York Observer 5 hours ago
After her embarrassing resignation from her role as DNC chair, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz hid from the spotlight for months. However, she is back, and, once again, linked to a corruption scandal. Politico reported on February 6 that Imran Awan, who is currently employed by Wasserman Schultz, is under criminal investigation for “wide-range equipment and data theft.” Wasserman Schultz’s communications director provided Politico with few details into the investigation and refused to answer any followup questions. Relatives of Awan—including Hina Alvi, Abid Awan and Jamal Awan—are implicated in the investigation as well. Hina Alvi is currently employed by Rep. Gregory Meeks.
“Five House staffers are accused of stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network, according to multiple sources briefed on the investigation,” Politico reported, noting that no one that they contacted provided any information.

“I am humbled to be able to to participate here in paying tribute to some of the extraordinary Americans, whose footsteps paved the way for me and my generation,” Booker said at the Capitol Visitor Center last year. “I feel blessed and honored to have partnered with Sen. Sessions in being the Senate sponsors of this important award.”
Booker was speaking at the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony, at which Sessions was present. The award is presented by Congress to those whose achievements have had a profound impact on American history and culture, and was being given to the 1965 Foot Soldiers for persevering to help see the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Oakland fire chief says Ghost Ship may have fallen off radar

(CNN)Oakland, California’s fire chief acknowledged Thursday the department’s prevention efforts, which include conducting safety inspections of sites such as the Ghost Ship warehouse where at least 36 people died last week, have been hampered by years of budget cuts and hiring freezes.
“Was it the best?” Chief Teresa Deloach Reed said in an exclusive interview with CNN. “No, it wasn’t.”
Reed said department officials were still trying to determine if and when the warehouse on 31st Avenue had ever been inspected by her department. She said it was unclear if the structure was even in the department’s database.
“Right now we are looking through our records,” Deloach Reed said. “I can’t tell you anything right now about that warehouse.”
She added, “But I can tell you that our current fire marshal and the city and the attorneys are all working with the fire department, building and planning, trying to give a definitive answer as to at what point did anyone have access to that warehouse.”
