Imran Awan’s Judicial “Request” Shows He’s Still Trying To Flee To Pakistan
Imran Awan’s Judicial “Request” Shows He’s Still Trying To Flee To Pakistan by DUANE NORMAN – FMShooter
On Friday, Imran Awan was formally arraigned in federal court on four felony fraud charges. As The Daily Caller notes, Awan was accompanied by Chris Gowen, who The Daily Signal has already exposed for his lengthy connections to the Clinton family:
His official bio on the firm’s website notes that he “left the Public Defender’s office to work for former President William Jefferson Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton. Chris was a fact checker for President Clinton’s memoir, ‘My Life.’”
“He also served as a traveling aid for President Clinton’s national and international trips. Chris finished his tenure with the Clintons by directing the advance operations for then-Senator Hillary Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign.”
For a family that claims to be in dire straits financially (in spite of their high-paying salaries they earned working for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz), they seem to have more than enough money to pay Gowen, who almost certainly has a very high price tag to retain his legal services. However, as The Daily Caller elaborated, Gowen is pulling out every trick in the book to attempt to facilitate Awan’s flight to Pakistan:
Gowen asked that Imran Awan’s GPS monitoring bracelet be removed, citing that Imran might need to attend to an emergency with his children. In a press conference outside court, Gowen admitted that the children are in Pakistan and refused to explain the discrepancy.
“His ability to parent, which may well be single parenting, if there is an emergency…” Gowen said.
So Gowen, without directly admitting it to the court, has all but admitted he is trying to help Awan flee to Pakistan. After all, that’s where Awan’s wife, Hina Alvi, and his three children currently reside, in spite of the fact that Alwi has been indicted alongside Awan.
