OA EXCLUSIVE: Imran Awan Was a Top Democrat Staffer By Day, Hezbollah Money Launderer By Night

As a side business, Awan became involved in a used car dealership known as “CIA”. On the surface, CIA seemed like any other used car dealership.


Imran Awan started his Washingtonian career as an IT staffer for Florida Democrat Congressman Robert Wexler in 2004. Thirteen years later, after working as an IT staffer for dozens of Democrats in Congress, Awan was charged with Bank Fraud, and is currently awaiting trial.
As a side business, Awan became involved in a used car dealership known as “CIA”. On the surface, CIA seemed like any other used car dealership.
Upon further investigation, reporters at The Daily Caller discovered several glaring discrepancies at CIA Used Cars. On the dealership’s Facebook page, they name employees that did not exist. On fictional staffer displayed on CIA’s Facebook page was known as “James Falls O’Brien”. Another was known as “Jade Julia”. The images displayed for the two non-existent employees came from online stock images.

When a customer would walk into CIA to buy a used car, CIA’s main managing Partner, Abid Awan (Imran Awan’s brother), would cross the street and purchase that exact model of car from an adjacent dealership known as AAA Motors.

Nasir Khattak testified in a lawsuit that “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.” He continued, saying in part “There was no documentation… 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.”
Imran Awan racked up more than $7 Million in pay from Congressional IT work, while also running multiple other side businesses. Even so, Awan frequently haggled in court over relatively minuscule amounts of money.
Was Awan the most frugal man in the world? Or was he laundering money through a dubious used car scheme?
On Sunday, Politico released a comprehensive report dissecting the Obama Administration’s efforts to side-track Hezbollah’s organized crime network, which engaged in drug dealing, human trafficking and money laundering. According to well-placed federal law enforcement sources, one of Hezbollah’s favorite money laundering techniques involved buying used cars with cash derived from the sale of illegal drugs inside the United States and then shipping those cars to the West Coast of Africa.  After the used cars were shipped to Africa, usually into the Port of Cotonou in Benin, they would be converted back into cash which would be split between Iran and various factions of the Hezbollah terror network.
Evidence is mounting that Awan was one spoke in the wheel of Hezbollah’s massive terror network. If indeed this is the case, it raises serious questions about how Awan was able to participate in felony money-laundering......
