Now it is eight months of delays and bad excuses.
Imran Awan’s March court date has been delayed again, this time until May.
And no one seems to be saying why.
This is getting ridiculous.
It is beyond rare for a federal criminal ‘bank fraud’ case to be granted this many delays and continuances.
We stopped counting how many continuances this is. Five? Six?
The Swamp is running scared and U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan is helping to provide the cover.
Chutkan, who is presiding over the Imran Awan and Hina Alvi fraud case, was appointed to the federal bench by Obama after she kicked thousands in campaign donations to his presidential campaign when he was a U.S. Senator in Illinois, records confirm.
Obama also appointed Chutkan’s husband, Peter Krauthamer, a judge to the bench in the District of Columbia Superior Court in 2011.
Krauthamer’s mother, and Chutkan’s mother-in-law, also contributed campaign cash to Obama, records confirm.
And Chutkan’s former law firm, where she worked until her appointment to the federal bench in 2014, currently represents Huma Abedin, the wife of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The firm also is stacked with Democratic lawyers who worked for Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and Barack Obama’s White House, just to name a few D.C. insiders.
If Obama or his administration is implicated in the expanding Awan Congressional probe they likely have little to worry about.
These revelations damper rank-and-file FBI agents who are pressing to expand the case to encompass Awan’s two brothers and press an indictment for selling intelligence gleaned and possibly stolen from Congressional IT network the Awams were charged with safeguarding.
“It’s rigged from almost every angle,” a frustrated FBI insider said.
