The FBI is looking into serious violations made by a former congressional information technology aide and his family.
While working as an IT aide for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Imran Awan and his brother ran a used car dealership in Virginia.
The dealership is now suspected as a front for an overseas money laundering operation, allegedly taking money from a Hezbolla-linked fugitive.
At least seven million dollars in congressional funds also went to the dealership as well.
Awan was arrested in July and was charged with multiple federal charges including bank fraud and conspiracy.
He is currently facing fraud charges, and being electronically monitored.
