37-year-old Imran Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in DC on Monday the following day Wasserman Schultz fired him as her IT specialists. The mans wife has already departed to Pakistan and posses a return flight in September, authorities say they do not believe she ever intended to return.

Awans attorney said he followed procedure informing the House of his travel plans prior to his scheduled trip. Onlookers have suggested this is an example of the current administrations Muslim phobia. FBI officials say, the IT specialists purchased a flight to Doha, Qatar on to Lahore, Pakistan and a return flight for a date in January 2018.

The rental was also used as collateral for the loan, when authorities made the claim that the couple no longer lived at the address an investigation was launched. Awan’s wife was stopped and questioned in February while leaving the country with $12,000 cash, she was allowed to continue her journey.

An affidavit was filed with the criminal complaint saying there is probable cause to believe that Awan and his wife Hina Alvi attempted to scheme to defraud the Congressional Federal Credit Union.
