Imran Awan, Debbie Washerman Schultz’s (D-FL) beleaguered IT staffer, has reportedly been arrested on multiple charges of bank fraud.

According to Fox News’s Chad Pergram, the arrest took place as Awan was attempting to flee the United States.

As The Hill reports, Awan is currently accused of being “at the center of a scheme that involved double-charging the House for IT equipment, and may have also exposed House information online.”

According to a POLITICO report, Awan earned millions during his time working for various Democratic House members.

In light of the allegations against him, many of those House Democrats fired Awan in March.

He apparently remained on Wasserman Schultz’s payroll until today, however.

News of Awan’s arrest today comes following reports that the FBI seized destroyed hard drives from his home earlier this year.

As reported previously, The Daily Caller claims to have spoken to a number of sources who confirm that the FBI seized the hard drives from Awan’s home after he rented the property out to a military family who grew suspicious over the destroyed components in the house.

Awan allegedly went through great lengths to get the hard drives back, even threatening to sue the military family who turned them over to authorities.

“You would think that Debbie Wasserman Schultz would say, ‘I can’t believe my IT guy was allegedly hacking. I want him prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,'” The Daily Caller’s Luke Rosiak wrote of the matter.

To the contrary, Wasserman Schultz has been quite defensive – and even offensive.

News of Awan’s arrest has prompted much chatter online.

    We need a REAL Attorney General, not a weak man like Sessions. Clay Higgins is the man to kick ass and start locking up those who are responsible for causing harm to our country.
