Why Is Imran Awan Getting a Plea Deal?

The case of Imran Awan, the former IT aide of Democrats, has been largely hidden from view.

Imran Awan may get a plea deal, but we don’t know the terms of it.

The Fox News print story below doesn’t mention that this may have been related to hacks that are currently and baselessly blamed on the Russians. Listen to Lou Dobbs interview an investigative reporter for the Daily Caller:

If this is correct, the Jeff Sessions-run Justice Department is covering up a huge breach showing Muslim chain-migrants directly threatening national security and working with a foreign government!

Fox News reports, “Ex-Dem IT aide Imran Awan poised for plea deal, after months of mysterious delays.

Imran Awan, the former IT aide to congressional Democrats whose federal court case has drawn the interest of President Trump, is poised to strike a plea deal with prosecutors, court filings indicate.

A Tuesday filing said a plea agreement hearing for Awan and his wife Hina Alvi has been set for July 3 before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan in Washington.

The filing did not reveal any details about the terms of the apparent agreement. But in court documents last month, prosecutors hinted that a deal could be in the works.

“The parties are currently exploring a possible resolution of this matter,” prosecutors wrote. “Therefore, the parties are requesting additional time in which to explore that resolution.”

Awan’s attorney, Christopher J. Gowen, nevertheless kept the door open Wednesday to the possibility that a deal might not be finalized.

“A plea happens in court,” Gowen said in an email to Fox News. “A plea does not happen outside of court. We anticipate that by July 3rd we will either enter a plea or the case will be set for trial.”

William Miller, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, declined to discuss the developments, saying, “We typically do not comment on pending cases and have no comment on this particular matter.”

The federal court case against Awan has been hit with repeated delays over the last six months — a situation fueled by allegations in the media that, according to his attorney, have piqued the curiosity of prosecutors.
