Hezbollah, Money Laundering, Drugs, IT, and Awans ...

Power Line makes an interesting potential connection today. We all recall the nice Awans don't we? They worked IT for Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and lots of her fellow Democrats who shared their services.

The Awans handled IT for leading House Democrats and, though this work, had access to highly sensitive intelligence information. Indeed, they performed IT services for at least three members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed them on a shared basis.

As part of their duties, the Awans would have had easy access to privileged information on both foreign affairs and intel as a side effect of whom they were working for and what they did.

They were originally caught stealing computer equipment, but there may be more to this story. And it may be why DWS is so worried about investigations being done.

Politico released this story on Hezbollah drug trafficking and money laundering.

This story outlines an anti-trafficking that was shut down by the Obama admin in order to get the Iran deal done.

An ambitious U.S. task force targeting Hezbollah's billion-dollar criminal enterprise ran headlong into the White House's desire for a nuclear deal with Iran.

Now I am pretty sure this article has already found it's way here and been talked over, but there is one relevant detail that may connect to the Awans' story in it.

They followed coc aine shipments, some from Latin America to West Africa and on to Europe and the Middle East, and others through Venezuela and Mexico to the United States. They tracked the river of dirty cash as it was laundered by, among other tactics, buying American used cars and shipping them to Africa. And with the help of some key cooperating witnesses, the agents traced the conspiracy, they believed, to the innermost circle of Hezbollah and its state sponsors in Iran.

Cash was being laundered through used cars and used car dealerships as part of this ring.

Guess what the Awans had? Yep ... a used car dealership.

Raisley also says the Awans controlled a limited liability corporation called Cars International A (CIA), a car dealership with odd finances that took, but did not repay, a $100,000 loan from one Dr. Ali Al-Attar. According to Raisley, laundering money through used car dealerships is a known Hezbollah tactic.

Raisley also cites a former CIA officer who says Dr. Attar, the man who loaned the Awans car dealership $100,000, “was observed in Beirut, Lebanon conversing with a Hezbollah official” in 2012, shortly after the loan was made.

So, were the Awans a part of this Hezbollah sceme? And if so, what are the implications for the IT scandal since they did have access to so many secrets through their jobs working in the House?

The more that is dug up the more all of this stuff reminds me of a episode of Homeland.. Which I really do enjoy watching as long as the bad guys are put down.

I just thought the potential connections were very interesting.
