An IT aide to various House Democrats who was indicted in August on several counts, including bank fraud, was sending money and gifts to government officials in Pakistan and received protection from the police there, according to multiple relatives, The Daily Caller reported on Tuesday.

According to the relatives, the IT aide, Imran Awan, and his brothers were also sending IT equipment, such as iPhones, to Pakistan during the same time period in which fraudulent purchase orders for those items were made in the House in an alleged elaborate scheme, and in which congressional equipment reportedly went missing from the office of a congressman for whom Awan worked.

Awan and other family members worked for 45 Democratic House members until they were banned this past February after it was revealed there were 5,400 unauthorized logins to congressional servers and the funneling of large amounts of data off the congressional network.

Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, who worked for Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, were indicted after sending hundreds of thousands of dollars to Pakistan for what they said was a land deal.

Wasserman Schultz was criticized for continuing to use Awan's services for months after he had been fired by Congress and banned from the House's IT network and until his arrest, Fox News reported.

Dan Perrin, a former Senate Committee on Foreign Relations staffer, told the Daily Caller there is a risk that the payments Awan allegedly made to police there could indicate ties to Pakistani authorities, such as the country's intelligence agency.
