POTENTIALLY MASSIVE! Former DNC Aides In Hot Water The plot thickens with the saga of the IT workers who worked for Democrats like Debbie Wasserman Schultz. They had access to congressional emails and were quite shady. They made millions just disappear. Is this a case of money laundering to fund terrorism?
Over Possible Money Laundering Scheme to Fund Terrorism Overseas
The Daily Caller’s Luke Rosiak described it best with this tweet:
“Need to take $100k in Hezbollah-linked cash while you can read intelligence committee members’ emails, as their IT guy? Set up a used car dealership with fake staff, launder it from Iraq thru realtors commissions, and lie about it on House disclosures.”

The used car dealerships known as CIA never seemed like an ordinary car dealership, with inventory, staff and expenses.
On its Facebook page, CIA’s “staff” were fake personalities such as “James Falls O’Brien,” whose photo was taken from a hairstyle model catalog, and “Jade Julia,” whose image came from a web page called “Beautiful Girls Wallpaper.”
If a customer showed up looking to buy a car from Cars International A, often referred to as CIA, Abid Awan — who was managing partner of the dealership while also earning $160,000 handling IT for House Democrats — would frequently simply go across the street to longstanding dealership called AAA Motors and get one.
“If AAA borrows a car to Cars International and they have a customer, it was simply take the car across the street and sell it, and then later on give the profit back or not,” Nasir Khattak, who ran the longstanding AAA dealership, testified in a lawsuit. “There was no documentation which is write every transaction that takes place. … If you go and try to dissect, you will not be able to make any sense out of them because there were many, dozens and dozens, of cars transferred between the two dealerships and between other people.”
Khattak did not explain why he would ruin his existing business to help the Awans. “All of those transactions was to support Cars International A from AAA Motors,” he testified. “That’s why I did not make any money from my dealership because my resources were supporting Cars International A.”
He said only Imran Awan knew what became of the money. “It was Imram, [Abid] Awan’s brother, who was running the business in full control,” he said.
Imran Awan and his family members were congressional IT aides who investigators said made unauthorized access to the House Democratic Caucus server thousands of times. At the same time as they worked for and could read all the emails of members of the House intelligence, homeland security and foreign affairs committees, they also ran a car dealership that took money from a Hezbollah-linked fugitive and whose financial books were indecipherable and business patterns bizarre, according to testimony in court records.
While Imran and Abid Awan ran their car dealership in Falls Church, Va. in the early part of the decade, Drug Enforcement Agency officials a few miles away in Chantilly were learning that the Iranian-linked terrorist group frequently deployed used car dealerships in the US to launder money and fund terrorism, according to an explosive new Politico expose.
The money that disappeared between the Awans’ dealership, some $7 million in congressional pay, the equipment suspected of disappearing from Congress under their watch, and their other side businesses — all while they displayed few signs of wealth and frequently haggled in court over small amounts of money — raise questions about whether the Awans might have been laundering money or sending it to a third party.
And this little gem...
Project Cassandra - Obama let Hezbollah run cocaine in the U.S. This isn’t a story from the far-right fringe. Leftwing Politico broke this story.
“In 2008, the DEA launched ‘Project Cassandra’ to track Hezbollah’s trafficking of drug and weapons, money laundering and other criminal activities, some of which were happening in the U.S. As Project Cassandra carried on, the Obama administration threw a series of roadblocks in its way, Politico reported Sunday. When investigators sought approval for prosecutions, arrests, and financial sanctions, the Justice Department and Treasury Department officials delayed, hindered, or denied their requests, the report said.
“‘This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision,’ Defense Department illicit finance analyst David Asher said. ‘They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down,'” and it was all to make sure the Iran deal didn’t get “derailed.” Now, the Iran deal is Obama’s grand achievement of ensuring that the Iranians will secure nuclear weapons in less than 10 years, if they’re not already on the precipice. In order to not derail that, Obama told his Justice Department and Treasury department to stop pursuing Hezbollah as they’re running cocaine into the U.S. conducting money laundering.
It’s a bombshell!
It’s a literal bombshell that nobody knows about, even though it is in The Politico.

What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night, the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
