A preliminary hearing in federal court for Imran Awan, the former IT aide for a group of Congressional Democrats who was arrested and charged with bank fraud in late July, is likely to be delayed until the end of this month or early September, after Awan’s lawyers told the court of a schedule conflict.

Originally, a federal judge had set a hearing for Awan on August 21, but on Thursday, papers were filed with a federal court here that “requests that the hearing be continued and rescheduled for any time available on the Court’s calendar from August 30 to September 1, 2017.”

Filing - Prosecutors - Motion

The filing indicated that federal prosecutors had signed off on the motion.

Awan, his wife, and two brothers had been employed by a number of Democrats in the U.S. House, doing IT and other office computer work on a shared basis, until early February, when a still undisclosed incident caused them to lose the right to access the House IT system.

Democrats - Ties - Awan - Family - Members

While most Democrats then cut ties with the Awan family members immediately, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) continued to employ Awan and his wife on a part-time basis.

Records show Wasserman Schultz was the only lawmaker to pay Awan for the entire first quarter of 2017, paying him $1,494.45. He had been paid $5,000 per quarter by the Florida Democrat through 2016.
